CCW class

Well after thinking about it for just over a year I finally picked up a XD sub compact 9mm. I'm looking for a good ccw class. I don't want no fly by night class. I want something in depth. Also a good advanced class.

Thanks
Mike


Oh I hear Pete's indoor range does a bowling pin shooting night on Thursdays!! Sounds like a good time

Hey Mike,

I know it might be a bit out of the way for you, but I know of a great place out here in Westland that has a great class. The name of the place is Firing Line. Just do a google search or yahoo search, and you will find them.

Doesn't RedZ put a class on? I think he is an instructor. I'm not sure on the breadth and depth of the class, but he would be a guy to call for a deal. I took mine with Simon a few years back. Great class!

It seems like most of the classes are set up the same...classroom time with an Attorney then range time.

I actually took my class through a gentleman named Rob Reed. Rob actually posted on this forum a while back, and runs a pretty good one day class. He does the range portion in Roseville.

Robs business is called SWAT academy. Sorry, don't have his number handy.

I think Firing Line runs a more in depth class, and goes more into defensive shooting. I believe it is actually a two day class. I am taking their personal protection series of classes, and they are awesome. Their range is the nicest indoor gun range I have been to.

I am currently carrying the Smith & Wesson M&P Compact 9mm. 1500 rounds through it and not a single jam, even with re-loads.

He must have been Simon's (aka Aus) partner. A bunch of us took the class through him

Thanks Jon. Simon told me to call Rob but gave me a (248) number. I'll try that number and also do a search for business.
