I am currently conducting the shooting portion of my classes at Frontier Justice 


I have to rent a classroom and the range, whether I have 1 student or 20.  It is not cost effective to run a course with too few students.   Owing to previous no-shows and last minute cancellations, I must request payment up front.  Fees are refundable less a $25.00 deposit, if you can't attend after you've reserved your space.  Fees are fully refundable if I am forced to cancel for any reason.
