We Can't Afford to Wait on the Attack



The 4 A's of Survival


Host a Class



I recently took an NRA class to get my Concealed Weapons Permit. I had been wanting to take this course for years, but didn't want to sit in a room with a bunch of people I didn't know. I was in central Florida recently and ran into Bill Ward, he gave me his business card and told me he would be glad to drive to Jacksonville and give the class to me, my wife, and a few friends, in "MY HOME". "ARE YOU KIDDING ME" I thought, Who does this ?, How convenient !, Problem solved !     When Bill came to our home he was very professional, with a great easy going personality. Bill was well prepared and very knowledgeable. He willingly stopped the presentation many times to answer all of our questions( we had plenty). Bill had brought several handguns, both semi-auto and revolver, which was great since my wife and our neighbor didn't know much about either. Bill was very helpful with the necessary forms we needed to fill out and also notarized them.I would highly recommend Bill Ward to anyone wanting to take this course.  Thanks again Bill,  Danny C., Jacksonville                                        

I recently attended a Concealed Weapons course given by Bill Ward.  The class was very informative and covered  all aspects of gun ownership.  By the end of the class I had a solid working knowledge of the laws pertaining to carrying a concealed weapon, how to properly care for and handle my gun.

If you have zero experience with firearms Bill will get you where you need to be so that you'll feel comfortable and knowledgeable in handling and using firearms. If you have experience with firearms, it doesn't matter, you'll still learn in this class.  Rick H., Palm Coast.


Safety Rules

1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
This is the primary rule of gun safety. A safe direction means that the gun is pointed so that even if it were to go off it would not cause injury or damage. The key to this rule is to control where the muzzle or front end of the barrel is pointed at all times. Common sense dictates the safest direction, depending on different circumstances.

2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
When holding a gun, rest your finger on the trigger guard or along the side of the gun. Until you are actually ready to fire, do not touch the trigger.

3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
Whenever you pick up a gun, immediately engage the safety device if possible, and, if the gun has a magazine, remove it before opening the action and looking into the chamber(s) which should be clear of ammunition. If you do not know how to open the action or inspect the chamber(s), leave the gun alone and get help from someone who does.

Shooting Advice

Some words to the wise. Shooting Advice from various Concealed Carry Instructors. If you own a gun, you will appreciate this. If not, you should get one and learn how to use it:

A: Guns have only two enemies: rust and politicians.

B: Its always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

C: Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

D: Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.

E: Never say "I've got a gun." If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off. (I prefer the sound of a slug being chambered when you cock a shotgun)

F: The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

G: The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win - cheat if necessary.

H: Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets . . . You may get killed with your own gun, but he'll have to beat you to death with it, cause it'll be empty.
If you're in a gun fight:
1. If you're not shooting, you should be loading.
2. If you're not loading, you should be moving,
3. If you're not moving', you're dead.

J: In a life and death situation, do something . . . It may be wrong, but do something!

K: If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about? (I call it being prepared)

L: You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much a universal language. AMEN!

M: You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.
