Class Fees

Civilian Arms Training Source was established to Provide Safe Firearms Training for All.

With this goal in mind, our fees are lower than most firearm training schools so it's easier to receive proper training for those who seek it.  Most classes are only $240.00 for the entire day (8am-5pm), with the exception of CCW and Night Shoot.  Discount vouchers are also available from our booth at local gun shows.


All classes require a $40 range fee & includes admin fees such as syllabus & training aids. This also helps cover the private training area: We collect all payments.

You will spend MUCH MORE for this type of training at other schools and not necessarily receive any more value for your training dollar.  In fact, many of our students typically report receiving even better training at Civilian Arms Training Source, for a fraction of the price paid previously.

We appreciate our military service people and enjoy having them in our classes. To show our gratitude for their service, we will gladly offer them 50% off full price as long as they supply their own ammo and range fee.  Just let us know you're military when you register.  THANK YOU and GOD BLESS!
