Safety and Concealed Carry Classes
LMGC provides Liberty students, faculty, staff, and family members thereof the opportunity to learn and practice safe firearm handling through a sequence of classes directed toward concealed carry. Each course is two hours in length, and designed to progressively develop your gun safety and concealed carry knowledge and skills. Classes must be taken in order, with proof of attendance at the prior class being required. All classes will be held at LMGC and begin promptly at the designated time.
General Firearms Safety
This course is an introduction to firearms safety, a perfect opportunity for new users to learn how to safely operate their firearms. It will also allow a Virginia resident over the age of 21 to apply for their concealed-carry permit once it is completed. It can be useful for getting your Liberty University concealed carry permit, but is not required. We will provide a firearm, eye-and-ear protection, and everything else needed to complete this course. If you have your own firearm that you would prefer to use, feel free to bring it along…but please leave it locked in your car until the end of the course (no firearms allowed in the class). Thanks to Liberty senior management, this course if offered free of charge!
- Attire MUST include a crew neck shirt and CLOSE TOED shoes.

Prerequisite: The General Firearms Safety course is a pre-requisite for this course. NOTE: Proof of prior attendance at either the LUPD or LMGC Safety Course meets the pre-requisite requirement.
This course focuses on the best practices and practical considerations for people while carrying a firearm concealed. We will have some inert guns, as well as holsters, to try out during the class.

You should bring a belt as well as a light jacket, sweater, or other outerwear to simulate some of the concealed carry options you will be shown. You should NOT bring any firearms to this class. There is a $15 fee due at registration for this course.
