My wife and I really enjoyed the CWL class. We thought you did a fantastic job and getting the ability to shoot several handguns was outstanding. Now we know just which guns are perfect for our personal needs. Thank! - Alan 

We really had fun in your class!  I truly enjoyed your teaching style and would really like to attend more advanced courses. I am aware this kind of training and skills need to be maintained and I always like to sharpen my skill level. - George P.

That was a great class and I learned a great deal about different weapons and how to handle myself in life or death situations!
Hope to be able to join your team again soon for future classes.  - Brian H.

Your training was fantastic on Saturday. Enjoyed it very much. I was discussing it with my coworkers. I was telling them how great the topics you covered are and everyone who wants to learn how to protect themselves should sign up.- Bill

I've trained with Sgt. Mathena for many years and he is a very knowledgeable person. If you're ever in his area, sign up and take any one of the courses he offers. Get trained and get confident. - Steve

Your Night Fire Class was awesome.  The four of us want to take another class, and I am so grateful my family feels more confident and comfortable with our family firearms. - Scott A.
