Concealed Carry and Home Defense Class at PSC
This event scheduled for March 28, 2020 will be re-scheduled
Did you know that if you just discharge your weapon into the air to scare an individual, you can be charged with attempted murder? You can learn more about this, proper shooting techniques, and the mindset that you need to have to deal with a violent encounter and much more.
You want safety and security for your family, but as a responsibly armed American, you realize that means much more than just owning a gun. With that thought in mind, PSC member Jay Scopel, a certified USCCA Conceal Carry Instructor, will be conducting a Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals course at the club. Even if you are not considering applying for a CCW permit in your state, this is a comprehensive course for anyone considering owning, carrying and/or having a firearm in their possession for self-defense. This class is open to PSC members and the public, and again, is even for those who are not considering carrying a firearm, but are considering having one in their home for protection.
As many of you know, our club has a relationship with the USCCA and as a club member in good standing, you can receive a discount on your monthly USCCA membership. A USCCA Membership brings you industry-leading education, training & the trusted legal protection you may need to protect your family with confidence. Join over 300,000 gun owners who’ve used the U.S. Concealed Carry Association to transform themselves into a community of responsibly armed Americans. The USCCA is dedicated to building safer communities by providing lifesaving training and resources to those in need.
There will be a limit of 20 students. There is a fee for this class, and as you can see by the curriculum below, you must be available at least 8 hours that day - as there will be approximately 6 hours of class time and 2 hours range time. Time for lunch will be allotted, but you must bring your own.
Times: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

As of March 26, 2019, it is a federal felony offense to possess a bump stock. The Final Rule has no provision to grandfather or register devices already owned. Additionally, the grace period to surrender a bump stock to the ATF has passed, meaning your only option at this point would be to destroy all devices in your possession. Further, there is no provision for any compensation for the economic loss of a destroyed or surrendered bump stock.
The ATF has provided bump stock destruction instructions that will render the device incapable of being readily restored to its intended function. Failure to comply with this new rule is a federal felony, punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison and up to a $250,000 fine for each bump stock in your possession.
