Staff member
This thread will be used to list all ccw instructors in Missouri. If you would like to help, please post the name, address, phone number, and any other information of a ccw instructor in Missouri and I will list keep them listed in this first post alphabetically.

Florrisant MO

Richard L. Ellwanger
Lead Instructor
St. Louis MO CCW Instructor

SAFTI has been teaching with its team of Certified Instructors
since 1994.

Please call me, Gil Pyles 314.346.8629 for any and all questions about CCW in Missouri.

It took us 13 years to get the CCW law passed in MO, and I am happy to help people
understand and exercise their rights to self defense.

Please call me or email anytime [email protected]

Its is very important to understand Missouri Law RSMO 563 Justifiable Use of Deadly Force,
so please take your time to find a knowledgeable instructor.

Our class is unique in the fact that you are taught by a Missouri Lawyer on Justifiable Use of Deadly
Force, no other class does that in the unique way that we do.

Thanks-and be safe out there.

I am currently teaching classes monthly in the S/W area of Missouri. You can find my web-site at Link Removed . Feel free to browse my site for further information.

Full time handgun training

We do a one-day CCW class three or four times a week at our own private range. Our class also is good for a non-resident Florida or Utah license. You are our guest for the day and we serve lunch and supply free soft drinks while we meet the MO requirements for concealed carry and then show students how much other training is out there. We are building a new outdoor range for advanced defensive handgun training this summer.
St. Louis area CCW classes, Visa/Mastercard, 2 classes per week meet license requirements for a Missouri, Utah or Florida CCW

We have also been publishing books for the gun culture since 1996 at

I've taken Tim's class, and couldn't me more pleased to add him to this list.
He takes what can be a topic that's "as dry as stereo instructions" and turns it
into something you can enjoy, remember and "your butt can endure."

This class will qualify you for your Missouri permit and several out-of-state permits as well. Duaine is NRA certified in both basic pistol and personal protection. He is also licensed as an International Instructor by the State of Utah. Duaine's class is taught strictly to Missouri State standards.

This guy is awesome! I took my CCW with this gentleman and loved every minute of it! I highly recommend Duane's course. Most of the men at my church have taken his course and the pastor's and assistant pastor's wife and a widow lady from the church have signed up to take his class as well!

CCW Instruction in SE Missouri

Concealed Advantage


The laws explained to you in a simple format that will provide you with the tools that you’re going to need should you face a legal situation. You’re also going to get the skills that are needed and required should you find yourself in an armed encounter. You’re going to be introduced to retention and disarming techniques that could save your life.

And you’re going to get all of this from an instructor with over a decade of law enforcement experience. From someone who has engaged in armed encounters and testified in the courtroom and then gone on to train and educate hundreds of people in the mechanics of an armed encounter and the legal process that takes place afterwards. You’re going to get to hear about his experiences and gain the benefits from them.

My name is David Stark and I have been offering affordable CCW classes since 2003. Cost for a one day / 8 - hour class is $40.00 plus ammo. There is no charge for Military Veterans. I hold these classes once a month, but have in the past held them more frequently when needed. I am located near Lake of the Ozarks.

I have been a Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor since 2000, being a graduate of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Academy's 35th Firearms Instructor School. My classes are held in an informal environment, with no 'macho, swaggering, been there - done that' attitude. Women and beginner friendly.

For details, please contact me at [email protected], or call 573-552-1784. I will be glad to answer any questions you may have. Thank you.

CCW and other gun courses in MO

My husband and I discovered by accident when I attended an intro class at Bullseyes which I wasn't satisfied. This outfit has a very personalized sort of teaching -- almost one-on-one. The company is owned by father and sons and is located on a 240 acre property. My husband and I am very pleased we found them and learned from them. Their fee is very competitive too.
