LEOSA CCW Qualification

Online scheduling

Overview

Retired Law Enforcement – must have completed this qualification within the last 12 months in order to carry a concealed firearm. 

Details

Per the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act, officers must carry proof of competency with a firearm similar to the one they are carrying. We recommend officers qualify with all firearms that have different action types they intend to carry.  

 

Prerequisites

The LEOSA qualification is for retired law enforcement officers. Credentials will be requested at the time of qualification. 

Required Equipment

A non-collapsible holster in the manner they intend to carry, 3 magazines or Speed Loaders, hearing protection, eye protection, identifying documents.  

Frequently Asked Questions

What documents do i need to carry according to HR218 LEOSA ACT?

A retired law enforcement ID and proof of competency within the last 12 months. 

Can a I carry a different gun than I qualified with?

Per the wording in LEOSA you may carry any firearm that is similar to the one you qualified with. For example, if you qualified with a Glock, it is commonly accepted that you may carry any Glock with similar form, function and controls. However, by qualifying with a Glock you would not be allowed to carry a revolver because it is a different action type.

If you have any doubts about whether a firearm is similar enough to the firearm you qualified with, we recommend you qualify with it to be safe. 

Can you provide me with a laminated card instead of a qualification sheet?

LEOSA only requires that you carry proof of your qualification. At the time of shooting you will be provided with a copy of your qualification sheet. we will also scan our copy and email it to you in case it is lost or misplaced. If you would like to receive an ID card style qualification card, we do offer this service with a $25 dollar processing fee. We highly recommend taking advantage of the hard card.
