Our goal is to provide quality training to those who wish to conveniently and easily want to obtain their permits.

We give you the gift of confidence, self-reliance and a sense of control that is often absent when a crisis strikes. C & C, INC. asks you to embrace the personal responsibility to be prepared and to get training in personal safety skills so that you can prevail during the first few moments of a crisis.  Conceal & Carry citizens overwhelmingly accept the responsibility that goes along with carrying a firearm.  We want to harness the power of the individual through education, training and to make our local families & communities stronger. You have to remember that the first responder on the street may not be the police or fire; it’s the guy who’s there when an incident occurs.  C & C, INC. will prepare you for those first few moments.
