By limiting the class size to 6 students. I have time to go over all aspects of gun safety,storage and use.





Our training classes were introduced as a result of the SB-281 that went into effect 10/01/2013 . We started training to help responsible residents of Maryland. Most importantly to continue to exercise their second amendment rights by obtaining the MD HQL and Wear and Carry permit . We also do NRA Basic Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home. I wanted to not only satisfy the requirements of the law, but also train people to be better gun owners.  I believe training gun owners to be safe and responsible will help to stall the anti-gun advocates. Please check our events calendar for upcoming classes.

There are hotel rooms available at the marina where classes are held for two day classes. To book a room please visit
