As of 27 Jun, NC remains in Phase 2.  

With new cases on the rise, NC Governor elected to keep the state at Phase 2 until middle of July. The situatioin will be re-evaluated by the state in mid Jul to determine the next move.

Phase 2 does not allow social gatherings thus groups of over 10 are not allowed. 

For now, no more classes are being scheduled unitl I know more.

All students MUST do the qualification prior to the class in order to leave the 8hr class with the certificate of training in hand. 
If you do not qualify on the range prior to the 8hr class your certificate of training will be held until the range is conducted.  The certificate will be issued at the range upon completion.

When registering, enter the date and specific time you wish to meet at the range in the free text area at the bottom of the registration form.  Range qualification should be conducted prior to the class date.  If a date is not available prior to the class date, I might be able to find an alternate date during the week to conduct the qualification. 

Qualification will be conducted at the
Crosse Creek Rifle and Pistol Club located at:

3229 Blossom Road, Hope Mills NC 28348.

Special notes about the range:
1- Crosse Creek Rifle and Pistol Club is a private range for members and their guess.
2- If you arrive at the range and the gate is open, enter the range and make an immediate left and follow signs to range 3.
3- If you arrive at the range and the gate is closed, pull up to the gate then pull off to the left and park so not to block the gate.  Give me a call and I will move up to the gate and let you in.  DO NOT CLIMB OVER OR WIGGLE YOUR WAY THROUGH THE GATE.  Remember, the range is private property and monitored with over a dozen security camera's. It might take me a few minutes to come up to the gate if i am in the middle of qualifying someone.  If i don't answer, wait 5 minutes and call again.
4- The speed limit on the range is 5 mph.

5- When you arrive at Range 3, pull up to the wood fense and park.  Take the following actions depending on how you are transporting your firearm:

     - If your firearm is in a holster on your belt, simply secure the extra magazines and ammo and proceed to the covered benches behind the firing line. Do not take the firearm out of the holster,

     - If your firearm is in a bag, carry the bag to to the covered benches behind the firing line.  Do not take the firearm out or handle the firearm, just leave it secured in the bag.

     - If your firearm is not in a bag, holster or container.  Leave the firearm in the vehicle and move up to the covered benches.  We will wait until the range is hot before you remove the firearm from the vehicle and move it up to the range.

     ** When in doubt, leave it in the vehicle and come up and ask.
