Great class for those with lots or little firearms experience. Explained things like types of firearms and ammunition, sale and transportation rules, and recaps basic safety procedures. Great hands on experience learning how to hold and use firearms properly. Excellent staff to answer all questions and a low stress/pressure environment to learn the material.
Start here to learn how to be safe when handling a firearm. I took this course in June of 2015 and realize two years later, that the principals taught are so relevant and essential to everyday carry. Besides handling a loaded firearm, many more subjects are covered in this class that pertain to your safety, such as types of attacks, (anticipated vs. unanticipated), types of adversaries, (trained vs. untrained), creating a reactionary gap, disparity of force, choosing the correct tool, de-escalation, angle of egress, and more!
These lessons become ingrained into your thinking when you learn form the expert teachers and staff at CDI. Nothing is overlooked or left to chance in these classes. When you become safe carrying your firearm, those around you become safer as well. Take the whole range of Defensive Pistol classes at CDI, as I have since, and you will know that you have done your best to educate yourself and become a responsible, armed, law abiding, citizen.
