What people say

The basic shooting class you taught me last December has helped to greatly reduce the size of my shot group. Prior to the class, most of my shots hit low and to the right of the bullseye, with a number of rounds that missed the target paper totally. Now, I fire 50 rounds; half of which can be covered with one fist that covers the bullseye. The remainder are consistently within six inches of the bullseye (from 7 yards). This is true whether I shoot my 9mm pistol, a .38 cal. revolver, a .22 cal. pistol or the .22 cal. revolver. There is still plenty of room for improvement, so I will continue practicing until I can fire 50 rounds and get a shot group that creates a 2″ hole in the center of the target.

I would be interested in taking an additional individual training class in the future. Please keep me on the mailing list so I know when these classes are offered.

We took the class on Saturday, the 5th and we want to tell Mike he is an excellent trainer – the class was worth every penny we paid. We learned so very much and have a renewed and revitalized respect for guns and the instructors who teach us about safe handling and the responsibility that goes along with ownership. THANKS Mike!
