I'd like to reserve this class for people who are 60 or 65+ years of age or slower than average person, and/or have limited mobility.

All valid questions. Class location and price will vary based on size.

I am trying to source some private land to rent and posted about that in another thread.  Since none of that is concrete, let's assume class will be at Article II in Lombard.

 

I structure my defensive pistol classes one of two ways, either 3 individual 3.5 hour days or 1 8 hour day, which I consider accelerated. Nothing is lost in the accelerated class, we just don't need to spend them time lost warming up on day two or day three. I think for the senior it would be better to do the shorter class?

So having said all that, 1ea 3.5 hour session, Defensive Pistol in Article II, I charge $125. 

If you are interested please email me mentioning the senior class and if I have 5 students, I will reserve a Saturday in late September. I will have a maximum of 6 students.   alphakoncepts@hotmail.com

Are you planning any more "senior" classes in the near future? There seems to be some interest. If yes, can you post any additional details?

I regularly take Gun self defense classes thru my local junior college and am often the youngest person attending. I am 62. However I suspect the main reason for the slant toward the older clientele is because we don't have to pay any tuition. Just a $20.00 range fee for 8 classes. Can't beat that with a stick!
