Once you have found an instructor, the next step is to take a firearms safety course. This course will teach you the basics of gun safety and handling, and it is required in order to obtain a CCW license in Missouri. After successfully completing the firearms safety course, you will then need to pass a background check and submit an application to your local sheriff's office.
If you are a Missouri resident, you will need to provide proof of residency when you submit your application. Once your application has been processed and approved, you will be issued a CCW permit.
Are concealed carry permits required in Missouri?
CCW permits are no longer required to carry a concealed weapon in Missouri. But I would recommend taking the class anyway. It is so important to understand the legal ramifications of carrying a firearm.
You especially need to know what would happen if you ever have to use your weapon in self defense. So just because a CCW license is not required does not mean you can skip the training.
What do concealed carry classes consist of?
In most cases, concealed carry classes consist of a few hours of classroom instruction on firearms safety and laws governing the use of deadly force. This is usually followed by a live fire exercise on a shooting range.
Upon completion of the class, students should be able to demonstrate basic shooting proficiency and a working knowledge of firearms safety rules. Students will also receive a certificate of completion, which is required to apply for a concealed carry permit.
Concealed carry classes typically cost between $50 and $200, depending on the instructor and location. Some instructors may offer discounts for active or retired military personnel.
Are CCW classes hard?
This varies depending on the individual and their level of experience with firearms. For someone who has never handled a gun before, the class may be challenging. However, for someone who is already familiar with guns, the class should not be too difficult.
Most instructors are very empathetic with beginners. They will go out of their way to train you how to safely handle a firearm. My instructor spent lots of time with each person individually on the range until everyone felt comfortable.
