The BEAR Defensive Pistol Class is an amazing addition to your skillset. If you are a beginner or an experienced shooter you will definitely increase your defensive mindset and abilities. – Dave F

Don and Marie taught us situational awareness in today’s world.  We still hope for the best but we’re better prepared of the worst.  Don brought his course to our little community group.  We brought the food and kept costs to a minimal. There’s always the possibility of one or more events with long-lasting repercussions.  Are you ready for that? Is your family, your home, your community?

This was a very detailed and informative shooting class.  I just thought I knew how to use my firearm effectively.   – J.D.
