Private Handgun Lessons
Owning a handgun isn’t enough to keep you safe in a dangerous situation, knowing how to recognize it and how to respond with your handgun is extremely important. If you prefer to learn in private or a small group, my private lessons are the ideal way to learn. The lessons will cover what you need to get comfortable and competent with your handgun. It doesn’t happen overnight. Getting started the correct way with an experienced instructor will help you learn quickly and more importantly, correctly.
Lesson: 2 Hours
I recently took my CCW class with Jim. I was extremely nervous for more than one reason. One I was not able to practice as much as I would have liked and two I never was very good at testing in school. When I first got to the class and met Jim I was immediately reassured that he was going to be a incredible teacher. The way he went over everything he expected so that there was no unknown and he answered all questions that anyone asked with no judgement. I know in the one day that I spent in the class I leaned more then I thought I would including proper placement of you hands, feet and body when shooting and why they should be that way. He made sure that we all understood and would be completely prepared if we were every in a situation that we had to use out firearm to defend ourselves. When we were testing at the range he was very supportive and encouraging, he made me feel that there was nothing to be nervous about. I would recommend this class to anyone that I know wishing to get there CCW. I know I will be taking additional training from Jim to better myself when using any firearm.
I feel fortunate that I found the long range class Jim offered as he was able to fix in a few hours what i had been fighting with for close to a year. During the zero phase of day 1 he had me shooting 1 MOA shot groups which had been eluding me for a VERY long time. That right there made the class worth while, but Jim was not done. On day 2, shooting at distances Jim was driven to ensure I had a valid hit on each target out to 1,000 yds. I was also fortunate to repeat the process (zero and distances) with a different batch of ammunition on day 2 and Jim was motivated throughout.
I am looking forward to practicing the skills i learned during the class and taking additional classes that Jim offers.
If you really want to understand your weapon and how to properly utilize it to “protect yourself or your loved ones ” this is a must class. I have been around weapons since being very young. But, this will teach you to use your weapon to your advantage and to be more comfortable in doing so. Obviously practice makes these lessons better but the class was phenomenal. I like his enthusiasm, no nonsense approach and you will too. Class was worth every minute of training. Hope to do a follow-up soon. I highly recommend this class to anyone, from beginner to expert from man or woman. Great stuff. Thanks Jim!
Joined Team Kraken figuring “what the hell” i don’t know if I’ll get out of it what I put in. Got EVERYTHING I put in and more!! The group of like-minded people he put together was awesome! Not only was the group great but Jim himself is an amazing man to work with and more then willing to help with any question you may have. Jim, thanks for all your help and advice!!
Will definitely be using him, in the future for more training. Experienced to say the least, very knowledgeable guy. Enjoyed my time and new experiences.
