What are students saying about our classes…
Wonderful course. Steve was a very patient and very thorough training counselor. I walked away from the course knowing what I needed to work on to become a better instructor myself. So excited to get started on this journey and would highly recommend his class to anyone!

Steve Maduro demonstrated subject matter expertise. His knowledge and teaching style imparted both the critical information and how to instruct new and experienced gun owners. His emphasis on safety in the classroom and on the range is outstanding. Steve is a great instructor.
