TESTIMONIALS

“I wanted to thank you for the great class on Saturday. We learned a lot and had so much fun too! I think I could easily become addicted! I was really apprehensive, not only about the shooting test but because I read on your website that you were all Police/SWAT team. My ex-boyfriend is a Police/SWAT Officer and honestly he was very condescending when he talked to people and I was worried that all Police Officers were the same. My sister assured me and said you were great, but I had my doubts. Thanks for proving me wrong! Your entire team was amazing. I had no idea we would learn so much and get so much help. I was very impressed and will be referring your group to everyone I know.”
