Last Minute CCW Class Notes
Address of the classroom is 9680 W. Tropicana avenue in Las Vegas, 89147. Name of the facility is Encore Executive Suites.
It’s about a half-mile up from Ft. Apache & Tropicana on the right side of the street in the second row of office buildings.
It’s the only office complex before you get to the next traffic light and you really can’t miss the complex.
I’ll be parked in front of the building and you’ll see my either my red Pathfinder (with large roof rack) or my CCW F-150 Pickup
Doors are locked on Weekends! When you get there, call or text me (if I don’t see you first) so I can let you in.
Classroom Start & End Times
Class starts promptly at 9am, please arrive at 8:45am. This gives you time to get a cup of coffee, find out where the bathrooms are, etc.
Account for traffic and do your best not to be too late. We can’t wait too long after 9am to start the class.
There is so much information to go through and we will be tight for time all throughout the day.
Breakfast / Lunch / Snacks
Eating in the conference room is just fine, please bring anything you like.
We do a working lunch, you can either bring a lunch (I typically do) or go get one to-go. There is a refrigerator onsite.
There is a pizza/sandwich/salad joint (real good) within walking distance and other fast foods close by including and In and Out.
If you go out to get a lunch, please get it to-go and eat it in the classroom. As mentioned, we will be tight for time throughout the day.
Coffee and bottled water are provided free during the day.
Guns & Ammo
DO bring your gun(s) into the class! If you have a holster (we won’t be drawing from a holster at the range) bring that along as well!
If you bring ammo into the classroom, I have a lockbox to secure it. In a training environment, ammo must be secured.
You don’t need to bring a cleaning kit. We won’t have enough time to clean guns but I will point out the most important parts of gun cleaning.
You will receive a 90-minute DVD in class with me cleaning a couple of guns and all aspects of it.
Payment of class fee’s
Cash or check is preferred. I typically do not have change. For latest costs and fees, go here
I can also take a debit/credit card through Square. There is a 3% fee for using a card.
I am a Sabre Defense Instructor and sell Sabre Defense Spray (Gel) in class; I sell them at cost. They are $10 in class ($5 less than anywhere else). The sale of Pepper Gel is only for my students. You will learn in class a less-lethal tool is good to carry since not every problem is a gun problem. If you don’t already carry a ‘less-lethal’ tool, get one in class! I never strap my gun on without having a less-lethal option available. I should have plenty if you would like to buy a canister for a loved one.
We qualify at Discount Firearms & Ammo located at 3084 S. Highland Dr. in Las Vegas, 89109
Range fees are $10 dollars and includes a target, hearing, and eye protection. If you wear prescription eye-classes, they have eye protection that will go over them.
You will need a picture ID for the range, be sure you don’t forget it when you leave.
For the ladies and really everyone, no open-toe shoes. It’s also a good idea to have on a full-coverage shirt, meaning no halter or tank tops. If an ejected shell hits your skin, it will burn you.
You will need 30 rounds of ammunition for the live fire qualification. The range sells ammunition if you need it.
