Nice people with a pro fire arm agenda. Competent instruction. Fun pretending to shoot...whatever is up on the screen. Nice way to "get off frustration" with a big bang.

Took the 1,2,3 Pistol training course and also a one on one private training on the VirTra 300. Both excellent courses conducted by trained professionals with years of experience. This is definitely a must for someone that is serious about defense training.

This was an awesome experience and I would do it again (and again)! If you get the opportunity to get "wired up" so you know when you are hit, it adds more realism to the situations. Great place to have a party as well!
