"I took a one-on-one gun class with Dan. It was a great class and he took great care, paid a ton of attention and took what I knew and began building on it. I enjoyed it a lot and was able to learn from his extensive knowledge. Afterwards I had a much better understanding, more confidence and knew what I had to practice. He even gave me some homework, which is great. I look forward to my next class with Dan and building upon what we began in this first class."
"Dan’s classes were great. I took a CCW class at a gun show a few years ago and it doesn't compare to Dan’s class. He offered so much pertinent information about self defense laws as well as adding his personal experiences. Would highly recommend to both new and experienced gun owners."
