Best Class Ever!

I took the Basic Handgun Course from instructor Scott Frandsen last month. Prior to taking this course I had never fired nor shot a gun. The class covered every aspect I would need to know including legal ramifications and laws, gun safety and etiquette, as well as real life scenarios. Scott was an excellent and patient instructor, starting with proper handgrip using fake guns, basic shooting with an air gun, and target shooting with a registered handgun and live ammunition.

His calm manner and expertise gave me confidence in rendering a weapon safe, teaching proper storage and access of weapons. I never thought I would ever shoot a gun, but now enjoy it and will keep my new skill.

Thank you SDS/ Shoot-Don’t-Shoot for offering this non-threatening, informative and very effective course.

Scott,

I really enjoyed meeting you in the CCW class yesterday. I have to tell you, I was BEYOND impressed with the entire class. My husband got home from work this morning at 0400 and couldn’t wait to hear all about it. While I was getting ready for work, I went on and on telling him all about you and everything I learned. I am so thankful I found you online.

 

I can’t say enough about the quality of the class content or the way you teach. I left there feeling like I had not only learned so much, but I had gained so much confidence as well. I spent at least a half hour telling him everything I learned and how great you were. I am just so impressed with the content you emphasized on, as well as what you didn’t waste time on. I felt like every minute was spent on valuable information. Even when there was a story, it was for the purpose of a valuable learning lesson. I loved how you took the time to teach me about jams and clearing my weapon, because you recognized that was a concern of mine.

 

I told him “this guy is so professional…I mean he really knows what he’s doing. He doesn’t have to be something he’s not, everything about him is spot on, and I’m sure his business partner Buck, is the same way.” He is really impressed, and loves the idea of me taking future classes from you. I hope he has the opportunity to meet you sometime.

 

Thank you again for everything yesterday. With everything I learned and the environment I learned it in, your fee is an outstanding value. I look forward to my next class with you Scott.

Sincerely,

Scott & Buck,

Thank you, I really enjoyed the CCW class and look forward in furthering my education in safe gun control. Your teachings on awareness and how to protect my family by learning techniques  to get out of possible bad situations, WITHOUT the use of lethal force. I feel your classes empower people to new options in advance thinking and to getaway from possible bad situations, before there is a life-threatening situation.

Again, you two are awesome instructors.

Sincerely,

Scott and Buck,

Despite the rain, wind, and cold, you guys put on an awesome CCW Class today. What a great turnout! I’ve taken 6 CCW classes, including two other states, from various instructors, and you two are head-and-shoulders above the rest.

You provided quality instruction, relevant information and hand-outs, excellent shooting techniques, humor, interactive discussions, and, refreshingly, lessons on how to AVOID a deadly conflict.

Oh, and the actual shooting part was fun too. I got way more out of it than I paid.

Thanks for the great value,

Scott,

“I recently attended one of your CCW Range Courses as an observer. I am a retired law enforcement officer who spent most of my career supervising and training others in the use of force, including with firearms. I was impressed with your professionalism, teaching commitment and upbeat attitude towards the students. I will surely recommend you for interested family and friends seeking firearms training and CCW certifications.”

Cordially,

Mr. John K.

Hi Scott,

I want to thank you for the outstanding instructions you gave John and I last Saturday. Your teaching professionalism and instructional presentation made the class very informative and enjoyable. You can see your passion in presenting the correct way of gun safety and handling.

When I left I felt that I had the knowledge to go the next step in my firearms training level. Thank You, and I will be giving your business card to others I know that are looking for an excellent instructor.

Looking forward to attending future classes.

Scott,

I want to again thank you for a great CCW Renewal Class.  My business partner and I both agreed that we “more than got our money’s worth.” The attention to detail was incredible and very real by you including life stories and personal experiences, yet the time still went by fast. You never once made either of us feel uncomfortable, in fact, it was just the opposite. Both of us are also looking forward to some more of your instruction… hopefully in the near future.

Thanks!

Scott and Buck,

Thank you for such a great experience, I am so glad that I chose your Class for my CCW instruction. You two are a perfect balance of experience and personalities to make the class informative as well as fun. By profession I instruct people on a daily basis and I can say that without a doubt the two of you are excellent at both content as well as making the material interesting and enjoyable.

I will definitely be pursuing ongoing classes for improvement and will continue my education through SDS. If I hear of anyone that is looking for classes or if you ever need a referral please feel free to pass my name on to anyone.

Thank you,

I just wanted to thank you and Buck for the CCW class yesterday. I did find it very informative and fun. You guys really seem to care about the different levels of the class members and you do not just go through the motions. You obviously want to impart the proper information without all the bravado and arrogance some firearms people can have. Thanks again and I’m sure I’ll be in another of your classes in the future. Good Luck Guys.

Many Thanks,

Scott, 

You and Buck did a great job during the CCW classroom and field classes. I liked how you split time on teaching different parts of the class, but both had the same goal. I really liked that Buck kept his eye on me during our qualifying and wasn’t afraid to use me as an example. Things like that help everyone. Thank you again for providing a class with instructors that have tremendous field experience and knowledge, especially when it comes to “Shoot Don’t Shoot.”

Thanks again,
