Charlie BingamonCharlie

Charlie is retired and having fun shooting firearms and helping others learn to enjoy the sport. Learning to protect yourself has become a must in today’s world. Therefore, I feel instructing personal safety classes and awareness programs, as well as pepper spray classes are important to everyone. Competent firearm training for everyone from young or inexperienced people to those of “seasoned” ages, and everyone in between is my goal. Safe and responsible gun handling is stressed.  Hope to see you soon.
