Special Note From: DPS/NRA Certified Firearms Instructor Bob (De-Nay) Denis.

 After more than 1,800 Emails and Phone Calls I have decide to come out of Retirement Effect 02-12-2018.

I will Instruct “Classes On Demand” one on one.  You may invite one quest it’s your choice.  Call now Ph# 480-275-6995 to schedule.  Give me at least 72 hours notice. 

I would like to thank the more than 22,000 Students and 300 CCW Instructors that I have had the privilege of training since 2004.  Special thanks to the Suns, Cardinals and D-backs for their patronage as well.  Remember what I have always told you.  “When you know and you know that you know confidence overcomes fear”.  Stay safe!

The U.S. Constitution protects your right to own a firearm, but it cannot ensure that you have the skills and abilities to safely use one to protect yourself. CCW AZ School instructs five separate courses in the safety and correct use of firearms, all five give the opportunity for their students to walk away with a Arizona Concealed Carry Weapons Permit (CCW). Which allows them to carry a concealed weapon in 35 other states, 36 if you count Arizona. We know that not everyone has the same abilities when it comes to firearms, which is why our courses vary in skill level. Beginners to experienced shooters will be able to find a course that best fits their needs and can be beneficial to their growth as a marksman. We are not your run of the mill Firearms Instruction School .  Our Firearms Training School Instructs Pistol, Rifle & Shotgun “Specialized Firearms Instructional Courses”.  We go beyond your expectations.  We limit all shooting element “Regular Scheduled Classes” to 4 to 5 students and “Private Group Classes” to only 4 to 5 Students. We will not train 20 to 30 students per class, we consider large shooting element classes like this unsafe and not very beneficial to the students.  In large classes one would not be able to get the “Specialized Training” they require. Your Instructor Bob (De-Nay) Denis is a DPS/NRA Certified Firearms Instructor and Military Combat Veteran. 

When it comes to education, safety and practical experience with a firearm, you want to have the best instructors and the most thorough courses.

THE FUTURE BELONGS TO THOSE WHO PREPARE FOR IT!  Only careful and comprehensive training with a firearm can make the difference between a future that’s secure with a Concealed Weapon versus a future that’s uncertain.

Arizona now accepts Non-Residents of all States in the USA. People from other States who want to get the Arizona CCW (Concealed Carry Weapons Permit) to be able to Carry their Firearms Concealed in 28 States legally, should take #111 our 4 hour Arizona CCW Law & Self Defense Session (No Exam or Shooting element needed).  It’s conducted in a Classroom Training type setting.  This Class is for the person with experience with firearms, who does not have time to seat through several hours of additional firearms training.  Don’t know if you qualify for this Class?  Let me ask you the following question:  On a scale from one to ten (ten being the highest) how do you rate yourself on SAFETY and ACCURACY with a firearm?  If the answer is 7 or above you qualify for curriculum #111 . Yes, additional time needed when Instructor Bob (De-Nay) Denis assists you in the correct completion of all DPS documentation Finger Printing included at no additional cost. How convenient is that? 

Not experienced with firearms click here read about curriculum #202 or #404

First question you should ask yourself is:  What is my experience level with a firearm?  Second question: Which of the 5 Curriculum (top left of this page) and 5 class locations best meets my needs?  The choice is yours!  Please Note: In taking our CCW curriculum please remember that the time needed for finger printing & permit application completion during class (per DPS) does not count as class time.
