Why take a Concealed Carry Class from
Advantage Firearms Education & Training?
That is a question often asked of our staff. It is a reasonable question as there are many people teaching CCW in our area.
Potential students who compare their options based on the course length say “I can go here or there and get the training in 3 hours, why should I spend 8 hours with you?”
One of the most obvious differences is that we require our CCW students to shoot a qualification course of fire. This may not sound like much but it would be a major benefit if we ever find ourselves in court. Yes, we say ourselves, as we would stand beside you throughout any (criminal or civil) court actions. I testify as an expert witness in shooting cases and charge a fee for this service to people who are NOT my students. This very issue alone could save you in excess of $10,000 if this service were ever needed.
Let’s not forget the curriculum content. Our CCW courses cover so much more information than what is required by the respective states. We want to provide you with the tools necessary to survive on the street as well as in the court room. Our programs cover much more than the minimum required discussion of the state’s CCW laws and firearm safety.
Our courses offer very detailed discussions on Firearm Safety and Selection, Ballistic Considerations, the Criminal Mind, Powers of Awareness and Avoidance, Criminal and Civil Liabilities, Shoot - Don’t Shoot Scenarios, Police and Criminal Interaction, and much more.
The presentation on Ballistic Consideration alone is a unique and major component of our training. This section clearly depicts the true effectiveness of the handgun for defense. Based on an over thirty year passion on how bullets cause trauma in human tissue and backed by science and clinically proven facts and without any folk lore or opinion, we explore the many limitations of the handgun for defense. Television and movies are not reality and your understanding of such potentially life altering situations must be grounded in reality.
There are many more factors that when considered, clearly indicate that the obvious choice for CCW training should be Advantage Firearms Education & Training. We feel so strongly about our training programs and the importance of you maintaining your understanding and performance that we allow FREE repeats. That’s right! Since we opened our doors over 25 years ago we have always had the following policy in place.
At Advantage Firearms Education & Training, you may repeat any class completed, forever for FREE. We can’t think of a better way to put our money where our mouth is, when it comes to making sure we do whatever it takes to keep you trained, safe and up-to-date.
