This class is a must for any beginner or experienced person interested in learning how to defend their home, family, and themselves. The instructors have a wealth of training and experience from both law enforcement and military training. I felt secure and safe throughout the entire class. Overall great class!

Alan did a great job helping me with the firearm and making sure I was safe with it. I was uncomfortable at first, but Alan and Lee made sure I was doing everything right and then I felt comfortable with the firearm. Lee did a good job at explaining everything.
