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.

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!!

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.

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!
