My dad always taught me you get what you pay for. There are a number of instructors out there offering CWP classes. Some of which share the same goal of getting you in and out as fast a possible at the lowest price. We call them rubber stamp instructors. Carrying a gun comes with a level of responsibility you’ve never had before. One bad decision can land you behind bars for life. With stakes that high, do you think choosing the fastest, cheapest class is the best way to go?

We think not.

Take your CWP class from an academy with a track record of teaching as much about the lifestyle as the law. One that teaches as much about conflict avoidance as with shooting fundamentals. Before you enroll in that $50, rubber stamp CWP class, ask yourself if maybe spending a little bit more might actually be a better investment. After all, it really is only about as much as a large pizza.
