    Not sure about Clarion, but if your up for a drive Erie has a good place for training. Bob's Gun Shop offers several classes. I know one of them is a defensive handgun use. If you want more, they also have the act 235 training. The act 235 training is held at their leathal weapons training academy. http://www.lethalweaponstraining.com/pa-act-235.html

    Clarion is kind of in the middle but not really near anything. If you can drive comfortably to Pittsburgh, you have:

    ...which has all the classes you need to get squared away (in fact, I believe they have exactly what you asked for, a home defense type class). Contact PAFOA members TonyF or (IIRC) PeteG for details.

    About the same distance away is the range in Hollidaysburg:

    ...which is a fine facility and has brought in training groups.

    There really isn't anything of the type in this area. You'll have to go to Pittsburgh or Erie areas for something like that.

    +1 on Mr. Farnam's classes. He's a knowledgeable firearm instructor who takes his tradecraft seriously. I took his Basic/Intermediate Pistol class, and am looking forward to taking the Advanced class when it swings through the area. IMHO, his class was well worth the money.
