The Oklahoma Handgun License Class covers training on Oklahoma Law, Deadly Force issues, Safety, Shooting Fundamentals, Handgun Operation, Ammunition, and a 50-round course of fire. It contains an abbreviated “basic” class for handguns with an emphasis on Safety. A 15-question test is given in which you must get 11 correct to receive your certificate. The certificate you receive by passing this class can then be submitted with your concealed carry license application to the Sheriff’s Office of the County in which you live.
All Outdoor Range classes will be held rain or shine, at the main clubhouse on the Zink Ranch. The live fire portion of the class will be done on the club outdoor pistol range. Dress appropriately for outside conditions on the day of the class.
Important Information you must read before attending class:
Handgun: The handgun cannot be greater than .45 caliber. The gun must be in good (safe) working condition. If you bring and shoot a revolver in the shooting exercise, you will only be licensed to carry a revolver. If you shoot a semi-automatic pistol in the shooting exercise, you can carry either one, revolver or semi-automatic pistol.
Ammunition: Bring fifty (50) rounds of factory ammunition for the caliber of gun you will be shooting. Make sure that the ammunition is suited for the gun you are bringing.
- NO RELOADED AMMO – COMMERCIAL OR OTHERWISE
- NO +P, ++P, +P+ or MAGNUM LOADS OF ANY KIND
Eye protection: It is the responsibility of the student to bring eye protection. “Eye protection must be designed specifically for shooting, or be of safety glass.”
Ear protection: It is the responsibility of the student to bring ear protection. “Ear (hearing) protection may be the standard shooting earmuffs, or the foam, rubber, or plastic plugs. Spent ammunition casings are not acceptable as hearing protection.”
Headgear: It is the responsibility of the student to bring a brimmed hat. A baseball or Golf type hat is fine, but any hat with a three inch brim will do. The brim of a hat may afford another layer of protection to the face from falling objects.
State ID: Driver’s License or State Identification Card
Regarding the Exam:
Students will take a fifteen (15) question multiple-choice Safety Examination. The examination will cover only firearms safety. The material will be well covered in the course.
Students must correctly answer eleven (11) of the fifteen (15) questions to pass the examination (70%). If they do not pass the examination they will be asked to leave before the examination is reviewed. Students failing the examination must re-enroll in another self-defense firearms course, they may not continue. (Per the Council on Law Enforcement Education and Training)
