“Loved hearing the info from you, an attorney who has actually been through it all many times, as opposed to instructors who have only read about it."


“Very thorough and enlightening. Speaker is very knowledgeable and experienced. Speaker kept audience engaged through interaction. Excellent manual with handouts and resources."

“This class is the next step after initial CCW training. It serves as a reminder of the seriousness of issues, and is sobering. The use of local examples really brings it home."

“I consider this seminar to be essential for anyone who carries. "


“You answered the tough questions in the sometimes gray areas. Very good examples. Would highly recommend!"

“Answered many, many questions I have had since buying a gun and having a CCW. Hopefully I will never have to use it, but it is comforting to know the rules."


“You did a great job of deciphering legal speak so it can be understood by laymen. Great information for anyone intending to use a firearm in self defense."


“I personally believe seminars such as this should be mandatory for all CCW holders as well as applicants. Excellent, informational, and very educational."
