How we do it:

 The classroom and the shooting range are both located in Palomino Valley, within a short drive of each other, so we can start at 8 am and finish at 4:30 pm.

How to sign up for a class

  • Click the calendar button at the top of this page and find a date that works for you
  • Call us at 775.842.6409 to reserve your seat in the class by credit card. If you prefer to send a check by US Mail, you must do so at least two weeks in advance of the course date to allow time for the check to clear.
  • We do not use an online signup method for this class. You must call us at 775.842.6409. Why? Because phone conversations are far more secure than online communications, especially when sensitive information and credit cards are involved.
  • If you need a private class for yourself or your own group, we will work with you on scheduling a date that suits you. Call owner/instructor John Glatthar  at 775.842.6409
  • Initial CCW classes begin promptly at 9:00 am in our classroom in Palomino Valley.  Detailed directions with a map will be emailed to you once you sign up for the course. Please do not go to the mailing address on Pyramid Highway! That is not the classroom.
  • Cancellations and time changes may occur due to weather, road conditions, or other factors.
  • “No shows” with no call ahead will forfeit payment for the class.  An email or text is not sufficient – you must call the instructor at 775.842.6409.
