Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

How long have you been teaching?

I started teaching firearms back in 1993 and started Pistol & Rifle Training in 2016.

Where do you teach?

I use the range facilities at Ben Avery Shooting Facility (BASF).

I will come to you and provide training for you or your group within reasonable travel distances and restrictions.

I usually use Practical Pistol Ranges B, E & F for classes.

Do you do custom training?

Yes, I will customize training to fit the needs of the student or the groups goals.

Do you supply or rent guns?

Not usually. I will on prior arrangement allow students to use one of my firearms for the range activities or to test fire a specific gun. They are expected to provide appropriate ammunition. I don’t charge fees for the use but it is by prior arrangement ONLY.

What calibers do you normally work in?

I use safe, plastic training ammunition for students during handling and initial shooting exercises. 

I have the following calibers available:

  • .22LR
  • .380 ACP
  • 9MM
  • .38 Special
  • .45 ACP
  • .223/5.56 

Students can purchase their own simulated training ammo and bring to class.

I recommend:

  • A-Zoom
  • ST Action Pro
  • Magpul
  • Tipton
  • Saf-T-Trainers (I use these.)


What forms of payment do you accept?

I can accept cash or credit card. Due to the nature of “Online” classes, I have to have payment in advance for classes, you will receive an invoice via PayPal for payment.

Why PayPal Invoicing?

Unfortunately credit card transactions for firearms related activities are unpopular with banking services. Currently, PayPal is allowing me to use their service.
