CPL training excellence

I took a 1on1 class with Chuck yesterday and had a great time. I found him to be professional, knowledgeable, friendly and very patient when I would make the same mistake over and over during the shooting portion of the class. I highly recommend CPL616.
Thank You Chuck.

Everything you want in a CPL class!

Chuck was professional through the class and training. He keeps the class informative, but humorous enough to stay interesting. On the range he is a stickler for safety and is always ready to give a helpful cue to improve your shooting. He is great as seeing where your skill level is and expects you to give your best effort to meet that skill level the entire time you are on the range. I would highly recommend attending Chuck's classes!

CPL616 Rocks!

I highly recommend this class to all. I was very reluctant to take the class since it had been over 50 years that I had shot a firearm, and being a senior, it had been quite a while since I had taken any formal class or training. Right from the beginning, Chuck put me at ease. His professionalism reminded me of some of the great instructors that I had in the US Air Force. He really knows his craft. Thank you Chuck, for your patients with me, and for making this class such a memorable one. I had a great time, and it was really fun too.

To start i let my cpl expire 3 times, once because i was out of state, and other stupid reasons. BUT Between taking the class at west walker gun club, port city pistol, and Chucks class was most thorough, fun, felt very comfortable. The guns he provides (AT A MORE THAN REASONABLE RATE) are comfortable, well balanced and easy to shoot for all. As an Eagle scout, i have known many shooting instructors over the years. Chuck makes everything cut and dry, he tells you the proper way and perfectly coaches. From newbie to expert.... youll learn alot! A+ Thank you Mr. Bates! RECCOMENDED!

Awesome class

Chuck was a very knowledgeable instructor and very easy to learn from. If you are considering taking a CPL class, I cannot think of a reason to take any class other than a CPL616 class.

Awesome class!

I had a 1 on 1 class with Chuck and he is an awesome instructor! He makes things very easy to understand, and does a great job answering any questions you have. The class itself is very informative as well. Growing up around firearms, I thought I was pretty knowledgeable, but this class taught me quite a few things that I didn’t know. Chuck does a great job making sure that safety is his #1 priority, and making sure it is for you as well. The class was fun to take, especially the range portion. I would definitely recommend taking your CPL through Chuck!

Great Class

The class was very informative and Chuck was an awesome instructor he was very patient with everyone. He was extremely helpful and answered any questions or concerns I had. I was extremely nervous at the beginning of this class because I had never held a gun let alone shot one. I am happy I took the class as I am now much more comfortable and have confidence when it comes to handling them now. I would highly recommend anyone who is thinking about taking this class with Chuck to do so it was a great investment!

Great Instructor

Chuck was absolutely knowledgeable, informative and patient as I had no firearms background. He took his time explained things made sure to answer any questions that I may have had. He made me feel totally comfortable at the range and I didn’t feel pressured or rushed to shoot and be perfect. Great Guy even offered to train with me outside of class. Thank you Chuck I’m a lot more comfortable with firearms thanx to you!

The Truth

Sup y'all, this is my very 2nd review I've ever done in life.
I'm only doing this review, because my man Chuck is a beast.
I thought this would be a complicated course. It was actually easier then I thought. (My man Chuck came thru fa me). He made it all make sense. Plus he'll take the time to answer any questions you may have. Long story shout thanks Chuck..!!
5 stars hats off
