Specifically designed for those who already own and shoot a handgun and wish to obtain their Colorado CCW/CHP – Concealed Handgun Permit.  Handgun manipulation, marksmanship competency and holster or purse are required.

The CHP Basic course teaches students the knowledge, skills and attitude essential for avoiding dangerous confrontations and for the safe, effective and responsible use of a concealed pistol for self-defense outside the home:

  • Apply NRA Safe Gun handling practices while carrying a concealed handgun outside the home.
  • Proper mindset and planning for concealed carry
  • The essential skills and techniques needed to prevail in a life-threatening situation
  • Presentation from concealment
  • Multiple shooting positions.

This is not a beginner course.  This is part an official advanced NRA course.  It is for shooters who have already developed competency in safety, marksmanship, maintenance and operation of their handgun.  This five (5) hour course is delivered by an NRA Certified Instructor in the advanced NRA PPOTH Course (Personal Protection Outside the Home).  Content and materials presented are delivered directly from the NRA PPOTH course and may be applied towards the full course credential, should the student wish to do so with the instructor.  

Students will receive a certificate upon completion of the course and ‘live fire’ range qualification.  Students will need their own handgun, holster (or purse), spare magazines and up to 100 rounds of ammunition.  Holsters, Purses, magazines and ammunition are available at The Shootist Pistol Range.
