    Oklahoma CC course requirements

    Forgive this Newbie for his dumb questions.
    I expect to take the Oklahoma required course for concealed carry.
    Can anyone with experience tell me just how difficult this will be?
    I have certain physical limitations (handicaps), but really need and want to be able to protect myself with a concealed weapom.
    Help please!

    Here is the link to the requirements:

    Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation - Concealed Weapons Licensing

    ...and hopefully that can answer some of your questions. But, being unsure what you mean concerning "physical limitations"...I would contact a couple of instructors for a clearer reading before spending the dollars. I'm sure they would be more than willing to answer your questions.

    Like Bandit383 said, without knowing your physical limitations it's hard to say if you would have any trouble with the course. Speaking from my own experience, if you can safely handle a firearm (load, unload, fire etc...) then you shouldn't have any problems. I don't really consider it a disability or handicap, but I was born with only two fingers on each hand. I do things a little differently than most folks, so when my time with the instructor came to do the range portion of the class, I had to spend a little more time with him than most everyone else in the class. I shot a semi auto for the class and had no problems demonstrating that I could safely handle my weapon. Hope that helps a little, if you have any more specific questions feel free to ask away.

    OK's course is not difficult. One thing to know about OK. If you train with a semi auto you will be certified for semi auto/revolver/derringer, however if you train with a revolver you will not receive the semi auto endorsement on your training certificate and will not be allowed to carry a semi auto until proof of competence has been established.

    Any applicant who successfully trains and qualifies
    himself or herself with a semiautomatic pistol may be approved by the
    firearms instructor on the training certificate for a semiautomatic pistol,
    a revolver and a derringer upon request of the applicant. Any person
    who qualifies on a derringer or revolver shall not be eligible for a
    semiautomatic rating until the person has demonstrated competence
    and qualifications on a semiautomatic pistol.

    Me again.
    My problem is that I am pretty much wheelchair bound. Cannot stand for long and really would need to shoot sitting in my power chair and of course, the range / classroom would need to be barrier free - i.e. wheel chair accessible.

    I would suggest talking with Will Andrews, at H&H gunrange (405) 947-3888. I don't know if he's doing the courses, but he'll give you a recommendation, if not. H&H is probably the most accessible/convenient in the OKC metro area.

    Lot's of things and folks that have become progressively less impressive at H&H over the years, but Will is a great guy to work with.

    Facilities will vary, depending on where your at, but if it is a public facility it has to be wheel chair accessible. If in the OKC area, H&H is good as Rob said. I'm sure there are indoor ranges in the Tulsa area as well. Smaller communities may do their shooting portion of the class outdoors (Altus did it at an outdoor range). If you are a military vet (within 20 yrs of discharge), you are not required to do the shooting portion, a copy of your DD214 showing small arms qualification will suffice.

    Will still does the concealed carry. If they cant acommodate you, let me know. I know a guy who can instruct you in your home, and then you can go to an accessible range with him for your proficiency requirement.
