Helping Potential CCW Permitees
Yesterday at work I was talking with one of the maintenance men at the property where I guard. At one point he mentioned that he was concerned about the increasing level of crime and that he & his wife were going to be taking a CCW class together. I didn't mention to him that I had a permit but just listened to him talking.
He mentioned that a "friend of his" could get him & his wife into a class in Pahrump, Nevada for his CCW permit. I asked him how much they were charging and he mentioned the price of $500.00 for both of them. I then mentioned that that was too much for a CCW class here in the Las Vegas area. He asked me if I knew of any in the area that would cost less than $500.00.
I gave him the name of a location here in Vegas that only charges $75.00 per person (thegunstore.com). He was surprised that he was going to pay so much for a class that was less expensive here in Las Vegas. I didn't say why I knew about this class but he may have "assumed" that I have a carry permit. I just gave him the information to enroll him & his wife in the carry permit class. This maintenance man is on the "security committee" where I guard so he has always wanted a CCW permit for quite a while as he explained it to me.
Before I walked away he shook my hand and thanked me for giving him this useful information. I saved him & his wife some money as well. It's a good feeling knowing that you have helped someone else become a little safer!
Have any of you had this same experience? I would enjoy reading how this topic was brought up!
