Question: Will you travel to teach a concealed carry class in another part of the state?

 

 Answer: Possibly..... I have very limited availability to schedule extra classes beyond my normal schedule, if you want to schedule a class somewhere other than Lincoln we would be happy to discuss with you. If you have a classroom (or even in your home) and access to a range we will come to you to teach a class. Contact Chris Zeeb if you are interested in doing this.    chris@neccwtraining.com

********************************************************************************************************************

 

 

Question: What do I need to bring to class?

 

 Answer: NOTE: KEEP THE FIREARM AND AMMO LOCKED IN YOUR VEHICLE. DO NOT BRING THEM INTO THE CLASSROOM.

 

1) A pen and a notepad for taking notes.

 

2) Handgun that you plan to carry. Please we prefer no .22 target pistols. (If you plan to carry a small .22 revolver or .22 pocket pistol, that is acceptable. (The firearm needs to be in a case or holster and UNLOADED)

 

3) 100 rounds factory ammunition (no handloads/reloads)

 

4) Your VALID Nebraska Drivers License or Nebraska ID or Military ID.

 

5) A Holster (All holsters must completely cover the trigger) (No cross draw or 

shoulder holster rigs allowed. The muzzle must point towards the ground). You will also need a belt!

 

6) 4 or 5 magazines or Speedloaders if you have them. You will make the range time flow by much quicker!!!

 

7) Appropriate Clothing to draw a concealed handgun from. Jacket, untucked shirt, etc... We strongly advise that you wear PANTS (not shorts) and closed toe shoes for your safety.

 

8) You are welcome to bring your own sack lunch. There are fast food restaurants near by as well.

 

9) Proper eye and ear protection

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: What kind of holster do I need?

 

Answer: We require something that securely holds the handgun, and IT MUST COVER THE TRIGGER GUARD! Uncle Mikes and Fobus Plastic/Kydex holsters are inexpensive and work great. No holsters that are shoulder rigs or cross draw. Check out the holsters page on our website for more info.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: What time should I arrive to the class?

 

Answer: Be on TIME! Check your confirmation letter for start and arrival times.

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: Why shouldn't I bring a .22 Target pistol?

 

Answer: NE CCW Training would prefer that people shoot practical guns that can be carried. If you choose to carry a pocket size .22 caliber pistol, such as a small revolver or Tomcat type pistol, that is acceptable to qualify with.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: What about lunch?

 

Answer: We will break for a short lunch. By the Lincoln classroom, there are fast food restaurants within 5-10 minutes of Thunder Alley. (You are certainly welcome to bring your own sack lunch if you like).

 


 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: When will I know if I passed the course, and when will I receive my certificate?

 

Answer: Same day of the class, at the end of the class.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question:  Do I have to bring my own gun?

 

Answer:   Yes, we prefer each person have their own gun for the class, but we usually put two people in separate groups in order to share the gun if needed.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question:  Do I have to qualify with the gun I am going to carry?

 

Answer:   No, the state of Nebraska does not have a requirement for permit holders to qualify with a specific handgun.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

 

Question:   I have zero experience with a handgun, can I take this class?

 

Answer:   No, we ask that you take a Basic Pistol class first to understand the basics of safely operating a pistol before taking the concealed carry class. Contact Roger Terrell if you need a basic pistol class first.  roger@neccwtraining.com **** NOTE, taking a Basic pistol class IS NOT REQUIRED, we just cannot have someone showing up to the CCW class Saturday morning with a gun that they bought Friday night and have no idea how it operates because they have never fired a handgun in their life.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: Can I use my laser or optical sight on my handgun for the class?

 

Answer: We prefer that you turn off and don't use laser or optical sights for the class.

*********************************************************************************************************************

Answer: No, sorry we are not able to offer any discounts.

 

*********************************************************************************************************************

 

Question: I have Military firearms training, why do I need to take a Nebraska Training class before getting a permit?

 

Answer: Some people have a high level of Military firearms training, and while they may be better versed in the handling of firearms that most others, this class has alot more to do with the Nebraska specific laws regarding firearms, and use of force, as well as all the rules and regulations of the Nebraska Concealed Handgun Permit Act. The majority of the information presented in this class is not covered in Military firearms training.
