To anyone considering a CPL/CCW certified NRA class:
I recently had the opportunity to take a basic pistol course in compliance with the Michigan laws requiring such a class to obtain my CPL license. I was somewhat intimidated by the idea of an eight hour program in a classroom setting with a group of “gun nuts”. A friend of mine suggested I contact C.M. Novess III, a certified NRA instructor, and take the course through him. Mr. Novess responded that same afternoon, and set up a day at my convenience.
I am an avid hunter and shooter, and I am well versed in the handling and safety of all types of firearms. I was quite sure any course would be a mandatory re-hash of all my experience. I was surprised, to say the least about all of the things I didn’t know, and the most gracious manner that C.M. displayed in “reminding” me of all the facts. He is truly a gentleman of the highest order, and made me feel confident about all of the issues that come with the responsibility of gun ownership. His approach was both affable and intelligent, and made the experience a pleasurable and educational one.
The one on one style that C.M. uses made the course truly delightful, and gratifying. As a business owner with a very hectic schedule, I found the convenience of C.M. coming to my office an incredible plus. Except for the mandatory range time (a blast by the way, excuse the pun) I was able to be somewhat available to my staff during the day. I would rate the entire experience an eleven out of ten stars!
