Concealed Pistol License (CPL CCW) Classes
Personal protection is everyone’s responsibility for yourself and your family. An increasing number of people are choosing to protect themselves with a permit to carry a concealed pistol. The state of Michigan will grant concealed pistol licenses to applicants that have attended mandatory gun training, and this the class that meets the requirements to apply for your concealed pistol license (CPL / CCW).
Our class is taught by MCOLES and NRA-certified instructors
We start by covering gun safety and some practical exercises on the fundamentals of marksmanship. Afterwards, we cover the legal aspects with a Michigan attorney. After the legal part, we head to a local range to do the live fire shooting. After shooting about 100 rounds (ammo and guns are available for rent/purchase at the range), we head back to the classroom to finish up with some tactics before issuing a certificate for successful completion of the class.

What to Bring to Class
You will need writing pad and pen/pencil and your pistol you intend to use for the range. Your pistol should be in a case and unloaded for transportation in your vehicle and that is how we expect it to be brought into the classroom. Absolutely no ammunition in class, please. You can use any caliber pistol for this class. Bring any snacks or drinks you may want throughout the day. Coffee, water, and doughnuts/bagels will be provided in the morning. ATHG Tactical does have various pistols available to rent. If you will be renting one of ATHG’s pistols you will need to make arrangements in advance. If you do not already own a pistol, renting is a great way to find out what you like or what fits your needs best.

What you Need for the Range
You will need a minimum of 100 rounds for your pistol. This does not account for any extra shooting required to be able to complete the course of fire (if needed). You will need to bring safety glasses and hearing protection (electronic preferred so you can hear range commands). You will need to wear seasonally appropriate clothing. Shirts should have a round collar to prevent the unauthorized access of brass into your shirt. All shooting ranges used by ATHG are outdoor and will take place rain or shine so depending on weather you may need rain gear and certainly ned to dress appropriately for the weather. No open toed or open heal shoes!
