My girlfriend and I are both relatively new to firearms. Both of us had been recreational shooting with friends twice, but never received any proper training.
We recently decided we wanted to buy a gun for home defense and for recreational shooting. However, we first wanted to get adequate training for safety reasons, and also wanted some experience handling different firearms to help us make our decision about what to get. Furthermore, I would like to note that due to my work schedule, my girlfriend is often home alone at night while I’m at work, and we both believe that if anything ever happened, it would be best if she had training she could fall back on rather than having to figure out what to do in the moment.
Our training with Yonty turned out to not only be incredibly valuable but also a lot of fun. Yonty’s class was very thorough and covered operating, aiming, and firing of different types of firearms as well as proper stance, concealment, and threat response tactics. I would say my favorite part of the course though, and the most valuable was the live fire exercises/drills that Yonty had us do. Although the course was short, I now feel like I would know how to respond and how to function in most threat situations.
If you are new to firearms, or are even an experienced shooter who is looking for more training, I would highly recommend one of Yonty’s classes. He is thorough, safety conscious, has expert knowledge on all topics relating to firearms, defense tactics, and security, and is also great at teaching and explaining. I think anyone who takes his courses will feel they walked away with more knowledge, confidence, and instinct when it comes to using a firearm.
