The best CCW permit class. I greatly appreciate your knowledge and experience with personal defense. I attended the CCW Permit class in October 2010. Helpful advise and knowledge with the CCW laws for FLA, VA and PA. I received both my FLA and VA permits within two months. I definitely will attend advance classes on Deadly Force and defensive firearm classes. Thank you for your 31 CCW permit class.
BRAVO!!! Just an absolutely superior course of instruction. And all of the folks that helped with the processes, your wife, the two police officers, the gentleman processing the notary, et al - what a great group of people you have!! As an airline pilot I've had some the best instruction in the aviation world. I have to say that you've raised the level exponentially!

Both myself and my friend Chris, who accompanied me to your course, were extremely impressed by your depth of knowledge and the manner of your presentation. I have to say that I haven't enjoyed myself AND learned so much in the process, on any subject in quite a long time. Truly a great way to spend a day and in the process meet some fantastic people.
I really enjoyed Saturday's class. It was very informative and well put together. I sent all 3 applications yesterday; VA, FL, and UT. I will contact you after the holidays and discuss training oppurtunities since none of this counts without on-going training. Thanks again! Well worth the money and time!!!!
I just took your PDS course for Florida and Virginia and Utah, and I must say that you not only made it enjoyable but informative. I would wholeheartedly recommend that anyone wishing to obtain a non resident CCW take Dr. Eimer's course. Nice person, great course and of course a great support staff! Thank you again!
I have to say the 31 state course for FL, VA and UT was great. I learned alot and had a great time.
I received my Don Hume holster yesterday and went to the range today to work with it and I have to say I am extremely happy with it. The quality is outstanding and the performance is the best I have ever used. Thank you for such a fine product.
Thanks again for your assistance & professionalism. I truly learned a lot in a short time. The weapon you use, is that the Glock 22? I couldn't remember the numbers, but did remember that it is .40 cal. One other question: Looking on gunbroker.com, what's the difference in a 22 & Glock 35? And what's a fair price I can expect to pay without cleaning out my bank account?
Thanks for your time and guidance. You are a true professional.
You probably don't remember me but I took your private Florida concealed weapons permit course about 2.5 years ago. I just wanted to say that I still remember the class and that now I'm an NRA certified pistol instructor giving concealed weapon classes, range safety officer, reloading instructor and the chief instructor for the Ocala Sportsman Association. I just wanted to once again say thank you for a great class.
Dear Dr. Eimer,
Just wanted to thank you (and your wife) for the great class on April 18 at Delaware Valley. I had originally signed up for only the Florida permit, and during the class made a last minute decision to include the Virginia permit as well. Really glad I did that, since I just recently received my Virginia permit (I received it 30 days after mailing the application). Since I have my Virginia permit, I can now apply for my Maine, New Hampshire and Connecticut permits (and may even have one or more of them before I receive Florida). Again, thanks for a great class and all your help.
A few hours after I sent you that email on Friday, April 24th, I received my holster and I cannot tell enough people how happy I am with my purchase. I have been giving your web address to several people. Thank you. And once more I am very happy with my purchase, it is an excellent holster.
Thank you for all of your help. I had absolutely no confidence in my ability to use an automatic. Now I have some. When I got home last night, I field stripped the Glock twice and cleaned it as well. I need to start to feel as comfortable with it as I do with my revolvers or even shot-guns and rifles.
I learned a tremendous amount and I will not hesitate to call on you again for training.
Lovin' all of the information you guys are sending. Keep up the good work.
Finished reading Dr. Eimer's "Armed Senior Citizen" and have purchased many of the items and beefing up security around the home (lighting, door bars, etc.) and most of all - STAYING ALERT!
Thanks again for all that you guys are doing.
I wanted to thank you again for the great training; I really enjoyed your class. I just received both my Florida and Virginia carry permits! I hope you and your family had a great holiday and have a very Happy New Year.
Just a quick (albeit delayed!) note to thank you for your prompt response to my order. Very impressive - and very much appreciated. My daughter attends Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, and to top that off, has had repeated unwanted attention from one particular boy. As a mom, this is hard to take. I want (and offer, daily) to simply get her out of there. She insists that this is the right school for her major, etc., and she wants to stay. Giving her the Spitfire pepper spray and having a practice session with her (so I KNOW she knows how to use it), and watching her attach it to her lanyard with her school ID and room key, was helpful. This little plastic dynamo has given me a small measure of cautious relief.
Thank you so much for offering the product, and for filling our request so quickly. We greatly appreciate it.
I just wanted to express my thanks and appreciation to you, your wife, and Paul for an outstanding class yesterday! I really enjoyed meeting and talking with all of you!
I am someone with a deep Christian Faith and I normally don't miss my church's Sunday Service for any reason. However, something told me that it was important for me to be in your class yesterday and I'm glad that I was.
As I drove home, it struck me that ALL of us gathered at Classic Pistol yesterday honored those who lost their lives in New York 5 years ago perhaps without even knowing it. By taking yet a further step to defend ourselves and those we hold dear, we honored not only those lost but Almighty God who created us all and requires that we protect His creation.
Please keep in touch and if I can ever be of service to you, your family, and staff in any way feel free to contact me.
May God bless you and your wonderful work today and always.
I've recently taken your safety course for the Florida CCW permit. Just want you to know that I've owned a lot of guns since I was a teenager and have had a PA CCW for 15 years. I'm not embarrassed to say that I benefited from your safety course.
Last night I was watching a detective show and they were all gearing up in the station, chambering and and sheathing their guns. I couldn't help noticing that they were pretty much all aiming them at all the people in the office. You definitely have me thinking about safety. Normally I'm noticing how many shots are fired. Now I'm thinking about safety.
I've referred you to a couple friends and am trying to get my wife to take your course before she handles a gun for her first time.
Hi Doctor Bruce,
I went through your Florida Concealed Carry course today. A short note to thank you for your time - it was well worth the cost. I enjoyed the class very much and found it very informative. I am looking forward to taking your Farnam course in March and hope to take Massod Ayoob's course in the Judicious Use of Deadly Force if you offer it. His book "In The Gravest Extreme" is the cornerstone of my defensive handgun library.
It was good to meet you and your lovely wife. My wife and she had an interesting talk. Any rate looking forward to taking another class. Again thank you for your most enlightening class.
Dear Dr. Eimer,
Thank you for giving the class and doing the paperwork for the Florida and Virginia permits on 12/1/07. I already received my VA permit back in the mail - it only took three weeks after they received it. While I was waiting I also applied to New Hampshire. It was only $20.00 for 5 years and it only took 11 days to receive it. I believe that you said Florida takes up to 90 days.
I received my holster today [Don Hume Inside the Waist band Clip-On H-715-M] and yes sir it would have been worth a 3 month wait, but I'm glad it wasn't that long. I have to say I was in awe when I saw this holster. It is a fantastic work of art.
Jim and I hope you're doing well. By early January 2008 we each received FL, UT and VA non-resident CCW permits thanks to your excellent course. We hope you have a great and safe 2008!
Dear Dr. Bruce,
I attended class on June 9th and really appreciated how quickly it was handled. I got both Florida and Virginia paperwork. Virginia was back in three weeks and Florida in six. Also like the new links to your web site. Great job, thanks. Will tell my friends!!!!!
We went to look at some firearms and did purchase a used handgun. We bought a Berretta Series 92 9mm from Surplus City. They were very pleased that we listened to them and took a class with you. This gun seems a little heavier. Also we liked the external safeties. I believe that we will like this one better than the Glock. Jen liked the fact that the grip is smaller. We will e-mail you to see when we can get together with you to show you our new purchase.
Also we stopped by the police department to find out how to interact with our PD for everyone's safety. The Chief supports our purchase and was pleased we stopped. We have been practicing the techniques you showed us (on an empty gun) - grip, loading, etc. Look forward to our next session in a couple of weeks.
P.S. The guys at Surplus City say hi and Ray who helped us was great.
Dear Dr. Eimer,
Your recommendation of the V-Line Top Draw gun safe was right on the money! I received the product today and was very impressed with its quality and construction. This is a real source of peace of mind - a secure, yet easy to access means of keeping a ready firearm at hand in the event of an emergency. And you were right about how simple this is to open if you know the combination. I have practiced in total darkness and you don't need to see the lock in order to open it. And that means I don't have to turn on a light and reveal my location to a potential intruder. Thanks for making the recommendation. Molly and I will both sleep better.
I took your awesome Florida Concealed Carry Permit class in July. I just wanted to tell you that I received my permit without delay or problems. In your short class, I learned a lot of valuable information, not only about the laws, but about basic gun skills too. The class was great. I have told some of my friends about it and recommended it to them. Thanks so much. You are a great instructor. Keep up the great work. Take care.
I took your Florida CCW course when you were in York in February. My permit arrived on Friday. Thanks for offering the course and helping to get everything correct so that there is no problem getting the permit.
I have recommended your course to fellow CCP holders that I know here in the Harrisburg area.
I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you for the class. A friend and I took your CCW class in February at the York gun show, and my Florida permit just arrived last week. As we discussed, my home State of Maryland still has a ways to go to catch up with the surrounding States in allowing their citizens the freedom to protect themselves and their families, but I have taken another step in that direction by taking your class, and I will continue to further my education in the self defense field. Keep up the good work, and I'll keep spreading the word that good training is available for those willing to step up and take a pro active part in keeping their families safe. I hope to see you at another Pennsylvania gun show soon, so I can stop by and say hello. Thanks again and stay safe!

It's great to hear back from you, and feel free to use my letter on your web site or in any printed material. I have already shared with others my happiness with the quality and integrity of your program and training, and will continue to do so. Thanks again for the service you provide to the honest citizens your organization serves. Like Mas Ayoob, Clint Smith and others before you, you provide a vital service that helps good people stay alive. Keep up the good work!
Jim and I want to thank you, your wife and Lou for the excellent and informative course on Saturday. We both learned a lot, and it was great going to the range with you. We are going to submit our paperwork right away and will let you know when we get our permits. Jim and I would also like to keep in touch for further courses and recommendations from you. Greetings to the dogs, too. Keep healthy and stay safe!
Thank you for a very good experience last Saturday. I took your class at RAF and enjoyed the lecture very much.
I felt I had to write to tell you guys that the Don Hume J.I.T. Slide Holster is the finest holster I have ever owned!! I’m sure all of the Don Hume’s are the same quality but even after a year of daily use it’s still like new. Some people say a holster isn’t comfortable until it gets old and broken in.. wrong with Don Hume! I hardly know its there. It’s not bulky. It hugs my hip. It doesn’t wear out or stretch my dress belts. It doesn’t break my belt loops like other holsters have. I could roll around upside down and my gun wouldn’t even move in the holster. Now for the size of the J.I.T. Slide that is remarkable. The amazing thing is I can draw my pistol in and out with almost no friction... that’s amazing to me. It’s just the quality of the fit I guess.
Anyway, what a fine holster line you guys make. Like it was made just for my personal exact pistol.
I just thought the people at the Don Hume manufacturing facility should be told of the fine job they’re doing. I hope you pass this message along.
Thank you and "I’ll be back,"
I wanted to thank you for all the useful information I got from your FL/VA CCL Class yesterday at RAF. I plan on taking a one on one class to further my skills. I also realize after doing more research on your website that it's important to get a non-resident permit in every state contiguous to my own as per Massad Ayoob. I'm now looking into several other states for a Non-Resident CCL. Thank you for your time yesterday and I look forward to training with you in the future.
Thank you for the training and your encouragement to Janet. You boosted her skill and confidence.
