Your pistol must be a fully functioning and well maintained semi-automatic or double action revolver. No single action revolvers are permitted. This is safety issue. If you need to borrow a pistol, for a small fee we can provide you with both a pistol and ammunition. When borrowing our pistol, you must use our ammunition.
As part of the required CWP Proficiency Course, SLED requires that you fire from both the ready position and from presentation (Ex. from a holster). For safety reasons, you must use a quality leather or Kydex holster specific to your pistol with a suitable and sturdy belt. Holsters must be Outside the Waistband (OWB). No Inside the Waistband (IWB), cross draw, small of the back, belly bands, shoulder holsters, or purses whether designed for conceal carry or not.
If you do not have a quality pistol specific OWB holster, you must first acquire one, or borrow one of our pistols, including using our ammunition as described above.
If you have any special needs, or physical, medical, mental, or other condition that might require accommodations or of which we need to be aware, please let us know in writing below. These things DO NOT preclude you from taking this course, but knowing about any issues can help us better meet your needs and help you get the most out of the course. Examples: diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, heart conditions, problems gripping (arthritis, missing or malformed digits, etc.), problems standing (require wheelchair/cane/walker, etc.), attention issues, prior traumatic experience with firearms or violence, hearing issues, etc.
