“I am significantly more confident in my own shooting abilities. What I liked most about the training was the repitition and overall shooting opportunities.  I have already recommended this course to others.  It’s fun and laid back, but also challenging in a good way.”
– Keirsten Englund, Ramsey County Sheriff’s Office

“Extremely knowledgeable instructors with an obvious passion for what they do.”
– Eric Anderson, Lakeville Police Department

“Class was awesome!  Great instruction, demonstration, and great material.  I am now very confident in teaching basic firearm skills and this class really broke it down.”
– Josh Sannes, Eagan Police Department

“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

“I cannot believe how much I improved my shooting over this course.  It was a great course for learning and re-learning shooting fundamentals.  What I liked most about the course is that I learned to such a high degree I will be very comfortable instructing.”
– Leif Vandersteen, Mendota Heights Police Department

“I feel my shooting skills have improved significantly as well as my teaching skills.  Excellent instructors, very skilled and competent.  What I liked most about the course was actually practicing running my own firing lines.  This course was excellent, among the best I’ve ever attended.”
– Chris Anderson, Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office

“Very good course!  Goes over the fundamental trainings to be able to teach other people at all skill levels.”
