Upcoming Ohio/Michigan/Florida Concealed Carry classes --- 8 STUDENTS MAX PER CLASS:
One Day Classes
Classes are held every Saturdays and Sunday, (with a Weekday class at least once a month). They are one day classes so you pick either a Saturday, Sunday, or weekday.
Since I've spent 10 years making sure the 12 hour class was filled with valuable, life-saving, information, I'm still struggling with what to cut out of the class to shorten it to the new 8 hour requirement.
It took me awhile and I'm still
"tweaking" it, but the class runs from
8 AM to 4 PM on weekends
and 10 AM to 6 PM on weekdays!
OK - I HAVE TO ADMIT DEFEAT!
IT'S TAKEN ME A YEAR TO REALIZE THAT 8 HOURS ISN'T ENOUGH TIME TO TEACH YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE TO ME!
MY STUDENTS CHOSE ME BECAUSE THEY HEARD I DON'T JUST TEACH YOU HOW TO SHOOT PAPER
AND JUST GET YOU WHAT YOU NEED TO GET A CCW LICENSE:
I TEACH YOU HOW TO SURVIVE A CRIMINAL ATTACK, AND LESS TIME MEANS LESS INFO, WHICH MEANS LESS OF A CHANCE TO SURVIVE!
SO FULL CLASSES ARE NOW 9 HOURS AND, ON WEEKENDS, RUN FROM 8AM TO 5PM, AND WEEKDAYS FROM 9AM TO 6PM!
(Smaller classes during the "summer slump"
may be closer to 8 hours due to reduced questions.)
Coffee, bottled water, soft-drinks, breakfast rolls are provided, as is a lunch of Vito's fold-over subs! (They're unbelievably good!)
You also use my gun and my ammunition, all included
in the $120 total.
Do not bring any gun or ammunition
to the class
HEY, A CCW CLASS IS A PERFECT GIFT. IT SHOWS YOU REALLY CARE!
IF TWO OR MORE OF YOU WANT TO BE IN THE SAME CLASS TOGETHER, YOU'D BETTER BOOK EVERYONE AT THE SAME TIME. I DO NOT HOLD SEATS UNTIL THE $60 PER STUDENT DEPOSIT, (NON-REFUNDABLE), IS RECEIVED. IF ONE PERSON BOOKS INTO A CLASS WITH ALL 8 SEATS AVAILABLE RIGHT NOW, THOSE OTHER SEATS COULD BE GONE IN MINUTES!
All payments are
"non-refundable" and the seats you reserve are "non-reschedulable" to make sure students show up on time --- even on sunny days!
If you paid just the $60 deposit, the balance of $60 is due at the time of class.
(If you've made a deposit and don't show up on time and lose your $60, don't complain to me. I lose the $60 balance I would have gotten if I sold that seat to somebody with some sense of responsibility!)
SATURDAYS...(Time: 8AM - 5PM)
||7 Seats||6 Seats||8 Seats||7 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats|
WEDNESDAYS... (Time: 8AM - 5PM)
Demand for weekday classes has dropped to the point were I no longer put them on the schedule. If you have 3 or more people wanting a Wednesday class and are willing to pay the entire $120 in advance, NON-REFUNDABLE, I'm willing to schedule that class.
SUNDAYS...(Time: 8AM - 5PM)
||7 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats||8 Seats|
Classes shown in red and with a strike-out, (like
5/28/05), are full and are no longer

NRA Basic Rifle and NRA Basic Shotgun
These classes are scheduled as needed or requested. They require 3 or more students for me to schedule a class.
Note: In the 10 years since my training business was formed, only 8 people have ever asked for these classes --- never more than one request within 6 months.
What I'd suggest is that you go to: "www.wheretoshoot.org", (a website sponsored by the NSSF of which I am a member), click on "Find a place to shoot", then specify how far you'd be willing to drive and what your zipcode is.
That will produce a list of various shooting facilities and gun clubs in order of distance from your zipcode. If you're not aware of it, let me assure you that your best "bang for your buck" is to join a gun club. Start calling or emailing the clubs and facilities on that list.
I'm pretty sure that you'll find a gun club that will both offer you a place to shoot, and probably offer you the training you require --- for a price that's much more affordable than what I would charge.
Please call or email for further information.
Metallic Cartridge Reloading
"Back in the day" there was a distinct cost and accuracy motive for reloading rifle and pistol rounds. That's really no longer the case due to the efficiencies of mass production and the increased capability by manufacturers to produce precisely duplicated rounds which result in very good repeatable accuracy.
So, unless you shoot a lot of "high dollar" rounds, (like the S&W 500 Magnum), or hunt Rocky Mountain Goats at 500+ yards, the only benefit to reloading your own ammunition is to kill a bunch of time!
The S&W 500 Magnum round I mentioned above retails for ~$3.00 each. You can make your own for $0.69 each so yes, I reload that round with a huge smile on my face!
Anyway, if you really are considering going into reloading, call me. In most cases I'll attempt to talk you out of it but in a very small amount of cases it may be a good idea!
