    CPL classes, where did you all go, how much?

    Title says it all guys. I have a buddy who wants to take it with his girlfriend.

    She lives in Howell, he lives in Flint Township.

    Either place is fine.

    I read about a class that was $60.

    Anyone know any that are sub $100?

    I paid $100, but at Advanced Ranges in Flint, if you go with your spouse, and have the same address, it's $100 each, but as a solo, it's $150.

    Thanks OCDO.

    I took mine in Caseville.

    The guy had a great setup in his garage (I took mine in December a few years ago) however his class was full of misinformation, and the PI he hired to answer legal questions was even worse, telling us we can ignore PFZ's, etc.

    I'm glad I took the class to carry, however I'm even more glad I took it upon myself to be a responsible gun owner and learn everything I could about firearm law, cause I could have very well been the next idiot in the news thinking I was doing right when I wasn't.

    The instructor's name was Mark Miller. Class was $100.

    Took mine at Williams Gun Sight. The class was good, had a Troy cop teach the law portion and shot 100 rounds. I think it was $130 but that also gave you a 1 year range membership.

    I took mine from a place that is no longer in business. Lot's of lies and misleading information. We were handed our certificates when walking into the range. The instructor said go shoot and then he left without watching.

    I paid with a C-Note and took it with Bill, the Owner's Son at Michigan Police Equipment Supply on Lansing Road, outside of Dimondale. It was held in Stanton, near his house.

    Unhappy I got what I paid for sort of?

    $150 + $20 in ammo [$170] TopGun (NO OC Allowed) in Taylor. Good overall & the two instructors even threw in some QCB point shooting. However lots of outdated and plain wrong info. in regards to CC/OC law.

    Had I known of Webtactical's existence I would have gone there for sure.

    I will always support pro OC/2A trainers before all others. I will be sending Mrs. G9OS & my sister to webtactical in the near future as I want the very best training for my loved ones.

    Scot 623 attended a MOC sponsored class to raise money for the Second Amendment March. It was in Shelby at HWD and instructed by Skip Coryell. A Few of us assisted and served as RSOs.

    Just be careful of who you take it from.

    An improperly instructed course could cost you your freedom and or lots of money and your gun rights.

    Hai rabbi ! Yes, he's still on the board. He told me once that he's there partly so we can have someone there who truly believes in the RKBA.

    My wife and I went to Wolverine Shooting Sports in Brownstown back in 2006 and paid $100 each.
    I always open carry one of my Kimber 1911 pistols everywhere I go. Usually in a paddle holster. Nothing fancy, but it works for me.

    Not all people who work at the big three tow the union line.Actualy you would be suprised at all the gun owners and hunters there are in the plants,in fact in at least 2 out of 5 plants I worked in they would ask for people to work doubles to cover anyone who wanted to go deer hunting during gun season.The Dems can claim they have the support of the unions and their money in order to make it look good,but it's the workers who vote whatever way they want.Besides,when you got a decent paying job with benefits,after 90 days you automaticaly become a member of the UAW.The unions tell you to vote Dem just like minorities tell you to vote Dem,because of the myth that they are for the average man and against big business and the rich.I think autoworkers,who work for big business,are smart enough to figure out whats happening and according to all the people I worked with and talked to on a regular basis,they knew what is going on!The Dems think we're stupid,we're not!

    Gibraltar Trade Center

    I took my last month at Gibraltar Trade Center 130.00 Class, Rounds, and Range Fee
    I had my own rounds, those who did not could buy them at the gun show.

    Class by Aim Stright, Two brothers, OK class but we had some one in there who wanted to talk marshal-arts and self-defense instead of Guns and Self-defense, ran the class over 2 hours with his constant questions.

    I got the feeling this was a new venture for the instructor, a former police officer and his brother, as they seemed a little unorginized

    Same with me, although I thoroughly enjoyed the class and would reccommend it to anyone. I had the female instructor which I thought did a phenomenal job and was very friendly.
