Just finished Fundamental Carbine. It was a great experience. I would highly recommend this course for anyone interested in learning manipulation and marksmanship with the AR platform.

I have now taken five different courses with these guys, and the professionalism and quality of the training has been outstanding. They run a very safe range, allow a realistic experience, and also realize that students also want to have fun. The most recent Dave Spaulding class was truly outstanding. I look forward to continue to be a student with Learning Firearms.

I recommend Learning Firearms to every shooter I meet - I truly believe everyone, regardless of experience level, can benefit meaningfully from their instruction. Classes are worth every cent of my money and every second of my time.
