    Default Concealed Carry Class in/near Centre County

    My son is a grad student at PSU. He is looking for a CC class somewhere near State College. Yes, I am aware that a CC class is not mandatory for the LTCF, but in discussing the LTCF with my son, I suggested that he take AT LEAST one class. That way, he hears all the legal, moral, etc. information from someone other than "Dad". He has some experience with firearms from shooting with me over the years, but he needs to hear all the stuff from a third-party. Any info regarding classes in the area would be helpful.

    There are many seasoned CC'ers in CenterCounty.
    Hanging out with them would be pretty effective to get info, and its free.

    Ron(Xringshooter) may host another get together soon too...

    There are few pistol training opportunities in Centre County at the moment. I had to drive to Pittsburgh a few years ago to get my first training course. Other courses I attended were in WV, MD, and one more locally. And a "Concealed Carry Class" generally does not exist. The NRA is the best source for classes, visit their site at http://www.nrainstructors.org/searchcourse.aspx

    You will see that prices vary, and the distances listed seem to be "as the crow flies"; actual driving mileage will be much more than listed on the NRA site.

    Starting with Basic Pistol, they go to Personal Defense Inside the Home and then Personal Defense Outside the Home, in that order. All cover concepts relating to concealed carry. Due to the distances from State College, it may be better to locate a Basic Pistol course near your home and he can visit you for the rest of that weekend.

    Yasu,
    Not a bad idea, I'll see how my schedule is and make a plan for a get together. Always good to get fellow shooters together to swap stories and show off guns. Great place to new shooters to get a ton of info. I'll work on it and let everyone know.

    I also would be interested in some classes after a life time of being around and having guns. It would seem to me there is likely enough interest in the area the NRA would be able to fill classes if they offered a course around here atleast for several classes since there has been nothe availible unless you go to CPI for the proffesional hand gun course.

    Early last year there was a training course locally put on by Centerpoint LLC. Most of their courses are done in the Bedford Area, and the one in State College was very reasonably priced. I have a couple of family members I want to send to Basic Pistol, but location, price, and dates never worked for them. May be worthwhile contacting them and if there is enough guaranteed attendance and a location to hold the course, it may work out. Or a group could carpool from here to go to Bedford.

    I'd be up for a get together too, and I'd love to do a CC class. After discussing CC with her, she said that was the only way she'd even start to feel comfortable with it.

    I cannot comment on what the others have planned here but if you want a structured course that covers everything call Jack Hazenstab at 944-8979. He is located in the Altoona area but he does a fantastic job.
