Our instructors are highly experienced in preparing people of all backgrounds to have the confidence, knowledge and skills to be able to safely carry a concealed handgun.
Attending Range 54’s Carry Concealed Handgun class meets the requirements of the State of Kansas to obtain a CCH license. That being said, this class is not teaching you how to shoot, but when it is legal to shoot. If you have never shot before please consider an introductory class first. In 2021 the State of Kansas passed a law allowing 18-20 year olds to obtain a CCH license. Students in that age range must bring their own gun and ammunition. The law does not allow us to rent/loan guns or sell pistol caliber ammunition to people under 21. This class will be taught in a women’s only and co-ed class for the comfort of all our students.
