Welcome to Gabriel Pistol Range, owned and operated by Chuck Melki.  Chuck is a former police officer and police chief.  Chuck worked for the Genessee County Sheriff's Department in the undercover narcotics division, F.A.N.G, F.B.I. gang task force and Detectives bureau.  After retiring from the Sheriff's Department, Chuck was the Chief of Police in Clayton township for 7 years.  At Gabriel Pistol Range we emphasize in real life, real scenario firearms training.  Michigan law requires you to be licensed to carry a concealed pistol but we offer much more than the just required CPL class.  Chuck emphasizes and specializes in actual firearms training, not just a cookie cutter class.  If you are interested in CPL certification or firearms training, you've come to the right place.
