Piedmont Community College (PCC) will offer a Handgun Safety course on Friday, March 5, 5:30 – 9 p.m. and Saturday, March 6, 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. This $75 course fulfills the requirement for obtaining a concealed carry handgun permit.

Since 1995, N.C. citizens have had the right to carry concealed weapons, if they complete the Handgun Safety training program. The course will cover laws concerning the use of deadly force, laws governing areas concealed weapons may be carried, and rules and ideas for gun safety.

Steps to getting your conceal carry permit:

1) Take the Handgun Safety course (required course)

2) Apply for a permit through your sheriff’s department

Other requirements: US citizen, resident of NC for at least 30 days; 21 years of age or older; no indictments, felony record, violent misdemeanor, or impaired driving offense (in last three years).
