Make a list of your local gun stores. Do an online search for them and see what services they offer. One of my very local stores does firearms training and the guy doing the training is a retired police trainer. So, I think I will take his course even though I have had my carry permit for some time.

What state are you in that allowed you to get a CHL in what sounds like no time at all?

NC is pretty quick with concealed carry permits. Lots of people get a confirmation letter well before they expected to receive the good news.

Here are three video's that will start you down the right path - - - find a good local range and sign up for their NRA classes - - - you owe it to yourself and family.

Be safe and have fun, may you never need to use the skills you willl aquire!

Three ‘courses’:

One, basic firearm safety course. The NRA website is good for finding one. http://www.nrainstructors.org/searchcourse.aspx

Two, marksmanship principles & practice. I’ve found a few rounds frequently are better than lots of rounds infrequently.

Three, moral, legal and other implications of actually carrying and, god forbid, using your handgun. Legal can depend on your location.

Wow! Texas takes at least 8 weeks after the class to receive the license...

As a general rule to keep in mind, you can never have enough firearms training or experience. An accomplished expert can still fall victim to complacency. Get into a beginner course and get gun-handling safety drilled into your head and become completely familiar with the workings of your firearm and its mechanisms. Gun stores and shooting ranges in your area should be able to steer you in the right direction.

Welcome to the world of gun ownership. Along with great responsibility comes amazing fun.
