Dear Chris,
I want to compliment you on your presentation of the Defensive Handgun 101 & 102 classes together with Guy Coursey.
The attention to detail that you and Guy gave all of the class participants, including me, led to significant improvement in our skills. Practical work on the range provided challenges that afforded the opportunity to identify and correct individual issues. Those discoveries made each of us better shooters.
Both of the courses were excellent and I highly recommend them for experienced shooters as well as those new to handguns.
I am looking forward to the next classes !
Thank you,
D. Gould
