Concealed Pistol License (CPL) Classes
At The Gun Cage, we try to provide an all around scope of services. We now offer CPL classes taught by an experienced NRA Certified Instructor for Certified Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home. Upon completion of this course, you will receive the training requirement for a Michigan CPL License.
The Gun Cage also offers refresher classes for expired CPL holders that would like to renew their license for $50.00. According to MCL 28.425l(7):
“The educational requirements under section 5b(7)(c) for an applicant who is applying for a renewal of a license under this act are waived except that the applicant shall certify that he or she has completed at least 3 hours’ review of the training described under section 5b(7)(c) and has had at least 1 hour of firing range time in the 6 months immediately preceding the subsequent application.”
This means that you do not need to retake the entire course or even take a formal review of the legal portion of the training for your renewal. However, we recommend that CPL renewal applicants take the time to sit through the legal portion of a CPL class prior to renewal. Since we are all tasked with keeping up on changes to Michigan law, it is better to rely on a competent professional trainer for your review, and perhaps supplement that session with some “homework,” than to simply do three hours of self-study.
About The Class
- Price of CPL Class: $100.00 (NRA Raised book prices 10 dollars)
- Shooting Range Cost: $25.00
- Class Deposit: $50.00
- Start Time 8:15 a.m.
Schedule: Class starts at 9:00 a.m., with a break for lunch around noon. Breakfast & Lunch is provided by the instruction. Around 2:30, the class goes out to the shooting range. Individuals need 100 rounds to shoot – these need to be full metal jacket rounds or the range will not let you practice. Ammo is available to purchase at The Gun Cage. If you do not have a firearm, the instructor will lend one out at no charge. Once everything is done at the range, the class comes back and takes the test to receive your certificate. Class goes by quickly, and we are able to have a lot of fun while maintaining a level or seriousness at the same time.
We had a great class on this Saturday the 28 of Jan. 2017, everyone passed with flying colors with no injuries. I welcome my new friends – thank you for the great day.
