T4Tactics teaches the Concealed Carry Course in Virginia and other selected states. They also teach the Multi-State Concealed Carry Permit Course.
Don’t be fooled by taking an on-line firearm safety course for your Virginia Concealed Carry Permit. Many counties in VA (and other states) do not recognize this as a valid form of training. You’ll be wasting your money.
Also be very cautious of “Boothroy” that teaches concealed permit courses in his shed behind his home. There are many out there that teach concealed permit courses and are “rubber stamping” certificates. Basically, you give him money and he’ll provide you a certificate. Even if you are an expert gun handler and just need the certificate for your concealed carry permit, heaven forbid you shoot someone or have an accident. The courts are going to want to see “Boothroys” lesson plan. You’ll need it to be tight and dialed in.
