I want to let everyone know we are open for business with even more classes and higher attendance than ever before. If you haven’t already gotten your concealed carry permit I strongly encourage you to do so. If you have already taken my class you are welcome to sit in on another, for a refresher, free of charge. It’s obvious, with all the unrest in the world, that all law abiding citizens should exercise their right to own and carry a firearm. It is also imperative that those who carry firearms fully understand where to carry them, when to use them, and how to use them. Contact me today if I can help you in any way.
I also want to thank everyone for their encouragement and support. It’s nice to know that people can see right through this political witch hunt.
