Q: Does Protective Shooting Concepts do private classes?

 

A: Scheduling a private class with Protective Shooting Concepts is easy - let us know where you are located and what you'd like to accomplish. All of the standard classes listed are available, however a certain amount of customization is workable: Revolver, Shotgun, and Kalashnikov programs are also possible.

Q: I've heard your take on Col. Cooper's "Four Rules" is a bit nontraditional. What gives?

 

A: My Cardinal Rules are the same thing as Col. Cooper's, just stated with less room for interpretation. They are as follows:

 

1. Verify the condition of your gun.

2. Avoid allowing your muzzle to cover anything that you're unwilling to shoot.

3. Keep your finger off the trigger and high alongside the gun until you're going to shoot.

4. Know your target, and consider your target's surroundings.

Q: Does Protective Shooting Concepts teach women how to shoot?

 

A: Of course! Women are welcome in all of our offerings, however if you're interested in a specialty women-only course, we can do that too.

Q: If I show up for one of your classes and fall apart, will you throw me out of the class?

 

A: Most likely no, but we always reserve that right. The only reason we would ever throw someone out of a class would be for a blatant disregard for safety or blatant disrespect for the coaches and/or the other shooters. Everything else we can work with. If you really blow it, we'll give you another chance to breathe and get yourself together and try again. If you really blow it a second time, we may have you run portions of the class dry or with a SIRT pistol. We may have you sit out and observe. Or, you may choose to go home - however a refund will not be forthcoming. Be honest about your skill level and you'll be fine. We will not hold up the class for remedial coaching.

Q: How do I host one of your classes?

 

A: Easy. Refer to this guide.

Q: I know you guys usually teach in Western Pennsylvania; where are you willing to travel to teach a class?

 

A: Generally (in addition to Pennsylvania) we are going to limit our classes to Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, and New Jersey. Some of these states have very strict laws regarding firearms, so potential hosts need to plan accordingly. We may consider traveling further in some special circumstances. We will no longer work within the borders of New York... probably.

  • We don't worry if a student can out-shoot us.
