For those needing to borrow a handgun for the range portion of this course, PPC will provide one.

Ammo Up-charge.  Unfortunately, I am no longer able to provide the ammo for the Concealed Carry Class.  The same 50 rd box of 9mm Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) that I paid $13 a box for in February of last year, is currently going for $45-50 per box.  When I checked at several gun shops the last week in February 2021, only 1 out of 3, had any 9mm ammo at all.  The only way for me to guarantee that ammo is available for your shoot qualification is to purchase the ammo ahead of time myself at current day prices!!!  Students will need a minimum of 50 rds of ammo for the shooting portion of the class. The current price for my ammo is $36 per box of 50 rds.

*REFUND POLICY: Personal Protection Consultants will refund anyone’s tuition up to 30 days prior to a class. If someone cannot make a class less than 30 days before a class, their tuition can be applied to any PPC class up to one calendar year after the original tuition was paid.
