Workshop: Essential Pistols: Safety, Operation, Handling, and Legal Concealment 0

When: 7pm, October 7th.
Where: okcCoCo
Are you interested in knowing more about pistols, maybe even getting a concealed carry license, but you don’t know much about pistols? Are you uncomfortable going to a gun or sporting goods store to explore and learn more? Then this class is for you. There will be no real guns or ammunition at this class — only animations and models will be used to allow you to relax and learn about handguns, how they work, and how to handle them safely. You will learn the differences between handgun types, and why you might want each of them. And, you will learn more about the concealed carry licensing process. Please note that this is not a concealed carry class. The class requires registration, but it is free to attend. Nothing will be offered for sale at this class — this is a public service offering. Do not bring a gun to this class; no guns are allowed on the property.

Thanks to your help, we can look back together with pride knowing that we have started something special and unique in Oklahoma.

New Memberships

As part of our continued growth and evolution, we are excited to be able to launch new memberships that offer even more services than ever before while retaining a tiered pricing scheme designed to be affordable for anyone from freelancers to full time professionals. We have also added memberships to help small businesses take advantage of okcCoCo for meeting and work space.

Community Groups

We have regularly hosted a wide variety of community groups including Refresh, the Java Users Group, the SQL Developers Group, the Developers Group, the SharePoint Users Group, Cocoa Heads, OK.rb the Ruby Users Group, the PHP Users Group, LUGnuts the Linux Users Group, the Final Cut Pro Users Group, the DC405, the Functional Programming Group, the Geek Writers, the Podcasting Club, the Bootstrappers Beer and the Oklahoma Video Producers Association. We are very proud to say that many of these groups started at and are supported by the okcCoCo. We stream live and digitally record many of the groups that meet at the okcCoCo. The archive of over 150 presentation is an amazing educational resource and is available for free viewing online. We continue to seek out existing community groups of all types, and welcome passionate individuals interested in starting new community groups.

Workshops and Meetings

It has been our pleasure to host well over 100 smaller events at the okcCoCo. We have had workshops and classes on topics such as iPhone development, information security, typography, photography, making, crafting and more. We have also been able to open our space up for business meetings, corporate offsites, marketing events, multiday training and social events. If you know of anyone looking to hold small or large events, please tell them about the okcCoCo. We have a range of spaces and services available at reasonable prices. We can host events ranging in size up to 250 people.

Fostering Business

We have also had much success helping to foster and grow businesses at the okcCoCo. While many of our events are aimed to encouraging and educating the community about business opportunities and mechanics, we spend a good amount of time helping our member businesses promote themselves, find new clients, learn about available resources, and find professionals to work with. The okcCoCo has become a nexus of professional connections. If you need help on a project, are looking to start a company, are looking for freelance or full time work, please contact us and let us help.

This next year looks even more promising than the last. Come help us make it so.
