I had the privilege of taking the CWP course from Richard Spangler. Richard's background as a SC Constable along with his knowledge of firearms contributed greatly to his teaching of the course. He could relate to real-life situations when the use of a firearm would be advisable and more importantly when NOT to use a firearm due to incomplete knowledge of the situation.
Richard is a consummate professional making the course both informative and yet fun at the same time. I highly recommend Richard for your CWP training.
Richard's class was conducted in a relaxed atmosphere and in a very professional manner. The instructions were presented in a very straight forward and very understandable way. The time at the range was very safety oriented with an instructor for every student. I would highly recommend Richard for anyone seeking a concealed weapons permit.
I highly recommend Richard’s class and instruction. He does a fantastic job not only explaining the laws around concealed carry, but also emphasizing what our duties and responsibilities are for safe and effective carry. He even works into scenarios that one might come across in real-life situations.
To say I've been around guns all my life is definitely an understatement. My father was an avid hunter. Both my husband and son enjoy the outdoors and hunting. I've always respected firearms, but I've never truly known too much about them. I wanted to take the class not just for the CWP license, but also to learn more about safety and handling of a handgun. I learned so much in the Spangler CWP Class. I felt much more comfortable with my gun after the class. Richard Spangler is an excellent instructor and he truly cares about the education of his students. I never once felt intimidated. The main thing I learned is that this is not something you do one day, but it something you must practice and continue work at to make yourself more familiar with. I took this class alongside my Dad. It was a great way to spend the day together and learn more about something that he loves so very much. I highly recommend the Spangler CWP class.
I have received firearms training in the Army, South Carolina Department of Corrections, Federal Bureau of Prisons, and advanced tactical training on a SORT team. Richard Spangler is experienced, knowledgeable, and patient to train shooters of ALL skill levels!
