Class review submitted via email
can't thank you enough for a great CCW class yesterday. After years of
'thinking about it' and struggling to give up a precious weekend day, we
are both thrilled to have finally gotten the ball rolling.
focus on firearm safety was phenomenal. The videos were pertinent and
powerful and really drove home the message that firearm safety is of
knowledge of firearms and your diligence in practicing firearm safety
are stellar. On top of that, you have a warm, personable classroom
presence with just enough wit and humor to keep it interesting.
very recently purchased a new gun in a new format (semi auto vs.
pistol) and having very limited shooting experience, the range portion
of your class was invaluable to me (actually to both of us). My new gun
was jamming nearly each time I shot it at home which had me a bit
flustered. Having you there next to me on the range, took away the
anxiety and you were quickly able to diagnose the jamming issue as a
grip problem. Once that was solved, I was able to gain some confidence
in using my firearm. That is invaluable!
Law portion of the class is a very necessary (if dry) portion of the
class and some very interesting discussions sprung up during this
portion. You did a great job of emphasizing the importance of
understanding how the law pertains to CHL license holders and the
magnitude of the responsibility that being a CHL licensee entails.
class was an interesting mix with 4 women in their early 20s with what
appeared to be limited shooting and firearm experience; 2 men in their
early 20s, one with hunting experience, the other with limited
experience, and one older man with apparently years of shooting
experience; and Mike and myself. I thought that you worked well with
everyone and gave the same attention to all participants.
Salem Hunting Club is an amazing club. We have already started
searching for something similar near us and hope to find a club even
half as active as SHC where we can continue to learn and practice our
Thanks so much for your dedication and devotion to Firearm safety and
teaching. Your passion is very evident. The Salem Hunting Club is very
fortunate to have you on their Board and as an active member! We will
highly recommend this class for years to come.
