Instructors were great! Funny but serious about teaching proper and safe use of a handgun. My wife and I learned a lot and will attend future classes.

Great class, learned a lot and I am confident owning a pistol after the range training! Instructors are very knowledgeable and answered all the questions I had.

Eric and Don are so informative and have extensive knowledge. They did a great job of presenting and instructing on gun laws, gun safety and everything in between while keeping us all engaged and interested. They handled the range time effectively and efficiently and taught us all so much alongside CJ and John!

Great course for beginners; learned appropriate gun safety, laws, and some technical skills. Unfortunately NYS mandates the hours requirement; in my opinion all info and range time could be completed in a 1 day course.

Ryan Feb 26, 2023

Great instruction. I had no experience and was anxious about handling the gun. However, the instruction and exercises leading up to live fire were through and built my confidence quickly. By the time we got to firing I felt very comfortable handling the firearm.

Robert Feb 26, 2023

Was a little frustrated with the new requirements under NY law, however this course and it’s instructors were phenomenal. 100% worth it and I now think anyone owning firearms should definitely take this for everyones saftey.
