Adiga Armory instructors are seasoned concealed carry experts, NRA-certified firearms instructors and military veterans. Our course curricula has been developed and refined through many years of experience in the shooting industry. Therefore, you can rest assured that you are receiving the best training available.
Colorado is a “shall issue” state, meaning that as long as you are not disqualified for current or prior unlawful behavior, you “shall” be issued a permit. One of the requirements for obtaining a CO concealed carry permit is attending a firearms training course in person [virtual or web-based courses are not valid]. The state only issues permits to CO residents who must submit their application through the county sheriff’s office of their county of residence.
New Colorado residents and out-of-state transplants have a 90-day grace period [CRS 18-12-213 (1-A-II)] in which the state will honor their old, out-of-state permit. This coincides with the statutory requirement that the sheriff has 90-days to issue you a CO permit or provide a legitimate reason for denial. The 90-day grace period begins on the date of issue of your new CO state driver license or state ID.
Live-fire is not required in Colorado, nor is there any kind of test you have to pass. The main requirements are that the concealed carry course is taught by a “certified firearms instructor” [such as Adiga Armory instructors], that it is completed no more than 10-years before applying for the permit, and that it be conducted in person.

NO SHOOTING TEST REQUIRED:
We do not do a shooting test in our Colorado CFP courses for the following reasons:

- It would nearly double the price of your course without adding any real training value
