Just wanted to thank you again for your service through the classes you teach!!
As a "retired" teacher, I recognize
good instruction. You and Justin do an excellent job!!!
Thanks again, and I'm looking forward to "repeats"!!!


Not until after your class did I realize how unprepared I had been. It's almost scary to think that I considered myself "ready". Jeez am I glad to have taken your class.

1st Class

Defensive Pistol Graduate




Jerrod and Justin:

Pamela and I would like to again extend our thanks for your enthusiasm and the time spent with both of us, especially Pamela. Given the fact that she had NEVER handled a pistol, let alone fire one, I quickly felt comfortable entrusting her training with both of you. The progress she made from 22 cal to 9mm was enjoyable to watch. It was quickly obvious that you both understand the need for this training and are dedicated to your student’s safety and their understanding. We appreciate your dedication and will, at every opportunity, spread the word about this most enjoyable experience. We both had an enjoyable time and both came away much better prepared to safely handle our weapon(s) and are preparing to continue to improve our efficiency. I am looking forward to "trying on" handguns with Pamela while she looks for the right one for her. You were right she wanted nothing to do with the cleaning that took place last night.

Thanks again and hopefully we will cross paths at another class in the future.




Hi Jerrod and Justin- Just writing to thank you for a great class! Really learned a lot and know that I will practice and make the most of my training. Thanks again for all your help and patience- it shows that you guys really love what you do.

Jerrod, thanks for teaching a great class this past weekend. I believe that I came away with a lot of skills and knowledge. You are a very good instructor. I felt that if I messed up you would teach and not scold or yell. This made for a very comfortable class. Your knowledge and emphasis on safety is second to none in my opinion. I look forward to the reunion class next year. Thanks again.

Jerrod and Justin – I just wanted to thank both of you for a thoroughly instructive and enjoyable afternoon taking the NRA Basic Pistol Course. Both Julius and Alex said that it answered a lot of their questions – especially with respect to safety (this is exactly my goal from your course). Julius said that he now feels much safer and confident about handling a firearm. I am also of that mind as well. I will not hesitate to recommend your course to my friends – or to sign up for more advanced courses in the future. Take care!

I just wanted to send a quick email to you, to again tell you how much I enjoyed the Defensive Carry Pistol class this past weekend.  I learned a lot, and had fun.

I walked into the class with five years of shooting experience and more than 20 thousand rounds put down range, but having never drawn from a holster on a live range. I completed the class with a solid base of knowledge and some basic tactics of defensive carry. Doug
