Great way to get your carry permit. The company support was excellent when I needed help and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to take this course.

A smart way to get your carry permit when you want it... right now! I took the class and the test followed by my live fire portion then was able to apply for my LTC.

Michelle B.

I was a bit skeptical at first. After I got my LTC-101 in the mail I took it to my local range to finish up the range exam. Now a few weeks later I got my LTC. Thanks!
