Oregon CHL Class


COST: MRPC members $25.00 NON-Members $55.00

The Medford Rifle and Pistol Club is proud to offer a COMPREHENSIVE Concealed Firearm Course.

Held at the MRPC Indoor Range on the second Saturday of each month.

This class offers far more than other CHL classes that merely meet the minimum standards to obtain an Oregon Conceal Handgun License.

Using a firearm for self-defense can have serious consequences. Making a wrong decision can thrust you into the criminal court system and/or result in a civil lawsuit. This is why you want to take a comprehensive class that offers you the best training available.


  • Firearms and the Law – Possession, Ownership, Storage and Concealed Carry
  • Situational Awareness plus Self-Protection Inside and Outside the Home – Learning these skill sets can be a matter of survival for you and your family.
  • Avoidance – Important steps you need to take before using deadly force.
  • Critical Decisions and The Use of Deadly Force – Covers many of the important decisions you will need to make before, during and after the use of deadly force.
  • Pistol Knowledge, Safe Gun Handling, Concealment Holsters and Survival Tactics
  • The Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting and Defensive Ammunition Selection – Includes the skills needed to shoot safely and accurately.
  • Live Fire Practice – Course includes 1 hour of live fire instruction on the MRPC indoor range.

Taught by one of the Rogue Valley’s top firearms instructors, Phil Grammatica – NRA Certified Firearms Instructor (dba: Refuse To Be A Victim Personal Protection Training)

This is the only CHL course sanctioned by the Medford Rifle and Pistol Club.
