ATA Pistol I

This class meets the education requirement needed to obtain a Kentucky CCDW.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill concealed carry class. ATA Pistol I is a one-day crash course about defending yourself during a violent, close-range gunfight. We have stuffed as much information as we possibly can into this eight-hour course, and we are confident that you will have a hard time getting more for your money anywhere else. Pistol I features a great blend of classroom instruction and range time. Expect to fire 300+ rounds of pistol ammunition in dynamic, realistic drills. Great for novices and experienced shooters alike!

Rental Guns

Remember that we do currently have three rental pistols available for pistol classes. If you don’t own a suitable handgun, don’t wish to drop $100 on extra speedloaders or magazines, or you don’t own a pistol at all, then we have you covered. The guns are available on a first-come first-serve basis. If you need a rental gun, then let us know as soon as you plan to sign up.

The three rental guns we have are a Glock 19 (9mm), a Canik TP9V2 (9mm), and a H&K USP (.40). Each gun comes with a holster, double magazine pouch, and three magazines. As always, bringing the ammo is your responsibility. You can shoot any factory-loaded (not reloaded or remanufactured) ammo through our rental guns. The cost for the rental gun & gear is $30+sales tax added onto the cost of your class, due at the time you pay the deposit.


We look forward to training with you in February! As always, fee free to contact us with any questions you might have and head on over to the Training Schedule page to sign up today.
