Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never held a gun before. Is the Introduction to Handguns class good for me?

Yes, this class is designed for a person who has little to no familiarity with firearms.

What is the minimum age requirement?

The minimum age to apply for a Nevada Concealed Carry permit is 21, so students in our concealed carry course must be age 20 or older, as applicants must apply within one year of taking the course.  The only exception is for active duty military or veterans age 18-20.

For all other courses, a parent or guardian must accompany any children under the age of 18.  We ask you, the parent, “Do you feel comfortable with the child next to you using a loaded firearm?”

Do you offer classes for "Women Only?"

No, the lessons and techniques we teach apply to everyone.  Usually female students account for 40% to 60% of every class.

How big are the classes?

Class size usually ranges from 10 to 30 students.

What happens if I sign up for a class but can't make it?

All payments are nonrefundable.  Payments may be applied to a future course that suits your schedule, at the sole discretion of The Gun School.

How much are the state application fees for a concealed carry permit?

As of this writing, they are $96.25 for initial applications and $61.25 for renewal applications.  These fees are charged by the state of Nevada and are in addition to the cost of your course at The Gun School.
