If you are reading this, do yourself a favor and pull the theoretical trigger on it, immediately!!! Kevin and Alisha are a power couple force to be reckoned with! Best CCW courses I could have ever hoped for. I did all three modules through ZOOM with them and they are the kindest, cutest, most patient people i've met. They always stayed after the "class" to answer questions and clarify anything. The quizzes are straightforward and they took my feedback on the last one and hopefully adjusted accordingly. I had the pleasure of having Kevin as my instructor at the range and It was on the 4th of July so we even got to try some neat toys for free! I tried the pistol sampler even though i have my ideal concealed carry firearm, and I really enjoyed how they had it laid out, (even though i didn't get to shoot one because it "broke"). I met Kevin's dad also and you could tell he was a real old school gamgster in his day. I just received my CHL yesterday thanks to these guys.. If you're still reading just do yourself a favor and take this course. It's the best bang for your buck and you won't regret meeting these awesome individuals. I will be recommending as well as directing all of my applicable business towards them. Anyone who rates this course negatively is a true biggot and trust me, there ARE people who just want to watch the world burn.

This was my first experience taking a firearms class after the Plandemic. They executed the ZOOM meetings flawlessly, but the real fun was at the range. I LOVE how they are constantly emphasizing SAFETY from the very beginning. The crew running this show is top-notch! I highly recommend Armed2Defend, I'll be taking more classes here!
