Provide our clients the education and skillsets necessary to obtain State, National, and Advanced firearm certifications.


We hold NRA Instructor credentials and are authorized by the MS Dept of Public Safety to teach MS Enhanced Carry courses.

Enhanced Carry Endorsement

A Mississippi Enhanced Carry Endorsement is actually a sticker placed on the reverse side of your Mississippi Firearms Permit. The endorsement removes most restrictions that burden a standard Mississippi Firearms Permit and authorizes you to legally conceal carry virtually everywhere in Mississippi. To receive an Enhanced Carry Endorsement you must successfully complete an eight hour course that includes gun safety and Mississippi gun law topics, as well as live fire exercises.

FAST-Academy offers Enhanced Carry classes for Hattiesburg and the surrounding area. The classroom portion of the course takes place at our Hattiesburg location right off 98W in the Oak Grove area. The live fire portion of the course is completed about 15 minutes away on our private range.

Firearms And Safety Training

We are Certified Instructors with decades of experience and a passion for firearms. Not only do we teach the MS Enhanced Carry course, but also other firearms courses such as the NRA Basic Pistol course, and the NRA Home Firearm Safety course. We also provide the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program free of charge to any school, church, or other organization that can gather at least 10 children between the ages of 4 and 10 years old.

If you really want to ratchet up the skillset we also offer the advanced handgun courses of Application of Defensive Pistol and Dynamics of Defensive Pistol.
