Neat Video

This is from our November 2016 Certification Course for Women Pistol Instructors…

“The book of material is great.  I think it will be a great read + guide.  Not to many students made it easier to ask questions + discuss the information.  The course was set up very well for a person to be successful.  Demonstrations with TPI and how to use it where very well done.  Instructors were very knowledgeable in each subject.”    -Anonymous

“This class was awesome!  Though I was pushed out of my comfort zone many times, I feel like I will be a much better pistol instructor because of the hands on teaching, presenting and evaluating we learned.  I truly appreciate your commitment to safety and the example you set for students… Thanks for the enrichment opportunity!  Was well worth the 6 hour drive!”    -Venessa

Pure-Beginner Gun Class : May 2016

PBGC May 2016 Suzanne shows Teach Freedom“Class was quite informative.  This class would be good for everyone involved in shooting sports, whether they are seasoned shooters needing a refresher course or a novice shooter just learning about firearms.  I have been shooting guns of various kinds for more than 50 years, and I was still able to come away with new knowledge of firearms use and safety. Thank You!” – Anonymous
