$99 for a Level 1 Tactical Concealed-Carry Class ($200 Value)
This class helps participants build on their Concealed Pistol License training with more advanced tactical knowledge. During the action-packed, four-hour course, an NRA-certified firearms instructor keeps students out of the classroom and on the move as they learn how to properly draw and shoot their weapon while advancing, retreating, and moving laterally and diagonally. The instructor also covers shooting from different postures, multiple-target acquisition, and weapon retention in the guise of real-world scenarios. After a period practicing weapon takeaway, hand-to-hand combat, and shooting from cover, the class ends with a review of situational awareness, de-escalation techniques, and general combat mindset.
The company maintains a training guarantee—if students feel unprepared for self-defense after the class, they will receive a full refund. Most classes take place from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday. Check out the schedule and FAQs.

The instructors at Focus First Firearms Training, LLC don't have to brag about their skills—they can let their resumes do it for them. After all, they're made up of NRA-certified firearms instructors, IALEFI members, IDPA and IPSC competitive shooters, IDPA-certified range-safety officers, and even certified martial-arts instructors.
Using live ammunition, students hone their marksmanship and practice proper drawing techniques, shooting on the move, and shooting from cover. Close-quarter live-fire drills and hand-to-hand combat are regularly practiced on private fields, and instructors discuss different marksmanship techniques for shotguns, rifles, and pistols during advanced classes on tactics and weapons. Classes are held at different locations and employ a martial-arts dojo for physical skills and private live-fire courses for tactics lessons. The concealed-pistol-license courses comply with the State of Michigan requirement under Section 5J of 1927 Public Act 372.
