The CCW training at Armed2Defend exceeded my expectations. The staff and Instructors were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. In addition, the curriculum was relevant and engaging.

I would recommend this class to anyone who is a first-time gun owner. All my questions were answered, I was put at ease, the class was conducted in a professional manner with excellent training materials and videos. Kevin and his staff were professional and enthusiastic regarding the successful completion of the class and all the steps involved in safe gun ownership, handling and obtaining a CCW. I appreciated the patience that was shown to me during class and first-time exposure to a firing range. After taking the class I feel confident that I would be able to do whatever was required during an actual emergency or threat because situations (and laws) that I had never considered were brought up discussed and well covered during this class. Many thanks to Kevin Sadeski his family and staff. Armed 2Defend is a first-class operation.

The concealed carry class was engaging and informative for a complete novice like myself. The experience at the range was great, too, especially the opportunity to try a wide variety of guns. Instructors were patient and professional. Highly recommend.
23:54 30 Sep 19
Great day of learning the rules and laws for conceal carrying. This class was filled with great knowledge when it came to conceal carrying and firing a weapon. It would make you think twice before you plan to pull the trigger. I recommend taking this class!!

Kevin and his team are very professional and helpful. I learned quite a bit about carrying concealed and would highly recommend them for the training to receive your ccw license
19:43 26 Sep 19
My husband and I took this class recently. I have never handled a gun so, my goal was to learn as much as I could about gun safety and get some experience with shooting a gun. The class was very informative, the instructors were awesome, and my husband and I were very impressed overall. We will be looking to take advantage of their other offerings!
11:51 24 Sep 19
I work weekends and almost every range were teaching on the weekends. I was out of my time for Vacation etc to use. This range does not easily come up when you Google. After Googling for several days I came across this Range. I thought it was online by the name but it was in class. It was in a weekday Thursday which is my off day. I went there and the first person I met is his wife who is energetic and she loves guns. The whole family was very welcoming. Kevin a handsome guy was awesome in teaching the material and knowledge he held. I love you Kevin. This one place is highly recommended. I felt so comfortable being LGBT as they are so welcoming.
20:11 22 Sep 19
I was always afraid of guns but Armed2Defend instructors changed my perspectives about guns. It was awesome class and I gained language. Thanks to Kevin, Staci, Alisha and all the instructors.
16:46 22 Sep 19
Excellent class!! As an Army war veteran, I was surprised to see so many veterans in the class. The instructors were very friendly and knowledgeable on the subjects being taught. I highly recommend the class. Also, I highly recommend paying the extra $30 to shoot the many weapons that they have available. Good job guys!
11:57 20 Sep 19
20:44 19 Sep 19
Had my CC training there and was so pleased I took my Grandson who also did excellent. ABSOLUTELY NO ISSUES RECEIVING CC PERMIT AND CONTINUE TO TAKE TRAINING WHEN I AM ABLE. EXCELLENT INSTRUCTORS AND FACILITIES.
17:05 18 Sep 19
Outstanding class taught by a crew of very knowledgeable instructors!
15:55 16 Sep 19
All of the staff are very kind, helpful, and informative. Kevin and his wife keep the material fun and interesting, which is important for a full day in class. I can honestly not come up with one complaint in my experience. Will most definitely become a repeat customer. Keep up the great work!
12:20 16 Sep 19
Well put together; kind people yet serious and passionate about what they do and helping people learn to shoot and shoot well; comfortable environment; thoroughly explained what was going on; worth it.

My wife and I went through the armed to defend conceal carry class. We were both very impressed with the professionalism of all the instructors and staff the admin staff handled and managed all paperwork needed and made sure we we prepared for the class all the instructors were outstanding the materials were taught with clarity and precision. The shooting range was outstanding with safety the most important topic. We are proud to give a 5STAR rating to the professional organization

Kevin is great. I am all about safety and education. This program was spot on.
18:08 15 Aug 19
00:47 15 Aug 19
Instructors were knowledgeable and answered all questions. The class was a mix of people attending. From the beginners to the well versed in gun handling. However all learned and benefited from the class. IMO, we had plenty of range time before test that was well supervised and safe for all. Glad I choose Ared2Defend.

Not you average hours at the range, you learn how to draw from a holster quickly and get your target acquired fast. Takes you out of your comfort zone and you walk away feeling like you can handle your gun better.
03:41 01 Aug 19
12:36 30 Jul 19
My wife and I attended the class she was a beginner and i was a little more advanced but the class helped us both a great deal. You really don't realize what you don't know until you take a course like this. It is very informative, professional and safe group of trainers. I would recommend any and everyone to take their course.
12:43 29 Jul 19
Took the course several years ago and found them to be very thorough and knowledgeable in every aspect of gun handling safety and training.
21:35 28 Jul 19
Great place to get your ccw. I got Ohio plus Florida and Arizona carry license. Very informative and good instructors.

Great price, great instructors, great experience. I was 8 months pregnant when I took the CCW class and couldn’t do the shooting portion at that time, but they worked with me and let me make it up at a later date. Thankful for all the A2D staff for their hard work!
19:57 19 Jul 19
Well taught class and was very informative...
18:50 19 Jul 19
12:23 17 Jul 19
My brother signed me up for the class as a birthday gift! My brother and I attended our class April 27th 2019 and had a wonderful experience. The staff was kind, professional, involved, educated and fun. We have recommended all of our friends and family to Armed2defend. We were so happy we went them.
16:03 16 Jul 19
I took a concealed carry course and purchased the package to try out different models of handguns/firearms. The class was informative and the chance to feel what worked for me was perfect for making a decision to purchase a pewpew
15:43 12 Jul 19
It was a scary experience being around all those guns but the staff did a good job of keeping everybody cool

Armed2Defend is an established Concealed Carry training company that has successfully trained many students of all levels of experience. Most of the instructors are military veterans with many years of experience. The range portion is well organized and the instructors enjoy working with the students and ensuring the students get what they need to handle a firearm safely and with confidence.
19:32 07 Jul 19
I recieved my training for CCW instructor at Amed2Defend a few years back which has in turn enabled me to train many Ohio Patriots to carry in self defense including a class with just over 100 students. The instructors were very professional and knowledgeable and conducted an awesome atmosphere to learn a lot. I would recommend this group highly!

I took the Concealed Carry Class several years, ago. It was a great learning experience. The instructors treated us kindly and courteously. The range was a great experience. I do not understand how foolishly our state legislature is acting in it's proposal to give "carte blanche" authority to Ohio residents to carry without training and without full understanding of the law. More recently, I sent my wife and daughter to your school.
18:42 27 Jun 19
I found the experience to be very professional and informative. The instructors were great and took time with my wife as she had very little experience on a formal setting range. The classroom time was spot on and the legal information great. I would recommend Armed2Defend to anyone serious about how to defend yourself legally.
23:42 26 Jun 19
Great class and great instructors.
14:06 25 Jun 19
I've been a gun owner and hunter all my life, but I learned so much from Kevin and his instructors in the CCW course. It helped me correct some of those 'old' habits that I'd grown up with. This organization is high quality, and worthy of utmost respect.
13:31 20 Jun 19
educators are patient with beginners.humorous and kind....obvious dedication and enjoyment of teaching others to be safe, competent, and prepared. treat every one with the same dignity, respect, consideration, humility, and humor. encouraged participation makes class fun and welcoming and you'll want it to be your "defense learning home". worth every penny.
20:57 19 Jun 19
Was the best Class I've ever been so far.

Spent the day with my Daughter NRA Pistol cerificatiom course. The course was well done from Legal information to basic Pistol training. Staff was friendly and well trained both in the classroom. And on the range. Would recommend this course to anyone looking to get the CCW.
03:18 15 Jun 19

20:00 13 Jun 19
01:04 10 Jun 19
I highly recommend using Armed2Defend for the CCW training requirement. The classroom and range instruction are high quality. Very knowledgeable trainers!
00:47 09 Jun 19
Class was very enjoyable and range was a blast. Instructors were informative and had really approachable way about them. It is still mostly class time so you sit most of the day but they have figured out a way to make it enjoyable and fun.No matter what, you will walk out feeling like you learned what you are supposed to know and feel that you enjoyed yourself while doing it. I will be going back for some of their other classes to higher my education and train up more.
01:00 07 Jun 19
Class was entertaining and very informative! The Instructors we’re also very friendly and helpful T the shooting range. I would highly recommend Armed2defend to obtain your CCW!
21:35 04 Jun 19
Great place to take your CHL class. Great instructors who are willing to help and teach everything you need to know about everyday carry to what can/could happen if a self defense situation occurs.
20:48 03 Jun 19
Me and my wife was so excited to get our ccw class done on a week day and the instructors gave great knowledge from beginning to end. The attorney part helped me a lot.. Give me a much better understanding of the ccw laws. Price was very affordable and would definitely recommend this class to my friends and family...

Armed2Defend is one of best firms that train on carry concealed as well as all NRA firearms levels as well as Range officers and Safety officers. Their private rang is a nice facility to shoot at and their instructors have th patience of Job. Excellent Central Ohio facility and enterprise. When completing the CCW class and applying for the permit, they take the extra step of helping you secure one for AZ (for Ohio residents) so you can carry legally in all States that allow it and don't have to worry about Ohio having reciprocity. Kevin and his team are the best.
04:08 10 May 19
Great ccw classes the instructors are very helpful and patient with all different levels of experience. The range that they have is also great. I recommend all who ask to use armed2defend. I have not had an opportunity to take advantage of the other classes that are available but from what I see as I follow them is very good so I recommend that if you want a great program and feel confident in your gun handling skills to take any if not all of the courses available. The more you learn and practice the better prepared you will be if you should need to protect yourself and family. I thank you A2D for the knowledge and I will continue to train when I get to AZ.
23:27 08 May 19
The most professional and thorough CCW classes out there. Kevin and the crew teach you everything you need to know and things you didn’t know you needed to know! Highly recommend!
22:50 08 May 19
My wife and I took the Armed2Defend Concealed Carry course on the recommendation of a friend and we are very happy we did. The class was conducted in a professional manner and we were encouraged to participate with questions and comments. The use of the private range was a plus and we encourage anyone contemplating taking a Concealed Carry course or other firearms skills classes to contact Armed2Defend.
18:26 08 May 19
Very professional and thorough instruction. Safe and efficient range facility. Highly recommend this company for new and experienced shooters.
16:46 07 May 19
I've been a tin can and target shooter since I was 10 and you pickup a lot of unsafe bad habits in that time. It took Armed2Defend to point them out and show me the correct ways. The experience without doubt made me a safer and batter gun owner and shot. Thank you.
19:58 06 May 19
Great staff. Great environment. Great experience all the way around. Would recommend as the only choice in Central Ohio!

Words cannot express my gratitude for this awesome team of instructors. Everyone was professional and extremely safe. The amount of information and knowledge given and offered is worth far more than the asking price. I couldn’t have chosen a better group of instructors to teach me.

13:55 10 Mar 19
the knowledge and presentation was amazing. it all really helped me to get a better understanding. I really enjoyed Stacy and his Jokes. that made it more fun easy to follow. My instructor was super helpful in understanding the workings of my gun and how to better handle it properly and safely. I am pleased though i wish i had a little more one on one time. Everything was great though. Keep it up. I will recommend you guys all day!
02:24 10 Mar 19
Took the class with Kevin before he even had the covered range, 8 years ago! He was great then and has only gotten bigger and better. Had the honor of watching my Son follow in my footsteps and take the class today. Watching Jeff Scudder’s intermediate range facilitation was awesome! Excellent work and Highly Recommend! In fact, looking for advance training right after this review!
13:28 09 Mar 19
Great bunch of people! Lots of different trainings available. Jeff Scudder is one of the Lead Defensive Instructors, in my opinion he might be one of the best in the country! By the time you leave your session--you retain the phenomenal training techniques! Life Changing.
19:41 08 Mar 19
The instructors were great. Answered any and all questions, gave very valuable information. They take gun safety very serious which is important. Overall great experience i will always recommend.
14:17 08 Mar 19

I loved this class it was very informative and the people were helpful and lunch was great 😜but aside from that it really helped me be more comfortable with my gun and after the class when you go the the gun range there gun range it was just as good and the people there were just as helpful...... I loved it and I would definitely recommend them
01:59 08 Mar 19
Very well organized, no wasted time at all. Classes are very informative and the time goes past quickly. But my favorite part of the day was the range time. The instructor had plenty of tips and insight. They also had some great practice drills for future range time. I highly recommend Armed2defend and will go back for more classes in the future.
01:52 08 Mar 19
23:55 07 Mar 19

Took the ccw class today with Armed 2 Defend and I couldn’t suggest any one better love the class and how open eared they are and will to take all questions and make sure we not only know the safety of concealing a weapon but knowing your rights and what todo if you have use your firearms
19:57 04 Mar 19
The instructors were very informative. They do a great job of keeping the mood light and somewhat entertaining. And the talk from Ken the Attourney is very good. Not to mention the sheriffs office said they are one of the best.
23:36 27 Feb 19
I loved the class! Great people! Great experience!
23:24 24 Feb 19
Excellent program with emphasis on legal responsibilities.
21:58 24 Feb 19
My husband and I both took our class yesterday. The instructors are amazing. It's not some boring fall asleep class. The added aspect of a presentation from a lawyer who knows Ohio firearm laws AND is an NRA instructor is a great bonus. Thank you Stacy and Glenn for making our experience a good one and answering our questions and being patient with us!
20:20 23 Feb 19
There are good people and good companies I recommend this armed2defend and I was fun
14:41 20 Feb 19
Friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable that will deliver a great experience!
18:55 17 Feb 19
Great training, very thorough. Can't beat the price for what you receive. Instructors are very knowledgeable and helpful. Will be coming back for advanced training. Kevin and his staff are awesome.
18:35 17 Feb 19
Great class. Great instruction. Definitely want to get more instruction and take more classes.
15:46 17 Feb 19
It was very good choice going to themFor my ccw. They are polite and they know what they doing.
01:17 07 Feb 19
Great atmosphere and safe throughout. They had enough instruction for one on one learning. Great job guys!
23:49 06 Feb 19
Small class on a weekday made it very personal and friendly. I had a good time!
05:31 22 Jan 19
Great instructor an very knowledgeable!
19:03 20 Jan 19
Very knowledgeable instructors. The instructor has greatly interacted with all the students at the range and classroom. Great for beginner to expert. The drive to the range is short. The range nice and covered and pretty warm considering it was just covered range. You will laugh, learn and meet great people and learn so much. One of the few classes that have an attorney to teach you the laws.
13:23 20 Jan 19
Fun class, easy to understand, no pressure, very relaxed very knowledgable of their training, patient, friendy, and affordable price.
19:26 14 Jan 19
It is worth the money to attain knowledge of the rules and ramifications of conceal and carry law also the shooting range time was fun. Glad I did this.
01:37 10 Jan 19
19:55 04 Jan 19
Kevin and his staff are amazing. He is very knowledgeable on giving you the right info so that you feel safe and stay out out trouble. They have a great attorney that comes in and speaks for a hour to info you of the dos and donts. Would definetly recommend anyone looking to getting der CCW to come here. Not to mention if you go to franklin county sheriff to get your licence the staff knows kevin and speaks highly of him....
22:37 31 Dec 18
My wife, mother-in-law and myself all greatly enjoyed the class and the day. We were especially happy with attorney Ken's law presentation. He makes you think about things most won't realize are factors in self-defense with a weapon. Stacy was entertaining as heck in the classroom and outstanding on the range. I feel like I learned a lot in both the lecture and especially on the range.For anyone considering the course, if you have your own firearm, bring it! If you are familiar with it, you can get the "Intermediate Instruction" instead of the beginner. If you don't own one, they'll provide one for you that is easy to handle. It's a great first step in learning what you must do to save your own life. I am now looking into the other classes they have to offer so I can further improve my self-defense abilities!Again, I truly enjoyed the class, and appreciate the effort Armed2Defend has put into making the process of getting the CHL as smooth and pain-free as possible.

So nice people thank you so much

One of the best handgun courses ever!!! The instructors are very knowledgeable

Outstanding training. Legal instruction by Attorney who knows the ccw law.

I took the CCW class almost two years ago. Since then, my wife and two of our friends have taken the class as well. I have and will continue to recommend Armed2Defend to anyone interested in getting their CCW. As others have mentioned, Ken's legal presentation is top notch and helps to get you in the right mindset for carrying on a regular basis. He hits a lot of the main areas that get people into trouble. The entire staff of trainers and range officers were very friendly and helpful.If you look hard enough you 'might' find a class cheaper somewhere else, or maybe somebody your buddy's uncle's friend knows said he'd certify you cheap. Why skimp on something so important? I doubt you will find better training anywhere in central Ohio even if you paid more. The state requires 12 hours of instruction, so you might as well make it count. You will learn something regardless of your experience level. The legal presentation alone is worth the price.

Awesome experience! Would definitely recommend taking your CCW class at Armed2Defend or any of there other classes. Very friendly and experienced instructors.

I took my mom for her 60th birthday present this past July☺ The worlds getting a little crazier everyday..got to make sure she is safe!My 25 year old daughter is next!
16:42 06 Nov 18

21:10 02 Nov 18
I have taken both the concealed carry course and the NRA pistol qualification course. The instructors have always been professional and always strive for a safe fun experience for all shooters. I highly recommend this program for anyone looking to get a ccw or just tightening your shooting groups.

14:51 26 Aug 18
Outstanding CCW Course and Instructors.
09:38 23 Aug 18

It was a great class I would recommend it to anyone!
22:52 04 Aug 18
Good instructors. Helpful when it comes to questions. Learned a lot of new things on the legal and shooting portions. Definitely would recommend.
01:53 29 Jul 18
13:55 25 Jul 18
Great class, best thing is they have staff for each part of the process. They have a class instructor, legal expert, and guys on the range. This set up is great due to the fact that you don't have some jack of all trades trying to do it all.
01:22 25 Jul 18
This class is great for anyone! I took this class with no experience with firearms at all and I feel a lot more comfortable and knowledgeable. The instructors were very informative and made the experience very fun. I am look f forward to taking more classes on firearms in the near future.

Very professional and very helpful. I was nervous about attending this since I have no experience with a firearm at all. I had a great time and feel more comfortable with a gun now and will continue to take classes on defense with a firearm.
16:34 09 Jul 18
First impression’s mean a lot... I will never forget this one!!!
03:46 09 Jul 18
Top notch instruction! I highly recommend this company. I took my CCW class through them and then followed up and joined a women’s pistol group once a month. I absolutely love it!!!
01:35 08 Jul 18
Very professional and it was a very fun class. I LOVED the fact that they were very BIG on safety, especially since this was my first time using and firing a firearm. They make sure that you are comfortable and confident while handling the firearm and that your aim is on point. Definitely recommend this course!!!

I just finished the basic pistol class needed for a CHL and it was amazing. The instructors were so helpful and answered all questions that I had (no matter how silly they were). The range instructors were just as awesome and made me feel very comfortable with shooting (this was only my third time shooting a gun). I highly recommend buying the pistol sampler package for anyone who is looking into buying their own hand gun. It’s only $35 and I got to shoot about 18 different guns to see what I liked and didn’t like. I feel much more confident about going and purchasing a firearm now that I have an idea about how specific ones shoot. I can’t wait to try one of their Women’s Pistol Group this summer!
17:53 19 Jun 18
Stacey was fantastic in class and at the range. If you have had some training with your gun I highly recommend doing the intermediate shooting during the shooting portion of the concealed carry training it is fun, you get a good training on reacting fast and being put under pressure by the instructor. Great experience getting the glasses done plus it’s a great price compared to the other places.
01:53 14 Jun 18
Best class and people you can find. (and they have a working German Shepard thats to die for...Beautiful dog! ) Top quality people here.....

Had a great class yesterday. They really take the time to go through it all. The instructors are great and I gained a lot of information from this class. If you are new to the world of shooting they will help you get started. Your intermediate they will push you on the Range for you to feel what it's like to shoot under stress. For you new people just remember the only dumb question is the one not asked because they will give you an answer to any of them.

Excellent instruction material, very friendly and knowledgeable instructors, extremely safe range. The class was large, but there were more than enough range instructors to provide personal attention. No wonder Armed2Defend is top rated! I'm so glad my husband and I chose them to get our CHL certificate. We both had a great time!
16:03 28 Apr 18
I attended the Armed2Defend carry class in March of '18. Signup and payment online was painless. Class availability was also plentiful with multiple dates open. Upon arrival the day got off to a good start. My personal folder was prepared with all of my class materials. Instructors took our "passport" photographs prior to class beginning and had them printed for us by the end of the day. Instructors were knowledgeable and did a nice jobof keeping the class moving. The classroom material is basic and will be 2nd nature if you're at all familiar with handguns. The legal portion of the class was informative but unfortunately for us the lawyer was recovering from an injury and we watched a recording of a prior session. Good information also provided around USCCA, NRA, and handgun accessories (safes, holsters, etc). I had the pleasure of shooting at the range under the direction of Jeff Scudder and he was top notch!! Jeff's attn to detail and instruction was above and beyond. He led the "advanced" shooters and was intense, thorough, and extremely personable. I'd recommend these guys if you're in the market for getting your certificate for a concealed handgun permit. Painless process and well organized from beginning to end.

The instructors took their time to ensure I was ready. So glad I chose Amrmed2defend as I'm armed with all the information needed for my CHL.
01:47 10 Apr 18
Had a great time...great instructors and staff with a lot of knowledge...and the law portion was a good benefit of the class...will refer other people...thanks for the experience!!!
01:12 10 Apr 18
Had a great time taking this class. Kevin was a great teacher both in the classroom and on the range. Kevin took time at the range to work with me to help correct some trigger pull issues I was having. Was going low left all day and after 15 minutes with him I was hitting center. Thank you so much to the whole staff at Armed2Defend and especially to Kevin!

Had a great experience here and hope to come back for more classes! They were very informative and made the class fun! I will definitely be recommending my friends and family to come here.
02:17 22 Mar 18
It was my wife's first time ever shooting a pistol and the staff made her feel safe and comfortable. The class was educational even for experienced shooters like myself and you can't beat the price.

11:22 14 Mar 18
My girlfriend and I had a great time in this class! She is a beginner and I’ve been around guns for the majority of my life however we both were able to learn a lot and have fun while doing it. The staff maintains a responsible positive attitude towards the entire process but is not over barring and allows for the student to learn. On top of all that it’s priced very well for the training and for the attention you will receive. 5/5
03:36 14 Mar 18
Fantastic instructors! Great class! Can't thank them enough!
03:29 14 Mar 18
Absolutely amazing. Great people full of knowledge and amazing instructors at the range. I highly suggest Armed2Defend.
03:28 13 Mar 18
Awesome instructors and a great class to take. great law portion as well which isn't standard for most CCW classes. Highly recommend them if your interested in getting your permit. I look forward to going to Kevin to further my training with some of his other classes he offers as well
22:57 11 Mar 18
I took my class in 2015 and all of the instructors took the training very seroius, in making sure everyone in the class, had the proper training and understand of seriousness, of the responsibility and liability of handling and carrying a loaded gun! I appreciate all the training each instructor provided, while taking the cousre! I'd also like to thank Kevin as the onwner of Armed2Defend, for taking such a personal and serious interest, with every individual in the class! Keep up the great work guys, in providing and helping to protect our 2nd right amendment! Thanks, Don Jarrell
04:05 11 Mar 18
Excellent place to train, excellent place to take advanced training along with taking the NRA marksmanship program. They have an informed attorney teach part of the CC class. A real tangible asset to understand how the law in Ohio works! Kevin and company are the best at what they do!
03:06 11 Mar 18
Great staff and instructors . I would suggest this course to anyone seeking their ccw
21:19 08 Mar 18
Took the course last year. Super organized and stays on topic! Very informative from all angles to include commentary from an Attorney! Highly recommend! 5/5! My only comment/concern would be the amount of cell phone usage while on the range...eyes and mind should focused on only one thing...just my humble opinion and did not detract from my own experience...
13:58 05 Mar 18
I just took my class 3/3/18 and it was a great time and experience again I would do it over and over again also will suggest it to as many people as possible. Thanks Ken 👍👍👍👍👍 I give it a five star and five thumbs up........

Took Kevin's class with my son, both of us are experienced shooters. Kevin's staff are an excellent group of professional's. He gives you all you need to pass the CCL test and the range guys are first rate. Safety is first priority, bar none. You are not safe, you WILL be corrected. The range officer (Stan) in my group was stellar. Excellent advice and no nonsense. Kevin has a First rate attorney that has a long history defending firearm ownership (Ken Hanson) present a basic understanding of CCL & firearms law. It is very informative and you NEED to pay attention, as it is the beginning of understanding the responsibility of CCW. He keeps it interesting and can answer anything. Kevin teaches basics for the beginner, up to advanced training to continue improving how to safely handle a firearm. Overall, wish I could give him 6 or 7 stars. A no frills, very professional firearms training instructor, who I would highly recommend.
