Given the large amount of demand, particularly by women, for firearms training, we are excited to announce that MK Protection Strategies will be hosting Wisconsin concealed carry classes for women only, facilitated by our NRA Certified Pistol Instructor, Malissa Misch, in the greater Milwaukee area.
Women can now feel comfortable learning about firearms with a female instructor who can relate to them in private sessions and CCW classes.
In addition, few CCW classes are offered for women, facilitated by a woman. The greater Milwaukee area now has MK Protection Strategies, whose passion is empowering women to be confident in how to safely and legally protect themselves and their families by knowing safety and function of a firearm and/or carrying concealed.
Here’s what you can expect to learn in the 4 hour course:
This course meets or exceeds the firearms safety or training course requirements of s. Jus 17.03(7). This course includes, instruction on and practices the student’s comprehension of:
1) Firearm safety rules.
2) Safe firearm and ammunition use, handling, transport, and storage.
3) Legally permissible possession, transportation, and use of firearms, including use of deadly force.
4) Techniques for avoiding and controlling violent confrontations.
Students will be required to load and unload the supplied semi-automatic pistol and physically perform safety requirements, etc.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice recommends a minimum of 4 hours of training to receive a concealed carry license. We offer the 4 hour classroom training alone, as well as the classroom training coupled with live fire range time training.
MK Protection Strategies strongly recommends all students to schedule live fire range time along with their CCW class as this license requires practice to build skill and maintain it.
It is recommended that you have a basic familiarity with handguns prior to attending this CCW course. Contact us for a beginner session to prepare for your CCW class if needed.
There is an extensive amount of content that will be covered and time will not be available to reiterate basic fundamentals. It is best to have an understanding of safety rules, how to handle a handgun and have experienced shooting a handgun. If the basic knowledge of handling firearms is in place, more will be retained as it relates to the serious nature of carrying a concealed weapon and the many considerations around it.
Creating a basic knowledge about handguns and getting your CCW license is just the beginning of your journey in defending yourself and your family. In order to build skill, muscle memory and consistency, range time is the answer. The average CCW license holder goes to the range one time per month. Don’t be like the average CCW license holder. Learn to be disciplined in prioritizing practice time at the range and dry fire drills at home. Each shot and dry shot are important because they are establishing good or bad habits and creating muscle memory. Marksmanship/defensive shooting is a perishable skill, consistent practice is key.
Once you are comfortable with all of the shooting fundamentals and are showing some consistency and confidence, defensive drills can be introduced. Many things can be done at the range to practice defensive shooting situations even though you are only shooting at paper targets. Timed drills, for example, will increase your stress level a bit and allow you to experience shooting accurately under pressure. Practicing stopping the threat scenarios, clearing malfunctions,tactical reloading, etc. can all be done at the range with an instructor to give a taste of using your handgun in a defensive situation.
