Veterans

We offer two classes specifically designed for active duty military personnel stationed in New Mexico or veterans who have been out of the military for less than 20 years.

One class covers the legal aspects of concealed carry in New Mexico and what you need to know to apply for your concealed carry license. This class will also provide information on obtaining your New Mexico concealed carry license.

The second class is an introduction to defensive handgun shooting for those with limited defensive handgun training/shooting experience.

Concealed Carry Renewal

The New Mexico Concealed Handgun Carry license is a four-year license. The Renewal Class meets the training requirement for renewal of that license.

The class is four hours long and includes a student manual, review of firearms safety, the legal aspects of concealed carry including a review of the use of deadly force, and ways to avoid conflict.  It also includes a variety of drills similar to the ones used for the basic concealed carry class as well as the required qualification course.

Students who took their initial and/or refresher Concealed Carry Classes from another instructor are welcome to take the Renewal Class offered by Riclin Firearms Training, LLC.

Concealed Carry Refresher

While the New Mexico Concealed Handgun Carry License is valid for four years, the license holder must take a Refresher Class to re-qualify two years after their license in issued. The Refresher Class is required two years after you receive your license and requires that you re-qualify with the handguns on your license. This two hour class includes a review of basic firearms safety and the legal aspects of deadly force.

A variety of shooting drills, similar to the ones used for the basic concealed carry class, are completed prior to the re-qualification shooting.

Concealed Carry (New Mexico)

This class meets the training requirement of the New Mexico Concealed Handgun Carry Act. Completion of this class enables the student to apply for a New Mexico Concealed Handgun Carry License. Topics approved by the New Mexico Department of Public Safety, include:

  • Knowledge of and safe handling of single and double action revolvers and semiautomatic handguns
  • Safe storage of handguns and child safety
  • Safe handgun shooting fundamentals
  • Live shooting of a handgun on a firing range (includes qualification firing)
  • Identification of ways to develop and maintain handgun shooting skills
  • Federal, state and local criminal and civil laws pertaining to the purchase, ownership, transportation, use and possession of handguns
  • Techniques for avoiding a criminal attack and how to control a violent confrontation
  • Techniques for nonviolent dispute resolution

Additional topics include ways to conceal your handgun, sources for additional information and an interesting discussion of the OODA loop concept of reaction time. Instruction is individualized to each participant as much as possible while keeping within the course guidelines.

Participants will receive a copy of the Guide to the Basics of Personal Protection in the Home produced by the National Rifle Association as well as a student manual.

The shooting drills are designed to expose the student to a variety of techniques, situations and scenarios to develop their shooting skills. Beginning with basic accuracy drills, we evolve into dynamic movement techniques and shooting on the move. Once the student has completed the shooting drills they shoot the qualification course.

Qualification with both the semi-auto and the revolver are included as part of the class. Students are expected to provide their own handguns and ammunition. Loaner handguns are available if a student has not yet purchased their handgun. Students who do not own a handgun are encouraged to NOT purchase a handgun until after they complete the class. During the class they will have the opportunity to handle and shoot several different handguns. This is an excellent opportunity to find a handgun that meets their particular needs.

If you would like to take the class with a friend or family member, a discount is available for those willing to share the book and other materials.
