A LITTLE ABOUT LARRY


"I became a Texas Concealed Handgun Instructor in 2001 at the request of several people; many of them were victims of a crime. They wanted to protect themselves, but were too shy, and reserved to pursue any training. Having been a Police and National Rifle Association (NRA) firearms instructor for many years, I decided to pursue the challenge and began teaching as a Texas Concealed Handgun Instructor.

My goal with students is to educate them, build their self-confidence, and teach them proper/safe techniques while shooting. As an instructor it is my responsibility to teach this course in a manner that is easy to understand. As students you must learn the laws and requirements that the State of Texas has established. It will include videos, "war stories", and personal embarrassing moments." - Larry Bartek
