CCW/CPL Class Student Testimonials
The Following Are On File In Our Office:

"Rick, Sorry that it has taken me so long to thank you. Although the class alone can't protect me or my family from danger, it has improved our ability to defend ourselves. The techniques and information that we covered in the class have taught me to be more aware and prepared period. I am more confident and comfortable when I leave home, knowing that I'm better prepared to address potentially dangerous confrontational situations. Once again thank you and I look forward to Session II (Personal Protection Outside The Home Course)."
- Mr. A. L. Odell III, Auto Industry Employee, Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan 48075

"Rick, Thanks for providing me this opportunity, it was very informative and I would definitely recommend your class to others. Take care!"
- Ms. M. Woods, Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan 48034
NRA Personal Protection In The Home (CCW/CPL) Training Class - $160.00

If You Live, Work, Or Play In Detroit, You Need A CCW/CPL!

Detroit is the most violent city in the USA. Acording to the FBI's crime stats for the first half of 2007 - January through June - the following violent crimes occurred in Detroit: 210 murders, 357 forcible rapes, 3,445 robberies, and 6,539 aggravated assaults.

Stated another way, each and every single day within the Detroit city limits one (1) person will be murdered, two (2) people will be forcibly raped, nineteen (19) people will be robbed, and thirty-six (36) people will be victims of an aggravated assault. Also, be advised that these numbers only reflect crimes that were reported; criminals, as a rule, do not report crimes committed against them.

Recently, a publishing company - CQ Press, a division of Congressional Quarterly - released its annual crime study. They coronated Detroit as "The Most Violent City in America." The study, reportedly, was the result of an analysis of the crime statistics reported, by American cities with populations of more than 100,000, to the FBI.

A Michigan Concealed Pistol License Is Now A Necessity In Detroit!

A Michigan CCW/CPL Permit allows you to carry a concealed firearm on your person (and in your vehicle) anywhere in the state of Michigan and 35 other states (except in designated zones) so that you may exercise greater responsibility over your own personal safety, the safety of your family, and the safety of other loved ones.

Regardless of your circumstances, whether it is a concern about rising crime rates in the city of Detroit and its surrounding suburbs, well-founded fears about the state releasing violent criminals early, troubles from an abusive ex-spouse or bothersome stalkers, or a sincere desire to learn more about personal protection, we can help you.

We Specialize In Training Students How To Safely Operate A Firearm!

We have trained metro-Detroit citizens from all walks of life how to safely handle, load, shoot, unload, and store firearms: teachers, housewives, registered nurses, hospitality employees, beauticians, real estate agents, lawyers, business owners, landlords, college students, social workers, and home-owners. We are confident that we can train you too!

No prior shooting or gun handling experience is needed! We train you from the ground up with safety being the number one concern. The Chief Firearms Instructor is also a NRA Appointed Training Counselor and an NRA Chief Range Safety Officer (CRSO). As such, he has authorization to train law-abiding citizens to be NRA Certified Firearms Instructors, has been designated as qualified by the NRA to inspect and certify shooting ranges, and has the credentials to safely oversee and conduct shooting activities at a firing range.

We are so confident about our Michigan Pistol Safety Training Class that we offer an unprecedented 100% satisfaction guarantee or your money back to any graduate of this training program! You have absolutely nothing to lose!

Furthermore, we have a free lifetime retake policy. At any time in the future you can sit in on any of our classes for a free refresher! This allows you to feel confident when you finally decide to apply for your permit or apply for a renewal. We do ask that you call us beforehand (No certificate or supplies issued).

Our Agenda Meets Michigan's CCW/CPL Educational Standards!

Our class is taught by NRA Approved Firearms Trainers and the legal portion of the class is taught by a Michigan licensed and state bar approved attorney who actively and currently practices in the fields of record expungement, lethal force, and self defense.

Other CCW/CPL class trainers use police officers to give the class legal advice as allowed by the state of Michigan. Don't be fooled! You should only receive legal advice from an attorney! There have been instances in which a justified self-defense shooting turned into a nightmare for the victimized homeowner just because he answered some "routine" questions from the attending police officers at the scene. You need to protect yourself not only from the criminals but also from overzealous police officers trying to increase their "collars" and District Attorneys needing increase their conviction rates.
