The requirements for the training needed to apply for a permit to
carry concealed firearms, handguns and/or "weapons," varies greatly
from one state to another. Rampart is certified to teach the
specific, required courses for both Nebraska, and Utah. We are also
certified by the NRA to teach a variety of approved courses which
meet the requirements for concealed carry in many other states, such
as Iowa and Florida.
Nebraska Concealed Handgun Permit
This course has been approved by the Nebraska State Patrol to meet
the specific requirements for obtaining a permit to carry a
concealed handgun in the state of Nebraska. This class is NOT for
first time shooters. The expectation is that anyone trying to earn a
permit to carry a concealed handgun is already an experienced
shooter. The classroom portion of this course is a minimum of eight
hours, followed by a live fire shooting qualification on the range.
Rampart completes their shooting qualifications on an indoor range,
so there is never a reschedule due to weather. Classroom course work
and the range qualification are completed on the same day.
Iowa Concealed Weapons Permit
The requirements to apply for a Concealed Weapons Permit in Iowa
are very flexible. EVERY course offered by Rampart meets the
requirements in Iowa to apply for a carry permit.
Private Lessons for First Time
Rampart PerPro also teaches PRIVATE lessons for first time
shooters. In such a class we actually come to your home. We give
hands on instruction and explain/demonstrate the differences and
similarities between revolvers and semi-automatic pistols. You will
learn first hand what is meant by "single action" and "double
action." You will learn how to safely load and unload revolvers and
semi-automatic pistols using practice ammunition. We will cover the
importance of proper gun and ammunition storage, and how to safely
break down a variety of handguns for cleaning and maintenance. We
will cover all of the handgun shooting fundamentals such as stance,
grip, breath control, trigger control and aiming. Then we will
report to the firing range for 100% one-on-one instruction. You will
be taken onto the firing line with your own private instructor. You
will load and shoot both revolvers and semi-automatic pistols,
starting with .22 caliber target models, and moving up to higher
caliber handguns. You will shoot both "full frame" guns as well as
models that are specifically designed for concealed carry. These
classes are paid by the hour, and have a two hour minimum.
