I had my private lesson with Ron today. Very knowledgeable and professional. He not only taught me about how to handle a handgun but also was great at explaining the do 's and dont's and the importance of gun safety. I would recommend Ron highly for his knowledge and great teaching methods with practical real life examples.

I had a new gun owner private lesson with Ron. He is an extremely experienced professional who not only covered everything from gun safety to field stripping to how to shoot. But more than that, Ron was able to make his points with great analogies that really make an impression. And finally, he constantly mixed in the mental aspect of defensive shooting. I was totally impressed with the session and would recommend Ron to anyone who desires any level of shooting training.

My wife and I had a private session with Ron yesterday. As new gun owners this the best investment we could have made. Ron is an expert who teaches you safety first and the proper handling of our guns. We gained knowledge and confidence working with Ron. We look forward to taking another training session with Ron in the near future.

I would recommend Ron’s course for anyone wanting to learn gun safety. The lesson was highly informative and the information he gave was invaluable. After having this first course which is just a beginner’s lesson, I feel confident and comfortable handling my weapon. My husband and I were very satisfied and will be using Ron in the future. If you are looking for someone with tremendous experience and imparts his information in a very friendly, funny, and helpful manner, Ron is your guy. Thank you very much!

My wife and I (both first time gun owners) had a private lesson with Ron last Friday. Found him to be extremely knowledgeable with special focus on safety. Clear, concise with a great sense of humor. He put us right at ease and is a great teacher.

Excellent course! I attended the October 10 Women's course and it was fantastic! It is a crawl, walk, run course to familiarize oneself with your weapon and then learn the basics on shooting. You have to like "in your face" training but it was very much appreciated. It was exactly what I needed. I learned so much and look forward to taking this training further. Highly recommend this class. Thanks Ron and Kat.

As a new gun owner, I had read the manual but still felt unqualified to begin working safely and properly with the weapon. In a superb two-hour private session, Ron put me at ease, explained the fundamentals, and guided ME through practice loading, safe handling, stance, grip, aim, dry firing, and field stripping the pistol. Hands on, not lecture. He illustrated key principles with examples from his extensive experience. As a bonus, he is a really personable guy who can stay friendly and focused at the same time! Now I am knowledgeable and confident enough to practice my skills. I highly recommend Ron to anyone seeking professional firearm training. I myself will be back!

Ron did an amazing job on a 4-hour private training session for two people. The lesson was jamb packed with important information, yet Ron was able to keep it light and humorous when encouraging results. He kept the material relevant, and smoothly followed through from safety, to sight picture, grip, trigger control, stance, dry fire, live fire, mental preparation, and legality. I left the training excited about the lessons I had learned and ready to practice on my own. I am already planning my next class with Ron!

I attended the September 5th Training. I truly enjoyed it. Ron, Kathleen & Josh all demonstrated the do's & dont's of properly handling a firearm. Also, what to do if a medical situation occurred. They helped me to learn my strengths and what U need to improve on. I am definitely going to practice before taking the next level. Other places were charging way more for only 2 to 3 hours. I got 8 hours for way better price. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to take this class or any other class (if they have more experience than me).

Thank you guys!

My wife and I just completed the introductory course with Ron and it far exceeded our expectations. Ron has the unique ability to bring together his 30 plus years of experience, attention to detail, and humor in a way that positively engages the first-time shooter. Since I never even held a gun before, I was nervous. However, Ron was patient, took his time, and explained everything. Before I knew it, I was laughing, having a great time, and even enjoyed it when he was pushing me (politely) to do better. Combine all that with Ron relating what he teaches to real-life situations (This is not just target practice for fun.), and you have an empowering experience which I believe can not be matched anywhere else.
