Disappointed with the lack of actual gun training in your CCW class?


Amy, Richard

I wanted to thank both of you for your time and hospitality yesterday. Rich, you went above and beyond spending almost 5 hours with Nick and I. I feel 1000% better about being a gun owner today than I did yesterday. The safety instruction was outstanding. Nick and I had a blast shooting and look forward to doing it again.. Enjoy the rest of the break…

we spend a lot of time educating shooters in range safety and etiquette.
