On November 29th, 2006, Patrick Smith (Gun-Safe Academy) became the first person certified to teach the Nebraska Concealed Handgun Permit course (CCW).

To enroll in the Nebraska CCW (NRA Personal Protection at Home) class you can mail the form and check for $140 to the address listed above. This fee is for training only. The CCW permit application to the State of Nebraska is $100 for five years.  


1)     A pistol, semi-automatic with at least two-6 round magazines, or a double action revolver that holds at least 5 rounds- 2 speed loaders are encouraged, any caliber.

2)     A minimum of 100 rounds of ammunition.
3)     A strong side hip holster and a belt. (no cross draw or shoulder holsters)

What this means is that you must have a holster than holds the gun on your hip on the side of your dominant (shooting) hand.  If you shoot left handed, it must hold the gun on your left hip.  If you shoot right handed, it must hold the gun on your right hip.

4)     A signed liability waiver (provided at classroom). 
5)     A Nebraska State Photo ID, or driver's license, or Military ID.

The gun you qualify with does NOT have to be the gun you carry. If you arrive at the range with a gun that does not meet the above requirement you will NOT be allowed to shoot. If your gun malfunctions repeatedly, or is deemed un-safe by the instructor, you will not be allowed to shoot. The staff will allow the student to return to the next regular range day for one make up shoot.

All participants will complete all requirements for the NRA Personal Protection in the Home Course AND the Nebraska CCW requirements. This makes the class an excellent value. The training allows the student to build on the NRA training with the Nine hour level one, Personal Protection Outside the Home (CCW), and the 5 hour level two Personal Protection Outside the Home classes.  

Both members of  Gun-Safe Academy's teaching staff are NRA certified firearms instructors and certified by the State Of Nebraska to teach the CCW course.  Both instructors are commissioned notaries that will notarize your State Patrol application for FREE, and both are licensed nurses equipped with gun shot trauma kits at each range fire exercise, so no one is better prepared for an emergency.

We are holding regular classes one weekend each month. The class is taught at in La Vista, and the range qualification will be held on private land at 2312 LaPlatte Rd. in Bellevue. NO AMMO IN CLASS!! You may not bring the firearm or ammo to the classroom.  Classes are filled first paid first served. All students will receive a phone call or e-mail to confirm class dates after enrollment form and payment are processed.  The course fee must be paid two weeks in advance if paying by check.  Cash payments may also be accepted if prior arrangements are made. We DO NOT accept credit cards.
