Default Nevada CCW - Instructor Recommendations?

i have some free time, and the airlines have a $121 round trip sale from sjc to reno, so i figure ill fly up there, visit with some friends, and get my nevada ccw all on the same trip!

any recommendations for an instructor?

it would be ideal if i could do it without a rental car, but that may not be possible.

thanks,

mark

Reno = Washoe County Sheriff Department

Washo County Sheriff Department list of approved NV CCW trainers

In the past, several forum members have recommend Armed and Safe for NV CCW training in the Reno/Sparks/Carson City area.

Because the NV CCW training for initial applicants takes between 6-8 hours (class + range qualification), it typically take about 2 days for you to get everything done.
One day for CCW training and one day for application submission (typically done Mon-Fri 0900-1700 hrs).

Armed and Safe. You can get it done in one day but it will be a long day. And you will need a car. The class usually starts early AM at the range outside the city, finishes up in a classroom somewhere else (my class was at Scheels), then you drive to the Sheriff and apply (weekdays only IIRC). So a car is a must.

It will take 2 days to get your CCW in Washoe County, first day for class, second day to apply at the Washoe County SO. They only allow CCW applications from 7:30 am - 3:30 pm weekdays. Reno Guns and Range offers classes and they are near the airport, classroom and qualification are at their indoor range so no need to travel.

^^^ This. Take the Carson class. Turn around time from Carson is faster than Reno. Kelly and Allan are great people and run a good program. You can also get paperwork for UT / OR as well if wanted. http://www.armedandsafe.com/

Kelly/Allan http://www.armedandsafe.com/ have got it figured out pretty well. I did a Carson class which started at 4am and was all done by lunchtime. A small group of us headed down to the Sheriff's office to turn in paperwork right after and was on the way home an hour later. Weird schedule but worked out great.
