"The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world... The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!"
– President Theodore Roosevelt
Firearms Classes
Some trainers may boast of 40-50-90 person class sizes.
Some trainers do not instruct for the full training hours required.
Unfortunately there are some trainers who are not actually properly certified by the Organizations that they attempt to teach. Click here for more info
And sure, some training programs are cheaper.
At Campbell Personal Defense WE believe personalized instruction is paramount and our Class size is small (5-25 person maximum)to allow for a better learning environment. Whether you are taking a crime avoidance course or crisis mgmt training or basic pistol instruction, you have paid good money for instruction and you deserve the proper attention to your training and guidance for success.
Range time also is managed to assure that the student receives the proper attention and direction that they deserve. If you can't hit the target, there's not much sense in carrying a gun. Many range classes can be limited to not over 4 students per instructor.
We can and will, upon request, also schedule all female classes for you and your friends if you would be more comfortable in this learning environment. We understand that some new to firearms and shooting sports may be more at ease in the beginning not having the "guys" around.
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A GROUP OF FRIENDS OR COLLEAGUES WHO WANT TO TAKE ONE OF THESE CLASSES, and if you have a location we can use as a classroom, then PLEASE EMAIL me on the "CONTACT US" PAGE AS WE CAN COME TO YOU if that makes more sense.
We also do Employer Group training for any of the Course's listed below.
