Concealed Carry Class for August 20th Posted. Sign up now while you can!

Sign up for the North Carolina Concealed Carry course today with S.A.F.T. Academy.

Had an incredible Concealed Carry class today. My students were the Stanly County District Attorney's office. It's quite an honor when the prosecution asks you to teach their course for them.. at least it was for me. It was a great day. We had great students, lots of fun, and best of all we graduated nine new concealed carry holders here in Stanly County. And after about 9.5 hours of class, they asked for more.. these guys were really a glutton for punishment! Looks like we're moving on to teaching advanced pistol for them next! I can't wait to see them all in class again. Thanks very much to a great class for making the day enjoyable!

Ok guys and gals, it's that time. Thanks to all of you, I was number 1 in the state a few years ago, and one of the top fundraisers in the entire country for the MDA fundraising campaign.
I'd absolutely LOVE the chance to do that again. They've given me a ridiculously easy goal to reach, $3,200. (Last time we did over 10K.)
1 dollar is just as welcome as 100. I'd appreciate ANY help and support you can get to help me raise money for these kids! Here's the link!…

Thanks to the awesome students from this weekend's class and thanks for some of the amazing reviews you guys left. You really are too kind! (and I plan to totally steal some of those to use as testimonials on the web site!)

Gun Control in Chicago - How's that working out for ya?

Some of the strictest gun laws in the nation and it does nothing to curb violence. Proof once again that it's PEOPLE you need to legislate, not guns.…/ct-for-second-straight-week…

 For the second straight weekend, more than 50 people were shot across Chicago, including a 10-year-old girl grazed in the neck in Woodlawn on Sunday afternoon.

And this is why you DON'T teach gun safety indoors in the home, or with a loaded firearm. Either use some sense, or use an instructor... we're cheaper than the alternatives.…/dad-teaches-daughter-about-gun-safety…/

We've got three new class dates on the website for NC Concealed Carry, and NRA Basic Pistol Safety. Visit the site and click on Course Calendar to sign up if you were one of the students waiting on a class!

"In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid... the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields."
~Lt. Colonel John McCrae, 1915

"We cherish too, the Poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led,
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies."
~Moina Michael

In response to the article written by "Professor" John Traphagan on the theory that "Americans do not seem to be able to handle gun ownership in a way that permits maintenance of a civil society."

You, sir, cite incidents such as the Colorado theater shooting, a 3-yr old with a gun killing his father in Indiana, and nine people killed in a fight between biker gangs in Waco.

The mere fact that you have to resort to using a biker-gang fight, and a homicidal sociopath as evidenc...

As a gun owner and as a human being I’m quite irked at the newest round of locations adopting policies preventing legal carry of firearms. However, I’m not pissed at the business owners or the corporate offices. I’m pissed at … Continue reading →
Deputies say a man saw another man walk into a Walmart with a gun under his coat, so he tackled him. It turned out the man had a permit for the gun.
