Combat Barbie Firearms Training Policies
Combat Barbie Firearms Training strives to be the best firearms and personal protection company on the planet. Below are our training policies and procedures.
Refunds / Deposits:
We have a no refund policy here at Combat Barbie Firearms Training due the simple fact that we have a limited number of seats for each class, mainly due to safety reasons and supervision on the range. When you register for a class and then cancel that means someone else could have taken your seat in that particular class. The only time a refund will be given is if Combat Barbie Firearms Training is able to rebook your reserved seat. A deposit is required to hold your spot in a group class. If cancellation becomes necessary due to low attendance, weather etc, we will make every effort to inform clients in a timely manner, and a full refund will be issued, or the client may reschedule in to another class at their option. Private instruction clients are required to make a non-refundable deposit equaling 50% of cost of class. Class minimum size is usually 4 people and most likely the class will be cancelled if we have less than 4 people signed up, for seminars the minimum number is 10 attendees.
At Combat Barbie Firearms Training safety, especially on the range is our number 1 priority. We reserve the right to ask anyone not observing the safety rules or behaving in a belligerent manner to leave the range or the classroom in order to secure the safety of other students. This includes individuals under the influence of controlled substances, alcohol etc. All students will sign a waiver of liability before class. Students will also be required to certify in writing that they are not a prohibited person as listed below.
We use dummy ammunition for all classroom work for training in loading and unloading etc. Students carrying firearms will be asked to leave their firearms in their vehicles until after class or in the safe that is usually provided by the instructor. NO EXCEPTIONS ~ This includes instructors conducting the class!
~ We have an absolute NO LIVE AMMUNITION IN THE CLASSROOM for all firearms classes.
Anyone attending class under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Combat Barbie Firearms Training will not be responsible for minors while in class and should it become necessary for the instructor to remove a minor from class, a parent or guardian will need to be available. Minors also cannot legally sign our liability waiver, so a parent or guardian also need to be available to sign the document.
Shirt - Be sure that you wear a shirt that sufficiently covers your chest. I particularly avoid any v-necks, or low-cut shirts. I usually am wearing a t-shirt or a sweatshirt when I go shooting. The reason being is when you’re shooting, those hot casings don’t always go where they are “supposed to” and some of them make it down a loose shirt and linger in your bra. Now you’re doing the brass dance. If a hot casing isn’t enough to make you lose your shooting concentration, then you are one tough kitty! So if you’ve got cleavage, cover it up. (Don’t worry. You’ll still look awesome with a gun in your hand.) Also, be careful not to wear any “dry clean only” clothing. The shooting gases aren’t always removed in the dry cleaning process, and cotton cleans better. So be sure you wear something that can easily be thrown into the washer.
Shoes - Again, those hot casings are very unpredictable where they may fall. So I never wear shoes that expose my pretty pedicure. I always ensure that they are well covered. Please don’t wear flip flops or sandals when you go to the range.
Hair - Shooting a firearm is a process that gives off gasses which settle on hair and skin. Plus, shooting requires your full attention, and that may be hard to give if you hair keeps falling in your face. It is a good idea to wear your hair in a ponytail, braid, messy bun or twist at the shooting range. Be sure to chose a hairstyle that not only protects your hair from the elements, but also keeps your hair out of your face and can accommodate wearing a hat, eye and hearing protection.
Hat - I prefer wearing a hat when I go shooting. It also keeps any glare from the sun or the lights out of my eyes, so it makes for more accurate shooting. If you’re using electronic ear muffs, or simply those that go over your head instead of inserted in your ears, be sure to wear a hat that your ear muffs can easily go on top of.
Long Fingernails - For those of you who have those great looking nails, that’s fine. But you should carry a nail brush with you for washing your hands afterwards. Use the brush to scrub thoroughly under your nails and around your cuticles. The shooting debris is toxic and you don’t want it getting into your food or drink.
Hopefully these tips for the shooting range help you to have a safer, more comfortable fun time at the range!

Inclement Weather Cancellations
Unless otherwise notified you should assume that classes will occur regardless of weather conditions. There is so much that goes into the planning, venues, instructors, resources and scheduling of all our classes that we will very rarely cancel a class due to weather conditions.
