USCCA -- COUNTERING THE MASS SHOOTER THREAT
147.00

THIS COURSE COVERS ALL THE TOPICS ADDRESSED IN THE TEXTBOOK -- Countering the Mass Shooter Threat, by Michael Martin. (TEXTBOOK INCLUDED in the cost of the course.)

In that book, the author analyzes data gathered from 48 mass shootings that have occurred since Columbine, to determine what can learned from these tragedies, including whether a reduction in magazine capacity or the banning of any class of firearm would have changed the outcome.

Martin also looks at whether “gun-free” zones figure into the planning of these mass murderers; whether victim response at any mass shooting has made a difference; and whether “universal background checks” or other proposals by gun control advocates stand a chance of stemming the current trajectory of these shootings. Martin summarizes this data with a comprehensive plan designed to eliminate the scourge of these shooters once and for all.

KSAFE Ballistics 101 and 102

DATES = TBD

 

CONTENT WILL INCLUDE INTERIOR, EXTERIOR, AND TERMINAL BALLISTICS.

The syllabus for this class is still in the works, but my intent is to cover all the variables of the equations used in ballistics, cover what is meant by interior, exterior, and terminal ballistics, and other topics.  Survey type course.  No tests...

I also have no clue how long this class might last.  My instinct says that what I WANT to cover would be an entire semester in a 100 level college course format.  Realistically though, a one-day class, 6 hours long, is likely all anyone could tolerate in one sitting.

 

KSAFE PRIVATE CLASSES

DATES = TBD

 

PRIVATE CLASS RATES FOR USCCA AND NRA CLASSES

First Student   $350

Each Additional Student   $100

A Maximum Class Size of 8 Students works well.   Class sizes of 9 to 12 can be accommodated, at $150 for each additional student.

The break-even point is the 5th student.   (Open classes are $150/student)   If you have a class size of 5 to 8, this option makes economic sense.   For class sizes of 1 to 4, this option makes privacy sense.  Private classes are more flexible for dates, and start-times, as well.   Any day of the week, and start times as late as 10AM.   Click the"I'M INTERESTED"  button at right, (or below on mobile devices) to contact me.

 

PRIVATE INSTRUCTION RATES

These are 2-hour blocks of private instruction time to work on whatever you would like.   Many students use this option to work with a new gun, to get more familiar with it.

Basic fee$147

Various firearms and amounts of ammo can be provided.   Click the"I'M INTERESTED"  button at right, to contact me, for more info.
