I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the training class last week.  As a newer officer I came to your class with very limited pistol experience and I was very nervous about being unprepared for your training.  Having taken your class I feel incredibly more prepared to use my pistol either on the range or on the street with confidence. I look forward to using many of your techniques when I become a range officer, to help other officers gain some of that confidence.  If you hold a training class in our area again, I will absolutely encourage my department to send more officers.  Stay safe when you’re on the streets and good luck on your future classes.
