Charlie Nicole Kern
NRA certified Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun and PPITH instructor (CPL), and Range Safety Officer
Born and raised in the redwoods of northern California, Charlie Nicole Kern overcame a lifelong fear of guns by educating herself on firearms mechanics, use, and laws. She provides safety and education-based firearms training in a non-intimidating and non-abrasive environment.
Acknowledging that firearms are increasingly prevalent in American homes, outdoor and public spaces, Charlie believes that most people benefit from firearms training and education, whether they want to use, own and carry a firearm, or avoid them altogether. She learned that knowledge and safety can empower individuals to take responsibility for their own security, self-confidence and agency. She loves empowering others by sharing her experience through patient, kind and empathetic instruction, and by challenging the narrative of contemporary firearms culture.
Charlie provides basic to advanced pistol marksmanship training for sport, defense and just for fun. She also teaches basic shotgun and rifle mechanics, and is a certified concealed pistol license (CPL) instructor. Private consultation services can be customized to include firearms purchasing, range etiquette, technique fundamentals for safe and accurate use, home storage safety, group training and social outings.

Michael Clark
Hello, my name is Michael Clark. I am currently employed as the Deputy of Director of Police Service for the City of Benton Harbor. I am a career public servant. I started in the US Army in 1996 after graduating from Hartford High School. During my time in the Army, while on active duty I was stationed in Korea and Washington DC. Aside from that, I have been lifelong resident of South West Michigan. I am married and have 5 children. I am very slowly working on my master’s degree.
During my time in public service, the total time military and civilian has been law enforcement. My time as a police officer allowed me to seek out training and work up towards certifications to teach civilian’s and police officers as well. I am a state certified firearms instructor and have additional training to teach tactical pistol courses, shot gun courses, and rifle courses. I am also a certified armor for 1911 style pistols, Glock Pistols, Shotguns, and Rifles.
I enjoy teaching and working with the public, an educated and responsible public makes for a safer community as a whole.
I teach an 8-hour Michigan CPL Course that consists of 5 hours of classroom and 3 hours of range time. During this time, we will cover basic nomenclature, safe handling, Michigan law, carrying techniques, and basic firearms functions and malfunction drills.
The cost of training is $125.00 per student. Each student is required to have their own pistol, at least 50 rounds ammunition, hearing protection and eye protection. Students will bring their weapons to class in a case, however if you own a quality holster that may be used during the range time.
If you are interested in a class or one-or-one training please call Michael Clark at 269-363-0838 or email
