Sierra CCW will prepare you for the realities of concealed carry.

The internet is filled with self-proclaimed experts spouting unsupported claims.  There are on-line videos by the score, demonstrating unsafe and unrealistic methods of defending oneself with a handgun.  And those well-distributed firearms magazines are filled with over-the-top hype from manufacturers.  Unfortunately, many CCW instructors get their information from those sources. 

Sierra CCW focuses on real-world CCW instruction, with proven methods used by law enforcement, the personal defense industry, and many other reliable sources.  Our classes guide applicants through the CCW application process, and presents the most important information available on a multitude of topics that every CCW holder needs to know.

At Sierra CCW, you'll get up-to-date information and proven techniques that can better prepare you to handle potentially life-threatening situations. CCW laws, personal liability, the hidden pitfalls of many firearms, calibers, and holsters, even what to do if you get pulled over by police.  You'll get fully vetted, supported information, demonstrations, discussions on what works and why, ample time at the range using techniques that actually work.
