I was very impressed with the home defense range part of the class. I never realized just how fast things happen in real life situations, the class was a real eye opener for me. Thank you and my thanks to Charlene for all the tasty goodies

Thanks for willingness to continue to mentor me. Saturday was great and the two new targets were challenging evolutions to the scenarios you created for us. Kudos to you for continuing to develop and enhance the curriculum as representative of the real world situations in which we may find ourselves.

Ben (son) and I both enjoyed the courses, and learned a lot. In fact, I have already had an opportunity to recommend your courses to a cohort in Scouting who has recently retired and wants to get his wife started in pistol target shooting with him.

Your class was great! I learned the fundamentals and much more. I am certain the integrity and knowledge you bring far out weighs that of the typical NRA Instructor. We were lucky to have you!
You and Charlene are a very good team. I look forward to hearing more about your future class plans, practices and ladies range time, of course.
Thank you for your time and effort.
It is greatly appreciated!

I have got to say, you have saved me a lot of money. I literally could shoot ten thousand rounds, not taken the course and shoot better with the course, only shooting 200 rounds. Even though I had read, watched videos, shot a couple thousand rounds, I was not even close to what I accomplished after the very first round the second day.
The first day surprised me what I did not know. Sgt. De Young brought all into focus within the first ten minutes the second day. I would say only 25% of becoming a great shot is in the actual shooting, the rest is in mindset, stance, trigger control, grip and learning to do it right!.
