FAQ: When can I schedule a class?
I schedule CCW classes on demand. For Example, my CCW Renewal group class tuition is $95, including range fees, targets, and qualification for up to 3 guns (using your ammo). I’ll schedule your group class when you call. Then if others sign up for that time/date between your call and the class time/date they are included. If no one signs up you get a private class at the group rate. The only time the private class tuition applies is when a person does not want the class opened-up to others. I teach in the afternoons and on Saturdays. I generally do NOT teach on Sundays, or on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday evenings.
FAQ: What's distinctive about a class at Basic Gun Safety?
In addition to what almost everybody offers in their CCW classes, you’ll get computer-timed presentation from concealment analysis/training using my laser shot recorder (LASR™ software using a CoolFire™ Glock 17). We’ll do a computer analysis of your grip using MantisX™ technology, and you’ll get some of the same pistol skill coaching from me that I gave to the US Military Team last summer in preparation for their World Championships in the Czech Republic. I had three podium finishes in this competition between 1968 and 1973 (Paris, Hanover, and Rome). Then I trained the US DoD Military Pentathlon Team at the Olympic Training Center for Modern Pentathlon from 1976 - 1981.
FAQ: What's FREE?
Exciting news! I just negotiated a deal for my students with Real World Shooting in Huntington Beach so anyone taking a CCW class from me gets gift certificate for one hour of simulation training with their highly experienced faculty. Their staff includes retired police officers with real world gun fighting experience. They have a state-of-the-art simulator with over 200 realistic scenarios requiring split-second "shoot/no-shoot" decision-making. You will be challenged with potential threats in a 360 degree environment. You shoot real firearms (with recoil) that have been modified so laser shots are recorded for accuracy and tactical decision-making analysis after each scenario. Local law enforcement uses their training/simulator. They normally charge $300 for 2 people for 2 hours.
