Smoking Pirate provides quality new and used firearms along with ammunition and a few other things as well on a concierge service level. We are a "by appointment" ONLY location.
Our training is designed to partner with each person on their journey towards firearm safety, competence and comfortability.
We take great pride assisting each person as they become more familiar with firearms in general and with understanding the laws in the State of Florida that are applicable for concealed carry.
We desire each person who takes a class with us to gain confidence!
Doc is a Licensed Psychotherapist with a doctoral degree in psychotherapy and has a special program for those who have gone through trauma and now want to learn more about personal protection.
Each Concealed Carry class is 3 to 5 hours long and involves classroom interaction and live firing on the range. The goal is to promote safety, confidence and competence.
We offer advanced "specialized" training for anyone who so desires. Some of the classes offered are: How to Clean a Gun; How to Improve your Shooting Accuracy; What type of gun do you want to purchase as well as other classes.
We understand that some are more comfortable with private lessons and so these are available. Please contact Doc for more information.
