About the MS Enhanced Carry Permit

During the 1990 session, the Mississippi Legislature passed legislation authorizing the Department of Public Safety to issue statewide firearm permits to individuals who make application and pay a fee. In the years to follow, the State of MS passed legislation allowing individuals to receive an Enhanced Carry Endorsement on their standard concealed carry permit. The enhanced carry endorsement removes most of the restrictions that a standard concealed carry firearms permit has. Having the restrictions removed allows the enhanced carry permit holder to carry a concealed pistol, revolver, or stun gun just about anywhere in the state.


Unfortunately, there are no clear standards of training regulated by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety. Brothers N Arms, LLC and Close Quarter Combat, LLC, recognized that problem immediately and responded by developing a standard of training that is second to none. Our mission is to provide superior quality firearms training, instruction, and education to law-abiding citizens. When you take an Enhanced Carry Class with us at our range in Hattiesburg, MS, you can rest assured that you will get the education and training that you need to feel confident when carrying a concealed pistol, revolver or stun gun.

Enhanced Carry Permit Class - Classroom Time

The enhanced carry class is an 8+ hour course. We can break the course up into two days, but our most common way is to conduct the course in one day. The enhanced carry classes consist of a classroom portion and a practical portion. Both parts of the enhanced carry class are conducted on our premier shooting range conveniently located on Hwy 49 in Hattiesburg, MS. Topics covered in class include safe handling of pistols and revolvers, shooting fundamentals and marksmanship, defensive shooting concepts, Mississippi laws specific to guns and use of defensive force, and more.


All of our classes are organized and/or taught by our lead firearms instructor, Joseph Green.  Joseph also coordinates with other NRA and MS Department of Public Safety certified instructors to ensure that students get the best training possible.  Joseph teaches enthusiastically and uses up to date teaching methods and technology to keep you engaged and attentive. Be sure to ask for Joseph Green by name if you want to get the training that the reviews are written about. 


Once you have successfully completed the enhanced carry class, you will have satisfied the requirements established by the Mississippi Department of Public Safety, and will be eligible for your enhanced carry endorsement. You will receive an official Mississippi Department of Public Safety approved certificate that you will then take to the nearest Mississippi Department of Public Safety substation that handles firearms permits. You do not need a Mississippi Firearms Permit prior to class. 

Enhanced Carry Permit Class - Range Time

The range portion of our enhanced carry class consists of a thorough review of safe gun handling procedures, shooting fundamentals, and other pertinent information covered in the classroom portion of the course. 


The live fire drills will be performed from various yardage. The drills performed are designed in a way to ensure that you use proper pistol shooting fundamentals and to demonstrate proficiency with your handgun. You will then shoot a qualification course of fire that will be scored on a point system. The majority of your shots will be from the standing two hand position, but you will also fire from the one-handed position using both the support and strong hand. 

Enhanced Carry Permit Class - What to do after class

Once you have completed the enhanced carry class, you will receive a "Certified Firearms Training Program" certificate from your instructor for the MS Department of Public Safety. You will take your certificate to one of the highway patrol locations that handle firearms permits and they will issue a new permit with "instructor certified" on it if you already have a concealed carry firearms permit. Otherwise, you will go through the entire concealed carry permit process and when you get your permit it will have the "Instructor Certified" printed on it. For your convenience, our certified instructors help you find not only the highway patrol office you will need to go to but also the dates and times they are open. Your Enhanced Carry endorsement does NOT EXPIRE, but the permit itself will need to be renewed every five years.
