SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: FREE CCW training for school employees:Armed & Safe is offering free CCW classes for any school employee who can obtain written permission to carry at work, which is allowed under Nevada law. Company owner and lead instructor(18 years), Kelly Main, is an elementary public school teacher (16 years). In light of the tragedy in Connecticut, we feel that the publicity of school staff carrying concealed weapons could discourage planned attacks. When seconds count, police are just minutes away. Staff who know the layout of the school and the people on campus would have a better chance of surviving and eliminating the threat to others immediately.
Most schools already have employees who have a CCW permit.

Nevada is a shall issue state. A sheriff must provide a CCW permit to any citizen who takes an 8 hour course from a qualified CCW instructor within the state of Nevada, and who can pass an FBI background check (No felons, domestic violence convictions, restraining orders or recent DUI's). http://www.washoesheriff.com
Nevada course is $60. $50 for renewal.
County Sheriff's office will charge $97.50 for background check and processing. Must apply in person within a year of taking class. For this purpose we offer weekday classes beginning at 6am.
As of July 1st 2011 the Nevada permit will not list semi-auto's. They are one class and you will only need to qualify on one to be able to carry any semi-automatic pistol.
States that honor Nevada are shown in Blue. MI honors permits from residents of the issuingstate.AZ and VT do not require a permit to carry concealed within their states. http://handgunlaw.us
Utahis a well-recognized permit. Good for 5 years and only $51
through the mail. Utah is important for people who travel.
Renewal through the mail is $15. Utah signoff is
$25 when you take the Nevada course.
Florida If you want to be able to carry in Florida, then you might need this one.Our cost for Florida is an additional $15 when you take the Nevada course.
Arizona Nevada dropped recognition of AZ. For this reason we recomend getting the UT or FL permit if you wish to carry in more than the 25 states that will honor Nevada.After class you have a year to apply for NV, UT or FL.

Course of Fire is 25-30 rounds at a full silhouette target with all rounds kept in the 8-9-10 rings ( and 8x11 inch area - standard piece of paper) at 7 yards ( 21 feet = self-defense distance).

Relax, you're among friends. Our goal is to give you the best class possible to prepare you to carry a pistol for personal protection in the real world. This is where most of us live and we want you to be ready to defend yourself and your family when trouble comes looking for you. We also want you to avoid trouble by any means available to you. It's nice to carry a gun that you'll never need. Armed and Safe Firearms Training provides the best 8 hour instruction possible as required by the state of Nevada. We’re here to provide this course of training in a professional, fun and relaxed class. We’ve been teaching in Northern Nevada for over 18 years and have helped more citizens get their CCW permits than any other company in the area. People keep coming back to us because they feel comfortable during our class. From the most experienced competition and ex military or law enforcement, to first-time shooters, people tell us that they learned a lot from us in the classroom and on the range.
We are passionate about guns, 2nd Ammendment rights, training and improving your skills by improving our own through the study of shooting fundamentals, defensive pistol techniques, awareness and state and federal laws.
