If you own a gun, you are exercising your right to keep arms.
This classes teaches you how to bear arms.
These days, personal defense is the #1 reason why people buy guns. A gun and a concealed carry license by themselves, however, doesn't provide you any protection anymore than buying a guitar and some sheet music provides musical talent. This class covers the essentials of using a pistol to defend yourself as you live your everyday life. 

We keep this three-hour class small (just six students) in order to maximize the 1-1 training opportunities. The instruction is focused on helping you make the transition from being just a gun owner to someone who has the skills and confidence to defend what is most important in your life.
