DeHLTA currently offers the following classes:
Colorado Concealed Handgun Permit - Range Class                                                                    $175.00
This course is designed for the person who needs more in the way of range time and is confident they can do the
classroom portion on their own. The course consists of the student reading the Colorado Concealed Handgun book before
their scheduled range day - then a 1 hour review with a question and answer session at the range before we begin
shooting. After the review and Q & A the student will have 6 to 8 hours of firing on the range.

The class starts with some homework. Approximately two weeks before the class, students will be given the CHP
handbook to read. During the first hour of class safety is covered and any questions the student may have from reading
the book are covered. The next 6 to 8 hours are used for building a suitable skill level with a handgun.

Shooting will consist of marksmanship drills, weapon's handling drills covering immediate and remedial action drills,
administrative, combat and tactical reloads.

Students will need a suitable safe carry handgun, a concealment holster, at least 1 magazine or speed loader and 200
rounds of ammunition.

This course meets and exceeds the state standard for training to obtain a Colorado Concealed Hand Gun Permit.

In Home Firearms Safety Course/Evaluation                                                                    $100.00 / hour

what to do if they need to handle your weapon for any reason - even just to pick it up and move it.

choose the best means of safe storage for your weapon.
