“I am sorry it has taken me a week to sit down and write but I wanted to thank you for the excellent training you gave me when I went to your Defenders handgun safety course and the CCW class the night before. I cannot tell you enough how much I learned from the classes. There is SO MUCH more to using a gun properly and what comes afterward than I thought when I signed up for the class. And I appreciate the fun way you teach, it makes the huge amount of information you gave us understandable and interesting.
Having a gun is an awesome responsibility and hearing the legal aspects of it made it even more clear to me what a huge responsibility it is. I had no idea how much there is to it, not what I have seen on TV for sure! I was a little scared of it all but after actually shooting the way you taught us, I wasn’t so scared anymore. I know If I line up the way you taught us, with the grip you taught us, it isn’t hard to hit what you mean to hit. I have a lot more confidence now, I hope I never need it but you never know, and I thank you for it.
Something else I did not expect-I had the longest conversation with my Dad than I have had in years! He is the reason I even took your class and he wanted to hear all about it and is excited for me to come visit so I can show him what I learned. And now my husband and I have something else we can do together. Robin says he may get one of those Rugers, he liked the one of yours he used so much, and that is the gun my Dad says he prefers also (when he uses a .22). So, family bonding! a benefit I did not expect.
Again, Thank You! You are an excellent teacher and made a very serious subject come alive and made it easy to remember by making it FUN! I have told all my friends about your class, they could see how excited I was about it. All my best to you and Scott, thank you from Robin and me.”
