"Wasn't quite sure what to expect, as I wasn't familiar with Matt or the classes and training he provides. But upon arrival and initial meeting, I was made to feel comfortable. The classroom training time and outdoor range shooting time were both on point! Matt and Mike could not have been more knowledgeable and helpful. I will 100% be back for LEOSA recertification next year and would not hesitate for a second to recommend Matt's company for all your training needs!" ~ Christopher L. from Whitesboro, NY
