Awesome classes. Great instructors. Great environment for learning.  -GL

Thank you for setting up the class. I was unsure how it would go, but I must say that I could not have been happier with what training and education I received during the 16 hour concealed carry class. Josh was incredibly helpful in the legal/classroom side on Saturday. The amount of information presented was crazy, but it was presented in such a way that we were not overloaded with facts and laws. He also seemed to be able to tie many of the legal aspects of this program to actual life instances and true stories so that we had a real-world situation to tie things to. The 8 hours scheduled on Sunday was top notch. After finishing the classroom part, the range time was what actually tied everything in for me. Your approach to defensive shooting has opened my eyes to what it means to truly be a defensive shooter. I really enjoyed the drills that you used to instruct us. They took a more proactive approach to situations that will help us should a situation arise where this training is needed. Standing and shooting at stationary targets is a great tool to get familiar with your pistol, but interaction with shooting, split second decision making and target engagement is the only way to fully understand what it might be like to be in this unfortunate situation. I feel that I am a much better informed shooter now and have the basic knowledge to practice correct techniques and further build on these so I am more prepared to protect myself and family in the future. 
Thanks again for what you do and I look forward to many more range sessions with you in the future.  -BMS
