SAFE, PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE, PATIENT.
I am looking forward to working with Dave In the future.~Jan
In January 2013 our training with Dave was initiated. Dave began the course by covering firearm responsibilities, firearm safety, and handgun fundamentals. Safety and responsibilities were basic principles continually repeated throughout the course. Other topics discussed included personal protection inside and outside the home, self-defense, legal issues and the use of deadly force, potential encounter scenarios, as well as shooting fundamentals where trigger pull, sighting, grip and stance were reviewed. Dave taught us how to break down, clean, and reassemble our guns in addition to assisting in the selection of appropriate cleaning equipment. We also spent several sessions with Dave in hands-on live-fire range training where he coached us in skill development and acquisition.
We found Dave to be an excellent instructor and trainer. He is very knowledgeable on the topics mentioned above, highly safety conscious, clear and patient with explanations, and makes classroom and range lessons informative, fun, and enjoyable. His presentation style, demeanor, knowledge base, and instruction format helped remove our initial fears about firearms and built within us the level of comfort and confidence with handgun usage and safety necessary for continued involvement in home defense and related weapons issues. I have also sued Dave as a resource on resolution of mechanical issues and upgrades with our firearms, and in selection of other semi-automatic weapons, gear and ammunition. Without reservation we gladly recommend Dave’s course for anyone who has purchased a firearm for the first time or a person in need of a refresher course. Additionally, for the more experienced, Dave has other course offerings available that are recommended, such as his CCW class which is a requirement for obtaining a Concealed Carry Permit.~---
Just a short note to thank you for your personal in-home training that you held for my wife and myself after I bought Glock handguns for each of us. We are seniors and neither of us had fired a handgun before. Your knowledge of our guns and safety regulations was impressive. After getting us started on practicing loading our weapons with plastic bullets, we went to a private shooting range to fire our weapons. We practiced disassembling the guns for cleaning. We look forward to your classes on concealed carry permits. Thanks for the instruction.~Virgil
