If you are looking for a great handgun class in the MO/KS, I would recommend taking this class or one of the many others offered by Bill.
I have taken three handgun classes with Bill including my CCW class and recommended him to my customers and everyone has been very satisfied.
Keep up the great work Bill.

Ths is being put on by a different Company and an independant Instructor will be teaching this class and the Carbine class. SRT Group is just sponsoring it.
What kind of turnout you have for these and the rifle class? Anymore coming up?
Generally between 6 - 12 students. Restricted to maximum 12 though from all over, Military, Law Enforcement and civilians, not only from MO.
Sounds good. The rifle class looked like a real good/learning experience and you get to shoot that much. I am in St Joe so I guess I would not be taking advantage of all that Total has to offer if I did not take the class. Now to convince the wife of this.
