STEP ONE – Registration
The cost of the class is $75 for new applicants (Sign-up with a friend and we will give you both a $25 discount),
the cost for renewal applicants is $50. A $50 deposit is required, renewal applicants will be considered paid in full new applicants
can pay the balance when they arrive at class (Check or cash only please). As of September 1 2013 renewal applicants are no longer
required to take a class but are still required to understand all the laws involving the use of force and deadly force for that reason
we strongly recommend you take the classroom portion of the course for your own protection and peace of mind.
