At Dragonman's, we know guns can be an intimidating topic, so we want everyone to have the opportunity to feel as comfortable and knowledgeable as possible. These courses are designed for individuals who have little to no experience handling a firearm and/or wish to obtain their concealed carry permit. Regardless of whether you are a first-time gun buyer, or an avid shooter, you will leave each class with the insight necessary to solidify the attitude, confidence, and awareness it takes to be a responsible gun owner for years to come! 

 

Classes are offered every weekend by Melissa, the manager of Dragonman's and Certified NRA Instructor.  Melissa has been NRA certified for four years in basic pistol, advanced defensive pistol, Inside the home, Outside the home, shotgun and rifle firearms training. She has 20+ years of experience to firearm exposure and gained invaluable training education from law enforcement officials and respected NRA instructors from around the country. In addition to being our marketing manager for advertising and YouTube content, research development coordinator and overall operations manager, Melissa enjoys teaching these classes on the side. 

 

Our assistant instructor is Charles, an active police officer with prior military experience and paramedic certification in Colorado Springs, CO. He is certified in advanced pistol, intro and advanced rifle, basic shotgun and teaches the medical component of all our courses. Don also assists in the customer service department and gunsmithing on occasion. He's been a certified NRA instructor for eight years and enjoys competition shooting in his spare time. 

 

Another assistant instructor is James, a USCCA, NRA and Sig Sauer certified pistol instructor. He brings 15 years of teaching experience and greatly enjoys what he does. He's trained in pistol/ carbine tactics, close-quarter training, advanced pistol fundamentals and medical first responder. James feels it's very important to leave ego at the door and see all that all students understand the concepts and apply it in a comfortable, encouraging environment. 

 

Last, we have a gunsmith on staff four days a week. Justin has over 30 years of experience in pistols, rifles, shotguns, machine guns, antiques and relics. In addition to being trained at several schools across the US, he always worked as a gunsmith for the FBI over the course of a decade. Rates can be handled hourly or based on the job at hand. Firearms are taken in and turned over as quickly as same day or within 4-5 days, unless parts need to be ordered.
