At The Armories, we take pride in firearm safety and personal protection, as such, we offer the training required for the Florida Concealed Weapons Permit. To meet those requirements, we offer a Basic Pistol Safety Course as well as using UTM Simunition for our live fire portion of the course. UTM Simunitions are used by the U.S Military, numerous Law Enforcement Agencies and multiple agencies worldwide. Our staff is trained and certified in the use of the specialized munitions to ensure a safe and realistic shooting environment during your time here.
Our Basic Pistol Safety Course will allow you to meet the requirements as set forth by the State of Florida.
