    Your Concealed Weapon Permit Colorado Instructor - Dan Brunner

    The Personal Defense Institute offers a full range of firearms instruction from the Concealed Carry Class weapon permit Safety Class (CCW ) Classroom only, the NRA Basic Pistol Class including Women's Only NRA Basic Pistol (which meets the Colorado Handgun Permit requirements), Refuse to be a Victim® to Defensive Shooting and Security Guard Training.

    The Personal Defense Institute's number one objective is to teach firearm safety, awareness and responsibility.

    Read any newspaper and see the number of violent attacks, murders, home invasions, stalkers and car jacking’s to understand why Americans are applying for concealed carry permits across this country in unprecedented numbers. As of May 2012, more than 130,000 people in Colorado have obtained their concealed carry permits in order to protect themselves and their families. The police cannot and are not obligated to protect you, and there just aren’t enough of them. The legal system seems remiss in taking criminals off the street and keeping them off. The politicians are more worried about their own jobs and getting re-elected than the people they are supposed to represent.

    The world is full of wolves and the average citizens are sheep. Do you want to be a sheep or will you become a sheepdog? Get your Colorado Concealed Carry Permit ... DON'T wait another day Sign Up Now!

    Thank you so much for the wonderful job you did teaching the CCW class I attended Thursday, Nov. 14th. I really enjoyed the way you presented the material and what you covered! You answered all my questions and provided a lot of information I did not think of. The scenarios you discussed on how to handle situations is perhaps my favorite part of the class. I really appreciate your willingness to help other people learn more about firearm safety! B Blackwell
