Years ago I never saw myself applying for a CWP but Rbranches came highly recommended to me. I decided now is a great time to do this.....Richard is extremely knowledgeable, puts an emphasis on the most important facts for the written test, and is patient with the shooting portion. I was a total newbie I guess you can say and was a great experience. Have already reccomendation him to many others.


Richard is a wonderful instructor. He also offers many other classes. I am going to send my Son to his gun safety course. I think any child that is in a home that has guns should attend this class. Thank you Richard!


Richard was a great Instructor ,he takes his time with u and answer any question u may have I would recommend him to all my family and friends. He also does many other classes. Thank You Richard u were great


Richard is a wonderful instructor and very patient and knowledgeable!! I was so nervous but he helped me and answered all my questions!! I am happy to say I passed!! Thanks Richard and I will recommend you to all my friends and family!!


Just completed CWP class today GREAT instructor! Mixes it up with funny anecdotes and "war stories" to stress a point. More than once the whole class was laughing .... but guess what? You end up remembeing the story and the point he was making. Highly recommend him if you are thinking of going for your SC CWP.


Richard Branch is a great instructor! He is very thorough so it is easy for people (like myself) to understand the laws about guns when you don't know alot about them.
