What Our Students Are Saying

Having a feeling of protection is a must

Having a feeling of protection is a must for me, so when I decided to arm myself I asked around and heard Josh Masterson was the guy to go with for firearms training. I recommend you do the same if you are thinking about owning a firearm, always get the proper training. Ken L.

No longer will I be a victim

I grew up in a family that was always against firearms, until I came face to face with a life threatening situation that changed my life forever. No longer will I stand by hoping not to be a victim, now that I am getting educated on firearm safety to have the knowledge and know how to defend myself in every situation. Marcia T.

  • The shooter began his meticulous preparation and planning months, sometimes years in advance.
  • The psychological, social and economic consequences of the incident may last decades, even a lifetime.
