Morgan and her husband Bob Paskvich own The Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range in Hot Springs, AR. Both work flawlessly as a team and have educated over 40,000 people over the years in gun safety and education. “Guns save lives,” said Morgan. Adding that she’s only failed three individuals in the course and that was due to their inability to handle a gun safely.
People from all walks of life have participated in their training program, and return regularly to continue that training. Teachers, senior citizens, law enforcement and even entire families visit frequently. Morgan said she has had several students who have taken as many as three other concealed carry courses before coming to her because they still felt unprepared.
“I allow at least 8 hours for this course. I don’t understand how some are teaching what is required by the state police in a few hours,” said Morgan. One element unique to her program is her instruction on establishing personal boundaries. “In order to be a responsibly armed citizen carrying a gun in public places, it is imperative that you have given much consideration to your personal boundaries with your gun. In other words, you need to know what you are and are not willing to do with your gun
Throughout Morgan’s course, she reminds her students that it is more than simply purchasing and carrying a weapon, and that the responsibility should be weighed with heavy conviction. Additionally, she demonstrates the importance of mental readiness and ways to avoid victimization.
After instilling the importance of mental preparedness, Morgan teaches the four most critical components of firearm safety. “There are people carrying concealed in mass shooting situations. The problem is they freeze up.” Morgan stressed the importance of training, maintaining and recognizing one’s personal boundaries.
Paskvich, Morgan’s husband teaches the law portion of the course. Paskvich is a NRA certified pistol instructor, Arkansas State Police certified CHCL instructor and NRA certified Range Safety Officer. You can access the Arkansas Concealed Handgun Carry Licensing law in its entirety HERE.
Another element unique to Morgan’s range is the simulation technology. Morgan’s wall screen creates a virtual reality training scenario for her students. It also allows the student to engage in verbal interaction with the perpetrator with random reactions. For example, one simulation scenario has the student inside of a school building with an active shooter. The versatile simulator is one piece of technology that brings people to the range from all over the country.
After each student trains on the simulator they are sent over to the live firing range
