Thanks for the CCW renewal training last Saturday.  I have been to several renewal classes over the years and I thought you had the best one yet.  You are very knowledgeable and cover all the bases.  I really liked how you conducted the range with authority!!  I felt a lot safer being around people who had guns and not knowing their experience level.  It was a pleasure to be in your class!!!  I have already recommended you to a friend who is up for renewal soon.

Take care, Doug

5 Stars!

The class Sherri conducted was wonderful. She provided a wealth of information and showed her knowledge of each topic as she thoroughly explained them. Sherri also made the class very enjoyable and worth every penny.

I had the best experience working with Sherri. (She is a sweetheart) I had never worked with a gun before and was scared to death I was going to shoot my own foot. Sherri was so patient with me and explained everything in great detail. By the end of my session I left there feeling comfortable with what I was doing. I look forward to continue working with Sherri and building my skill level.
Thank you Sherri for being there and helping build my confidence with guns.


Sherri does a dang good job. She may be new to the instructing side but she knows her stuff. Another good thing about her is she also does one on one instruction and training on proper handling and different techniques of how to shoot if you need it. (For a fee she does this and very reasonable as well).


My husband and I took this class a month ago, Sherri is amazing! She turns a class that could be very dry and boring into one that is interesting and fun. Her classes are very informative and educational, with lots of humor to get you through the day. She provides an awesome lunch then takes you out and works with everyone individually on weapon handling and shooting! Thank you Sherri for bringing your classes to this community and putting so much into it!    5 stars                        Kisa
