The objective of this comprehensive safety course is to provide the student with the knowledge required to safely own, carry, and shoot a firearm. It is designed to exceed New Jersey’s training requirements for citizens seeking to apply for their New Jersey permit to carry a handgun.
There will be a review of marksmanship fundamentals, holster draws, and time to practice. However, this qualification requires that the individual is already comfortable handling their firearm, to include reloading and working from a holster.
