I had been contemplating taking my Concealed Carry Permit classes for some time,  but my work schedule did not allow me the time I needed.  I was given Dave’s card and called to see if he could accommodate me by coming to my house.  He was only to pleased to do this and worked with me to get suitable dates and times.  The lessons were easy to understand and all along,  we were encouraged to ask questions, no matter how stupid we thought they were.  Dave showed us different types of weapons and holsters, discussed the merits of each and allowed us to freely handle the weapons always ensuring we were conscious of safety, teaching us with a hands on approach.  Our firing practice was done in the evening again to accommodate us,  in a safe area and we were given as much time as we needed to complete the exercise.  I enjoyed this experience very much and would highly recommend Dave for CCW classes or anything “Gun” related.


I am looking forward to working with Dave In the future.




My wife and I took Dave’s CCW class. Dave was very knowledgeable and patient throughout the process. He made it easy to understand the material and which in turn helped pass all parts of the test. I would HIGHLY recommend Dave’s services to anyone thinking of getting their CCW.



Hi everyone, I took a private shooting class along with mu three friends at my house last year. He is an excellent instructor. I was really nervous before I took the class because of my English is my second language. Dave took his time and made sure I understood everything. He made me feel comfortable around a gun and taught me how to use it well. I highly recommend Dave. he will not disappoint you. Thank you so much Dave.




In December 2012 we purchased our first firearms, a Mossberg 20 gauge shotgun and Smith & Wesson M&P 22 caliber handgun from On Target Guns. Since we had  no prior experience with semi-automatic weapons, Dave Kutlesa, owner of on target Guns, suggested the M&P 22 as an initial handgun, because it is a good training handgun with less recoil and lower ammunition cost for target practice. Kutlesa further suggested we obtain professional training and recommended we contact David Snyder, a NRA Certified Instructor and Range Safety Officer under the Company name of Firearm Fundamentals.

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.
