Very thorough. they will have you thinking of every aspect of ownership of a gun. from touching on the legal stand point to knowing how to defend yourself. The best part was the range. What an awesome team at Arm2defend!!

Great class! Very informative. I was nervous at first, but I learned so much. Kevin and Alicia were awesome. The sampler pack at the range was quite helpful in helping me to choose my own firearm.

The class was easy to understand and participate in. With the classes being given over the net, it let people participate more openly and relaxed. With a class that talks about defending oneself and possibly taking another persons life, the trainers presented themselves as people of the community.If you are looking to get CCW license and are looking for that military/ police training experience in your class, then don't take the class from Armed2Defend. Armed2Defend will give you respect and train you as a person. They know that you will be taking a firearm into their community(s), so they will train you to take a firearm into a community, not onto a battlefield. Armed2Defend is the way to go for your CCW training!

Great people with a great perspective providing great training. The course is very educational and presented with a great philosophy of the best gun fight is the one you avoid. I would definitely recommend. Kevin and Alisha were both knowledgeable and tremendous at teaching the material. Thanks!
