Below are a few comments from persons who have taken my courses:

- "Thank you again for all you taught my Mom and me! We really appreciate your knowledge, insight, and dedication.. .. After hearing stories from various friends and acquaintances, I don't know why anyone would choose another class over yours. ..."

- "very thorough!"

- "I liked that you worked with me on the range".

- "I would recommend this course to anybody I know".

- "It was all very good info. Answered a lot of questions. I enjoyed this very much."

- and from a student who had taken my renewal course (he had a CCW for about 20+ years) and advised me verbally, with words to the effect  -  you raised issues that I had never thought about, and answered questions that other courses didn't.

- words to effect: "your course was a lot more thorough than the one my wife took" (from another source); "your course helped me a lot"; "the money and time was well worth it"; and  I felt so much better after receiving your instruction.

- "Thank you Nathan - I appreciate your passion teaching this critical topic"... [and your] "candid discussion of threat scenarios".

- "Best in depth training I ever received".

-What did you think was the best thing about the course? - "Amount of information presented & sources &  lots of one-on-one attention at the range"

-What did you think was the best thing about the course? - "Life scenarios - range practice / critique"

Course Evaluation Question: "What did you think was the best thing about the course? 

     Response from an Assistant District Attorney. "Personal teaching - i.e., not just intellectual drivel." ... "A course I would recommend to those interested in learning, not simply trying to get a CCW Permit".
