Limited Class Sizes
Our typical class does not exceed five people, to keep the focus on the students.
One on One training
All of our students receive one on one personalized instruction during their time in class
100% of students receive training on their schedule. Not one dictated to them, but one they have input on and can control.
We choose to have training in comfortable settings, examples being homes, offices, restaurants and cafes.
We use real firearms throughout the training and make them available for students to qualify with, at no additional cost.
Sample our course
We offer students the ability to sample any portion of our course before committing.
After choosing a schedule, students are given options for payment. We have never had "deposits" for classes, or had requirements of pre-payment before attendance.
We have taught students at no cost. Every so often we waive our class fees, under the right circumstances. Students are still responsible for and state application fees, range fees and ammunition costs.
We've thought of it all
Our price structure is simple and all inclusive:
$300 students and instructor develop a training schedule together,
$500 students tell the instructor the training schedule.
No Flexible Schedule
If you can't make the class on the date they set, you're out of luck.
No Personalized Training
Get ready for the cattle car: Instructors and stores are scrambling to fill classes with as many bodies as possible.
Training Guns or BYOG
A lot of instructors have gone to training guns, or you must provide a gun to attend the class in most cases. What if don't own one? Then you must "rent" one from the store or instructor at an additional charge.
No Free Trials
Call you local gun store and ask if you can attend the class first and decide if you would like to continue. Just make sure your ear is away from the receiver because the laughter or shouting will be loud...
(Other Instructors, Gun Shops, and the Big Box Stores)
Pay Now or Don't Attend
Most classes require payment upfront before attendance. If you haven't paid you might be asked to leave.
Many stores don't have employees teach the class, they hire an outside instructor. If they're hiring an outside instructor, why wouldn't you?
Gun Ranges Are Windowless
A lot of classes happen entirely at a gun range. all indoor ranges are windowless... How comfortable could that be?
Prepare to be nickel and dimed to the end, the class fee, the submission fee, the fingerprint fee (some classes make this a requirement), ammunition, gun rental, saftey equipment rental, range fee, etc.
This law encompasses the rules governing how individuals, businesses, and law enforcement
interact with private citizens who are allowed to carry a firearm for personal protection.
What are these rules, and can they be easily interpreted for the nonprofessional or layperson?
The simple answer is NO, unless you are an officer of the law or a defense attorney you may not
know or understand the law completely. Worse, even if you are an officer or attorney you may not
know or understand the law at the time of the scenario.
This is where knowing your rights are essential for all the citizens.

We accomplish this by speaking with our students directly to personalize the classes to their schedule and offer a variety of classroom options. Because we value your time, we also provide a start to finish approach to make sure the process
