Concealed Carry Handgun Certification Class
Charles and Peggy Elrod, husband and wife team, instruct the NC Concealed Carry Certification Classes.
We use real examples when answering student's questions from people whom have had close deadly encounters with
an attempt or experience on themselves or their loved ones.
This enables us to relate the use of deadly force into real encounters.
We know that there are many conceal carry classes that do not provide this unique knowledge.
We believe that when you leave Firearms Training By Elrod class you should leave with a good working knowledge
of the laws governing the use of deadly force and the rules established by the state of North Carolina on carry
conceal as well as being tested on your firearms knowledge and marksmanship skills.

"This class was excellent. I was provided a comfortable
learning environment in a small class setting where myself as well as others could ask
questions and not feel out of place.
They were very thoughtful and I recommend this class to anyone from novice to expert."
Joshua T. Raney
"The training and instruction that I received from the Elrod's met
all of my expectations.
They offer up a relaxed, yet focused, learning environment...whether in the classroom or on the
Both Chuck and Peggy offered easy to understand materials and examples of what is required for
taking on the responsibility of carrying a concealed weapon.
I would recommend the Elrod's to anyone serious about learning handgun safety or training."
"This class was very informational. I think before citizens are
able to purchase a firearm they should be required to take this class. By being in this
class I was able to learn my rights as a firearm owning citizen.
The class was perfect, it included an instructional video and there was material available for
hands on learning. The instructors were very involved and really cared that you were able to
understand the materials covered in the classroom. The instructors used real life scenarios
that helped class retain material."
"This class is great for the understanding and confidence in using
a handgun. The instruction of the class helps you determine when and what you need to do
in case any situation arises.
As far as things to do better for the class, I would say keep everything the same.
All points were explained as needed and were given opportunity to ask and get questions
"I highly recommend this class to anyone who is interested in a
concealed weapons class. The firing range practice was AWSOME! I was shown some
bad habits that I was unaware I even had. I was receiving training from an EXPERT!
I was not expecting this, and it was AWSOME. Chuck was continually coaching me and
having me to remain positive, as I was nervous about the target practicing.
It became VERY obvious that BOTH instructors were very professional and have done this MANY
times. AWSOME Class and I just can't say enough about how great this was."
"The class is very informative. I recommend it to anyone who
plans to handle handguns. I am sure that my skill and safety have been greatly increased
by this experience.
Peggy and Charles will bend over backwards to make you feel comfortable and get as much from
this as possible."
"I found the Conceal Carry Handgun class as presented by
Chuck and Peggy to be an excellent introduction to the legal and practical aspects of
carrying a concealed firearm.
The instructors are very friendly and personable, and present the required material effectively
while also introducing their own useful personal experiences."
"I learned quite a bit of information about the rules of concealed
carry that I would not have known without taking this class."
"The class was a great small sized that really personalized the
training. It seems both Charles and Peggy are knowledgeable in the subjects they
"Class was very informative. Enjoyed the additional
information given from real life experience. Thank You."

knowledge and willingness to say 'I don't Know.'"
D. Alan Hahn
"Class was very informative, covering the areas that I previously
didn't know. Especially in the areas of NC Law and it's application to real life
...I did find the class environment very relaxing and informal which seemed to help learning the
material very easy... Thanks."
"The class was exactly as it was represented when I initially
called. There was no expectation by Charles and Peggy that I already knew aspects so
everything was covered. Thanks."

me the laws and rules."
"This class is a very good class. It help me learn a lot of
stuff, like safety. I feel good about this class."
