what our students are saying about legal heat concealed carry classes
"Dustin was one of the best instructors I’ve ever had. No one falls asleep in his class because he makes every aspect of this class enjoyable and informative.
He’s happy to discuss any self-defense scenario you can think of, guiding you through the myriad of laws that apply (or don’t apply) and keeps questions relevant to the training material."
"Heading in with a fair amount of firearm knowledge, I was skeptical about what I would actually get from the class other than a certificate. The instructor was awesome! Made the information less dry and simplified things for everyone to understand, and was PASSIONATE about safety, constitutional rights, and people carrying firearms.
I will recommend this program to anyone and everyone!"
"What a comfortable atmosphere and extremely education experience! I had no idea about all of the rights and huge responsibilities gun owners have.
I cannot wait to purchase my first gun, get to the range, and develop the skills needed to be able to protect myself and family.Thank you for offering this course. This will be recommended to all my friends!"
