Due to near fatal health problems in 2018, I not only retired from the Government, but also from all firearms instructing. For my students, and for ME!

I am already in the re-certification process and with 10 years the first version of the business, I’m hoping Metro will see that and push me right through. My students have told me how much the CCW bureau likes the way I organize the paperwork for my students, and how I educate them on everything they need to do. I hope my reputation precedes me.

During this time, if you are interested in any class, CCW or otherwise, give me a call at 702-275-1625

I am located in Las Vegas, Nevada and am a Multi-Certified NRA & CFP/CCW Instructor certified with both the State of Nevada and the State of Utah.  I have been certified for both Nevada and Utah for over 10 years and have trained over 5000 people including active and retired military, law enforcement, small-business owners, doctors, married couples, young folks, senior citizens, and the everyday person like you and me.

My CFP classes exceed both Nevada & Utah State mandates for content and curriculum.

Class and Costs information is INACCURATE! Call me if you have any questions, my website needs to be updated.

My Tactics and Training portion shows the Care, Control and Custody of a defensive firearm, including essential information on defensive ammunition, how to chamber ammunition and how to lock to slide back with ease (most people don’t know how to do this correctly).

In the Firearms and the Law portion, we go through the Five Essential Rules of Concealed Carry (really the first five commandments), the Force Continuum and the Color Code of Mental Awareness. We also go through no less than nine Force / No-Force – Shoot / No-Shoot videos where I stop the video and You Make the Call!

Folks that have gone through my class always have very nice things to say about my class, what I include, what I do, and most importantly, my teaching method. I DO NOT have a ‘drill Sergeant’ attitude and reinforce good learning with a positive experience and information.

One man who took my class and has been carrying for over 30 years said it best, “Not so much the curriculum or material (I’ve seen it all), but the instructing by Mr. Rick Cross is second to none!”

I’m a member of Frontsight Firearms Training Institute and have taken classes with Suarez International. I try to take no less than four classes per year from Frontsight or another professional school and the knowledge I get from them, I pass onto my students.
