Alaska CCW Class
« on: August 14, 2017, 01:45:02 am »
I and my wife did our Alaska Concealed Carry class this weekend.  It is not required to have a license to CC or open carry most places in AK.   We wanted to do a gun class together, and our anniversary is in a couple of weeks.  So this was my present from the wife. 

We took the class from Point Blank Firearms and Self Defense Training.  I was very happy with the training both in the classroom and on the range.  The lead trainer Donna Anthony is a fantastic teacher.  I hope that my wife will continue to follow the teaching that she got from Donna one on one at the range.  It made a huge difference in her shooting.  Andy, an investigator for the Alaska State Troopers, covered the legal side of things.  I am a lot more comfortable with where I can carry, and what my responsibilities are.

They are doing their active shooter class here in Homer in about a month.  I am hoping to be able to attend.  Simunitions with full gear running around a private school/church.

I was really happy with the instructors, and the course materials.  I would encourage anyone with the interest and the ability to take some training from Donna and her crew.

    My CCW classes have been hit and miss. I'm glad you found a good one.
    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.
