Some Common Questions About Our DC Carry Class

DE Concealed Carry Training March 3-4 at SpecDive Tactical in Alexandria VA. Some Common questions answered. 

Here are Some Common Questions About Our DC Carry Class om March 3-4.

Why Two Days?

A D.C. Concealed Carry Permit no longer requires “just cause to carry” and is (for the time being) a “shall-issue” jurisdiction, but it does require permit holders to complete at least 16 hours of firearms safety training and at least two hours of range training with a minimum of 50 shots successfully fired.

If I Have a Virginia or Maryland Concealed Carry Permit, Does That Transfer to D.C.? 

No. Even if you have a permit from any another state, you still have to submit an application to possess a gun in the District of Columbia and to conceal carry in public in D.C.

How Much Does it Cost?

The 2-day D.C. Concealed Carry Training at SpecDive Tactical is $325 plus range fees and ammunition. The other fees are the DC application fee is which is $75, plus another $35 if your fingerprints are not already on file.

What If I Applied Under the Old Carry Law and was Rejected Because I did not Demonstrate a “Good Cause to Carry”?

You have to reapply, but you will not have to pay the $75 fee again.
