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 oustanding. I look forward to contnue to be a student with Learning Firearms.
