TESTIMONIALS

“I feel that I learned a lot about the instruction portion of firearms training and relating these techniques to newer or less experienced officers.  The instructors were very personable and very professional.  They were very open about learning from their students.  I like that the students ran a lot of the range with supervision from the instructors.”
– Jordan Hellerud, Saint Louis Park Police Department

“I wanted to learn how to train officers who never touched a gun, and I learned how to step by step.  These instructors are better than any course I have had.  Instructors very much wanted to help YOU become a better instructor, could tell they cared and were very knowledgeable.”
– Dave Streefland, Eagan Police Department
