    Mark and his team are highly knowledgeable, professional and patient instructors. This class is great for learning skills-building exercises to take to your range as part of contined learning, or as a good foundation so you develop good habits from the start. Mark gives the “why” behind his instruction and legal consideration behind weapons use. Value wise, 9 hours of this level of instruction and access to knowledge by credible experienced individuals is an absolute steal. Sign up today!

    This is my second time taking this class. I still walked away with so much knowledge. The 2nd time was different than the first. Both times the experience was priceless. I would highly recommend this course. Whether you are new to the firearm world or just new to getting involved with training. You have made the right decision if this is what uou have chosen. Mark and his team go above and beyond to explain the how’s and most importantly the why’s. I signed up for an additional class next month and also plan on getting into some of their advanced training that they offer. Stop buying cool accessories and invest in how to use the tool. Thank uou PDT.

    I took this class with very little experience, but eager to learn more
    Mark is a amazing instructor with a very rare ability to teach in a way that everybody can understand and relate to, not just memorizing techniques, but learning by doing and understanding why. Everybody feels comfortable and everybody gets the personal attention they need. There was no pressure
    I was most impressed by how professional and informative, yet comfortable and enjoyable the whole experience was.
    The information learned in this course is by far a much better investment than any gear or equipment you could buy for the same price.
    I would highly recommend this to experts and beginners
    Thank you and I look forward to taking many more courses I’m the future
