Free HCP class!

Recommended Posts

I just signed my wife up for a FREE handgun carry class at the Bass Pro Shop in Sevierville. This is a great way to be your HCP at a reduced cost! Guys can go free as well if they bring a woman! You can get more info at: Shooting for Women Alliance Intro

I hope all women take advantage of this!

You get what you pay for!

Seriously?

I don't know about that. I'm all for anyone who steps up to take down some of the barriers that the state has erected between the average citizen and their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms. Hopefully it's a first step in a personal progression, but regardless of whether it represents a start, or it's the only class someone ever takes, I'll count it as a victory. You've got women coming out of that class who are one step closer to being able to legally defend themselves and their families than when they went in.

Kudos to this group for sponsoring this class. That's pretty cool in my book.

If you shop at BassPro, he might be getting what you pay for. :2cents:

Do they do this at any other Bass Pro Shops?

Looks like it will only be offered at the Sevierville location.

If you get your HCP training for free it leaves more money for additional training.

Good for BPS and SfWA.

The HCP class has to follow state criteria. Unless you get a complete douchebag for a teacher they should all be the same.

It's not Free!

$28 donation to get on the list to get a spot in class then a $15 range fee.

You don't have to donate 28 dollars.

The $28 donation guarantees you a spot, and the remaining seats will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis from the list of freebies. Yes, you have to pay a $15 range fee for the qualification portion, but even if you donate the $28 on top of that, at $43 total investment, it's still a HUGE bargain! I'm probably signing my wife up for the March class today.

While not a HUGE bargain it is pretty good. If it wasnt for the hour and 15 min drive each way Id have my wife go.

We have a local guy who only charges 55$ now for the class at a outdoor range.

But this is a nice offer by Bass Pro and I am glad to see it. Maybe others will follow their lead.

Is this actually a "HCP" class for certification? Bass Pro in the past has had handgun training classes for ladies but it wasn't for carry permit. They are calling this on the link you have given as a "concealed carry class". If this truely is for permit and not a concealed carry class that is great. Maybe someone who has had the class and received their permit can confirm that it is.

This is a HCP class. The class room work is done at Bass Pro but this isn't necessarily a Bass Pro class per say. I dont remember the name of the range where this is done at.

Bass Pro is a 2 hour drive for us. As far as that goes, Coal Creek Armory is over 1 1/2 hours from my house and it's the closest HCP class I've found right now. Might as well drive the extra half hour and use the saved money for ammo. Gives us an excuse to jump on over to Gatlinburg.

Has anyone already been through the HCP class at Bass Pro yet? Does the class and range time seem up to par?

My wife and I just completed the Bass Pro HCP class and it was great. It was conducted by a professional instructor, not by Bass Pro. Bass Pro just supplied the conference room for SFWA to use. :D

Got a haircut yesterday. I've gone to the same lady, who was a high school classmeat of mine, for most of my adult life. Discussion drifted to the fact that she had just taken the HCP @ Bass Pro Shop and then filed her paperwork with DOS. She was very pleased with the class.
