Good CHL classes near Leesburg or Tavares Florida

Recommended Posts


My daughter lives in the Leesburg/Tavares area in Florida. Any good instructors there and what does she need to do to get her CHL?

She does not, necessarily, need a "class". Florida wants proof that you've had some sort of training - that you know which end the bullet comes out.


Notice the first one on the list of OTHER ACCEPTABLE FORMS OF DOCUMENTATION. If she shoots cowboy, and had documents showing she shoots cowboy, that would work.





Florida law requires you to submit proof of competency with a firearm in order to qualify for a concealed weapon license. A copy of a CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION or similar document from any of the following courses or classes is acceptable:


any hunter education or hunter safety course approved by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission or a similar agency in another state;


any National Rifle Association firearms safety or training course;


any firearms safety or training course or class available to the general public offered by a law enforcement agency, junior college, college, or private or public institution or organization or firearms training school, utilizing instructors certified by the National Rifle Association, the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, or the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services;

any law enforcement firearms safety or training course or class offered for security officers, investigators, special

deputies, or any division or subdivision of law enforcement or security enforcement;


any firearms training or safety course or class conducted by a state-certified instructor or by an instructor certified by the National Rifle Association.


The copy of the training certificate/document must be clear and legible. The certificate/document must include your name, your instructors name, your instructors qualifications/credentials (National Rifle Association instructor, law enforcement firearms instructor, Class K Firearms Instructor licensed by the State of Florida, etc.), and your instructors license/

certification number.


Other acceptable forms of training documentation include the following:


documentary evidence of experience with a firearm obtained through participation in organized shooting competition;


active-duty military personnel may submit copies of any of the following documents that confirm your experience with a firearm gained during service: military orders including call to active-duty letter; a statement of military service signed by, or at the direction of, the adjutant, personnel officer, or commander of your unit or higher headquarters which identifies you and provides your date of entry for your current active-duty period;


former military personnel can submit a DD Form 214 reflecting honorable discharge from military service.
