"Although I have experience with this rifle system and activity, I learned much and was challenged by the curriculum. Craig was a skilled instructor and a patient professional in addition to having a wit I can appreciate. My classmates were supportive, fun, focused, and capable.

"I am a CCW Instructor, and RSO here in Cbus. I thoroughly enjoyed Craig's teaching style. In addition to being a very knowledgeable guy, he's funny! I am happy to say that I learned quite a bit from Craig...even something as simple as the way I have always done a proactive/reactive mag change! One small adjustment made all the sense in the world, and will forever adopt it into my daily shooting habits."

"Craig's experience teaching comes through in the ways he interacts with students and keeps them motivated and he used his real world experiences to illustrate the relevancy of what we were learning."

"I was very pleased with Craig and the way he taught. He took the time to teach techniques correctly since I was the youngest and most inexperienced fo the group. This class was very basic which I would highly reccommend for the new shooter. I learned proper grip, draw, sight picture, and shooting."
