Rick Ector Gave A Speech on "Red Flag" Laws at Michigan's Second Amendment March Rally

Rick Ector Gave A Speech on "Red Flag" Laws at Michigan's Second Amendment March Rally on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2018

At the Michigan Second Amendment March on June 20th, 2018, Rick Ector gave a speech on the steps of the Capitol Building against the evils of "Red Flag" laws.

These laws deprive citizens of due process, as the persons named in a court order coult be the subject of a secret legal proceeding in which their rights to own or possess a firearm can be stripped away.

Law enforcement would then be able to execute a search of the person's home and seize all of his guns without any notice.

The "victim" then would need to prove that he is not a menace before his guns could be returned back to him.

Red Flag laws are evil.

Rick Ector's Detroit Michigan Area CPL CCW Concealed Carry Class - June 16th, 2018

Rick Ector's Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CPL) Class - Saturday, June 16th - Tuition $149 - 10am

We are pleased to announce our next Michigan Concealed Pistol License CCW/CPL Class!

Class DATE: Saturday, June 16th, 2018 - RSVP NOW

If you have a desire to qualify for a Concealed Pistol License (CPL), so that you will become safe, register for our next class.


Everyone claims to be the best. I am going to show you why we are the best.

Our classroom sizes are limited to ensure a proper learning environment. You will be comfortable asking questions that are most pertinent to your situation. We understand that being stuffed in a sardine can with 50 other students leaves much to be desired.

Our legal module is taught by a credible practicing criminal defense attorney. The legal module will NOT consist of an attorney - who never actually practiced law - lecturing on your duties, rights, and responsibilities under the law on a DVD.


Your safety and freedom deserve much better. Other providers, if they teach the law at all, only offer up their unprofessional and untested opinions. Our attorney is also a regular subject matter expert featured on the news and local talk shows.

I daily receive phone calls from students who took the $50 classes and short-changed themselves. The irony is that is that instead of calling their original trainer, they end up calling me. By this time, all I can do is refer them to competent counsel and hope that the amount of trouble they get into is minimized.
You have a choice: pay just a little more now for a superior class or pay a ton more later.


We provide one-on-one shooting supervision in the shooting booth. We understand that you need expert instruction on the safe operation of a pistol from a whisper away. Unlike the others, we do not have one instructor who watches five students on the range at the same time. We are right there with you each and every step along the way to ensure that you are safe while learning.

Finally, our Chief Instructor actually teaches the class. He does not rely upon the playing of out-of-date and boring DVDs as a substitute for quality and up-to-date instruction. Our training is a 100 percent live and entertaining presentation which ensure that you fully grasp and understand the material well after you leave the classroom. My students see for themselves how fast the GroupOn classes are over before we reach the half-way point of our class.

Our Chief instructor has been training citizens, such as yourself, for over ten years with a 100 percent safety record. We are especially adept at training first-time shooters, women, and seniors. We are not fly-by-night operators. We have seen many training providers come and go over the last decade.

Only quality Instructors have staying power. We are here for the long haul. So, if you ever have a need for follow-up, you know that you can find us - even if it is five years later.

If you want the best instruction, you have to be taught by the best. You deserve it, your family deserves, and your safety at home and out in the streets requires it. Don't be penny-wise and pound foolish with your safety. Go with the best. Me.

When my students call me, they are referring family members and friends to take our class. When graduates from other training classes call me, they were failed by their instructors and need serious legal help. Get it done right the first time.

Saturday, June 16th, 2018
Location: L.A.I.D. HQ
30305 Schoolcraft Ave.
Livonia, MI
10am Start
Tuition ($149)

Chief Firearm Instructor Rick Ector is a recognized expert in firearm safety and has been featured extensively in the national and local media: New York Times, Associated Press, UPI, USA Today, Fox News, NRAnews, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, National Public Radio, "Let It Rip," the Detroit Metro Times, Guns Digest, Tactical-Life, The Truth About Guns, The Politics Daily, Fox News Detroit, The Detroit News, and the Detroit Free Press.

Recent Awards and Honors Bestowed to our Chief Instructor include the following:

Do NOT Take Our Class If...

700 Metro-Detroit Women Empowered With FREE Shooting Lesson by Local Activists

Seven hundred (700) women who expressed an interest in learning about fundamental firearm safety and target shooting were recently given a free range safety briefing and a complimentary shooting lesson in metro-Detroit. The annual event - now in its seventh year - safely introduced all of the women participants to firearms on Sunday, May 20th at the Top Gun Shooting Range in Taylor, Michigan.

This annual event seeks to introduce women to firearms in a safe and supportive environment. The women were scheduled to participate in one of several range safety briefings in which basic firearm safety rules were taught along with training on shooting stances and elements of marksmanship.

After every group briefing, each woman was paired up with one vetted firearm instructor for a shooting session. The session consisted of loading a 9mm semi-automatic pistol with 20 rounds of ammunition which were then shot into a hanging paper target. Feedback and support was then given to every participant by her personal instructor.

This program was conceived by Rick Ector - a Detroit area gun rights advocate - seven years ago. One night while viewing the local news telecast for that evening, he saw a story about a woman who was murdered; her body was dumped in a vacant lot. The story haunted Ector as he pondered what could be done to help women better protect themselves. He came up with the idea of offering a free shooting lesson for women.

That first year only 50 women signed up and attended the program. Ector along with five fellow firearm instructors conducted the training. The next year 100 women signed up and the program continued to grow by leaps and bounds. Last year, 600 women were trained by the program which needed roughly 40 firearm instructors to help oversee the activity. This year's program needed 50 firearm trainers to safely train a record 700 women participants.

The firearm instructors who helped run this year's program are a diverse group. They are too numerous to list individually by name but the organization they represent are listed as the following: the National Rifle Association (NRA), the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA), Michigan Gun Owners (MGO), Michigan Open Carry (MOC), National African American Gun Association (NAAGA), and Legally Armed in Detroit (LAID). Many ancillary members also performed useful tasks to keep the event orderly and safe.

Sponsors also had a huge role in this massive training event. First, the Top Gun Range of Taylor graciously donated their facility for the day. Agila Ammunition donated 16,000 rounds of 9mm ammunition, Doug Holloway of ATEi donated the use of his firearms, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) donated gun locks, and NRA-ILA donated canvass tote bags.

In all, this year's firearm training event was a huge success by any measure. Of course, the most important metric was zero injuries, as safety is the most important component of an organized activity this large and complex. In the coming weeks, we will assess how well everything went and set program goals for next year! We may "shoot" for 1,000 women to be trained next year.
