|Florida Concealed Weapons License Course
In the State of Florida, the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services "shall issue" a license to carry concealed weapons to citizens that meet a number of criteria as defined in Florida Statute 790.006. One of those critera, FL Statute 760.006 (h), requires demonstration of competency with a firearm.

Urgent message from the S2 Institute:
As many of you are aware there is a nationwide shortage of ammunition. The S2 Institute has always prided itself on providing quality affordable training for all our students. In the very near future we will be forced to add a surcharge for ammunition to all our firearms classes. As the cost of ammunition climbs and the availability falls we will be forced to make this adjustment. The amount of the surcharge will depend on the market availability of ammunition. If students wish to provide their own ammunition for re-qualification and qualification we would encourage that. If you provide your own ammunition a cost adjustment will be made to the course cost to compensate for that. In addition we will not be able to accept students at re-qualification who have not pre-registered.
We hope the issues causing this will be resolved in the near future.
For any questions please call the school at 727-461-0066.
