Kirk Reinschmidt approaches CCW and defensive handgun training from a different perspective. He is not a former member of the military nor does he come from a law enforcement background. Kirk teaches and expresses his views on the subject as a regular citizen.

In 1982 Kirk moved to a county in California where the county sheriff would issues CCW Permits to law abiding citizens. When Kirk purchased his first handgun, a Colt Cobra Revolver from a retired law enforcement officer, he was informed he could obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon for self- defense. Kirk did obtain a CCW Permit and soon realized he knew nothing about firing a handgun, self- defense tactics, or the laws pertaining to self-defense and the use of lethal force. Kirk began to seek out training in the use of firearms and information on the legal and moral issues in using lethal force He gained experience from friends and took courses at several firearms training institutes and courses to become a NRA Certified Instructor and an authorized or certified CCW and CFP instructor.

Kirk teaches his courses from the perspective of a private citizen. He is concerned with civil penalties and criminal penalties for the misuse of firearms and lethal force and how the misuse can affect a private citizen. The aftermath of a shooting, the legal and civil consequences for a person who uses a firearm for self-defense, defensive tactics, firearm operation and proper firearm selection for the individual student’s

What our students are saying about their training with Concealed Carry Nevada:


"Thank you for a very detailed, interesting and educational CCW training course. Being a retired WA police officer I still found the course to be very useful and informative on Nevada CCW laws for civilians and a great refresher and reminder on gun safety. I learned a lot of new important details too. So thank you for presenting a top notch class today."



Just wanted to thank you for the fine CCW class you taught Friday. I have had previous instructors teach me firearm skills and instruction, but none that compares to your knowledge and presentation of subject matter. You know what you're talking about and your teaching method was interesting and not boring!"
