After a 40 year layoff from shooting, I took it up again several years ago. I took the Basic Pistol course and right away learned several things I was not doing properly. The course is well presented and Gary took the time to answer questions as well as show examples of what he was presenting.  The hour spent on the range one on one with Gary was a tremendous way to reinforce what was taught in class.  I highly recommend taking this class and spending the hour on the range.


Our Point Blank Defense Seminar was an excellent and timely presentation of handgun safety. Gary presented in a clear, concise way that was engaging and informative. I would highly recommend this seminar for any handgun enthusiast.                                                                       Russ
