On Target announces that its next HQL Training Classes with openings will be on April 7 & 8, 21 & 22 and 28 & 29 from 6 - 8 pm. There are no additional April dates available so, if you are interested, there are only 24 seats for the entire month and you need to act promptly to get on board.  Dates for May will be published as the April dates fill.

The second session will include up to 50 rounds of live fire on the range with your instructor. The course has been divided into two sessions to accommodate those who find it difficult to spend 4 hours after a day at work.

The cost of the Training Class is $99 payable at the time of reservation. If you have a handgun and wish to use it for live fire you may bring it with you along with your own ammo. If you do not have access to a handgun you may use, without charge, a range gun from On Target, however that will require that you purchase ammo at the store. Only 8 students will be allowed in a class. Upon completion (there is no “test”) you will have completed Step 1 of the licensing process. Your Completion Certificate and your receipt for the class will entitle you to a discount of $50 on any gun purchase. This discount is not transferable and must be used within 90 days.

In addition to the Training Class, in the second session we will be offering LiveScan finger-printing for just $20. Additional fees of $34.50 will be collected for the required Federal and State Criminal Records checks required by the law as Step 2. The fingerprints, record check requests and fees will be submitted electronically by the fingerprint technician within 24 hours.

This service will also be available to persons exempt from the Training Class.

The HQL Application must also be submitted electronically. This must be done within 3 days of the fingerprint submission. On Target has available three computers with capability to scan any documents that need to be submitted. The Application Fee charged by the State is $50 and must be paid by either MasterCard or VISA credit or debit cards as part of the submission. There will be people available to assist you with the Application process if you encounter any problems.

Members of the Training Class will receive priority in fingerprinting and application submission.

Additional classes will be scheduled on Monday and Tuesday evenings as demand requires.
