Craig is a great instructor. I did the CCW class, He provided everything needed to complete the class including, Eye and Ear Protection, Ammo and Firearm as well. You will have to bring additional funds for Range fees and Lunch, other then that Craig takes care of it all. Great Class, I highly recommend Las Vegas Firearm Training.Jorge C. 9/10/2022
Took the eight hour Nevada CCW class this past Saturday. Instructor Craig was well prepared and professional plus, he has the ability to set everyone at ease. That is no small task considering the subject matter. It was a pleasure hearing of his personal experiences relating to concealed carry issues. The class had 10 students which meant it went a bit long. That was not an issue since we all wanted the best instruction possible.
Craig then met us at the local range and proceeded to offer personal instruction and oversight to each of us. That can be a stressful experience but he managed to set us all at ease. We then met back at the classroom to complete our written exam. I would highly recommend this class, this company, and Craig to anyone seeking out a place to receive quality CCW training. I've been around firearms and professional firearms trainers since 1980 and this course taught me several new techniques that I will carry forward with me. Highly recommended.
Excellent training/class. Craig is top-notch with his CCW COURSE. If you're looking to get your CCW PERMIT, I recommend going to LAS VEGAS FIREARMS TRAINING. Craig is really laidback, easygoing, informative, knowledgeable, a little bit funny(LoL) and just a cool dude. A real Stress-Free environment. Go check him out, you won't be disappointed... Big Thx, CRAIG.Fred B. 3/13/2022
I just finished taking Craig's CCW class. The class was great. There was a ton of material covered in eight hours but the Instructor Craig made it informative yet interesting and covered what we needed to know. The nine students in my class ranged from a former East Coast Law Enforcement Officer to a sweet middle aged Lady who was inexperienced in handling firearms, yet Craig gave each student individual, unhurried and helpful guidance without the slightest hint of impatience or pressure. Yes, I would recommend Craig to anyone no matter what their firearm experience level is. Thank you Craig.John D. 12/20/2021
I took this class in June and Craig was absolutely phenomenal. The class was knowledgable but not overwhelming. Craig made sure to answer all questions throughout the class and provided detailed responses. We had a small break each hour which helped the 8 hour class go by faster. I was nervous to take this class but I'm so glad I did!Jessica N. 7/13/2021
I don't know why Craig doesn't have more Yelp reviews because he is an excellent CCW instructor! His demeanor calms the energy in the room while discussing the importance of responsible Gun ownership. This is especially important for students that may be first time Gun owners (there were 2 in my class) and are feeling nervous etc because I've been there before. The classroom isn't very big, so when Craig is sharing important updates on gun laws or giving personal accounts of what can go wrong if you mishandle firearms, you're fully engaged. There's no room for you to be hiding in the back and playing on your phone.
The day starts at 8am and instruction goes to about 10:30am - 11:00am. From there you will drive to The Shooting Center on Trop & Dean Martin for the shooting portion. Once everyone has completed their qualification, you will then have a little over an hour for lunch before you reconvene at the classroom for the 2nd part of class followed by the test. Most CCW classes either make you qualify in the beginning or at the end. I liked that it helped to break up the day. If you've never taken a CCW course before, & maybe feeling a bit nervous/apprehensive on where to go, then Craig is your guy!
Great course! Material covered clearly and concisely. Craig kept a good pace and kept all of us interested while educating us both on the required class material and on the ethics of carrying concealed.
I have CCW permits in two other states and have taken several CCW and handgun training courses. Craig taught me some things that I didn't know after 30 years of shooting. He was able to teach this old dog some new tricks!
The day currently starts with classroom instruction at 8. At about 10:30 you drive to the indoor range nearby, the Las Vegas Shooting Center, and other students will be able to give you a ride if you don't have your own car. You shoot your pistol or Craig's .22 target pistol for the qualification (30 rounds, 70% required, max distance 21 feet). The range session costs about $13, so plan on having a bit of money or a credit card with you. After a lunch break (bring your lunch to the range or have some money for the nearby In-And-Out Burger), you return to the classroom around 1PM and finish up with the exam at about 5-5:30.
It was a great learning experience, and Craig kept us all engaged, answering our questions gracefully as he taught.
Most of the students in the class I took were women. They all looked like they had a great time, participated a lot with asking questions, became much more comfortable with firearms, and I think felt like they took a big step forward in their ability to protect themselves.
Got my CCW with Craig through his one on one class. Very informative and enjoyed the pace of the class, even if it cost a little bit more than the group classes. Craig was very informed about NRS when it comes to carrying a firearm in Nevada, open and concealed. Thankfully, a friends referred me to him. Take any of his classes, group or one on one - you won't be sorry. I've already referred several people to him.Heather R. 11/12/2019
What an AWESOME guy! Craig came to my house at 8am to teach me everything about firearms, laws, cleaning, handling etc. The course was so easy to follow and his PowerPoint presentation was great! Even showed real life pictures of what could happen if people are careless with their firearm. I am a first time gun owner and I learned SO much! Craig shares great stories too, feel like ive known him for years. We went to the shooting range after to complete the course and he helped me with posture and techniques. Nailed it! I highly recommend having Craig teach you about firearms, even if you think you know everything and taking your CCW class with him! THANK YOU for a great CCW course!!!! Highly recommended!!!!Vee T. 12/09/2018
They put on a great training class! It was thorough and professional. They covered all the elements in a clear and concise manner. I appreciated that they did not take any short cuts and made certain we were properly trainer. We plan on using them in the future for more advance courses.
Well that was quick and painless! Visiting family in LV and wanted to get my CCW renewed. Referred to Craig by some members of the law enforcement & private security that I know. Craig got me hooked up super quick and on short notice. Great guy, and really loves what he does. Obviously I'd recommend everyone to get their CCW and if you are in Nevada well, might as well have Craig get you squared away.Jay M. 9/04/2018
Craig is the best firearms instructor. Not only is his class super informative I also learned the safe and proper way to handle a firearm. He has lots of experience and is able to answer any questions that arise. Super easy to deal with and made getting my CCW easy and informative!Alex L. 9/04/2018
I took LV Firearms Training class for my renewal and learned more in this class than in my original CCW class, since then I've referred atleast 6 people to take the full CCW class and they all have said that they loved it! My wife is getting ready to get her CCW and she will only go to this place. Thanks!Maxx B. 9/04/2018
