Patriot Training And Consulting Concealed Carry Training (CCW)

While our Veteran-owned, small business was officially formed in 2011, the owner conceptualized its framing more than ten years ago while serving on active duty in the U.S. Marine Corps. As a Marine Infantryman, and later as a Federal Law Enforcement Agent, the founder was first certified to teach tactical weapons training to military and law enforcement units in 1988. With a passion for both weapons employment and instructor billets, our founder decided to open the business which is commonly referred to as PatriotTAC. All of our instructors possess recent real-world experience in either military or law enforcement service, or both. While the business has grown some in the last few years, the owner still enjoys teaching regularly and remains committed to the very ethos which caused the formation of our business; great training and gear at the best prices possible.

Patriot Training and Consulting is based in Jacksonville, North Carolina; home to Marine Corps Base Camp LeJeune and Marine Corps Air Station New River, N.C. We schedule training events in numerous locations around Onslow County and Eastern North Carolina. PatriotTAC also employs mobile training teams who can  travel to your location to provide training and security consulting.

What our clients say about us:

In October, I was in a bind to obtain a certain type of holster for a close quarters pistol class. I had less than a week to get it to me in Albuquerque. I contacted many large and small retailers, yet PatriotTAC was the only company to respond to my calls and worked with me to get the ideal holster on-time, within a few days after my initial contact with them. The holster was great, but PatriotTAC's service was outstanding. All my questions were immediately answered. 

Thank you all so much.

I wanted to thank you for the instruction given in the concealed carry class several months ago. Since then, I have heard many people who took the class with other instructors talk about laws and what they 'perceive' to be the law-and to be honest its quite scary what some people believe (as an example, it's amazing how many cch permit holders believe head shots are the norm in a defensive situation). I also would like to know if you plan on teaching another defensive handgun or equivalent course in the future. I have attended a number of courses since attending your concealed carry class, including a handgun class with Larry Vickers and a tactical handgun class with another school in NC, and I will honestly admit that you have a better TEACHING style than any instructor I have met so far-even though I have only attended your cch course.

Thanks again,
John C.

"Patriot Training and consulting far exceeded my expectations in obtaining a CCH permit. Chris and his Team demonstrated an understanding of firearm safety and combined it with the legal aspect associated with possessing a CCH permit. I would challenge anyone in the area to match or beat what this team has going on. I contacted several instructors in the area only to find out that so many others were not in compliance with N.C. laws. Some 'instructors' didn't even require that I live-fire a handgun, which N.C. law does require. I wanted to get the most training for my money and Chris and his team provided just that. The Patriot team provided education and mentoring to both experienced and inexperienced persons, regardless of your level of training if you want to fully understand what it means to be a responsible CCH recipient, Choose Patriot Training and Consulting! You will not be disappointed. "

Thanks Chris! My wife and I really appreciated the Concealed Carry-Handgun (CCH) class. Since taking your course, we’ve had a number of conversations with friends who had taken a CCH class someplace else. The more people we talk to the more we realize just how much more we learned by taking your course! It’s become obvious that some people become CCH instructors simply because they know how to shoot. This is obviously not the case with you or your instructors. Your firsthand knowledge of the criminal justice system, the courts, and the legal issues surrounding concealed carry and the use of force is worth every penny of the tuition fee. We were amazed at how more you teach in addition to the required legal information.

I wanted to thank you for the excellent course this past Saturday. My wife and I both enjoyed and benefited from your CCH course. The eight hours seemed to fly by due to the amount of knowledge and skills you put out there. I have already been searching your classes for myself and the wife to attend next. I will most certainly be getting the word out there about PatriotTAC. You guys are a hidden gem and I wish I'd have heard of you guys sooner. Thank you for all the hard work and enthusiasm you put into our class. We look forward to being a part of your other courses in the near future.

I attended a Concealed Carry Handgun Class hosted by Patriot Training and Consulting and I could not believe how much I learned from them. As both a Veteran Marine with many deployments and an avid shooter of more than nineteen years, I didn't expect to learn much from a CCW class in Jacksonville or anywhere for that matter. To my surprise, from the start of the class in morning to the end in the afternoon, I learned a lot. From legal issues, to tactical use of a handgun, to defensive measures, Patriot Training really knows how to teach students at EVERY level; from beginner to seasoned professional. They're passionate about what they teach, they love teaching others, and it shows! Though I consider myself an expert with both handguns and rifles, Patriottac's instructor explained and demonstrated some unique methods of handgun manipulation, personal defense, and even tactical use of a handgun that I just hadn't learned anywhere else. Overall, I'm amazed by the incredible amount of knowledge, information, and experience these guys have. Their expertise taught me a lot. Most importantly, I learned there's still a great deal more to learn from guys who specialize in their line of work; no matter how much you know. I plan to attend their Defensive Handgun and their advanced concealed carry course, and I can't wait!
