Basic Ladies Handgun Course

A class designed for ladies only

May10/11 2016

June 21/22 2016


This class provides hands on instruction to a small class of women. This is the perfect class for women who have never used a firearm. We provide a range of handguns for ladies to practice with, as well as all of the ammunition. Our expert instructors take a one-on-one approach to helping each lady find the gun that suits her best. At the end of this course, each lady will know how to properly handle a gun. She will be comfortable loading, unloading, carrying and shooting a firearm. When the lady leaves this course not only does she have her enhancement for her concealed carry permit, but she also has a good idea of what type of gun fits her before she goes to purchases one. The first night of class is held in a classroom. Textbooks and all material are included in the tuition fee. Ladies are encouraged to bring a snack if they so desire. The second night of class is held at an outdoor range. Ladies are asked to bring hearing and eye protection.

June class registration.  

Kingfish note: Mr. Harbour usually provides a .38, .380, .22, and 9 mm to shoot.  Good way for women to figure out which pistol is the most comfortable for them to use.  This class would be a great Mother's Day present. 
Enhanced Concealed Carry Class

Confidence in carrying your concealed weapon. 

May 3/4 2016

June 14/15 2016      


This course is about safe gun handling and preparing your mind for a confrontation. After this course you will have a clear understanding of gun safety, fundamentals of using your weapon, and will be mentally prepared to survive a hostile encounter. Students do not have to have their conce aled carry permit to attend this class. We will go over what you need to do to obtain a concealed carry permit in the state of Mississippi and what you will need to do to have that permit enhanced. Upon completion of this course you will have an enhanced certification which allows permit holders to carry concealed in more places than a concealed carry permit alone allows.

May class registration.
June class registration.

Just a question. I was told that part of the new law that allows carrying a gun in church also allowed a person to conceal carry a gun as long as the gun was in a holster.
Can anyone tell me if that is right? Thanks

Brad Harbour has the most complete and informative Enhanced Carry Class in the state. His classes are no pressure and enjoyable. I hope to go to another one soon for a refresher course.

Do women need apply for "enhanced" any longer? New state law permits them to carry in their purse... and that purse usually goes with them everywhere.

@10:35 ... because you've taken every EC class and can actually speak with knowledge on the subject? I'm fine with you endorsing a particular instructor, but the hyperbole isn't helpful.

I've taken a class from him and he is the best! No pressure and we had blast.
And don't think the law makes an enhanced carry permit less important. If you travel out of state most other states recognize a MS permit and treat it just as their own.
The most important thing is safety. I've been shooting guns since I was a kid. Even have a brother that's a cop. Went through hunters ed. I thought I knew a thing or two and man was I wrong! You learn a whole lot in these classes.

@11:29 You literally sound like a third grader that just learned a new word.

@10:35 The stated purpose of the new law was to protect Churches from civil liability in the event that an ENHANCED permit holder had to use his or her firearm as part of a church organized security team. One of the other parts of this law was an amendment to the original concealed carry statute that allows for the carrying of a concealed weapon in a sheath or holster without the need for a permit. However, citizens carrying in this manner are bound by section 13 of the concealed carry statute which lists off all of the places that are off limits to regular permit holders (or now non permit holders). So whether you elect to open carry, concealed carry with a permit or conceal without a permit you are bound by the off limits places as listed in section 13. If you elect to get your permit and your enhancement all of the places listed in section 13 are no longer off limits save for the exceptions noted in the enhanced carry statute (police stations, jails, detention facilities, places of nuisance). If you have any desire to carry a weapon concealed out of state you had better get your permit.

While it is perfectly legal to carry a firearm openly or concealed now without a permit in Mississippi, that does not change the importance of getting trained. It's a huge responsibility, and a skillset that you don't learn by "being around guns your entire life".

How about a class for men who have never used a handgun?

@12:47 - You will do fine in his enhanced carry class. I did and I was like you.

11:29 has got a jelly belly. I pray to Jesus you aren't teaching these enhanced classes to people or any gun class...we have enough jerk offs thinking they are Rambo Gun Gods with bad attitudes.

How long does it take before you learn to hold your gun side ways like you are supposed to do? That means you are serious.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
