I am taking this class with my two adult sons. I’m looking forward to learning as much from this as I did from the carbine class.

Looking forward to it. I’ll confirm headcounts and send out info in the next couple days. Didn’t you say you had a 4th interested as well?

GREAT class today! This class was well worth the $100 spent. Starts out basic and by the end of the day you challenged! Charles does an amazing job of explaining/teaching the skills for each drill.

Thanks for offering this class for such an affordable price!

Just curious if 9mm requirement is a deal breaker. I've got a .40 beretta I keep as my go to home protection pistol when my PCC isn't nearby. I've spent a good bit of time and ammo training with it and would like to get better.

No, 9mm is just a recommendation because that’s all I have dummy rounds for.

ETA: I’d recommend buying at least 10 dummy rounds from here: https://www.stactionpro.com/action-trainer-dummy-rounds-c-1.html?zenid=aalkvpobet239born2olggrfl7
With the prevalence of 9mm, it don’t make business sense at this time for me to buy dummy rounds in every caliber.

This course was outstanding. It is great for novice and intermediate shooters. I think even the experts could learn something new. The class qualifies for concealed carry permit training and has a lot of value. Anyone who carries or wants to carry and has not had any formal training should consider taking this course.

Besides, how can shooting 500+ rounds with a great instructor not be fun? Great job, Charles!

I brought my two 30+ year olds to the class. I was a little nervous because they didn’t have a lot of firearms experience. By the end of the class they were so much more comfortable and had learned a ton. They want to get their CCW permits. I feel much better about them being able to safely handle a gun. All three of us came away with a lot of things to practice. Charles is a great instructor that knows how to challenge students at all levels. I thought it was a great value for all of us.35D5EBC7-4978-4065-ACFB-4ACE9A23B6C0.jpg
