Read what our students have to say about us: 

"Matt is a very qualified teacher. His knowledge and experience are evident in the classroom and on the range. In particular, the range portion of the concealed carry class was illuminating. Everyone got the chance to shoot from cover, shoot from different positions and even while on the move. These are things most civilians don't get the chance to practice with live ammunition locally. I definitely plan on taking the advanced concealed carry class next month. Thanks for the great instruction Matt!" ~ James K. from Syracuse about our USCCA Certified Concealed Carry Course

the concealed carry class was illuminating

"This was a great class. It was informative and fun at the same time. It give me a better understanding of my surroundings. It taught me what I need to be aware of and how quickly a situation can occur. Matt was a wonderful instructor and was very knowledgeable of the content and the real life examples/experiences. I would highly recommend this course and others that Matt offers." ~ Kaylie from Liverpool, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course

It was informative and fun at the same time.

"Professional, knowledgeable and very hands on. Worth EVERY penny. Understands our concerns and continually improving to meet our needs. They work hard so you don't have to. Great experience! Will be back for more!" ~ Doc. Faisal from Syracuse about our Multi-State Pistol Permit Course

Worth EVERY penny. Great experience! Will be back for more!

"Just completed the Basic Range Safety Officer Training Course. I enjoyed the course and learned far more than just the Course description. Matt's teaching style makes it very easy to learn. Matt keeps all students involved and engaged. I would highly recommend PS&ED to any one looking to Further there firearm education and training. I am looking forward to attending more classes with Matt!! Thank You." ~ Mike from Clay, NY about our Basic Range Safety Officer Training Course

…learned far more than just the Course description.

"I Took my handgun safety and Article 35 courses with PS&Ed. I now have my permit with no restrictions. Thanks Matt Mallory for your teaching and wisdom." ~ Erich from Onondaga, NY about our NY Handgun Safety and Article 35 Courses

I now have my permit with no restrictions.

"One of the best classes I ever took. Matt was a very personable and knowledgeable instructor. This USCCA Instructor course far exceeds the NRA Pistol Instructor course. I plan on taking more courses from Matt and PS&ED." ~ Doug from Homer, NY about our USCCA Instructor Workshop

One of the best classes I ever took.

"The Knowledge base is well above what you would expect. When I went in, all I thought I would hear was do, this and don’t do that. The experience these instructors bring to the table is amazing. They kept us interested in what they were saying and made feel that they were not above us. Nor did they act like they didn’t think we deserve to be there. They told us the laws and the consequence, but also told us what our rights were." ~ Bill from Syracuse, NY about our Article 35 Course

The experience these instructors bring to the table is amazing.

"Everything was awesome and extremely informational. Best investment I could have made! The knowledge was top notch and every question asked there was always an intelligent answer that was said. Would and have recommended to anyone wanting to get their pistol permit or just gain knowledge about the subject. Will definitely be taking more classes." ~ Andrew from Oswego, NY about our NY Handgun Safety Course, Article 35 Course, SIMCO-2 Course, and Proper Cause Letter Service

Best investment I could have made!

"The class was great and contained lots of valuable information. I really loved your presence in the classroom and your passion for the subject matter. I am speaking to my girlfriend now about having her take the same course. For me personally I plan to do the multi-state and "try it before you buy it" course myself. I look forward to seeing you in the future!" ~ Andrew from Baldwinsville, NY about our NY Handgun Safety Course

The class was great…

"I've taken both a private lesson, and now the USCCA Basic Concealed Carry Firearms Course with Matt after today. He is an excellent trainer in the classroom and especially on the range during live fire. His extensive experience provides real life examples of the Do's & Do not's of laws, safety, and proper marksmanship techniques; Not just routine target shooting but real life scenarios all responsible permit holders need to know & practice, but can't always do so during routine range time at most clubs. All levels of experience need to take the many courses Matt and his staff offer. Highly recommend; well worth the cost." ~ David from Liverpool, NY about our private lessons and USCCA Certified Concealed Carry Course

He is an excellent trainer…

"I attended Matt's class on Pepper Spray recently and found it very helpful and informative. It was a good combination of classroom and practice so that I felt more comfortable actually using the pepper spray canister should I ever need to. Matt's classes are enjoyable with a relaxed atmosphere while at the same time much information is covered. I particularly liked the small class size as it allowed us extra time for practice. I would recommend classes with Matt and intend to take a few more myself." ~ CJ from Jamesville, NY about our SABRE Red Pepper Spray Course

…found it very helpful and informative.

"Matt, it was a pleasure meeting you and attending the Advanced Concealed Carry course. It is well worth taking, more for the knowledge that you provide but also for the critique that you provide your class with the errors that you found when we were shooting. You developed the course with an eye on visual variety and for real life scenarios. Look forward to taking another class. Thank you for an educational and fun day!" ~ Michael from Solvay, NY about our USCCA Advanced Concealed Carry Course

It is well worth taking…

"This was my first ever experience with "live pistols & handguns". I had taken the online course & was eager and excited but at the same time nervous. There was a lot to process and assimilate but Matt showed a high level of knowledge, experience and patience that translated into a comfortable level of confidence for me. He was there for me in every aspect of safety, proper range protocols, loading & unloading my handgun as well as proper stance, sighting & shooting it with a reasonable level of success. I came out of this class with exactly the experiences I wanted to safely handle my handgun in my everyday experience. I would highly recommend this Phase II class to everyone." ~ Ray from N. Syracuse, NY about our NRA Basic Pistol Phase II Course

This was my first ever experience…

"With 42 years of military/defense contractor experience, I have been on both sides of the lectern and can state categorically your presentation of a large body of information to a eclectic group was superb! You were in complete control, presenting information in a manner conducive to retention and eagerly engaged with the participants in a light comfortable manner. I not only recommend your course to all others, but fully intend to seek out some of your other offerings e.g., your "Try Them All" program. Well done, thank you!" ~ LTC Alan B. USA Ret. from Cazenovia, NY about our NY Handgun Safety Course

I not only recommend your course…

"Obtaining a Florida permit was easy as I already had a Utah permit. Class is taught by professionals with safety first and foremost. Taking several more courses shortly." ~ John from Cicero, NY about our Multi-State Course

Class is taught by professionals…

"I got approved for concealed carry with no restrictions, in Onondaga county. Thanks for having me attend. I'll be in your multi-state course in the future." ~ Ryan from Liverpool, NY about our NY Handgun Safety Course

I got approved for concealed carry no restrictions…
