Welcome to my Florida Concealed Weapons/Firearm License website! Here you’ll find most everything you need to know about obtaining your Florida CWFL. First, just a brief bit of information about me. My name is Dennis Yarbrough and I live in Lakeland, Florida. I've been active in shooting sports, primarily with handguns, since 1995. I am a National Rifle Association (NRA) Life Member, as well as a Gun Owners of America (GOA) Life Member. Through the NRA, I am a NRA Certified Range Safety Officer. In addition, I am NRA Certified in the following disciplines: Pistol, Rifle, Metallic Cartridge Reloading, and Personal Protection in the Home. All of my CWFL training is conducted at the Lakeland Rifle and Pistol Club, in Lakeland, Florida.
Important Disclaimers: I am not a self-defense trainer. My goal is to simply help you obtain your Florida CWFL as safely and quickly as possible. All of my firearms training is basic, but very comprehensive, with an emphasis on safety. If you currently do not have your CWFL and desire to obtain it, then I can help you out. In doing so, I will provide much more information and actual shooting time than you would get from the typical gun show concealed carry class. Also, please note that all of the information presented on this site is guaranteed to be accurate and current only at the moment it was written. As true with most everything, this information is subject to change. And finally, there are inherent risks associated with the possession and use of firearms. These risks include the possibility of serious physical injury or death, of yourself or others. Please do not take these risks lightly. However, if you always follow some very simple and basic rules, the chances of incurring the risks are greatly reduced.
Rules of Safe Firearms Handling …
- Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction.
- Always keep your finger off the trigger, until you are on target and ready to fire.
- Always keep all firearms unloaded, until being readied for use.
- Always be certain of your target and what lies beyond it.
And finally … Always treat and handle all firearms as if they are loaded and ready to fire, even when you are certain they are not!
