ALASKA CONCEALED HANDGUN PERMIT (Add On)
BEAR SAFETY & PROTECTION
Call or email for information on upcoming courses or to discuss your particular needs. Generally, only those who have pre-registered are guaranteed a space as class size is limited and fills up quickly.
Classes and instruction range from beginner or basic level to intermediate and advanced levels to include the AK Concealed Handgun Permit (ACHP) Course. Classes are generally progressive in subject matter and skill level, meaning completion of the Basic Handgun Course (or demonstrated equivalent experience/skill) is desired and recommended in order to take the intermediate/next level course.
Classes are conducted in a very relaxed and open classroom setting where there are no dumb questions. In the Basic Handgun Course, there are some participants who have never held or fired a handgun, some only once or twice, but all wish to be more knowledgeable about firearms, how they operate and how to safely shoot and handle them. Topics include discussions on how to safely have & store firearms in the home---especially when there are children around.
Participants do not need to own a firearm for the Basic Handgun Course. The instructor will provide any firearms necessary for both the class times and for the range. No other firearms or ammunition will be allowed in the classroom or at the range. Students taking intermediate or advanced level courses must have their own firearm plus related equipment (holster, extra magazines for semi-automatics or speed loaders for revolvers etc. ) if required and be very familiar with their firearm and equipment.
Courses are usually scheduled on a Saturday or one or two weekday evenings plus Saturday, depending on the course length. Additionally, the Basic Handgun Course is also offered as a “Ladies Only” course and is then called “Guns & Roses”.
I am available (for a small fee) as a speaker for lunch / dinner groups on topics such as: gun safety in the home; personal protection in the home and when out and about; etc. Please call or email to coordinate.
