Testimonials:

John and Diane,

I just wanted to thank you again for the excellent pistol training you provided. I have been involved with firearms for over 40 years and you taught me new techniques to improve my aim, which proved out at the range with better groupings.
I thought your approach to hands on safety and form training was very valuable and will allow me and my family/friends to fully enjoy the use of fire arms.

Thank you,
Dean
