Florida Concealed Weapons Course

In the State of Florida, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services “shall issue” a license to carry concealed weapons to citizens that meet a number of criteria as defined in Florida Statute 790.006. One of those criteria, FL Statute 760.006 (h), requires demonstration of competency with a firearm. For citizens without documentation of previous firearms training, the easiest way to demonstrate this competency is by attending a concealed weapons license course presented in accordance with Florida law.

The course consists of a classroom portion, followed by live fire on the range.
