Handgun Courses

Please Read
In order to ensure the safety of our students and the general population of law abiding citizens, a current permit to carry a concealed weapon or a state-issued background check is required to attend all civilian live fire courses.

All previous Cripara students are invited back to any Cripara class that they’ve already attended, free of charge, as space is available.

If there are any questions about any of our courses, please email us at training@cripara.com. Thanks.

Alaska Concealed Handgun Permit (ACHP) ($149)
This 1 ½ day course satisfies the State of Alaska’s requirement for carrying a concealed handgun. Due to reciprocity, many other states also recognize Alaska’s concealed carry permit. This course covers Alaska Law, Handgun Safety, and Firearms familiarization. The $149 course fee includes the required fingerprinting and digital photo(s).  Ammunition requirement: 100 rounds.

Beyond the basics ($99)
This ½ day course piggy-backs on the Concealed Carry course curriculum and provides the student with more “real life” skill building.

Pistol 1.0 ($99)
This one day course is designed for the novice shooter. Here, the student will be introduced to fighting with the pistol. The focus of this class will be to maximize efficiency and discuss the “why” behind the pistol as a tool for self-defense. We will cover the presentation of the gun from the holster, the fundamentals of marksmanship, and reloads, among others. Class size is limited to 20 students. Ammo requirement: 150 rounds.

Pistol 2.0 ($99)
This one day course is designed for the shooter that has accomplished the basic class (or equivalent) and wishes to perfect the basics. Speed/Stress drills will be added to re-enforce the proper manipulation of the handgun. Movement and incapacitation drills will also be added to hone the shooter’s skills. Basic Pistol (or ACHP/Equivalent) is a prerequisite. Class size is limited to 20 students. Ammo requirement: 300 rounds.

Pistol 3.0 ($249)
This intense two-day course is not for the novice shooter. In the advanced course, we will cover shooting from behind cover, multiple target engagement, shooting on the move, shooting from unusual positions, and various other drills- all while under a little bit of (safe) stress. Basic and Intermediate Pistol (or equivalent) is a prerequisite. Class size is limited to 10 students. Ammo requirement: 500 rounds.

►Low Light Handgun ($99)
This ½ day course is designed to “shed some light” on the subject of firing a handgun in low light conditions. Most armed confrontations happen during hours of darkness, so it makes sense we train accordingly. Basic Pistol (or equivalent) is a prerequisite. Class size is limited to 10 students. Ammo requirement: 200 rounds.

Revolver 1.5 ($99)
The Basic Revolver course covers everything you’ll need to know to operate your “wheel gun” with confidence. We’ll cover reloads, shooting from behind cover, concealment draw, and a host of other topics in this one day course. Class size is limited to 20 students. Ammo requirement: 200 rounds.

Any of our courses can be modified to fit a particular group or organization’s needs. If you have at least 10 people willing to train, we can do a “closed course” training in the subjects you wish. For further information on closed/private courses please email training@cripara.com.

Thanks again! We look forward to training with you.
