Dr. George Gaines is the Owner of Gaines Concealed Carry and our July 2019 Member of the Month. Dr. Gaines is the lead instructor with a long list of credentials, licenses, and certifications from the Red Cross and the Academy for Advanced Homeland Security Training to the NRA and US Concealed Carry Association. Most important of all, he’s a member of our Cherokee County Chamber of Commerce.
George has been living here in North Carolina for just over a year, enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery. You’ll see him out and about at our Chamber AfterHours, meeting new folks. While he may be new to our community, he has been providing firearms training to students of all levels for over 6 years after his cousin Henry got him back into competitive shooting. He loves to teach others about gun safety, stressing that a gun is a tool that everyone must learn to use safely.
If you currently have your concealed carry permit and interested in becoming a USCCA Training Counselor, Dr. George offers this and additional training opportunities. If you get a chance, sit down and enjoy a slice of pizza and red wine as you chat about all that he offers at Gaines Concealed Carry and his past experiences in education. Better yet, join us at our AfterHours and get to know many of our members!
