Newest certified pistol packers strut their stuff in Collins. Posing here with their side-arms under a tent with man-sized silhouette targets in the background, these ladies achieved high scores. They came from all around the Collins area for the best in gun safety and firearms training.
The new Collins Pistol Range at 83 Walker Lane offered its first “Ladies Only” basic pistol class this past weekend with seven students. The class was a big success with over half the students returning the following day for the Enhanced Concealed Carry Firearms Course. Two straight days of shooting can easily tire the best of manly shooters but these ladies stood up to the test.
They left the Collins Range with comments like, “the best class I ever had,” “now, I know much more about handguns than I ever expected,” and “I would highly recommend this course to anybody.” Jo Ann Todd of Mount Olive boasted the highest score on her team (93) and the highest of all the ladies, surpassing most of the men in the second day of Enhanced Training.
Doing business as Concealedweaponcarry.com, the owners of the Collins Range plan to continue offering “Ladies Only,” “Men’s Basic,” “Enhanced Concealed Carry,” and the soon to come, “Competition Shooting for Newcomers” class. For information, call Rick Ward at 601 665 6088.

As of now, the Governor doesn't even know and he signed the bill into law!
When selecting an instructor, remember, an expert shooter is not necessarily an expert instructor. Also half the training you need for enhanced carry is related to Mississippi laws. Not knowing the law can cost you your freedom, your permit, your gun and your money. Instructors without extensive law enforcement backgrounds usually know very little about the law.
There are over 160 enhanced instructors listed on the MHP website. Few will travel the state to cater to your needs and few will provide the training for $100 or less. I wrote the book on Concealed Weapon Carry: Mississippi Laws (2012) and I am currently writing the new one for 2013. (I wrote the changes in the law).
I am a graduate of the state police academy, military police academy and the FBI National Academy. I have a Master's in Education and a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice. I have instructed more years than I would like to remember with 34 years experience, using dozens of law enforcement, military, special ops engagement and dignitary protection firearms tactics to customize my training for you.
In my first year as an Enhanced Instructor, I trained almost 1,200 people in over 90 classes all around the state.
