This class was one of the best classes I've taken. It was fun and entertaining as well as informative. I felt the upselled everything, yet everything they sold was only high quality products that they believed in. Now I believe in them too. They're motto, "It's a lifestyle." is something I've already learned to adapt.

I had an incredible experience with the class yesterday. I had some knowledge as to what was to be expected. The class was informative and educational. For me the best part of the day was the drive home, my 22 year old son was with me and the knowledge he gained from the experience. I would highly recommend this company.

My 22 year old son and I attended the class yesterday. To say we err impressed is an understatement. The instructors were fabulous and answered all of our questions. They had excellent scenarios to help us better understand this life choice. The range was awesome and we watched people who had never handled a weapon become confident in their abilities. It was truly an incredible experience. I highly recommend Arm2defend

As someone who has taken NRA Pistol classes before, I was happily surprised that the range training for the CHL featured 5+ NRA Instructors, as well as the leaders of the training, Alisha, and Kevin who are NRA Instructors themselves. Most other training providers I considedred don't provide instruction during the training process, and the investment in qualified NRA Instructors made me feel much better about this training over the others that I investigated before applying for my CHL. This is a great Company to use whether you're an experienced shooter, or have never shot a gun before. You will feel more comfortable with a firearm, and understand the responsibilities you have as a firearm owner by going through this company. Would highly recommend.
