The CCH class with Irwin absolutely blew my expectations out of the water and I could not recommend it enough! Yes, an 8-hour class during the week/on the weekend sounds daunting, but the deep passion and extensive knowledge that Irwin brings is unsurmountable. The content is very engaging and you will undoubtfully walk out of those 8-hours feeling proud, informed, empowered, and eager to continue your education and training. Every single person, whether interested in actually carrying or not, would highly benefit from this class.
"I recently attended Sheriff Carmichael's 2-night/8-hour Concealed Carry Handgun training program in Huntersville. Mr. Carmichael's credentials are first-rate--30+ years in law enforcement--which was an important reason I chose the class. His course is a robust blend of hands-on, demonstrative, and classroom instruction. Our 11-student class was represented by a broad cross-section of the community, some with firearm familiarity, many without. Attendees were encouraged to ask questions, participate in training exercises, and examine options to de-escalate high-risk scenarios. Sheriff Carmichael emphasized safety, personal responsibility, and potential legal ramifications. There was an educational benefit to all. I highly recommend this program for anyone considering obtaining a CCH permit in North Carolina." -- Greg C......
