    Great overview of the regulations, do’s/do not’s, and mind set needed for CCDW. The instruction team were professional and the class was very well organized.

    Marty Wells did an excellent job teaching the class and relating everything to real life experiences. Many of the students in the class never shot or owned a gun before, he took all the time needed to help everyone from the most experienced to the non-experienced. He and JR stayed late to help my daughter with her shooting to insure she was ready for the real world. Excellent job highly recommended.

    Excellent class and excellent instructors in a top notch, comfortable facility! I would highly recommend to anyone considering getting there CCDW license. The class was diverse from every perspective be it male, female, black, white, young (just over 21, since you must be 21) to elderly. there were over 40 participants in my class and everyone was made to feel comfortable. Marty Wells and JR do an excellent job of covering all of the material and making sure everyone has been taught the information they need to pass the test, if they paid attention. The shooting portion was done indoors at Bud’s top notch shooting facility.

    This was a great class. Very informative and serious but fun. Marty was great and will make sure everything is understood. He is very helpful through the whole process and wants to make sure you succeed in the class and outside of the classroom in real life situations.

    I took the class on Saturday very informative class. Marty keeps the class interesting with everyday situations. Very nice set up with a one stop location take the class and range in one building. If you are not comfortable with your shooting he offered you to come back with help for free. He makes sure you leave their understanding the class. I would recommend this class to anyone look to get their CCDW class.
