One Day CPL / CCW Class (NRA Personal Protection in the Home)
Saturday, February 25, 2017 from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM (EST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Develop the basic knowledge, skills and attitude necessary for the safe and efficient use of a firearm for protection of self and family, and acquire information on the law-abiding citizen’s right to self-defense. This course meets the training requirements for obtaining a state of Michigan Concealed Pistol License. This course includes classroom instruction, hands-on teaching, and range time; and assumes some prior experience with the pistol you will be using. Competency is subject to instructor verification through documentation of prior course work and/or demonstration of ability. Course includes NRA student handbook, NRA publications, information on concealed carry methods, laws and regulations, and practical application (range). The range where we will be shooting has handguns available to rent and ammunition for purchase. Completion of range exercises will require a minimum of 100 rounds of ammunition.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Although you may take the class at age 18, you must be at least 21 to apply for a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. While the class is informative and beneficial for persons of any age, if you intend to use the certificate to apply for a license, you may wish to wait until you are 21. Each attendee will need to present a valid government issued picture ID, such as; a driver's license or state ID.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
Please bring a well rested mind and a positive attitude. Class materials will be provided, but we recommended bringing highlighters, notepad and pens. For the range exercises you will need to bring a defensive caliber handgun and 100 rounds of the appropriate ammunition. Please leave all ammunition in your vehicle until instructed to retrieve it for the range exercises. NO AMMUNITION ALLOWED IN CLASSROOM AT ANY TIME. The facility where we will be training has guns for rent and ammunition for sale - these are NOT included in your tuition for the class.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Please contact Patriot Firearms Academy at email@example.com if you have any questions or require special accommodations.

We will have your information on record. You will not need to bring your ticket.
What is the refund policy?
The Intitial Deposit is non-refundable. If you paid in full at time of purchase, you may receive a refund less the initial deposit price.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes, the ticket is transferrable to eligible alternate attendees.
A word about hearing protection.
Your hearing is one of your most precious possessions. The sound levels associated with gunfire can easily exceed 130 dB and cause permanent damage to your hearing. On an indoor range, with several guns being fired nearby (amplified and reverberated by concrete walls) this is especially true. While the facility will have basic hearing protection available to you as part of the class, we recommend that you invest in a quality set of "electronic muffs" such as the Howard Leight Impact Sport. These ear muffs allow for normal sounds (such as conversation) to be amplified and heard clearly while "cutting off" all sounds above a certain decibel level. This allows you to wear foam ear plugs in addition to the muffs and still be able to communicate with your instructor as well as hear any range commands. Prices range from about $40 to well over $200.00. Remember, you get what you pay for. What is your hearing worth to you? The ones I mentioned above are widely available in sporting goods stores and also online for about $50.00.
