We will be having another Conceal and Carry gun class on Sunday Sep 24. Registration begins at 8:00 am  and the class starts at 8:30 am and is schedules to run until 4:30. The cost of the course is $100  per person. Payment can be made via PayPal using  https://www.paypal.me/thetribe?locale.x=en_US&country.x=US. Please use the friends and friends  function or add 3.5% for the fees. Please include the name of who is attending the class in the notes section.  You can bring the range fee with you the day of the class or you can include it in the PayPal payment. If you have an issue with PayPal or don’t have an account  you can mail payment to the address below. To reserve your seat, please make sure payment  is made prior to  Sep 17. There is a class enrollment minimum, so if there isn’t enough people paid by Sep 17, the class is subject to be cancelled. If the class is cancelled for any reason, a full refund will be given, less any fees from PayPal. You will need to bring a firearm of any caliber with a holster that can  be concealed. We recommend a belt holster on the outside of the pants and a jacket or  button down shirt to  conceal the gun.

Also, you will need range  protective gear as well. Eye protection and ear protection is required. 100 rounds of manufactured practice ammunition  should suffice.
