Elite Armed Defender _ March 2, 2014

Well, it has been a long cold winter, and getting outdoors to practice shooting skills has been tough.  But now as we round the corner to spring, I hope all of you find the time to get in some practice at the range.  Our previous CCW class in January at Woodbury’s in Jeffersonville was a success as some hardy souls braved the cold on the range to qualify.  We have one CCW class scheduled for March at the moment, and we will know soon if we are scheduling another for this month.  Please keep watching for future issues of The Armed Defender for up to date details.  As always, feel free to call me at 937-725-3104, or email me at steve@elitearmeddefense.com if you have any questions about a class schedule or anything.

The Armed Defender is published “as needed” to keep you updated on our current class schedules and any other information necessary to keep you informed.  Please feel free to forward this email to anyone who be interested.


CCW (concealed carry) Class!
We have scheduled an Ohio CCW Class for Saturday, March 29, 2014 at Woodbury Outfitters in Jeffersonville, Ohio.  This is a 1 day class, from 8 am to 8 pm.  We will begin class at 8 am and then about mid-day we will go to the range and then finish up class back at the store.
See left margin for details.

Contact me (Steve Preston) anytime at 937-725-3104, or email me at steve@elitearmeddefense.com with any questions about any class we offer.

Our Course Catalog is listed below in this newsletter.  If you require any further info about what we offer, please contact me.  From time to time, I have had questions about classes scheduling.  I will answer some of these questions here.
Q. Are all of your classes 1 day classes?
A. No.  We have done, and will do, 2 day classes as scheduling requires.  I do 1 day classes often because I have heard many times that my students like to get it done all in 1 day.  That way, the entire weekend is not taken up.
Q.  How can we schedule a multiple day class if none are scheduled?
A.  If there are no multiple day classes currently scheduled, you can gather a few people who want 2 or more day classes and we can schedule it.  Or, you can let me know what you are interested in and I may have others on the list that want the same, and we can make it happen.
Q.  Do you only do weekend classes?
A.  No.  I will fit any schedule given enough time to schedule it.  I have done classes that have spanned over 3-4 days, and over a few weeks.  I have done evening classes through the week, and even some weekday classes.  Whatever your needs, we can probably fit your schedule.
Q.  Do we only offer CCW training?
A.  No.  We offer CCW training, First Step Pistol Orientation, Basics of personal Protection in The Home, NRA Basic Pistol Course, and Advanced Handgun Training.  We are always adding to our Course catalog and will keep you informed of all new class offerings as they become available.
