⚠️ COVID-19 UPDATE ⚠️
1) We are still doing training – just not in large groups at this time.
2) If you already signed up for a course and already paid your registration fee we have been in contact (or will be shortly) to confirm your course date and time. We have been very busy trying to get everyone in as soon as possible.
3) If you are currently not feeling well, have any of the symptoms of the virus, are in the high risk for exposure group, have been exposed to the virus, or recently traveled anywhere there has been an outbreak you will be asked to re-schedule.
4) We are still doing private courses. So, if you have a couple people that want to get this done on a weekday, we might be able to get you in.
5) We do NOT have ammo or firearms for sale, and we only have limited ammo for students to use if you are renting from us.
6) Don’t panic … we will get through this, but if you don’t own a gun, or any ammo for it, at this point … I don’t know what to tell you … keep looking and let us know if you find any.
Based in Lapeer County, we conduct Defensive Firearms Training on our private range where we can create a safer and more realistic training environment than ranges that are normally open to the public.
Our training is designed specifically for the civilian defender, or concealed carrier in Michigan. Classes are held in a relaxed setting and kept small, to ensure you can get all the help you need to learn how to defend yourself in an attack.
Defensive shooting skills, along with the drills and gear used, are inherently specialized and distinct from those of target shooting, competition or law enforcement.
Not JUST a CPL Instructor
Our instructors hold multiple certifications at both the state and national levels (see below). We believe that the best instructor is also an avid student, and strive to continually upgrade our own skills and knowledge. As part of this belief, we understand that our own teachings need to be subject to critique and open to evolution. [more]
You should be asking your instructor more than “how much does it cost?” … things like;
- How long have you been a licensed concealed pistol carrier in Michigan?
- Do you have any formal teacher training (other than a weekend NRA or USCCA instructor course)?
- When is the last time you attended a training course where the focus was to improve your training abilities?
- What have you changed your mind about since you started teaching?
- How many people have you trained in the last year?
- Can I talk to your previous students?
