A great testimonial from one of our students: Mr. Pope, Thank you for the opportunity to complete my classroom and range training with your group this weekend. Mr. Cook was very informative yesterday and made us all feel welcomed. Lewis was great today on the range. He was very attentive and had great advice for me to correct some of my detrimental habits. You can be proud of your entire staff. Being in a class and on the range like that (for us novices) can be quite intimidating and I have been around others who make us feel less than good about ourselves. Your folks were just the opposite. Their supportive nature was much appreciated. Again, thank you for a great weekend experience. Respectfully, Chris, student 10/17-18 ccw class

We were honored to participate in the Urban Initiative sponsored by the Second Amendment Foundation. John Annoni from Camp Compass Academy led a amazing discussion that empowered us to move forward. We are now in the final planning stages and will launch our youth initiative in the coming weeks. We are thrilled to be part of the (CISE) Community Initiative for Safety & Education collaborative.
