Obtaining your CPL/CCW does not guarantee you will never become the victim of a violent crime but it does keep you from becoming a “Helpless” victim.  You are your own first responder, and when seconds count, the police are minutes away!

Who am I?

My name is Karl Kessler.  I am an average American with a love for firearms and a passion for the Second Amendment!  Like you, I found myself trying to choose a CPL training class and settled on one of the cheapest CPL classes I could find.  That was a big mistake! While my instructors were both Police officers and very knowledgeable, they were bound by their association to keep within the guidelines of that association’s training regiment.  I left that class with more questions than answers and spent the next few months looking for those answers.  

I realized the need for CPL/CCW insurance early and bought a plan from the USCCA and some time later the USCCA began to offer their own CPL training which seems like a no-brainer. They are 100% geared towards concealed carrier permit holders and their course reflects that and allows me the flexibility to add to the curriculum where I feel it necessary.  I finally decided to partner with the USCCA and become an instructor and my goal is to make sure NO student ever leaves my class confused and questioning what the laws are in Michigan, leaving them vulnerable to legal troubles.

My class is NOT “Tacti-cool”! You won’t learn how to kick down doors and clear rooms.  It is my job to teach you conflict avoidance through situational awareness, basic handgun skills, and most importantly, how to stay out of prison if you ever have to brandish or fire your gun in self defense! I also aim to provide you the most comprehensive CPL training possible!

Hope to see you soon in one of my upcoming CPL classes!
