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’

This class was great and it covered all the information that was needed in a simple manner. Any questions you have Chuck will spend the time to answer them. Once again it is a great class, I learned a lot and had fun!

Excellent class. No doubt One on One time was worth it. Turned me from an anxious beginner to a more confident shooter. Walked away knowledgeable of my gun and smiling with my certificate.

I really enjoyed the class. I was extremely nervous going in to it but you immediately put my fears at ease. You explained everything thoroughly and were very patient. By the end of the class I felt more confident and prepared. Thank you!!

Chuck was very easy to listen to and was very thorough with his explanations. I would recommend cpl616 to both the first time shooters and the experienced as well.

Chuck was a very good instructor for my class . I was very nervous but he made me feel very relaxed and comfortable.  He was direct and to the point on everything and when I was not clear on something he took the time to explain what I needed to know. I would definitely recommend Chuck to anyone without hesitation . Thank you chuck

Chuck is a wonderful instructor. His classes are normally either one on one or very small. He’s also able to bring the class to you so you can take it in the comfort of your home if you want. Very thorough.

Chuck was a great instructor, the class was very informative and very easy to follow along. Also the classes are smaller which I liked makes it easier going with fewer people. Best part about it is that he will make accommodations to come to wherever you are for the whole class period, anyone looking to get there cpl I would highly recommend Chuck.

My husband and I with several family members took the CPL class offered by Chuck Bates. I found his class was easy to follow and very entertaining. Chuck was patient and informed. He took the time to answer any questions we had and made sure we all understood the course. Because of his teaching I was confident when I took the test, I would have no problem passing. Thanks Chuck.
