About the classes

I teach in a relaxed atmosphere.  Average classroom time is 3-3 1/2 hours. I keep the classes interesting with FBI stats and real shooting scenarios.
What about the cold weather? 
 We have a warm classroom and the shooting staging area has portable heaters in it so the weather is not a problem!
Preparation for class
Students can either bring their own "eyes and ears", eye and ear protection, or I supply them. I also supply a handgun and ammo.  It is a .22 cal. 9 shot Taurus revolver for students that do not have a handgun but want their permits first.
