    Frequently Asked Questions



    Excellent weekend! Had an absolute blast. The 301 in particularly pushed me just a little (but not too far) out of my comfort zone at times - I got that unsettling feeling in the pit of my gut that lets me know I'm doing something worthwhile and having fun. Thought you and the rest of RPD deserved a nice review, so here it goes: I have taken several handgun classes with RPD now and I can't get enough! Before signing up for my first live-fire course (which for me was the Unrestricted Carry Permit Training) I was hesitant for several reasons. I was concerned about my own skill level and whether I was ready to participate in the class. I was concerned about the safety and wisdom of participating in a class where a number of other non-expert students would all be handling pistols in close proximity to each other. I was concerned that if the course didn't prove worthwhile dedicating an entire day to the experience would prove tedious. My concerns were unnecessary on every count. I was able to contact RPD and speak directly with the course instructor about my current skill level. He asked me a number of questions and determined that I would be an acceptable candidate for the course. The morning classroom portion was interesting, often entertaining and provided incredible useful information and insights. When we got to the range I was truly impressed. The method used by RPD for managing range safety is incredible. Not once did I feel unsafe despite being in a class with a number of similarly inexperienced shooters. Every RPD instructor is vigilant in enforcing RPD's simple-to-remember and effective range safety rules. As far as my concerns about the class being tedious or not worthwhile – wow! I found myself wishing there were more hours in the day so we could keep going. My skills immediately and exponentially improved both during the class and in the following weeks as I practiced the techniques. I have since taken the Low Light Handgun Operator course (my personal favorite so far, and a good idea as most defensive situations occur at night and it was a lot harder to shoot in the dark than I thought it would be) and the 201 and 301 Defensive Pistol Skills courses you wouldn't believe the drills they will have you doing within the span of a day in these advanced courses, all without compromising range safety in the slightest. It's a fun, friendly and safe environment to learn in. I can't say enough positive things about RPD or their responsible and practical attitude and philosophies towards handgun safety and concealed carry.
