BEST PERIOD OF INSTRUCTION I HAVE EVER TAKEN!!!

Going into this class and knowing Jim’s background, I knew it was going to be a good time. The handgun class was exactly that. The first thing I told Jim was that I couldn’t keep a steady group from even 10 yards slow fire. By the end of the day, i was hitting the Sasquatch at 80 yards with a Glock 19. The handgun classes go into detail of how to ACTUALLY use a handgun. I don’t just mean at the range, but also in a real life situation. If you are looking to learn more about properly drawing a weapon, precision shooting, or self defense, this is the class and instructor for you.

CCW Class

I recently took my CCW class with Jim. I was extremely nervous for more than one reason. One I was not able to practice as much as I would have liked and two I never was very good at testing in school. When I first got to the class and met Jim I was immediately reassured that he was going to be a incredible teacher. The way he went over everything he expected so that there was no unknown and he answered all questions that anyone asked with no judgement. I know in the one day that I spent in the class I leaned more then I thought I would including proper placement of you hands, feet and body when shooting and why they should be that way. He made sure that we all understood and would be completely prepared if we were every in a situation that we had to use out firearm to defend ourselves. When we were testing at the range he was very supportive and encouraging, he made me feel that there was nothing to be nervous about. I would recommend this class to anyone that I know wishing to get there CCW. I know I will be taking additional training from Jim to better myself when using any firearm.

Long range shooting - arrrgggggg and with Jim success

I feel fortunate that I found the long range class Jim offered as he was able to fix in a few hours what i had been fighting with for close to a year. During the zero phase of day 1 he had me shooting 1 MOA shot groups which had been eluding me for a VERY long time. That right there made the class worth while, but Jim was not done. On day 2, shooting at distances Jim was driven to ensure I had a valid hit on each target out to 1,000 yds. I was also fortunate to repeat the process (zero and distances) with a different batch of ammunition on day 2 and Jim was motivated throughout.
I am looking forward to practicing the skills i learned during the class and taking additional classes that Jim offers.

Tactical Traing Class

If you really want to understand your weapon and how to properly utilize it to “protect yourself or your loved ones ” this is a must class. I have been around weapons since being very young. But, this will teach you to use your weapon to your advantage and to be more comfortable in doing so. Obviously practice makes these lessons better but the class was phenomenal. I like his enthusiasm, no nonsense approach and you will too. Class was worth every minute of training. Hope to do a follow-up soon. I highly recommend this class to anyone, from beginner to expert from man or woman. Great stuff. Thanks Jim!
