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. Most of my classes are 2-3 students. That way I can give YOU individual attention.

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.
