** Upcoming Class: BASIC
This class can also be used to satisfy the shooting
requirements for the Missouri CCW. During the
lunch break the instructor can provide a revolver for
participants to shoot, which would leave only the
classroom portion of the CCW class to be completed at
a later date at a discounted price of $100.

I wanted to thank you for the Tactical Pistol
Course you hosted in July. I appreciated the
detailed, but easy to understand, instruction and wide
range of exercises. Also, the course curriculum
was such, that any shooter would benefit from it, no
matter their experienced level. You can never
get too much practice on the basics and it is rare to
get the opportunity to practice engaging a target
from, and around, a vehicle platform.
Thanks again for the excellent class. Looking
forward to taking it again in September.

he is also an outstanding instructor and first rate
tactical trainer. You can bet your life on what

years ago I attended a CCW class taught by Tom Berry.
At the time Tom stressed that getting your endorsement
was just the beginning and that we really needed
training after obtaining our endorsement before we
were safe and competent to carry. The first
training class I attended after obtaining my CCW
demonstrated to me the breadth of what I did not know
about carrying. Worse was that I did not realize
the extent of my ignorance. I have now taken
several Tactical Pistol classes from Tom (and several
from other instructors as well.) I highly
recommend Tom’s classes. They usually consist
of a classroom session followed by a day on the range.
The classroom session teaches safety and technique.
Those are then honed on the range. In the past,
Tom’s classes have included hostage scenarios,
shooting from behind a barricade, and even carjacking
defense. The class usually concludes with a
steel shoot off among the class members. Take
his class if you get a chance. You will learn
and have a great time. -- Steve Quinn.
have the most outstanding range in the Kansas City
area for practical pistol shooting. The way you
progressively format your classes to have students
shooting better by the end of the day than they were
at the beginning is tactically sound. I have
seen many novice shooters gain the confidence and
competence to become outstanding practitioners of
their second amendment rights after taking your
classes with follow up practice on their own.
The drills you teach, which include shooting on the
move, carjacking scenarios, doorway clearing scenarios
and the shooting competitions at the end of your
classes set you apart from any local pistol classes I
have seen. -- Kevin Regan

Handgun Should I Buy for Self Defense
article mentions some things that I have found important to
consider when buying a handgun for self-defense. These
are things that come from my experiences in the
military, as a deputy sheriff & SWAT Team member,
and as road patrol officer, detective & firearms
instructor for two police departments and from endless
training at academies in the civilian self-defense
side of things…
