“I cannot imagine carrying [a concealed firearm] without this training!! I am so glad that I can make mistakes on the range so that I am better prepared for any real-life conflicts.”
– Ed, Durham Attorney
“David and Rebecca, your class is a breath of fresh air. Finally! An instructor that's willing to teach it like it should be! Strip away all the foo foo and politics, getting down to the bare essence of the objective.
Being a NAUI scuba instructor, as well as a private pilot working on my instrument rating, I can appreciate the serious nature of what you're trying to teach. Your . . . telling it like it is, in my opinion is absolutely necessary and effective. Don't ever water it down!
I like the way you raise the bar each step of the way. Your communication skills are awesome! Starting out with the story of the Iceman, read with such feeling and clarity really set the stage for the concept of a “free man.” I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Your demonstration skills, as well as Rebecca's demonstration skills added to the overall effectiveness of your teaching. Well done.”
-- J.P., Vice President, Commercial Steel Company

“Phenomenal!! I would be willing to pay twice the price. This course showed me how much I did NOT know.” - Ed, Durham Attorney
“Thank you for the photos [on our private class web page]. Seeing the photos will help me focus on the right grip during my practice.
I also want to tell you guys how impressed I am with your instruction. Your enthusiasm, knowledge and ability to teach are second to none. You guys have already had a tremendous impact on our level of awareness and preparation. I look forward to our next class and getting [my wife] started as well.” -- Chad
"I was very impressed with your candor regarding the importance of what we are learning. Unfortunately we live in a country where political correctness usually is more important than honesty.
Your skill regarding competition and tactical shooting as well as teaching techniques was very evident. I am looking forward to many more days of training with you." ccccccccccccccccccccc-- Norm
“I have been training with David for about 2 years now. He has improved my shooting skills 1000%. Being a teacher myself I can tell when someone packs the gear to teach and knows their stuff. David is the real deal. He has broken down the subject matter like no one I have seen before. He makes it easy for you to understand and practice to get better.
If you are looking for competition, self defense, gun knowledge, or just plain plinking, David can take you as far as you want to go. Above all he is a true gentleman. I highly recommend learning from this man.”
