Rick Ector's Michigan Concealed Pistol License Class CCW CPL - Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017

Rick Ector's Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CPL) Class - Sunday, September 17th - Tuition $149.

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

Class DATE: Sunday, September 17th 2017 - 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 He does not rely upon the playing of out-of-date and boring DVDs as a substitute for quality and up-to-date instruction.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.
