We recently held a combined Wisconsin/Utah concealed carry class at the Compound. That was an overwhelming success and told us there are a lot of people out there that are concerned about personal protection. Because a lot of people called us to say they couldn't make a Saturday class, we scheduled a new class for December 4th, a Sunday. You will have a choice of opting for Wisconsin only, Utah only or the combination of the two. Remember, if you want a Utah permit, you will have to show proof of a Wisconsin permit first (a change in Utah's law that took place on November 1, 2011). Our class will include lunch for both and fingerprinting if you're taking the Utah class.
If you opt for either class, they are $85 each, Wisconsin or Utah. If you want both certifications, it's $110.00. Again, these prices include lunch and fingerprint service for the Utah class. Visit the events section on this site to learn more or to pre-register and sign up. These classes will run from 9am until 2pm. You'll have time to get home and watch the Packer game if you want, or hang out with us and watch it on our big screen TV while lounging in our showroom. We will not cut the class time down just because the state says we don't have to offer a 4 hour class. Our instructor is a professional and he will not remove important information or demonstrations from the class just to reduce class time. That is not ethical in his mind. He wants to assure you that you will be properly instructed in the safe handling of your firearm and that you were instructed on the legal issues surrounding the carry and use of a weapon. If you're looking for a budget class just to get a permit in your hands, you probably shouldn't be carrying in the first place. We will teach you safe and proper handling of your weapon and the legal responsibilities that come with carrying a weapon.
In the future, we plan to offer some group excursions to local shooting ranges for some skill building and fun. In the spring, we can even offer some excursions to some outdoor ranges. It's a lot more fun going with a group and some new permit holders may be intimidated or afraid of range time on their own. We'll make that experience an enjoyable one while getting you some valuable practice. One of our Road Guardian members even suggested some additonal personal protection instruction or classes and we're looking into that as well. Could you disarm somebody with a gun or knife or protect yourself from an assailant if you didn't have a weapon of your own? These are important things to consider. What do you think about these types of classes?
We want Road Guardians to be a place you can feel welcome at, receive valuable training and education (it doesn't all have to be motorcycle related), purchase some biker friendly accessories and maybe get some updates or repair services done on your motorcycle. We're building a motorcycle community within the motorcycle community where everyone is welcome. We don't care what you ride. If you're on two or three wheels, you're part of our expanding family. Come down, check out the Compound and watch for upcoming classes, instruction workshops, tech tips and more.
