Testimonials

We are a husband and wife team. We have learned the confidence to handle our firearms. The Laser Simulation Course & Self Defense was like being there in real life, great experience.    
Kim B. Frank B.
The training was some of the best that I ever received. Michael, Greg and Tina are Great! The training on the laser simulator was extremely helpful.    
Debbie E.
I have had an extraordinary experience in my training class, because I came with no experience in firearms. The training that I have received has given me the confidence needed to be a conceal firearm carrier. The theory of the class was excellent.
Lillie M.
The training is particularly essential for women to give them the basic skills for handling a firearm. It’s all about self-defense in these changing times.
Hilda W.
Michael & Tina are great instructors. They’ve created a comfortable learning environment for me and my wife. I would recommend this class to everyone. Keep up the great work!
