    Time for my CPL..where do I go?

    Anybody have a good recommendation for where I can go get my CPL? I want to take my class either Saturday, or Sunday, preferably in an OC location around Novi/Livonia/Westland/Northville area? I was going to go to Action Impact..the range I usually go to..but, their instructor is known to kick people out of his classes for arguing that OC isn't a danger to society. They also have a big sign on their door that says "all firearms must be concealed unless in range area"

    So far the only OC friendly place I know if is Firearm Exchange on Schoolcraft, but their class is $125 (It comes with a 1 month membership which is $25)

    How long have you been a resident of the state?
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    Full time 2 years, but before that, I lived here with my dad every weekend for 20 years. I just got my drivers lic a month ago, but I do have bills that state I've lived here for two years. I know there is a 6 month rule for being a resident to get a CPL. I shouldn't have a problem with that, I hope.

    Others may have other recommendations, but Rick Ector has been a friend of open carry and Michigan open carry, Inc.

    He won't feed you bullsh|t about open carry that you may hear from other instructors.

    Look him up on Facebook, "Rick's Firearm Academy of Detroit". Tell him Phil sent you.

    Hey Mike -

    I found your thread on this subject from TWO YEARS AGO!
    http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...r-CPL-training

    Mr. Webb is also another good choice.

    I just looked into his website and it is $149.99 + $35 Range Expenses because I'd miss the 14 day window for their next class. That's a bit (wayyyy) more than I was expecting to pay haha, since I believe I still have to pay another 150 at the Wayne Country Clerks office to get everything processed.

    I called the place by my house and they said they are OC friendly, so I might just stick with that and save me some money.

    Thank you though!

    If you can hold off until December 1st I have a class going that I could get you in.

    It is AT the Firearm Exchange (They allow other instructors to rent class space, and do there classes their, I am not affiliated with them.)

    As you have said it's OC friendly (However due to NRA safety rules, you will have to unload during class).

    It's only $100, and I include everything with it, all the course materials, some extra stuff I put in the packet, I cover your range time, and I even bring in Pizza, and pop.

    I also do a segment on OC (I even give you a copy of AG opinion 7113).

    Dean Greenblatt is coming in to cover the legal section.

    It's from 9-5:30 all one day, and obviously the shooting is done on site.

    If you, or anyone else is interested PM me.

    It seems another 2 weeks wait wouldn't be a great deal to get a class from someone who won't teach you FUD about OC, so if you could get the day off I would go to that class
    My reasons to OC
    1. to raise awareness of the legality of open carry in Michigan
    2. To raise awareness that good people carry guns
    3. A deterrent to people so that I won't be targeted
    4. Because it's more comfortable than CC in most situations
    5. Because I can and want to
    6. Because it's perfectly legal
    7. Self defense

    1 more week for the class and thn 2 more weeks to process, 3 weeks...eh, I need to get it sooner. + the place I'm going to is OC friendly. I may still take his class after anyway, think it would be nice, even if I have my cpl already

    Dude? Must you start a thread for everything.

    He is still in the yellow pages. I know your generation doesn't know how to operate that hi-tech pagey book thingy

    http://www.yellowpages.com/nationwid...ical-457930542

    If he's still doing private one on one classes (he did this on special requests) you'll get more than your monies worth.
