The course was informative, helpful and well paced. Being a novice I wanted a class that covered why it’s important to have a CCW in a state that doesn’t require it in the first place. This class does that. Tim Forshey, the presenter, gave professional and insightful information that made sense and provided resources to help understand the responsibility that goes with gun ownership and use.

Lea and Bret in the office are friendly, courteous and very helpful. The entire process seems daunting but AZ CCW ONLINE made it seamless and extremely easy. I will be utilizing their services for more firearm education in the future. My experience was exceptional and I highly recommend them if you are considering any firearm training.

Kent Jacobs
I received my CCW permit in about 3.5 weeks after completing the course at AZ CCW Online. The course is an excellent dive into AZ criminal procedure and criminal law. Attorney/Firearms instructor Tim Forshey provides engaging and relevant guidance on the law and on individual rights and responsibilities. Once completed, the team provides the CCW application packet with clear instructions. Highly recommend.
Sheena Lemmons
This class was great! I had been going too long without my CCW and I couldn’t have picked a better course. Gun education is extremely important, especially in the world we live in now. This course explained in detail and real time scenarios which made the course memorable and easy to engage. Everything was made extremely easy to follow and great and clear direction by Bret and Lea at the Scottsdale office. 10/10 would recommend to any other individual looking to get their CCW.
Jose Diaz
I have mentioned to many of my friends already, this was the best customer service experience I have ever had! Brett and Lea are consummate professionals. After going through the dynamic training, my recommendation is that every person in America should take the course whether they have interest in a conceal carry permit or not. It is that strong. Thanks to everyone at AZ CCW for the best of experiences.

I really enjoyed the CCW class. Very informative and stream lines.I would highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested in a CCW and someone who carry’s without one. I learned a lot from the perspective of a gun law attorney. From sign up to the fingerprints was an easy process. They give you everything you need to submit the paperwork to DPS.

I can’t say enough good things about AZ CCW Online. From the first contact with AZ CCW Online to the last, everyone was extremely courteous and professional. The class content was very relevant and gives the student valuable knowledge of Arizona specific laws. While I previously took advantage of Constitutional Carry while traveling in Arizona, I feel much more confident carrying concealed after taking this course. I also found the face to face component worthwhile and informative. The knowledgeable instructor was able to answer my follow up questions from the video portion of the class and provide some additional guidance. I have already recommended this course to several of my friends who thus far have had the same experience.

Matt Rohrer

Absolutely great experience. Tim Forshey the instructor was intelligent, funny, entertaining, informative, and drove home so many critical issues relevant to concealed carry. Lea and Bret were immediately accessible, helpful, and made the entire experience A+. I HIGHLY recommend this course and this company. And – I never write reviews, so doing so here means I was very, very impressed.

Laura O'Malley

I highly recommend AZ CCW Online! Tim Forshey’s online course videos are excellent and Lea and Bret are totally professional and helpful every step of the way. Along with the Arizona specific topics in the video course there is a wealth of information that any gun owner, in any state should know and understand. Much thanks to AZ CCW Online!!

James Allen

Great course. Really enjoyed the ability to do it online and in the comfort of my home. Tim Forshey is very knowledgeable and has a lot of experience from both the legal and enforcement perspectives. I enjoyed his straight forward approach. A lot of information related to AZ Statutes associated with lethal force as well as mindset, approach and attitude toward carrying in public. I’ve practiced Martial Arts for over 25 years and there are a lot of similarities in philosophies, especially in terms of the advantages and strategies behind the concept of “concealment”. I recommend this course to anyone pursuing the ability to CC. Be a Sheepdog.

Bret and Lea at the Scottsdale location were fantastic! Precision, ease of process and professionalism aptly describes my experience at AZ CCW Online. The content of the course was on point. The process of meeting with Bret and Lea to complete the paperwork and obtain finger prints was super easy and very well coordinated. I appreciate the work they have done to develop this program and the seamless system of preparing the application package that I ultimately submitted to AZ DPS. Highly recommend this course and AZ CCW Online!


The value of this class far exceeds the cost. Being online makes this convenient as it can be. No time constriction on watching the videos. I replayed the videos numerous times with the ability to stop at any point and rejoin. The information will serve me for years to come. Before taking this course I did not know what I did not know. I took six (6 ) pages of notes; not because I had to to pass but because of the amount of valuable information I need to sink into my thinking about CCW. If you are serious about CCW you, your family and your empire need this information. Compared to the consequences that can come about from CCW, this is, mere pennies. Don’t jump in the water without knowing how to swim or knowing the depth. Even though my wife is not keen on CCW I am encouraging her to at least take this class. Anyone in favor of guns or CCW will find AZ CCW Online well worth the time and effort. Also kudos to the AZ CCW Online Team. Helpful beyond expectations: prior, throughout and ongoing.


This was the best online course I have ever taken! Tim, the instructor, was completely fantastic. His credentials are amazing and he did a fabulous job with all the sections. I love the fact that even after completing the course you can go back and watch sections to get refreshed or if you missed something. Once the online course was completed I met with Lea and Bret in the Tucson office to finalize my packet to mail in. They were the kindest people to work with and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who carries or is thinking of it. There is a wealth of information in this course and I’m sure you will definitely learn something from it.

It should come as no surprise that there are a lot (way too many by a factor of ten, perhaps?) of attorneys out there, many of whom would be delighted to handle your case, should the unfortunate need ever arise. What factors should you consider when deciding which shark to feed? There is a litany of qualifications to examine (such as reputation, length of practice, etc.) and those items are available from multiple other sources. If your problem involves your use or threatened use of a firearm, however, there are a few specialized concerns you might be wise to consider as well.

Most criminal defense attorneys will be (hopefully) very capable and seasoned, but, unfortunately, many of them are not particularly aware of self-defense justification concepts. It is simply an issue that they have dealt with infrequently. Even fewer of these attorneys are actual devoted shooters, and an even more limited sub-set are students of shooting—actively taking/teaching classes related to shooting, reloading, studying ballistics, competing in matches, etc. There are several reasons that this last sub-group may be the one from which you wish to choose a lawyer.

As an example, I recently handled a case for a client who was intoxicated and, late at night, lamenting the recent death of his girlfriend, discharged four rounds “into the desert.” While I cannot attest to the usefulness of this activity as a method to reduce grief, it certainly increases your likelihood of arrest—especially if one of the rounds goes through the closed window of your neighbor’s occupied home. Thankfully, no one was injured.

Despite that lucky break, my client was charged with endangerment, one of the felonies in the least severe category in Arizona (as, frankly, he should have been) as well as discharging a firearm at an occupied structure—one of the most severe. There are approximately ten years of prison time separating the two charges.

When I visited the scene of the shooting, I was able to determine, from the police report’s diagram showing the location of the spent brass at the scene on the night in question, the relative direction that the four rounds were likely fired. That general direction was not anywhere near in line with the neighbor’s property—just as my client claimed.

A close inspection of the scene downrange from where he claimed revealed a large rock with a clear bullet strike on its angled face. Upon return to the scene with our properly credentialed firearms expert, through the use of trajectory studies (utilizing lasers and laser rangefinders coupled with ballistic charts), photographs of the scene, google earth photos showing distances and angles between the various buildings and crime scene photos showing the oddly shaped hole in the neighbor’s window, we were able to present a scientific explanation for the fact that only one of the four fired rounds struck the neighbor’s house—it was a ricochet.

This acted to remove mens rea from the act of shooting at the house, thereby rendering it accidental rather than an intentional act. Our expert’s report prompted the state to drop the more serious of the charges, which would have required approximately a decade in prison.

Knowledge of, and access to, information particular to firearms, ammunition and ballistics helped to see that justice was done. My client did a stupid thing, which deserved punishment. My job was to make sure that punishment was appropriate–ten years in prison clearly was not.

Nice to know all of that “wasted time and money” (to quote my wife) comes in handy sometimes.
