Handgun Retention Class! A MUST for Every CCW/CPL Holder!

HANDGUN RETENTION CLASS
$ 75.00 Per Person

Wednesday, May 28th
6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

Tuesday, June 17th
6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.

 If you carry concealed with the intent of using a gun to defend yourself, the last thing you want to happen is for it to be taken away and used against you.

As a concealed carry weapon owner, you must know how to retain control of your gun at all times.

Learn to protect and keep your weapon safe and in your possession, while in its normal carry position, during an assault or physical confrontation, or after you have drawn it during an encounter.

Topics Covered:
- Mental Preparation & Awareness
- Universal Protection (Initial response to aggression)
- Holstered Weapon Retention
- Un-Holstered Weapon Retention
- Disengagement and Follow-up Considerations
- Alternative Force Options (OC Pepper Spray)
- Deadly Force Decision Making

Bring:
- If you have a weapon and a concealed holster please bring them with you to the class. NO LIVE AMMO PLEASE. If do you do not, we will supply the equipment and provide information you can use to properly select the appropriate rig for you.

Dress in comfortable street clothes and shoes for each of the classes. Please dress in the type of attire that you would normally wear while carrying your weapon.

While many firearm courses assume that presenting or firing a gun will instantly stop a threat, experience shows that there is a good chance you will end up grappling with your attacker. In fact, criminals often attack without warning, delivering a sudden sucker punch or taking you to the ground before you can deploy your weapon.

You do NOT need martial arts training for this course. The techniques are simple and effective, regardless of the size or strength of the attacker.

You must pre-register and pre-pay in order to attend.  

Register at www.DetroitArms.com

Class is taught by an active duty police officer, certified in Handgun & Weapon Retention techniques and training.   He is also a certified NRA and MCOLES instructor.

Buyer Beware – Not all CCW/CPL Classes Are The Same!

In case you were wondering…..
Each week we work hard to promote and fill our 1-Day 8-Hour MI CCW/CPL Class at Detroit Arms.

In doing so we routinely come up against other instructors who offer the Michigan CCW/CPL Class in a “compressed format” and sometimes for less money. People are attracted to these classes because they are able get in and out of the class in considerably less than 8 hours, sometimes without even shooting at the range.

Today we learned from a customer who came in to process a gun transfer, the he had taken a class from an instructor who did not follow the law as prescribed by the State of Michigan and that this instructor is currently being prosecuted by the State, and ALL OF HIS STUDENTS HAVE HAD THEIR APPLICATIONS FOR A CCW/CPL DENIED. He was one of them. Now, all these individuals need to pay for and take the class AGAIN, from a law abiding company in order to re-apply!

How much time and money have they saved now? ZERO.

If you have taken a Michigan CCW/CPL Class and that class was less then the STATE MANDATED 8 hour course, you’ve broken the law.  So has the instructor, in fact the instructor has committed a felony by signing their name to a certificate with your name on it.

Thinking of taking a class – take it from Detroit Arms. We offer THE BEST CLASS MONEY CAN BUY. We guarantee it. We do them every weekend – what are you waiting for?

Thank you to all of you who have trusted Detroit Arms to be your trainer of choice.  For those of you looking for a trainer, buyer beware.

Our Michigan Concealed Carry Class Cancellation Policy – Why We Have One

At Detroit Arms, we host a Michigan Concealed Carry class every Saturday and Sunday throughout the year.  We also host classes on select weekdays as well.

In order to properly serve our client base, we find it necessary to have a Class Cancellation Policy that requires our students to give us a 48 hour notice if they are unable to attend a class they have registered for.

We are more than happy to accommodate you in a future class if it becomes apparent that you are not going to be able to attend the class you had originally signed up for.

HOWEVER, students who are “no shows” or do not offer us the courtesy of a 48 hour notice, prior to the date of their class, to let us know they will not be in attendance, are subject to forfeiture of their tuition fee for the class.

Our classroom is limited to a maximum of 30 students per class.  The majority of those students are first time attendees, coming to our class so they may apply for their Michigan Concealed Carry License.

In addition, a number of our students are renewal students who are with us for a short time during the day – 3 or so hours to be exact, in order to fulfill the state requirement for renewing their existing license.

Some of the seats are occupied by former students who are sitting in for personal review – yes, any one of our students is able to come by for a refresher at ANY TIME, at no cost.

A number of our seats are occupied by family members of current class students – these individuals are former students who are now attending the class with a family member – they are there in a moral support capacity.  Yes, as a former student you may do this as well, at no charge, at any time.  Just let us know you wish to attend.

Any way you look at it, I can only comfortably accommodate a maximum of 30 people per day for our Michigan Concealed Carry class.

In order to provide our students with the absolute best class in the state of Michigan, and to ensure their comfort during the day, we close off registration for a class when we reach our 30 student limit.  We do this to ensure that we have a seat available for each and every student who has registered for our class.

When a student calls the day of the class to cancel, we have now lost the ability to sell that seat to another student who may have been interested in taking a class that day.  With proper notice, I would have been able to move your registration to another day and then may have offered your now vacant seat to another paying customer.  We are not “double dipping” as you are now occupying a seat in a future class.  My goal is to fill every seat, every day, when possible.

When you sign up for our Concealed Carry Class, you have purchased one of a limited number of available seats for this class.

Just as you do when you plan to attend a concert, or a sporting event, there are only a certain number of seats available to be filled.  If you don’t show for a Tigers game on date shown on your ticket, that ticket is not honored at a future date.  Our class is no different.

We understand that true emergencies happen – putting you in a position where you simply can not attend our class on your assigned date.   Unlike Kid Rock, the Detroit Lions, Red Wings and Tigers, we will do our best to accommodate those situations by offering you a seat in an upcoming class.

Therefore, before you consider not showing on the date you have committed to, please take into consideration all of the above.

Our students deserve the best experience possible.  Thank you for considering Detroit Arms for your Michigan Concealed Carry training.  We are honored to be of service.  Thank you.

As You Shop Around Town as a CCW/CPL Holder……

Certain businesses in Michigan have posted “No-Guns” signs indicating that persons lawfully licensed to carry concealed firearms for self defense are not welcome on their property or within their place of business.

Those are the places I don’t patronize.
