This is my second class with Bert and I’ve already signed up for a third. His knowledge and experience are seemingly unending and he’s a concise and patient professional. Lucky to learn from him.

This class was so much fun, and I learned so much. Already signed up for the next one. This class is a must for everyone. Best instructor around!!
Anita H.
I always learn a lot from Bert's classes. He teaches many scenarios on defending your family from different threats, These skills are perishable and therefore require practice, which I why I return to his classes. Excellent as always!

Bert is an awesome instructor! Very down to earth and provided great instruction on how to improve my form for my rifle. The course layout and drills was to simulate real world situations and it worked great. I will be signing up for more classes for sure!

There's always more to learn. This class was the first that I've attended that covered in depth knowledge of local laws, tips, scenarios, and firing. Highly recommend this class for every shooter, no matter their experience.

Top notch class, Bert has a way of getting the key points to everyone and his eye to details and corrections is worth its weight in goal.

Bert is a fantastic instructor. This Pistol class is a MUST for anyone who carries for self defense. This is a class where another instructor comes to learn from the best. Don’t miss out on an opportunity to take a class with Bert. I’ll be back again.

Nothing better than training more and more with awesome instructor and nice classmates.
Annop B.
Great instructor, great information, God willing I will never need to use it, but if I am faced with a home intruder, I’m confident the training received will have been beneficial as to the outcome.
Tom S.
Bert is fantastic. He makes the class fun and comfortable and makes sure we were all at ease going at our speed.
David P.
Excellent class, as usual. This was my second class with Bert as an instructor, and it was well worth the time. This low light pistol course is a rather rare offering when looking to learn skills that could be used in real life. I will keep coming back as Bert creates courses that go well beyond the basics of many other instructors. Love the more "real life" type of shooting that includes drawing from holsters, movement, decision making, and various helpful techniques to try out to see if it fits your particular ability and equipment.
Michael K.
This class was incredibly valuable. It's one thing to shoot at static targets at the range, Its another thing entirely to train for the potential of a life or death situation. Bert did a great job presenting somewhat complex topics in an easy to digest manor and the class was highly engaging and fun. I look forward to the opportunity to take any other classes he's offering.
Pierce F.

I have taken many firearms training classes and Bert’s are always top notch.

Knowledgable instructor, many good key points made.
Alissa W.
GREAT class and instructor, Bert Winfield! I finished the class feeling like I wanted more classes... it’s really fun when I get past my nerves lol but overall I feel more comfortable with my handgun and better prepared in home protection. Also a plus, I loved having all ladies there and their support as well. I’m grateful for everyone and the experience/lessons :)
