Excellent Class

Jim’s CCW class is informative, direct, and applicable. There’s no ego involved, he’ll occasionally insert relevant personal experience, but will move on well before it reaches the point of self-aggrandizement all too common in firearms circles. Male or female, new to guns or experienced, Jim breaks down the basic concepts, checks for understanding and only then continues. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.


Great CCW Class

As a first time CCW applicant I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. The classroom session was informative and in-depth, you will learn a lot and was interactive. The qualification/range time was great, Jim reviewed safety, grip, stance, and requirements. He is a very personable and makes you feel comfortable. I highly recommended this class, I will definitely take additional instruction with Jim.

Never taken any kind of gun safety class before! Jim not only gave accredited vital information, he made the class absolutely fun! Totally 💯 would recommend taking any class again from him! Plan on getting more in depth training on how to effectively use my handgun and feel more comfortable to carry! Thanks again Jim 🤩

Jim was informative, thorough, and made the class interesting. The tips/training you’ll get from him made it worth every penny. Jim went above and beyond what a normal CCW class typically teaches you.

I took Jim’s CCW class last month. I was apprehensive at first thinking that I would be criticized for my inexperience and the fact that I am a “mature” single woman. Jim gives a great class, lots of good information, and good stories to relieve tension and demonstrate important points of firearm handling. Both Jim and his wife Annaliese helped relieve my concerns. At the range, they both helped with suggestions on grip, stance, and posture. If I had known that working with them would be so comfortable, I would have taken a class months ago. I was impressed by the way they treated all of their students regardless of their age or level of experience (or inexperience). I highly recommend their CCW class.
