We have classes that provide safe firearms training, Concealed Handgun License for Oregon and customized programs to meet your needs.
Thank you for visiting Deschutes Firearms Training. My name is Patrick Combs and I look forward to instructing you on the knowledge, skills, and attitude for owning and operating a firearm safely. I am an NRA certified Basic Pistol instructor and CCW/CHL Concealed Handgun License instructor. I have participated in the United States Practical Shooting Association Competitive Pistol events for many years, and I am a very active volunteer at the Redmond Rod and Gun Club where I serve as a Chief Range Safety Officer.
You may question why you would want to spend money on my CCW course when you can take an on-line 1 hour course and purchase a certificate for $55. The answer is the extensive breadth of material we provide over two days, including live-fire training.
My small class size of 1-6 students enables me to devote time with each student to achieve safety, proficiency, and confidence with your pistol. You will also learn how to clean and maintain your firearm. Both the Basic Pistol and CCW classes are open to anyone of any skill level and include the book(s) required to use in the classroom, which are yours to keep and reference in the future. We include live-fire range training time in both, which on-line courses cannot provide.
Deschutes Firearms Training also utilizes the latest technology including laser cartridge target practice, as well as the Mantis X10 Elite Shooting Performance System. Students will have the opportunity to fire multiple pistols in different calibers, as well as their own firearm. Personal instruction is also available at $80 per hour. Classroom instruction takes place in Bend, and the range portion will be done at Redmond Rod and Gun Club.
