Know Your Instructor or Pay the Price

The firearm training industry has a lot of quality people and some that are less than quality.  Take example this news story below where a law enforcement officers was forced to resign but is suspected of continuing to teach Ohio CCW classes (http://www.wfmj.com/story/39974773/exclusive-hundreds-of-ccw-permits-suspended-in-mahoning-valley).  Normally you would think to yourself if they are a current or former police officer they know the law and probably have a lot of good stories to teach you.

Think again!

Just because someone says they are a police officer, former military special forces, or an NRA instructor doesn’t mean they are allowed to teach your CCW course.  Many states have specific course requirements for a CCW course and if the course does not follow it then your application could be turned down or worse you could receive a letter from the police telling you that your CCW license is no longer valid meaning you have to stop carrying until you clear up the problems with your license.

For any class you are looking into take we suggest the following:

A little due dilligence on your part can save you a lot of hassle down the road by attending the wrong training class.
