He is a strong supporter and advocate for our Rights and we could use many more like him.” – Nick Laurino, Indianapolis, IN

He is always available for questions and guidance. #1 on referral list for this category!” – Adam Taggett, Detroit, MI


“As a former student of Rick’s I can honestly say that he is one of the best firearms instructors in this industry. He is safe and professional with all of his courses, and is always reachable for consultation. I would highly recommend Rick for anyone seeking knowledge about firearm safety and personal protection.” – Hubert Joyce, Detroit, MI


“Thorough, effective and affordable. After taking this vs
Class with Rick, I not only felt more comfortable carrying my weapon, I understood the rules governing it’s use better. The gun range portion was competitive, but comforting also. Rick is very knowledgeable and an awesome instructor. If you want a CPL, call Rick and attend the class today!” – Terrence T. Lane, Detroit, MI


“Rick is one of a handful of NRA instructors that truly gets what having a CPL is about and why the training is so important. That the merging of an unarmed civilian with someone who has decided to help protect themselves and by extension others takes deliberate actions and training. He understands the logic/reasons behind the science of instruction and can communicate with anyone who joins his class. His teaching style is fluid and well thought out, there is no fluff, no corner cutting, no “well that was close enough” instruction. He is an asset to the community and the best recommendation I can give is that I continue to strongly suggest that my family and friends take his courses.” – James Hudgens, Flint, MI


“Rick is a fountain of knowledge and he is passionate about educating his students. Rick invites you to a comfortable atmosphere where you feel confident and empowered. When you leave his class know that you have been trained by the BEST!” – Linda Bishop, Detroit, MI


“I have had the pleasure of learning about gun safety from Rick. Rick has a wealth of knowledge about fire arms, gun laws and safety. His curriculum for both aspiring and current fire arm owners, ensures they are equipped with knowledge to be safe and responsible gun owners. Rick also hosts a free training day once a year for women. The participants for this event has almost tripled over the past couple of years. Thanks to Rick and his team, more women are learning more about fire arms, being comfortable with fire arms and becoming fire arm owners. Rick is very profession and his classes are interesting and very engaging.” – Lynisha Oliver, Detroit, MI


“Rick is an expert in every sense of the word. When I’ve had any questions concerning firearms I was given clear and concise answers. I was always responded to in a timely fashion. Rick has an extensive wealth of knowledge. If you need any training or any information concerning firearms then Rick is the go to guy!” – Marquis Hamilton, Detroit, MI


“Rick is an excellent speaker and teacher. Rick is well known in the gun community. If there is something 2nd amendment related going on in Michigan you’ll see Rick there. If you are taking a class from Rick or having him speak at your event, you will not be disappointed.” – Jim Ryan, Dearborn, MI


“Yes, I loved every minute of his class, my Sister and I took his class together and we agreed it was very informational. By the time the class ended my Sister and I felt we were armed with the knowledge we needed to carry responsibly. Any one who ask me about a cpl class, I give them Rick Ector’s name and number, I don’t even have to think about it because he’s awesome instructor, great speaker, passionate about what he teaches, all around great guy. Thank you again Rick Ector” – Tracey Fann, Detroit, MI
