About Chuck

I am a West Michigander who has been interested in firearms and training for over 30 years. I am a certified Concealed Pistol License Instructor through the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners (MCRGO). I started CPL616 because I like helping new shooters safely enjoy firearm use..  I find it satisfying to help people in the process of gaining their CPL and joining the men and women who have decided that they are their family’s first line of defense.”

Chuck was a fine CPL instructor. He was able to combine a strong knowledge of the law with a down to earth teaching method. As someone who had never shot a handgun before, I felt very comfortable in his class and after his instruction was able to hit the target with ease’
