I had such a weird but great experience, that I just had to share! So I signed up for a four hour handgun & marksmanship class combined with a CCW class held at Ben Avery Shooting Range. The class was supposed to be more of a lecture/classroom type, with only a little bit of range time. I went to the range and asked the personnel to direct me to where the class was held. They pointed me in the direction of a private pistol range. For half of the class, I was under the assumption that I was in the right class, but turns out, there was one extra student in the class, ME. I had been directed to the wrong class. Turns out, I was directed to the defensive handgun and CCW qualification course with Rob Hart of Personal Protection Services! Even though I was in the wrong class, I was shocked, amazed, and impressed at how informative, fun, and beneficial this class was. Not only was Rob able to teach proper safety, holstering, and form to handgun shooting, he put you in real-life situations in which you would have to use a weapon in self-defense or in the defense of others. From single-man attacks, to multiple attackers, even hostage situations, this class gave a real sense of how self-defense should be approached. A few things really stood out to me: The first was that the instructor emphasized that this was a last resort and that when the opportunity presents itself, you should run and avoid any confrontation. Using a weapon in defense should be a last resort. The other thing that really stood out to me was the caution and respect that Rob taught and showed towards handling weapons. He was constantly calling for magazine and chamber checks, and constantly improving each student's form in order to achieve top safety qualifications. After completing the course, there was not one member of the class that did not have fun and walk away with more knowledge than they came. I highly recommend that anyone and everyone come and take this class from Rob. He will be able to teach you the skills of proper self-defense.
