    CCW Class More Than Worthwhile

    I can’t think of 8 hours in recent memory more well-spent than yesterday. A few weeks back, I mentioned John Hansen’s CCW Class.

    John is in Law Enforcement, so he offers a great perspective. He has a down-to-earth, easygoing style that makes the material interesting. Students were 100% comfortable asking questions in the classroom. His knowledge of the material presented was clearly current, and accompanied by the appropriate references. Training materials were complete and well-organized. His experience allowed for lots of anecdotal evidence to reiterate his points, without embellishment or bravado. The range portion had folks at all levels of expertise - John kept range procedures firm, yet relaxed enough that new shooters were not uncomfortable or intimidated.

    Topics covered included firearms safety, legal issues, use of force, concealment laws, threat analysis, conflict resolution, home defense planning, non-lethal defense, and shooting fundamentals. The course was approximately 8 hours, with roughly 2 hours spent at the range. Students have to pass a written test, as well as a practical shooting test.

    John does more than just cover the mandatory material, though - he fingerprints you and assists everyone in filling out their CCW application. Literally, when you leave that class, all you have to do is get a money order or cashier’s check for the DPS fee ($60), put postage on the envelope, and send it in. Best of all - this class will run you 40 bucks. I haven’t seen one for that price anywhere. This is one of those rare cases where you get more than what you pay for.

    Seriously, I would recommend this class to anyone who has even the faintest interest in firearms. Whether you are interested in a CCW Permit or not, the information presented in this class is interesting and important. Ladies - fear not. There were a couple of gals in our class, and I think John went out of his way to make them feel comfortable and they were considered equal members of the class.

    If you have ever considered taking a CCW Class - or not - DO IT! Check out John’s site Black Wolf Defense for FAQ’s, schedules, info and more.
