- Carol M.

Extremely enjoyed the seminar, nothing but positive feedback. The hand on portion was the part that everyone continued to talk about but, the one thing that really stood out was the overall knowledge of the two instructors."

- Vincent A.

Really loved the course and gave me a general understanding of handgun safety, use, and well as terminology that definitely sparked interest in me to keep learning. I can say that I was a bit nervous when I first arrived just because I have never fired a live-ammo gun before but the safety rules and guidelines as well as the expertise of the instructors made me feel safe and I definitely would take the course again.

- Alexander D.

What a valuable course! Everyone who owns a firearm should have this type of exposure and education from such knowledgeable sources.

- Marilyn B.

Time very well spent! The Fundamentals course was just that and just what I needed. The instruction was professional and I appreciated the fact that the staff was willing to stay through the lightning and rain to finish the class: Especially after driving quite a distance to attend. Thank you!

- Teri P.

Fun and Informative!

- Cole P.

The course was excellent! All of the explanations, principles for techniques, and cadence for the class curriculum were delivered in a digestible format. I really liked that fact that the instructors easily broke down complex principles for shooting to all levels of participants in the course, from beginners to advanced shooters alike. There are quite a few principles for shooting that correlate directly to Krav Maga training. I highly recommend FTI course for all levels of shooters.

- Christopher H.

I wanted to tell you that i loved the course. The instructors did a great job leaving me with some great advice i have not heard yet. Two thumbs up!
