  • OK SDA Handgun License

    OK SDA Handgun License

    The OK SDA Handgun License Course is a training and certification course developed by the Council for Law Enforcement Education and Training (CLEET) and is mandated by Oklahoma state law for eligibility to receive a permit to carry a defensive handgun. The Oklahoma Self-Defense Act (Oklahoma Statute Title 21:1290) is the Oklahoma legislation that governs the legal carry and use of a firearm for self-defense. In this course, we will go over the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act in its entirety so that all participants understand the laws regarding safe and legal carry and use of firearms as well as the associated implications as outlined by the Oklahoma statutes. We will also go over handgun SAFETY, parts, operation, cleaning, and storage so that all participants have a familiarity of handguns regardless of prior shooting experience. Upon completion of a CLEET-required test on gun safety and all necessary range exercises required by the state of Oklahoma, all participants will receive a Certificate of Completion that they can submit with all other necessary requirements to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in an application for an Oklahoma SDA Handgun License.
