Gaines Concealed Carry Offers In-Home Classes

The Chief Instructor can come to your location to provide personalized training. All courses are taught using high quality USCCA developed materials and conform to USCCA standards. The Chief Instructor will fully engage students in course content by means of PowerPoint slides, embedded videos, and discussion.

Convenience. You don't need to travel and the courses can be scheduled at a time that is convenient to you, family, and/or friends. The Chief Instructor will provide laptop computer, monitor, textbooks, and all supplementary materials. All you need to provide is an electrical outlet, table and chairs. Participants are encouraged to take notes.

Individualized Attention. Because of small group size and comfortable setting, the Chief Instructor can provide participants with personal attention, address special needs of participants, and make certain that all your questions are addressed. While many ranges offer excellent courses in firearms safety, their classes are much larger and can be intimidating, as they place you in an unfamiliar setting with strangers.

Hands on Training. In many courses taught outside the home, firearms are not permitted in the classroom. However, since the course is being offered in your residence, this limitation does not apply. During class, however, all firearms must remain unloaded and encased. No live ammunition is permitted in the classroom itself. At the appropriate time the Chief Instructor will demonstrate and permit you to demonstrate safe handling of your firearm.

Learn How to Defend Your Family in Your Home. Another important benefit of In-Home Training is that the Chief Instructor can show you how to develop a home defense plan and identify specifics for improving it.

Save Money.It is strongly recommended that both spouses participate in training. Discounted pricing becomes available to the hosting household when additional persons are invited. Please call the Chief Instructor to learn more.
