I have taken Basic Handgun Training and Defensive Handgun Training 1 & 2 with Frank. Frank is an excellent patient teacher. You could just take his class to get your CCW. He offers that class along with live shooting instruction. I wanted to take more training to learn how do defend myself inside and outside of my home. Having a permit to carry a pistol to defend yourself is very different than knowing the techniques of defending yourself. Frank will help you with both. I couldn’t give a higher recommendation for these first three courses. If you think of it as an investment for the protection of you and you’re family, you won’t regret it.
