I enjoyed the Basic Pistol class and learned so much! I also liked how the instructors spent time after class to answer all my questions. I can't wait to get home and buy my first gun!

Wow, wow, wow!! I haven't taken any training since I got my CCW six years ago. I had no idea how much I didn't know until attending this class. I feel safer already!

Just bought a new AR-15 a couple of months before attending your class. I learned so much in the short time I was there and liked that my son could learn right along with me.
