Our Basic Handgun Course is a private class consisting of a one-on-one or a small (private) group session. We start with the basics: safety first.
This is an eight hour class that is outlined by the State of Tennessee to certify you for the Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit. It consists of 4 hours in the classroom and 4 hours on the range.
Our class is a culmination of training that we have learned from the nation's elite schools. This is not a beginner's class, you must know how to shoot your handgun and fully understand the functions of your gun.

I have been carrying for years. I learned a lot in this class. David has been to some of the best handgun schools in the country. He is a great instructor. I would recommend anyone who carries and lives within driving distance of Middle TN to attend one of his classes.
I took David's class and love it… He was a great trainer and he had a lot of patience with me... I recommend his class to everyone that hasn't ever taken handgun classes before. You will not be disappointed.
Very friendly people and an informative and helpful class. My wife had never fired a gun before the class and left the class informed, safe, certified, and confident. I hadn't fired a gun in many years and it was a great refresher and fun!
