Highly satisfied with the training and course offerings. Great staff and rang instructors. Well worth the money. Will definitely be back for some additional training. Also, the firearm sampler package at the range is hands down the cheapest way to test such a wide variety of handguns in one range visit. Would recommend to anyone interested.

This class was absolutely freaking AMAZING!! The information given is taught so that everyone is able to understand it, they tell you things you would never think you’d need to know and also educate you more on the things you think you know. The practice shooting is so thought out and comforting that everyone that was terrified of shooting a gun came out happy and smiling because of how much of a great time we were having! 10/10 would recommend!
