DC Concealed Carry Training in NoVa - Indeed! Your read that correctly. If you travel to DC, you'll need a DC Permit as DC does not honor any other state carry permits.

And anyone with a US address can now apply.

The Good News is you no longer have to provide a valid reason to carry in DC. In legal terms they've moved from a "may issue" to a "shall issue" jurisdiction in early October 2017. For more information read the SDT Virginia Guide to DC Carry,

Even Better News...

Upcoming firearm training in Alexandria VA - From Basic to Advanced, we have you covered. We have Basic Pistol Classes, Basic Rifle and Shotgun Classes, and our popular 4.5 hour VA Concealed Carry Training Class, that is not even in the same universe as the "online" carry training available here in Virginia.

And last fall we added our DC Concealed Carry Class.

Why attend an upcoming Firearm Training in Alexandria?

At SpecDive, we offer various courses and try to keep our classes small, to ensure your training is better in tune with your specific needs. And ask any firearm professional. They will tell you "train".

There are many ways to obtain these needed skills such as books, online videos, and even personal experience, but in-person training with an expert is the best way.

Who should attend an upcoming firearm training in Alexandria at SpecDive?

From housewives to CEO's and executives, and from college students to truck delivery drivers, and everyone in-between, as you might guess, training cannot be overemphasized. Just the same as in the military, law enforcement, and the security industry, professional firearm training cannot and must not, be overlooked.

Here at SpecDive, our professional firearm training ranges from basic pistol, rifle and shotgun safety training and firearm maintenance classes to highly-focused long distance rifle shooter training, real concealed carry training, and everything in between, including our very popular combat-pistol and combat-rifle training courses held at Echo Valley Training Center. And yes. That's our training you've likely heard about over at EVTC.

Come experience the difference at SpecDive.

Defensive Pistol 2-Day Training September 29-30

Two days of intensive pistol training designed to prepare you for real life events. Advanced Concealed Carry Training at Echo Valley Training Center.

This class will prepare you for real world confrontations and is ideal for anyone who has completed a Concealed Carry Class or our Basic Pistol Class and wishes to learn how to effectively deploy a firearm for the purpose of self defense.

The SpecDive Tactical 2-day defensive shooter course is for law enforcement officers, military personnel and private citizens who desire a complete understanding of the defensive handgun and achieve a skill level that surpasses 99% of those who carry a gun. It has profound implications for reducing injury or death in a armed confrontation.


Why Combat Training Is So Valuable

So you've gone to the range and have stood still and fired at a stationary target. That practice is valuable training for sure, but it lacks "real-time" elements. Like moving. In a real-time situation, say an intruder in your home, it's likely that the target will be moving, and it's also likely you will not be standing still. That's where combat training comes in.
