from our clients

Took the CCL class with Edwin and was extremely impressed. Hands-on activities and not simply a drone of PowerPoint information. Extremely informative, and I would recommend not only taking any class with Edwin but continuing your handgun education with an instructor like Edwin. Thanks for a great experience.”

HQL Classes

Our HQL class is for those seeking to obtain a license to purchase a handgun in Maryland. This 4-hour class is led by a Certified Firearm Instructor and includes instruction on state firearm law, home firearm safety training, handgun mechanisms, and operation.  The class also includes onsite fingerprinting and documentation.  This class meets all the requirements by the State of Maryland to submit your application for your handgun qualification license.

Maryland law requires HQL training if you have not owned a regulated firearm before October 1, 2013.  The HQL law in MD also requires a fingerprint background check to purchase a handgun, which is provided and included in the price of your class.

Wear and Carry

Taught by a certified firearms instructor in a small-group setting for individual attention, our Wear and Carry classes provide the in-depth instruction needed to obtain your carry license in Maryland.  We also offer paperwork assistance and submission and onsite fingerprinting.
