WITH ALL THE FIREARMS TRAINING ADS HERE & ON CRAIGSLIST COMPETING FOR YOUR ATTENTION, AND YOUR MONEY - AS CONSUMERS THE IMPORTANT QUESTION IS.....WHAT AM I GETTING FOR MY MONEY? AT DEFENSIVE SHOOTING INSTRUCTORS.....WHAT YOU "ARE" GETTING, IS A THOROUGH EDUCATION; PURE AND SIMPLE.
THERE ARE DEFINITELY SHORTER & LESS EXPENSIVE COURSES AVAILABLE; BUT YOU ARE INTERESTED IN CARRYING A FIREARM - DON'T YOU WANT YOUR EDUCATION TO BE AS THOROUGH AS IS POSSIBLE? WE DO!
OUR CLASSES "ARE" VERY COMPREHENSIVE: BOTH IN DEVELOPING BASIC COMFORT WITH FIREARMS AND UNDERSTANDING THE RAMIFICATIONS OF CARRYING AND HAVING TO USE A FIREARM, UNDER FLORIDA LAW.
OUR CLASSES "ARE NOT" THE SHORT CUT OR GUN SHOW TYPE OF CLASSES.
60% OF OUR STUDENTS ARE WOMEN WHO HAVE NEVER HANDLED FIREARMS BEFORE AND GET SO MUCH FROM OUR CLASSES - THEY REFER US TO THEIR FRIENDS & MANY INTRODUCE THEIR CHILDREN TO FIREARMS SAFETY THROUGH OUR "FIRST STEPS" CLASSES!
OUR INSTRUCTORS TAKE THE TIME TO MAKE SURE THAT OUR STUDENTS UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY CAN DO, WHAT & WHY THEY CAN'T, AND HOW TO SURVIVE A VIOLENT CONFRONTATION.
WE TEACH PRIVATE "FIRST STEPS" PISTOL COMBINED WITH FLORIDA CONCEALED WEAPON PERMIT CLASSES EVERY DAY. WE OFFER EXPERIENCED SHOOTERS A 2 HOUR CONCEALED WEAPON CARRY PERMIT CLASS - BY APPOINTMENT.
