“My experience taking my concealed permit class with Ryan was a very enjoyable one. He took the information he had to teach us an did an excellent job of relating it to real world scenarios with examples that will help me to retain the information. Overall an excellent class with one of the best prices I found in Tallahassee. I look forward to taking one of the other classes offered by him.”
I attended this class on 29JUN2013. I found Nate to be a highly competent instructor. He began the class by listing his credentials, establishing his qualifications based on training and experience. He paused after every portion to ask if there where any questions on the info that had just been covered before moving on to the next point. He effectively answered all questions in a manner that did not make any of the participants feel dumb for asking the question. All of the information was presented in a clear, concise, easy to understand manner and he used examples from his own experience along with clear demonstrations whenever possible. Once we arrived at the shooting range for the practical evaluation portion of the class, he worked with each student individually to insure that they had a complete understanding of the principles involved in the safe and effective handling of a weapon before asking them if they sere ready to be evaluated. There was no rush to just “push ’em through and get it over with” but rather a sincere dedication to teaching how to do it correctly. All of his advice was tailored to the individual based on their own body structure, natural stance, and level of demonstrated skill. After ten years in the military, and extensive experience with training with multiple weapons systems, my unbiased assessment of this class is that is geared toward the first time shooter and the development of strong basic safety skills which are critical to the individual shooter becoming proficient in the use of firearms. He also gave clear information regarding the concealed carry application process so that no one had any doubt as to how to get it done. Just in case you are thinking that these folks made this whole thing up just to promote themselves, feel free to contact me at; email@example.com and I will be happy to respond to any inquiries to the best of my ability. Bear in mind: I am not an instructor, and I am NOT QUALIFIED to teach any portion of this class…..but I am willing to share info on what this class has done for me.
I really enjoyed your class for Concealed Weapons Permit last Saturday, 28 July. You are very knowledgeable, as well as, thorough. You gave us all individual attention; that was really appreciated. I also learned many new things. What really surprised me was learning that ammo gets old and should be replaced. My ammo is over 10 years old, and I will dispose of at nearest police station. Thanks for your patience at the range. Take care.
Thanks for the informative basic instruction. I learned things that I didn’t know and that will be useful in the future. Especially regarding Florida and interstate laws. I am certainly glad that I emailed you guys as opposed to going to the gun show class. You have a great instructor and It was nice for someone to talk in a real world/ non- P.C – candy coated manner. This was much more informative than the Tucson Sector provides for ranch patrols, so I will be passing on the good word about you folks to my friends here and out there ASAP. Thanks and feel free to use this email as a testament online or otherwise.
Thanks for the class it was very informative and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The instructor not only fully answered all questions before and during the course, but continued to be a mentor even after the class had ended.
Thank you so much! The class was great and I learned a lot I didn’t know. You are doing a great job and please keep up the good work. Thanks again. Have a good day
It was a great class, I learned a lot! Thank you.
Just wanted to send a quick thank you for the course today, I thought you guys were great and had a fantastic time.
First off, thanks for the CCW course I recently attended. You conducted a very professional, yet personable, training for folks seeking to obtain a concealed carry permit. More importantly, you gave proper focus on the moral, legal and physical responsibilities of carrying a weapon – especially the act of using it. I hope to be able to attend some of your more advanced personal defense training soon.
Feel free to use any part of this as a personal endorsement for your CWP class.
Best regards and thanks in advance,
I thought the class was fantastic. Very informative and Ryan & Nate were very professional. I will be recommending you to any one who wants to take a class. My wife will be taking it in a few months. Thanks for a great class.
I was very impressed with Mr. Knopp. He was very professional, was able to provide corrective advice, and I came away feeling far more confident about my ability to safely use a firearm.
He should be commended for his patience and good advice.
