“Thanks for a great class. I learned everything I expected to learn & more! While I still have some anxiety about guns & shooting, I am FAR more comfortable than before the class & I know that my comfort level will increase as I continue to practice what I’ve learned. I’ve already told several friends about how great the class was. I will definitely be back to the Sandy Springs Gun Club & Range.  Thanks again for a great class!” -Robin

“Excellent job tonight! My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our time with you, and we could not be happier with the results and just having a little more knowledge about handguns and they’re function.

We are certainly looking forward to spending more time with you and learning more and getting a lot more experience with its usage. Thank you again for your time and expertise – you are truly gifted at what you do, and we have the utmost respect for your knowledge and talent. We’re looking for forward to seeing you soon.” -Kowan W.

“My husband mentioned he sent you our appreciation for the course and further education/fun with you now that you are family in our eyes.  I wanted to mirror that and extend my personal satisfaction with your training in helping me become a little more comfortable with such a new concept. While I am not new to handguns and rifles I am new to actually shooting them, if you couldn’t tell. I cannot wait to return to test out a few types (especially a Smith & Wesson M&P) so we can make an educated purchase to safely become comfortable with one at home as well as at the range. Look forward to seeing you again and gaining more knowledge.” -Nissa W.
