BASIC PISTOL TRAINING with
Self Defense Law:
Be trained and prepared to defend yourself!
Many times, an armed citizen can defend themselves without ever firing a shot!
Learn safe and proper gun handling.
NOW: $95.00! per student***
I refuse to be the cheapest when I know I am giving the best in training!
I have been keeping my classes small, no more than 6 students. That way I can give YOU individual attention.
I do need a minimum of TWO Students to make up a class.
There is a NO fee for the gun range!
All you need is your gun and 100 rounds of ammo.
I supply the eye & ear protection and the targets.
You get the certificate, which says you took the basic pistol class, self defense class.
Give me a call, or pass this web page on to your friends in need.
Call me if you have questions about the age of children.
I keep the class size small to provide individual attention.
Questions about guns or ammo? Give me a call! I'll even meet you at a gun shop
(Athens area) to help you select a firearm to fit YOUR needs.
Classes available in two evenings or all day (8hr class) ***
**** Small classes may be as little as 7 hrs. it just depends on discussion and time needed at the shooting range.
Call 256-431-6702- ASAP to reserve your dates.
This class of instruction is ideal for anyone who needs training in the safe use and care of their firearm. This class is also a great refresher for those who have owned a handgun, but never had formal training or training in SELF DEFENSE LAW.
Class size will be limited to 6 so I can provide individual attention.
I am, Paul, the instructor, with 23 yrs Law Enforcement experience, and CERTIFIED Instructor by the NRA, (NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION.)
Live fire will be limited to two students at a time.
Private classes are available!
Training will include Live Fire at a private shooting range after classroom instruction which includes:
A) Pistol knowledge and Safe gun Handling
B) Ammunition Knowledge and fundamentals of pistol shooting,
C) Basic elements of self defense shooting; INCLUDED! self defense is not usually a regular part of this course as provided by the NRA. I include SELF DEFENSE!
D) Practice loading with "dummy ammo" and Dry Fire practice before we go to;
E) Firing live ammo at the PRIVATE range
F) Maintaining your pistol, safe cleaning and maintenance.
FULL DISCLOSURE NOTICE: As of May 1st, 2016,
The NRA has drastically changed their BASIC PISTOL CLASS. Now, instead of potential students finding an instructor and signing up for a class, the NRA wants you to pay them $65 and take the classroom part of the instruction on line, on their web site. Then you go find a Certified Instructor such as myself and do the actual shooting part of the course. I assume the NRA expects me to charge less to make up for what they charge? I have also contacted numerous other Certified NRA Instructors and they seem to agree with me.
I am going to go right on teaching the classes as before. I paid a lot of money to attend the NRA school, and maintain the certification. I do not see why a potential student would want to pay the NRA $65 and then pay me $95, when they can get the whole thing for $95. The only difference would be that I could NOT give you the NRA valid Certificate. I will give a Certificate, which says you passed the NRA course, PLUS the Self defense Instruction, which NRA does NOT include.
I see no reason, in the State of Alabama, why a normal citizen would need the NRA certificate. Some States, such as Tennessee, which requires training to get a carry permit, do not recognize the NRA cert, because it does not include self defense laws.
Alabama does NOT require a NRA certification for owning or carrying a firearm.
Any QUESTIONS, Please call me. Paul, 256-431-6702
