This was a great class experience and the range instructors are very knowledgeable and skilled. They show you exactly how to correct any errors you may have. It’s a great way to spend a day and get a wonderful experience.

These people do it right! They were so helpful, great at communicating the information prior to the class, and presented the information in a fun and cohesive way. I would highly recommend Armed2Defend. They go above and beyond and really care about what they are teaching.

The class was great. The material was taught in a manner that was very easy to understand no matter your level of knowledge on guns or the laws surrounding them was. Jamie was my instructor at the range and he was beyond GREAT! He helped me become very comfortable with shooting and my gun in our time at the range. If I ever had to take the class again I’d come back. For now I’m just giving the class away as Christmas gift.

The CCW training at Armed2Defend exceeded my expectations. I would absolutely recommend anyone wanting their CCWS to join a session at A2D!!!! what a wonderful staff and the range officer (he’s a marine ) he was so hopeful and helped me to become a better shooter. Thank you all very much I had a blast and will recommend anyone I can to come on out !!

Kevin and Armed2Defend were recommended to me for NRA Basic Pistol Instructor Training and I'm glad I attended. Great job by Kevin, Stacy, and the other instructors. Their training is 1st class and I too now would recommend them for any level of training.

It was really fun getting my license to carry a weapon test was kind of easy if you pay attention and do what you’re supposed to do and then the range was pretty awesome now you feel safer for you and your family have all the things that’s happening anymore in this world it was great and the instructors was pretty awesome They knew what they was talking about and if you needed help they helped you.
