CPL Training

The course needed for obtaining a Concealed Pistol License in the State of Michigan is the NRA's Personal Protection In The Home.  This course takes about ten hours and REQUIRES shooting. I DO offer private sessions of this course.

Pre-Requisites

Personal Protection In The Home is for students with at least a fundamental knowledge of firearm safety, handling, and shooting.  This is NOT an "intro to handguns" course.  If you are a first-time shooter, I strongly recommend that you take the NRA Basic Pistol course before taking this course.

Schedule

Currently there is not an open class scheduled.  If you are interested in arranging a private session of this course, you may contact me and the session can be scheduled at your convenience.

Cost

A private session of this course starts at $225 total for 1-3 attendees.  There is a $75 cost for each additional attendee.

 

The cost to attend an open session (meaning a session I have already scheduled and has open seats available) of this course is $85 per attendee. 

 

This cost includes your textbook and lunch (contact me if you have dietary restrictions)

What To Bring

Government-issued photo ID

Eye Protection (prescription eyeglasses with lenses less than 1.5" tall do not meet this requirement)

Ear Protection (earmuffs are recommended instead of ear plugs, but either is acceptable)

Notebook & Pen/Pencil

Handgun (any caliber is acceptable, I encourage you to bring the one you intend to carry)

Ammunition, 150 rounds minimum (LEAVE THIS IN YOUR CAR UNTIL WE GET TO THE RANGE)

Clothing for the weather (the shooting portion of the class will take place outside)

Closed Toed Shoes

Optional:

Baseball Cap

Holster

Due to insurance restrictions I can not provide rental firearms at this time.  I do have non-functional and/or facsimile firearms that will be used as demonstrator units during the classroom portion.  Because of this, two attendees could share a single firearm between themselves for the live fire portion of the course.

Ammunition

This page was last updated in December of 2021 and I understand that ammunition is currently very expensive to purchase.  The 100 shot requirement is set by the NRA and I can not waive or adjust this.  I require you to bring 150 rounds to compensate for potential missed shots that result in having to re-shoot a portion of the final qualification.  If you run out of ammunition and have not yet achieved qualification, we will have to arrange a private session of shooting at additional cost before a certificate of completion can be awarded.  At this time none of my wholesale distributors have ammunition available so I am unable to provide any.

Basic Pistol Training

This is a basic course intended for those who are first time shooters, first time gun owners, or would like to become more familiar with handguns.  Owning a firearm is not required for this course.

Pre-Requisites

None.

Schedule

Currently there is not an open class scheduled.  If you are interested in arranging a private session of this course, you may contact me and the session can be scheduled at your convenience.

Private Classes

I offer private classes for one-on-one or small group training, so that the course can be tailored to go at each individual's pace, and students can feel free to ask whatever questions they might have completely judgement-free.  If you already own a handgun, private sessions also allow me to tailor the instruction specifically to the model of handgun you own.

Cost

The cost for this course is $150 per session for up to three attendees, an additional $25 for each additional attendee.  

Due to insurance restrictions I cannot provide rental handguns for this class.  I will have non-functional/disabled and/or facsimile firearms used as demonstration units during the classroom portion of the course.
