EXCEL Firearms Training Center CCW Course

Please note:  Our new policy requires that you must call our Range Chief, Marty Hargraves to arrange a time for required range training and qualification for the AZ CCW  handgun qualification requirement held on our Handgun Safety Qualification Range BEFORE you can attend the CCW Classroom requirement.  (see contact info below).  For the qualification portion, you must bring 20 rounds of Hollow Point or Soft Point ammunition  simulating personal protection defensive fire at a picture target of a criminal displaying a deadly weapon.  No other ammunition will be allowed for qualification (NO BALL AMMUNITION for the qualififcation portion)

If you dislike our policy of training for personal protection in the qualification portion, please choose another AZ DPS Approved Organization from AZ DPS website www.azdps.gov/Services/Concealed_Weapons/Training/?s=1

AZ DPS minimum requirement is 10 shots at a TQ-15 silhouette target. EXCEL Firearms Training Center goes above the bare minimums with permission by AZ DPS to use picture targets with 20 rounds fired.  Research shows that most personal protection shootings, the criminal can be seen similar to a picture target.

Marty's contact info:  (local cell #) 520-678-0323 
(Please mention that you need to be range qualified for the CCW Course)
Please do NOT wait until the week of the class to decide to take the course. If we do not have 6 registered/paid students by Tuesday, the week of the classroom portion held on a Saturday, we will cancel the Course. Classroom dates are:
