Chris I learned so much from your class thanks so much. I’d tell everyone I know to go see you. Your very knowledgeable and answered all my questions very well.
I really enjoyed Chris’ class more than the initial class that I took almost five years ago with another guy. Chris presents all of his education material in a way that makes it interesting and memorable for his students using case scenarios, videos, and physical objects.
I thought this was an excellent class with lots of great information. I thought the materials were extremely relevant and Chris delivered them very well. I loved his humor.
This was a renewal class for me. Chris answered everyone’s questions and was very professional. Great, informative class.
Great class. I learned a lot. Thank you.
Instructor is extremely knowledgeable, and gave a ton of useful information.
Great instructor have taken last two renewal classes through Chris, knowledgeable dude and keeps it comical.
Enjoyed the class very much! Think you did a very good job of covering the material, wasn’t boring at all!
Chris’s class is very informative and offers many other solutions to avoid the unnecessary use of a gun. Having never handled a gun much prior to his class, he made me feel comfortable and was completely understanding of my nervousness. Chris did an excellent job with the presentation keeping everyone’s attention for the entire time. I highly recommend Chris’s class to anyone thinking of taking a firearm’s class. Thanks Chris, you were great!
The class is always knowledgeable.
Being a veteran, I was impressed how the class was taught. Chris also explains the law pretty good. It wasn’t rushed, and it was explained in simple terms. I do recommend this course, if for nothing else just to refresh yourself.
I think the class was great. I think Chris was very Thorough with his delivery of the information.
Very informative, funny at times teacher new his shit.
Very informative and knowledgeable about carry laws. I learned a lot of things I had no idea on during class. When my renewal comes around I will definitely take Chris’s class again
If you are a novice, Chris’ class is for you. He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the permit to carry. There are no such thing as stupid questions in a firearm self defense class, as he went above and beyond to answer all the questions our class had. He brought examples of almost all hand guns and even holsters and let the class ask and talk about them. I will be highly recommending Chris to anyone I know that wants to take a permit to carry class. I hope he is still doing the class in five years as I look forward to using him next time I renew.
It was a informative class with very valuable information. He went through all the specifics of the laws and knew what he was talking about with laws/lawyers to back it up. As a renewal, I feel much more comfortable carrying than I did after my first class with someone else.
Chris is extremely knowledgeable and presents the permit to carry information in an “easy to understand” method. The use of videos and scenarios help drive home the topics.
Very good class. Learned very much.
The instructor gave a great presentation, and was very well spoken.
This was my second class with Chris and if we are both around in 5 years I’ll take my third class with him.
Class was well organized, well executed, zero wasted time, and the classroom portion was not drawn out and boring. Chris kept the class involved and covered the requirements
Very Knowledgable and Helpful instructor! Feel comfortable calling with any future questions
As my first time in the class i believe that Chris was an amazing teacher he used comedy which everyone loves and Chris taught us situations that the average civilian could encounter and educated us not to scare us but to truthfully give us the knowledge of what could happen in any situation.
I enjoyed the class’s informal / humor type of instruction / setting.
Very good and thorough class!
I thought the class was very informative. Lots of information I wasn’t even aware of.
Chris was once again very knowledgeable and made sure everybody understood what he was saying. It is a comfortable class for people that are both inexperienced and experienced people. Strongly recommend class to anybody that is thinking about it.
Class was great and very informative!
Very good class. I was very nervous going into it but the instructor and environment was so welcoming and open. I immediately felt at ease. I’m glad I took the class as well, very educational and eye opening in many ways! Thank you again!
Great class, really appreciated the extra time you spent with me at the change going through the whole process considering my lack of experience.
I feel I got much more out of sitting through Chris’ class rather than taking it online. He was an excellent teacher, and answered all my questions! I will definitely be returning for my renewal, because this man is an expert in this field!
I really liked this class, you kept me focus, and spoke loud enough that I was able to hear….Thank you!!
I shadowed Chris in this class last weekend to become a instructor myself. This was hands down the BEST class I have ever experienced. I feel like I know a large amount on firearms and training in general, and I learned a ton of information that I didn’t know before. I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone. If you’re new to firearms or have been shooting your whole, this class is for everyone. The class covered every topic from handgun safety and operation all the way to legal information and scenarios. I’m still blown away by how much I learned. Chris also provides 100% satisfaction guarantee which many others don’t. Well done Chris one of a kind class, you will NOT find another class like this! I look forward to learning so much more from you.
I learned a lot from this class, not just about a permit to carry but general home safety as well. Chris is very knowledgeable and helpful. I would strongly recommend this class to everyone.
Great class,Thank you look forward to your class in another 5 years.
Chris did a great job! My husband and I both took the class with him.
Chris, This is the most comprehensive gun class I have taken. I left the class with such a broader understanding of self defense and a far higher level of understanding and responsibility toward the decision making of the of deadly force. Extremely impressed with your knowledge means of getting that duplicated to the masses of asses. Have already recommended you to a friend and am feeling a responsibility to do more meaningful practice. Thanks.
Chris I would like to thank you for the class today. I have learned a lot not only of rules and regulations but also just the simplicity of difference in hand guns. I walked in today knowing about shot guns and some rifles etc. hand guns where not my thing at all but after today’s class I feel comfortable shooting and dis arming loaded hand guns. I would also like to take your class on pistols/hand guns to better improve my knowledge of firearms. Thanks again look forward to talking soon.
Phenomenal class. I would highly recommend this to anyone and I already have!! It not only was a class on a permit to carry but included personal and home safety. A wake up call to stay out of the white zone” You offered alternatives to carrying a weapon that I could suggest to a friend to feel safe with. There may have been some that came to the class to get their certification for a “Permit to Carry” however as a responsible instructor you reminded us of the responsibility and the laws that go with the permit to carry. Thank you for giving your time to share your passion.
I enjoyed the class. You are a great instructor and it shows that u really care about people and teaching them the right way to go about doing things. I will definitely be telling friends about the class and hopefully get a few of them to take it with you. Thanks for a great day, being able to shoot your gun and the conversation. I look forward to being able to carry and feel a lot more safe and knowledgeable about the process.
Great class, won’t change a thing!
The class was very informative and felt it was very well taught.
I’ve been around firearms all of my life (40 years) and have told a lot of people what you also mentioned about your children. Teach them respect, let them shoot and expose firearms to them. Takes out the novelty and makes kids respect them. Enjoyed the class and enjoyed the legal aspects of what you taught. Obviously some of the material covered will be redundant if a person is familiar/comfortable with firearms.
You were an amazing instructor and you kept the class funny while also being serious and informative.
Great class, great coverage
You kept it interesting and I enjoyed it
VERY good class..we were very impressed. The class was very informative. You did a good job of keeping the class moving along; the PP usage was very engaging and I never found myself looking at my watch! I want all my family members to take the class whether they decide to carry or not as the safety part of it is something everyone needs to hear. I’ve told them all about having a home protection plan and each one has said that they’ve never thought of that before but agreed they need one. thanks much for taking your time to teach others about this important subject!
Excellent class made it very easy for me to understand.
The information was presented in a professional manner. The instructor was very knowledgeable about the subject matter and presentation was pleasant.
I felt that Chris had a lot of experience, insight, and expertise that he shared with the class. I feel that I got more than my money’s worth by having him give his phone number and email for support for the 5 year term of the permit. I would and already have recommended this class to my friends and family. Thank you.
Great class. Really made you think. Learned a lot
Very Good class. Thank you for the advice.
The class population was way larger than I anticipated, however it didn’t interfere with core topics. the lecture platform was hard to imagine but the content kept it moving forward and kept your interest. The option to not pay for the class until after it is complete is a nice feature. If you find that you do not want to follow thru with getting certified, the option to walk away without having to pay is un heard of! Over all I would highly recommend your class. great job educating!
Everything else was great, and I would highly recommend the course.
This course was very informative. I took a permit class years ago, not yours, and it wasn’t even close in information and professionalism. I will definitely recommend Precision to others.
Loved the class, loved the humor. Laid back, didn’t try to scare us off, but rather inform us, which I’m grateful for. Did an excellent job, especially under pressure with their elite audience.
Chris, Thanks again for allowing me to join. Mark and I enjoyed your class and feel much better about handling a firearm. Your flow of the class was very good and you kept it interesting. 4 hrs is a long time to talk and the time went by fast. The videos were impactful and I would add more if you can. Thanks again Brian
I think what was so helpful is that this isn’t “only” about getting a piece of paper so that I can carry, but in fact there are many things you can do for yourself and your loved ones before you’d ever need to use your weapon. People are reminded of that, many times, in your class. You give many real life pointers.
Your class was more informative and interesting that my last class at Cabelas.
I thought the class moved along really well. I especially liked when you spoke about situational awareness. I believe that to be very important and you covered it thoroughly.
I thought the class was great it seems like you covered the laws in better terminology.
Chris, you were very informative and the information you gave to us as a class for interesting.
I thought you were very Knowledgeable and well informed well spoken and easy to listen to. I thought you gave a lot of good common sense advise. Thank you.
Very knowledgeable, it was a great experience and all the information about every situation will help everyone in the future. I learned many things that i didn’t know before i entered the class. Thank you for the great class.
Class size was a bit larger than I expected but you kept the class moving along nicely. Felt a little more range time would have been nice but understand the class was running a bit behind schedule. Would take your class again in the future and will recommend it to friends. Thank you.
knowing that your mind was elsewhere….. (baby) You did a fantastic job! THANX, I did learn a lot.
The class was full of great information and was presented to us extremely well. I think that the women only class was perfect for some of us that had no experience with guns.
Good class; provided information needed.
Thought it was a great class!
I thought Chris covered everything very well. I know I certainly learned a lot. The atmosphere was very nice I feel that I got my money’s worth. If anyone is looking to get their permit to carry give Chris a call.
Great class thanks again!
Very well informative on several different questionable categories. Felt like any questions I was ready to ask, got answered before I needed to ask them. Thank you very much
I thought the class was great. Very thorough, and I liked that you have so many tips for home protection plans etc. That was an element that I was unaware that would be included with training, but thoroughly enjoyed.
Very informative enjoyed class
As a person who has held a gun in his hands since a very young age and a firm believer in my Second Amendment rights I came away from this class with much more knowledge than I ever expected too. I felt super comfortable in the classroom the hours flew by with the humor and excellent instructions and even the range test was extremely knowledgeable I will definitely recommend to anyone who is trying to obtain or renew his or her carry permit
I got way more out of this class than I was expecting to. I was very impressed with the information on all the options on defending yourself in addition to guns, and having a safety plan for if someone unwelcome enters your home.
I got alot out of this class and I want my wife and daughter to take it ASAP!!!
I enjoyed your class very much. I learned more than I thought I would. The reason I wanted to take the class was so that if my boyfriend ever left his gun in my vehicle, I would be ok and not get in trouble. I now know that I want to be able to protect my family and myself. I feel more confident in being able to carry a gun safely and know when and how to use it. Thank you!!
We got the information that would make us safe while being a Permit to Carry holder. It was a very educational course including things that I would have never thought about before taking the class. I am going to definitely recommend this class to everyone I know. He gave us resources to find information on our own as well as explained the law thoroughly.
I must say, I’ve had a lot of training in self defense with my work; and this is by far the best class I have ever taken. This instructor left me feeling more self confident about being able to understand the use and providing the knowledge of using a firearm for my own self defense should the occasion arise. I feel more confident in my handling of a pistol after this much needed, very informative class. Chris, our instructor was very pleasant, very sure of himself and show us respect and taught us how to and what to look for if we feel threatened……I would very highly recommend this class, and will do so to my husband so he too can take this class in the very near future, which is sometime in early November….I thank Chris so much for all of his help, he is an awesome instructor……
Thought you had great patience with some of the members in the class! Mixture of humor was good!
I will admit I was really nervous about taking the class considering my knowledge of guns is limited. I enjoyed the class very much and now have more confidence in not only the gun safety aspect but also the self defense. I enjoyed how he made it very easy to understand. Looking forward to taking advanc classes to better educate myself. Great tips on having an action plan for the whole family. Chris did a wonderful job and I will recommend his class to everyone I know.
I have taken the class before, and since I have taken it the last time a few things have changed. Thanks for the info. Great class. I enjoyed it. Thank you and I hope you continue to teach a great class.
Great class, very informative! Really enjoyed the relaxed nature and use of humor! Will definitely be recommending this class
Nothing! Your class was fun and very knowledgeable!
I am certified with the State of Min to teach ATV safety and am also a Trail Ambassador for the State. I also had taught Firearms Safety thru the Pine Island Jaycees for years. If you ever see a need for Help give me a call. Chris. I thought you explained situations to avoid very well. I was concerned on where I could legally carry and where i cannot you explained that very well. I thought you did an excellent Con Carry training class. I would recommend your class to everyone . Thank you Sir
Very informative. Never made you feel like you asked a stupid question
I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to protect themselves and their families. Even if you don’t want to carry in public, the class is still extremely beneficial when it comes to knowing the law within your home. Chris covers anything and everything that you need to know. I am a fairly experienced shooter and I still took quite a bit of beneficial information away from the class. Regardless of whether you are an experienced shooter or are just looking to buy your first firearm for personal defense and recreational shooting, this class will literally teach you everything from the basics of firearm use, storage, and cleanliness, to which holsters and various accessories are best fit for you. Knowing more about the law doesn’t hurt either. I was pretty blown away by the depth of this class and have already recommended it to my family and friends. Keep doing what you do Chris, you’re obviously pretty great at it.
It was great! The class time was right around 5 hours, but definitely did not seem that long. Kept my interest the entire time. Lots of good information.
Great information it really help me to grasp and understand the responsibility in carrying a weapon to protect my family and loved ones. If and when I’m face with a situation that requires that responsibility I know I am well informed. I will be more than happy to tell others about your class.
Great class that keeps things interesting and fun. Covers all the bases including some you often don’t think about. Happy to answer even the strangest of hypothetical questions from some interesting people.
Am very happy I took the class! Was glad was able to have a friend sign up (even though it was last minute…instructor answered phone right away and was kind and helpful from beginning to end!). My friend is much more practiced than I am with handguns (have mostly shot rifles or shotguns), so was a good support. I enjoyed that the class was offered to only women, and had prizes and information catered to specifically helping females adjust to carrying firearms. Having many guns and holsters for students to view was awesome–also, having examples of mace, stun guns, and tasers was nice. I actually purchased a stun gun from Amazon last night based upon what instructor showed us. Having all the overview of legalities on both reasonable and deadly force was wonderful, and very helpful for understanding the laws in MN. I was nervous at the range because it had been a very long time since I’d shot any kind of handgun, and had never shot a handgun involving a magazine. Am definitely looking forward to practicing and improving greatly in this area! Instructor was good at making me feel safe and capable of handling the handgun, even though it was such a new experience for me.
Loved the class. Learned a lot of valuable information and will defiantly recommend this course and refer Chris to my family and friends!
It is a very informational class.
Chris, you joked about not being a very good speaker but you really are, and that comes with knowledge of the topic. I really liked the scenario areas, the what would you do… anyone can read the law but to put into real life situations makes it more understandable.
Chris, Everything that was covered from start to finish was extremely informative and helpful. You were very laid back and made the class feel at ease as I think sometimes people are intimidated by the whole gun issue in general. I might not have attended if it wasn’t for the all-women class you offered and encourage you to continue to offer these as I’ve already recommended you to many of my girl friends (and guy friends). You knew your material, were very professional, but yet were very approachable if people had questions or what not.
I really enjoyed the content of the class- and the videos were informative. It was difficult for me to watch the ones of people shooting themselves- I truly just do not like gore/violence. However, I see the importance of showing that even the most professional people- who have been handling guns for a long time, can let their guard down and make a dumb mistake. In the past I would have classified myself a as a female who wouldn’t have owned or carried a gun. This class gave me the knowledge to make an informed choice about when and why I would carry a gun. I now understand the weight and responsibility of this choice. I also have more of an understanding of situations that I would consider using a firearm. I also appreciated the self-defense and home-defense portions of the class. I was able to communicate a lot of this information to our family, so they are more aware of their surroundings, and our family is safer as a result. Overall, I would highly recommend Chris and his approach to anyone considering carrying a personal firearm.
I learned things that about personal protection, handling guns, laws and precarious situations that I never thought about prior to taking this class – but cannot stop thinking about since!
This was a great class. The instructor was very knowledgeable & also had a great sense of humor, making it an even better experience. He is also very accommodating to the students’ needs, in my case I had to leave a little early to get to work on time so he let me shoot first. I’m sure I may have been eligible for a discount, but I felt that full price was well worth it.
Very informative, great class. Thank you!
I highly recommend this class and will be doing so to all my friends and family that are in the area. I have been shooting my whole life (60 Years) and am a Hunter Safety Instructor for over 15 years and the information in this class was very informative even to me. I thought this old dog knew all the tricks but was taught new ones in this class!
Great class! Chris was awesome and my sister will be there February !
I especially liked that the class I took was for women only. At no time were we made to feel stupid or that any or our questions were dumb.
Very knowledgeable trainer and in depth info! Being a beginner with this, I found it very helpful and am excited to learn more about gun safety after taking this class.
Chris had a great time at your class thank you very much for your time! Wanted to let you know I gave you a extra 25 dollars as a tip so if you were wondering where the extra money came from.
As a Vet, password was reminder I never thought about in the home
The class covered all the basic safety areas and legal side of things What Can I Do To Improve The Class?Nothing, class was great
I learned a lot more than I thought I would he was great a teaching us thanks again
I loved the humor – that helps keep interest. I was never bored in class as you kept the subject on task. You allowed sufficient time for each topic and were open to questions. I didn’t have any questions because you were thorough with your knowledge as you taught the subjects. The frequent breaks were a nice touch to allow us time to stand and get the blood flowing again. I was impressed with the class. I really dislike guns and was concerned about taking this class …. but you eased my fears and apprehension! My knowledge of guns and gun training is nil. I thought you did a terrific job for those of us that are truly at the baby stages of learning. I appreciate that you spoke in a manner we could all understand. At this time I really don’t know how you could improve the class … unless you allowed more heat in the room. It was chilly in there. When I come back in five years to update my certificate, maybe I will have some suggestions for you at that time. Right now, I’m pleased with the training I received.
I feel all people who are even thinking about some day buying a gun for personal protection should take this class! I feel Chris that you did a great job of getting the point across about safety. and I especially like the way you are able to talk TO people. instead of like some instructors, above people.
Chris was a great speaker , easy to stay awake in class by keeping us entertained
I was the only girl in his class that day and I enjoyed it! I thought that Chris was very knowledgeable and I liked that he used what he would do and what he and his family would do in situations. I also thought the videos were a good tool to use as well because it broke up the wording slides in between topics which made it more interesting for me.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? This was my first time taking this class but I left feeling more knowledgeable about guns and gun safety and what I should and shouldn’t do in situations. For me, I thought the class was very informal and like I has stated above for feedback I don’t think there would be any improving because I thought it was thoroughly put together! Thanks!
I thought the class was awesome, found out a lot of information I had no idea about before. I felt more at ease with my fire arm after the class. I would recommend it very much
I honestly feel like Chris did a great job best class ever and I highly recommend it to others very nice guy hes calm and collected great job Chris
Very enjoyable. Thank you.
Anyone who can keep my attention for over four hours with only a few short breaks I rate quite highly. You kept my attention, were interesting, had a good delivery, and I walked out of there having learned something useful.
I appreciated the fact that the class moved along at good pace, there were no dead zones and not a lot of useless chatter.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? girls in bikinis as props, the only thing I could think of.
This class taught me so much. Chris was really good at giving scenarios about different conflicts.
This class had all the information I needed for my carry permit. The information given made me think. Great class recommend it to anyone.
I thought the class was well done. This class wasn’t the first one I have done. I liked the content and how knowledgeable Chris was. Immediately after the class I recommended the class to my mom, who is looking to get her permit to carry.
It was too long, covered more than I needed it to.
This was my second class and was by far more informative.
Thank you so much for this class. I really appreciated your approach to safety, avoiding risky situations, carrying, and the law versus real-world cases. Before your class, I secretly questioned whether or not permit holders were just gun nuts. I have since realized that’s not the case and I am looking forward to getting mine.
He was amazing!! I hope he is still teaching this class in 5years when I have to retake it! What Can I Do To Improve The Class? It was perfect! His wife should be proud
Great class overall. I’ve been a recreational shooter for many years and have been going in the direction of serious personal protection and shooting proficiency in the last couple of years. I especially appreciated the statistics, awareness/victim selection and fight or flight/body alarm response sections. I knew most of this info already but think it is very important to include and the content was presented well. I did not know the bit about peppers pray/mace and dogs.
Great Course!! Great Information!! Will see you in five years for a re-cert, (Hopefully It will be a tad bit warmer next time…..)
I appreciated how approachable Chris was. He wasn’t scary and didn’t make the material overwhelming.
This was the first time I had ever fired a gun. Even though there was a lot of people watching the instructor made me feel very comfortable.
The course content was up to date and relevant. I gave a 9 because there is always room for improvement. Great job!
I was really impressed with all of the information that was covered and happy to find that Chris also distributed the forms necessary to apply for the carry permit. It was clear that Chris was extremely knowledgeable about everything discussed and had very good references to back up everything he was saying. The class made me feel 100 times more confident about the decision to apply for the carry permit.
Chris, I’ve been a Firearms instructor for the Dept I worked for, I’ve taken all kinds of Firearms Trainings thru Law Enforcement as well as civilian instructors. Your class was outstanding. I really enjoyed it and have told others about the training you do. I was very impressed at hold you handle handguns in class and present the different aspects of them to the class. That is very important. Thank you for letting me be a part of your class.
Completed my class in New Richland today. I can’t say enough about how professional and how thorough Chris was. I would recommend anyone in the state of Minnesota to make the drive to experience the fine gun/law education they have to offer.
This was a very very long class. It was supposed to be done at 2:30 and were leaving the class room portion at 3. It was hard to sit and listen for so long. You made the class fun and entertaining though. What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Less information. I felt like my brain was overloaded.
It was great he was very helpful especially for me to be a first time shooter he made me very comfortable he was pretty Dang awesome three thumbs up.
Chris, Thank you for accommodating a request for a women’s only class. You did a great job adjusting to the level of experience for the participants of the class. From what I could tell you made everyone comfortable enough to ask questions that you did an excellent job answering. Thank you Tara
Very informative. A lot of information in a short time. Chris keeps the class upbeat and interesting. He very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions during the class. I was impressed by the time he took to help a couple of students on the range, who had never handled a firearm. I am sure his time showing them compassion and understanding helped ease any feelings of being uncomfortable. Definitely interested in any advanced training offered by Precision Plus. Great job Chris!!!!
I took the class yesterday it was a great class very informative I would recommend it to everyone
I had a great time Chris was very knowledgeable in his material and had a great presentation .
Thank You Chris
Very surprised by the turn out. Must mean your doing something right. I will definitely recommend this class to others. Keep up the good work. See you again in 5 years.
I recommended your class to many people and found out you were having another class. Very good job with the class.
Very well taught! But very to the point and the examples were awesome. I would refer you to anyone who asked. I think some of the humor was well placed. My last favorite thing was how we got into the class room and got down to business.
Awesome class.Yes the word class is correct. I learned more than I ever expected. Chris was excellent in getting a point across so it made sense relating to me personally. he made me aware of not only the laws and how they are perceived by the courts.. i thank him for that..
It was great, my wife and I both have taken the class at different times and were so glad that we did, great instructor, left with a lot of knowledge.
As a female gun owner, I felt welcome in the class and on the range. Thanks
The class was phenomenal, you will learn a lot about when it is ok to draw or not draw your firearm. Chris was very informative and is willing to help you with any questions you have. The class was a great class and Chris had humor too which made it even more fun. Quite a few of us got some laughs in. I highly recommend taking this class! Thanks Chris. You were a great instructor.
Awesome class! I learned a ton about not only gun safety but general self defense tips. Instructor kept it on track and allowed plenty of time for questions. The class was informative but laid back.
Great class. I would recommend it for every person even if not interested in owning or carrying a gun. Thank you. The class was great. The thing I would like to learn more about is the natural psychology and immediate instinct response of being attacked and how to overcome that. For example: You mentioned the adrenaline rush makes fingers numb and more diffucult to control. It will be grear to give more time and emphasis to training how to handle guns while under stress.
I feel you did a very good job teaching us about the laws and everything. Every question I had coming to the class you answered before I had the chance to ask. Your knowledge was impressive and you had great advice. So with all that said I wanna thank you for doing this and taking the time to.
CharlesChris was a great teacher! A++. Very informative, and was very in depth on the subjects. I thought I knew most things going into the class, but I learned a whole lot more than I had expected.
Excellent online course for renewing my MN carry permit. Very nice instructor. I have already recommended the course to friends and coworkers. Good price.
Very knowledgeable on gun safety and permit to carry and the laws
Good class very informative. Donuts /Cookies and drinks were a nice unexpected touch Thank You!
I learned more than I expected to be mentally prepared to defend myself. The knowledge to know what I can & can’t do to not only protect myself but to be more prepared to take the proper steps to protect myself legally as well. Will definitely recommend this class-more knowledge=more power.
Chris, Great class, my husband has had 4 classes over the years and I have had 1, your class has been the most enjoyable and really touch base on things that a person needs to know when looking at a permit to carry. Nice Job! we will be back. Cristy
You did an excellent job making the class both interesting and educational! As someone who came I to it with hardly any knowledge of handguns I feel you did a fantastic job covering what I needed to know!!
Class was very well run. Very useful information.
Chris is a real good instructor. Only would have been nice if it wasn’t so darned cold.
Great class. And a fun guy to be around. Class was perfect. You explained things in very well detail and anwsered any questions very well.
The class was very informative. Nice mix of humor and facts. Almost wish it were a full day class because it seemed to have gone through some of the facts a little fast. I talked to my co-workers about the class today and some of the information that was covered. Just the safety part in regards to walking away from situations and the consequences would be a fantastic seminar for teens at high schools. I was very glad my whole family was there and it was more than worth the money. I would like to know if you give any other classes and when you will be in the area to teach them.
Thanks for being so knowledgeable and safe. I’ll be sending more people your way!
Thought the class was very real with no bullshit as is what you sometimes get from these things . Very informative liked the extra magazines and pamphlets. Good job
Great coverage of every aspect needed to be safe and within my legal rights before, during, and after the need to defend my family and self.
Great instruction. Very complete and well paced.What Can I Do To Improve The Class?Can’t think of anything to improve it.
Although the class got a little long. The instructor covered far more than I thought he would. I had several questions going in and he covered all of them without me having to ask anything.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class?
I cant really pin point anything that needs improvement. It was a good class and Im glad I took the time to take it. Thanks for the experience and knowledge.
I think everybody that is competent should take the class weather they decide to carry or not.
I am a novice who has not fired a gun in 35 years. My father and I used to spend a lot of time at the Chester Gun Club. Due to a recent surgery the strength in my right arm is not what it once was. Today I had extreme difficulty where strength was required, such as pushing back the slide and holding the gun steady for any length of time. Hopefully with continued practice this will greatly improve. With just the short time I spent with Chris he made me feel comfortable and confidant. He took the extra time to explain how the mechanics of the gun work, how to correctly hold the gun, how to line up the sites and how to aim and shoot correctly. He allowed me to try a few different types of guns so that I could get a feel for each one. I have great respect for this instructor and plan on taking my continued training seriously. I am excited to find a gun that will work for me and one that I can master. Takes a certain type of person to have that kind of patience
Thank you Chris, I have had a firearms safety class on my “To Do” list for a long time. You did a wonderful job making the information relative and understandable. I left your class feeling comfortable that I will be a responsible gun owner.
Was a great class. Impressed with presentation and tools.
Thought you did great job
Excellent presentation. Lots of very good info. Went a little over on the time frame but well worth it.
I thought the class was excellent!! Chris was very knowledgeable and portrayed it with ease.
Had a great time, instructor was very knowlegdable and what he was teaching us
Class was very informational and Chris did an amazing job talking for how long he did and keeping the whole class engaged.
Learned a great deal of the do’s and don’ts along with the proper equipment. Information on where to look for more information when needed. Above all the responsibility of owning and carrying.
Thank you for taking time with us. It is people like you offering a good service enhancing Constitutional Rights that I hope can get rich by your efforts!! What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Don’t be afraid to remind us over and over that the cartridges you are ejecting onto the floor are not live. I saw some people squirm a little as you were loading and unloading. Also, your gentle nature is obvious. You should feel free to raise your voice on occasion, to break up the monotone nature of the information being taught. God Bless You!!!
Very informative. Answered some questions that I thought I knew, but didn’t. Took time to explain things.
Very nice job on covering all the material and having firearms available to use on the range.
Chris Marquette was very helpful in explaining scenarios, and gun care. Covered many topics and answered many questions. I am glad i signed up for the class.
AnonymousIt was a great class, you were able to keep my attention…which isn’t easy to do (my mind wanders)
Excellent information. Held my attention. I was glad to see that during the range time, it was one- on-one as not everyone who takes a permit to carry class has experience with shooting.
I think the class was very helpful for me, It showed me where the line in the sand is that I should not cross unless threatened with bodily harm. To always retreat when possible, To always look for options and to keep my level of awareness high.
We were very happy with the class today. We will absolutely recommend this instructor to all our friends. If you are the first one there, make a little noise, he can be a little jumpy. What Can I Do To Improve The Class?We felt it is just fine the way it is. Time moved along very quickly. It did not feel like we were there for any length of time at all.
Great Job Chris you kept me interested the whole 4 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris was very well versed in his knowledge of what was to be taught in his class. There was ample time for Q & A. He professed at not being good at giving lectures but he did very well. Anyone and everyone that is considering the right to carry a hand gun should take his class.
The class was excellent. You did a great job. Thanks
His class was well planned with all basic knowledge needed Chris was an outstanding instructor keep up the great work and i will be back in five years for another class. Everything was just the way it should be don’t change a thing i was not able to access the part to rate the instructor but i give you a 10 awesome job
Chris does an excellent job! It is truly amazing how he can have that much content and be able to cover the information in the time given.What Can I Do To Improve The Class? You do an excellent job, so i dont see that you would need to change anything.
The best part of class was learning about the different classes of awareness. It brought back military training. You should focus on that a little more. Thank you Chris.
I wouldn’t change a thing. You were very informative and did an awesome job covering everything I would have had questions about
I was very impressed with Chris’ knowledge of firearms and safety. I have already recommended this others. I was expecting a long and boring class and received a class that was interesting all the way through.
Chris thought you did good job. Only thing I would say is tell people the class runs longer. If we get done earlier that would be a bonus. Don’t want people thinking they will be done at 2 or so then not get out till 3.30. Lot to cover. very easy to run long. very complicated laws. You made it fun. Thanks.
I thought the class was long and going over things for the beginners.
This was the 3rd class I have taken in order to renewal my permit to carry. The previous two classes had exam’s at the end. Perhaps that is not required any more? Not saying we need to be tested. I am fine with how well your class went throughout the day. Well organized.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Well organized class. I liked slide show presentation. Previous two classes just went through books. Good job, keep it up.
Chris made a novice gun person like myself feel comfortable not knowing a lot about guns. Also I think he can relate to all persons taking his class from beginners to advanced owners. I like the relaxed feel the class had along with the flow of it. Having said that, I’d say keep it going!
I was very satisfied with the class. It was informative and presented well. I will be recommending the class to friends.
Subject matters were covered in detail. Handgun safety (very important) was stressed. Left the class feeling informed in use of hand guns, laws and responsibilities. I found tips given to conceal carry as applied to the real world were valuable. After the class I really felt the saying “Be careful what you ask for” concerning a conceal carry permit certainly applied. Chris was very helpful in explaining what to expect in carrying, using and general public attitude towards those that carry handguns. I have re-read my class notes and class material received. I’m presently waiting for results of my conceal carry application submission. To Chris and The Precision Firearm’s group thanks for a job well done!
The class was very very informative, even though it took all morning the time flew by and Chris kept our attention and was very interactive with the class. I really appreciated on the range where he took the extra time to notice the way I used to hold my gun and showed me a much easier and more comfortable grip.
Very informational for the firearm owner. I liked the information on how to protect yourself and/or family and how to place yourself in situations that would not necessarily mean for you to fire your weapon.
Chris did an excellent job, very thorough and knowledgeable. Thanks so much
Good pace.. a lot of information regarding personal safety as well as gun handling and your rights under Mn and federal law. I feel confident now in the knowledge that I can protect myself and my family if I would need to in any situation.
The class was run very well. Overall, I thought it was interesting and I learned a lot of important information.
I learned a lot of valuable info. Thanks
Awesome class, great instructor!
Was an interesting class. Like the personal examples you were able to share. Also liked that you were able to put some of the minnesota laws into English.
Very good class. Instructor was very good speaker, knew the material well and explained it in a very understandable way. I appreciated having the plethora of holsters and guns to look at, otherwise most peoples first experience is at the gun store.
I enjoyed your class and I will let people know who you are.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? I can not think of anything, very satisfied!
Good as it was I can’t improve it I learned and had fun ill always take care in the principals I learned
It was fun and I learned a few things I didn’t know. Glad that you had a sense of humor throughout the class.
Really enjoyed the class, Chris was very personable.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? I have no suggestions to improve the class as I thought it was great.
Great class!! Even as a FFL holder I learned alot! I highly recomend this class for people of all skill ranges.
Great class! I loved how you added some humor and stories about people in certain situations. I also LOVED that you were able to keep the class moving and not get off on a ton of tangents. Very knowledgeable in this area.
Thanks Chris for the informative class.
Class was great. Better than I expected
I thought the class went very well. A review of techniques for shooting has already made a difference in my shooting.
The class was great. I was a first time shooter, and have never even handled a gun before. I felt very safe shooting, and I feel very comfortable in my knowledge not only about guns and gun laws, but also about different types of ammunition, holsters, etc.
Great class lead by a very knowledgeable instructor. Can not wait to take other classes to broaden my skills with firearms.
You are an excellent speaker.
Very informative and thorough. I would recommend this class to anyone
I have already recommended some friends and family to take the class. I liked the class and it really broadened my mind. Overall it went by quick and I really enjoyed it.
Chris, Did a wonderful job. He gave a lot of information and was detailed as well which made learning it and retaining it easier. I was so nervous to do my shooting at the range I waited to go last and the way Chris took his time and made me feel comfortable was amazing. He taught me things I was unaware of and spent extra time making sure I understood it as well. I have already recommend him to many. Thanks Chris for a wonderful experience.
The class was very informative of the laws governing legality of a Permit to Carry. The overall class was deeply thought out and clearly planned to help an average guy like me understand those laws involving A Permit to Carry. Thanks for the opportunity
There was just enough humor to keep it from being boring but not so much that it got off track. It made me think about things that I would not have given much thought to. I would definitely recommend this class.
Presented the class well, very informative.
Great class, instructor was very knowledgeable, knew what he was talking about.
Great class, kept it moving along and provided real world information
Great class. Great instructor.
All aspects of getting a permit were covered. Legal ramifications of carrying w were well covered
Instructor made very dry classroom material fun and kept everyone’s attention by giving real life scenarios. Covered mostly extremely pertinent material, excellent job Chris, I’ll be back in five years for my renewal and thanks for the 20 bucks at the range, that was outstanding
Great class with good info. I think you need to continue just like you are now.you present all info on what we need to know.much better than the class I took from someone else 5 yrs ago.
Very educational and complete
Great class. I really like how you offer use of your own guns and ammo to students at no charge. Even though I brought my own a lot of students did not. I appreciate the military discount and that was why I chose your class. I enjoyed class and will see you again when I need to renew. What Can I Do To Improve The Class?Nothing I think it was spot on. Taught to a good level and explained everything well.
Great class. Learned alot
Hey Chris I think you did a great job of presenting the C & C Material You were patient & injected some humor in to the class
I was impressed with the amount of time spent covering what a permit holder’s responsibility is if they decide to carry. Chris is a knowledgeable instructor and did a good job keeping the class interesting.
Put cushions on the seats! Seriously, u did good.
We have already recommended your class to others. Do you have any more classes scheduled in the Brainerd Lakes area? People have asked us for class schedule information.
Good paced instruction. Practical information presented in an easy to learn format. I should have done this years ago. Highly recommend Chris.
Very interesting and informative. I highly recommend this class. You did a great job and you shouldn’t tinker with what you are doing too much. Thank you for improving my knowledge of guns and the laws.
This was a great class into the details on the permit to carry and how to handle situations where you may need to use a firearm. I’m glad the class was taught in a way that emphasizes the use of the firearm as a last resort.
I enjoyed this class and learned a lot from Chris. He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of personal stories to share with the class. Highly recommended!
I felt the class was good. I felt you were quite knowledgeable and I learned a lot. I look forward to continually learning more about firearms and conceal and carry. I felt that you did a great job of teaching the class and informing us.
This is a very good class to take even if you are not looking to conceal and carry. Very good information here. I learned things that I did not know when shooting the gun, ie- how not to hold your gun when shooting. Chris was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had.
Two thumbs up for this class! Chris is on his game and I would highly recommend this class to everyone.
The class was great. Very knowledgeable instructor. I love the fact that all of the information needed to get the Florida permit was included.
Did great even though it was an all new power point to teach to the class. You did a great job. Thanks for everything.
Very good class! Thank you!
Chris is an excellent instructor; his presentation skills are professional and first class. He really knows the material. Keep up the great work!!!
This was a great online class and it was great at the range. Thank you so much for your time!!
Chris, Thank You for all the knowledge you bestowed on us. I learned a lot about how to carry a gun and how “Not” to carry a gun. Again, Thank You for the class and if I am still in Minnesota in 5 years, I’ll see you again. One suggestion that you might consider that would present you to the class as more of an authority figure would be to wear something that represents your expertise as an arms authority. This is just my feeling, I know that people who carry wear just about anything, but I guess I expected to see someone with some sort of sporting clothing. Mind you, I would have never guessed that you carry, which is what you want, but then I am new to this and being x-military, I guess I am use to authority coming in a uniform. Thanks again
REFINE THE PROGRAM. MAKE IT SHORTER. TAKE OUT SOME OF THE INFORMATION THAT ISN’T REAL NECESSARY.
I thought the class was very good and very informative.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? You should go over the other classes you might offer. My girl friend wants to take a beginners course and it would be nice to know what other classes you offer. Other then that, it was a very good class!!
Very Good Class and was very interesting
Did a good job with the class and explaining are right to carry
Thanks, Great Class!!!
I would have liked to have had copies of some of the information on the screen it was very interesting. Or maybe knowledge of links that I could look those up.great class I enjoyed it.
Good materials good presentation. Personally I disagree with the bias shown against BLACKHAWK! Serpa Holsters as being any
more dangerous than another holster type/brand. Three years ago I spent 4 days out in Norfolk, VA as a guest of BLACKHAWK! and spent many hours on the shooting range using those holsters taught by world renowned shooter Todd Jarrett. What some might suggest is a design flaw I say is more of an issue of lack of proper training. Any holster can be used improperly and the shooter develop bad/dangerous habits. I was not going to debate this issue in class, but in the future I would like to hear you state it differently like saying some shooters have experienced problems with this holster. Yet, with proper training and experience those problems can be overcome easily by the user. Rather than a flat out disapproval of product
Good class… Thanks for the. $20.
I really enjoyed the class.
The class was very lengthly. I think stick to the basics on gun safety and strictly on guns rather than going over pepper spray, etc. Good class!
Awesome class – Chris covered the topics thoroughly and injected enough humor to keep us all on track. You know the instructor is good in my opinion when you can go the entire day and hear no “chatter” during the presentations. Well worth the time and investment in my opinion. Hopefully Chris’ new baby came
I attended yesterday and I give you, Chris, nothing but cudoo’s for a job well done. I would recommend your class to anybody and, in fact, have already done so with several people. You did a great job! Keep up the good work.
Great class. Thank you!
Chris did a great job with the class. I was re-certifying my permit and he covered everything and more than my first instructor. Definitely money well spent
This other person that I went to class with has been to this type of class before and said it was the best one that he’s been to.
Loved the class you did great, will definitely recommend you. Made it fun
I really enjoyed the class… I was never bored. Maybe a little tired because of the time springing forward. I learned a lot of stuff. The scenarios and examples were really helpful. Granted when your in the situation you don’t have much time to think how to react in threatening and non threatening circumstances. It’s nice to have some insight. Hopefully I’ll never have to use it, but I’m a lot more confident now than I was before the class. Very glad we signed up with you and we didn’t get stuck with a boring, no humor, monotone speaker.
I learned a lot and learned I have much more to learn! Thank you, I’m glad I was there and I have already recommended it to others!
This class was very well done. Instructor Chris Marquette was very knowledgeable and took questions during the presentation. All material covered was quite valuable, even if review for some, and was easy to understand everyday common sense. Some hands-on of a variety of handguns and holsters was also covered and was nice to have available to see. I had my 15 yr old son with me during this class to observe and he also was quite happy to be there with me. Thank you for providing an excellent class!
Took this class to renew. My first class I took 5 years ago was much longer, and we covered far less. We basically read through a handbook, and it was boring. The power point was very much appreciated, as were the hypothetical situations and discussions. Very informative. Would recommend this class and you as an instructor again.
Thank you great class
He was extremely knowledgeable! Kept my full attention the while time! Great job!
Covered a good amount on laws. Knows a lot about subject.
I liked being instructed on proper handling/carrying of a handgun. Carrying a handgun wouldn’t make sense if safety of others and myself were in jeopardy. I liked being informed on the risks of choosing to use a firearm as deadly force. I liked stories and videos of instructors having accidental discharge, people trained well can still make careless mistakes. I feel we’ll informed.
Chris, you did an excellent job of presentation on gun safety, knowledge of the guns and a number of things to be aware of. Not only how and especially when to use a weapon but more importantly how to stay out of bad situations. To be aware of the surroundings is an important feature in everyday life that is taken for granted on most days. I did mention to you that you did put a little fear in me about using my weapon, but I really understand now that when all else fails in an assault and the deadly force has to be used what steps to take next. It was a very informative class way beyond the use of a gun. Well done and thank you!!
It wasn’t boring, it was fast paced. It kept your attention. You were very knowledgeable. When you are showing the laser and aiming, aim it towards the wall with the projector so everyone would be able to see it.
This is only my second class, so only one comparison. However, there was enough difference that I would not only NEVER go back to the other guy, I would seek out your class specifically. I learned so much more from you. And though you said you’re not a public speaker, you sure seemed to be. You talked a LONG time, and yet held everyone’s attention. You weren’t boring, you were extremely knowledgeable, and your voice deflection made it extremely easy to listen to. Thank you!
I will be recommending you!
I enjoyed the class, very informative, Chris is a very thorough instructor and easy to listen to. I would recommend this class and Chris to anyone wanting to take a conceal/carry class.
Very good class! Instructor is very knowledgeable of conceal and carry training and laws.
I felt your class moved at just the right pace. Fast enough to hold interest, but not too fast as to overwhelm the first time student with too much unnecessary information. The Focus of the class seemed to be on the legal responsibilities and ramifications of carrying a firearm, as it should be. I have read all the information you sent with us. It has all caused me to think hard and deep about carrying. I’m the guy in the front row in the Winona class that you had shoot the laser at the screen. It took me awhile because the targets in the foreground, in my mind were concrete pillars or something. In my mind I was looking in the background for a bad guy with a gun. Possibly a few screens, some with a real threat and some with an innocent bystander would be good. I think this would help the class understand the importance of knowing why you are drawing your weapon. just a thought. Thanks for the class, it has caused me to think deeper and to look into additional training.
Chris is a very knowledgeable instructor and super passionate about the topic. He is very humble and has some great real life examples. He has some great examples of weapons, holsters, tasers, pepper spray, etc. Also, he makes the class as interactive as possible. His sense of humor and his ability to relate to his audience makes for a very enjoyable time even during the dry stuff such as the legal talks.
I enjoyed Chris’s class very much. He was very relatable and descriptive.
Great class and awesome speaker! You did an amazing job keeping attention with your mixture of humor and facts.
Little long But safety first and you did a very good job
Class was great!! I learned a lot of new information!
Considering this is my first class, I think it was very well put together and I would definitely recommend it to others.
Much better than I expected . I have listen in on the other instructors that have classes at the club and you are hands down better !
Was very through with information.
What a great instructor
Fantastic experience – educational and very entertaining!! Hope you topped the sheriffs department in toy donations 🙂
My first class. He made it very entertaining.
Very informative. I found the tips on home safety particularly helpful
Great class. Educational and entertaining at the same time, this class had it all.
Great class, with a knowledgeable fun instructor. I appreciate the time and effort you put into the class. 10/10!
All sections were covered exceptionally well. Easy to understand language and practical situations to learn from and give consideration too.
I thought the personal security training was very useful. Would be a good class even for people who don’t intend to carry.
Very good class!!
This was a great class! Very good content and it was entertaining the entire time. Information was given in a way that kept it very easy to remember.
This was a great class, very informative! I took a class 8 years ago and didn’t learn half of the info that was presented in this class! I think the toys for tots class is a fantastic way to get people involved in helping people in our community.
Very satisfied with his class explained everything perfectly!
This class was very informative. I walked away feeling confident and educated on the tools needed to be a successful gun owner. Chris was very detailed, answered the class questions and was very patient with those who were handling a gun for the first time. Thank you Chris for this awesome class! I look forward to receiving private lessons, along with some of my friends in the future!
Chris rocks a safe a knowledgeable class that’s packed with good safety tips and education. Will continue to come back to his classes.
I can’t think of a way to make the class any better! It was interesting and fun. This was my 3rd class, first time with Precision Plus and the best one I ever attended
Best part of the class wasn’t just the jokes and puns but he went through a lot of theoretical knowledge witch answer questions I didn’t even think about I say he did a very good job
Very Professional and to the point. Good stuff.
Thought it was great class again but I picked the wrong chair to sit on. My fault, not yours.
It was a great class that not only taught you about conceal to carry but also about home defense. Amazing class!
I really appreciated the time spent on the legal ramifications surrounding the use of lethal force and the attorney referral if you are ever in that situation. Awesome class and recommend it to anyone. Thank you Chris and keep up the great work.
Maybe explain in the description the classroom will be in one location and then we will drive to the range to shoot. That way we would have a better understanding of how the day is going to go.
We enjoyed it and were thankful for you sharing your knowledge. We will recommend this class to others!
Great class. Lots of information but easy to comprehend. Really liked the idea of a safe plan and safe room.
Good information and the videos where good to see the situation unfold
I feel I learned more this time than I did my First Class 5 years ago
Good information, didn’t drag, fast pace was good.
The class was great and Chris sure impressed with his knowledge and charisma! Not only was Chris well equipped to teach this class, he also had a wide array of products to look at and feel so that the class was able to see some of this stuff up close! Thanks so much for a great class Chris! Will continue to recommend you!
Fast paced….knowledgeable and pertinent information. I learned much that most people thought they knew but were wrong. 10/10 rating,
I really enjoyed the class, learned a lot of things I wasn’t aware of.
Great job Chris!!!
Good information very knowledgeable about handguns. reminded all of the importance of safety when handling any type of gun
I was very impressed. You got my attention from the beginning and kept it all the way to the end.
I was referred to you by Chris from Civil Response Firearms Training. He asked that I let him know how it went and I plan to give him a positive response. I enjoyed the class. I think it is an excellent class to take whether you actually plan to carry or not. I have been recommending it to others. You really did a great job.
enjoyed it very much, you kept it very interesting and I really enjoyed your humor Learned a lot today.
The class was interesting and the information was covered in a timely fashion. I learned a lot and will be enrolling my girlfriend once she gets more comfortable with shooting. Great experience!
We cover a lot of information in a short period of time. Chris kept the class interesting
Great class, very informative. I will definitely be referring others to get their permit and take advantage of this class! What Can I Do To Improve The Class? It was honestly great! The content was covered well and presented in an easy to understand and retain manner.
A lot of very good information,Excellent gun safety and laws with deadly force is involved.Thanks for a great day and all the good knowlege.
thanks for being pro-veteran and giving your time and effort to show it. The information on your online class was great and very informative, thanks again Chris.
Chris, you are an excellent instructor! Very knowledgeable!! I have been encouraging others to take your class. Thank you for all the information that you gave us! I liked the idea that you informed us all that we could contact you if we had any questions
Chris was very informative and I learned so much. The class went by so fast because I was so interested
I enjoyed the classroom, I don’t shoot a hand gun often, but now I will go and purchase one to fit me and maybe I will enjoy it more. Do you remember the one I used, I did like the feel of that one.? I thought the material including the hand outs will be very useful as I will look back on them. I thought you did a good job. You kept it interesting by breaking it down to sections and then a break. I learned a lot about handling a gun that I didn’t know, Safety to me is very important. Good job
You do a great job teaching the class. I will recommend it to everyone. You are very knowledgeable and I appreciate that.
I enjoyed the class. When you hear the class is 8 hours long, you think it’s going to be long and boring… This class was fast paced and held my interest the whole time. Thank you! You did a great job with this class.
Great class, very thorough, I plan to come back for subsequent classes. I am impressed at your level of knowledge and expertise.
I absolutely would recommend taking your class with Chris. He is a great instructor and does a good job keeping it interesting with real life stories to learn from. I would recommend Chris as an instructor, even if you have never handled a gun before.
Chris, you ran a great class. The pleasant and friendly demeanor makes students comfortable asking questions, especially about firearms they aren’t familiar with (I noticed more than a few people who weren’t embarrassed to admit they didn’t know how to operate certain types of guns, including myself). The selection of guns brought for display / lending during range time was excellent;everyone at the class had the opportunity to handle basically any type of semi-auto pistol or wheel gun, giving people a chance to consider what type of action and size of caliber and size of frame they’re comfortable with. The holster selection was very nice, as well. The legal aspects of owning and carrying a weapon were comprehensively covered, and extra attention was given to discussing the difference between “reasonable force” and “deadly force” and making it clear what situations allow for the use of deadly force. Also covered was reciprocity and how to store and transport (and when and where it’s legal to use) firearms in states that do not have permit reciprocity. The discussion of laws and legal responsibility was clear and comprehensive. Additionally, the discussion and demonstration of safe handling was great and covered the most common types of malfunctions and how to address them in the field. I feel confident that you did you job well and as long as I exercise proper judgement, I feel I have the knowledge I need to safely and responsibly carry.
I think everyone should pay before class starts. Would save time later. I think you did awesome job of instructions.
The class room and items for example were excellent. I feel that is very important for first time and new carry card holders.
Loved the class, only thing I didn’t like was the size I guess? And the very loud people on the other side of the club, hard to hear what you were saying. And hard to see in the back. But very good information, I was recommended to your class by my husband that also had you for an instructor, and will continue to refer people your way!!
My wife and I thought the class was very informative and interesting. The videos were appropriate for the material you presented in class. The drinks and the firearms and ear plugs you provided was a very nice thought. It was appreciated as people, like us, do not have a firearm yet. The class was not too long, the lengths of the breaks were fine. We truly enjoyed the class.
WE LEFT KNOWING MORE ABOUT THE LAW, GUN SAFETY, AND WHAT A PERSON’S RIGHTS ARE.
Really enjoyed the class. I wish there weren’t so many people there but the class was full when I registered and he managed to get me in so I have no room to complain. Most of the people were polite and shut up when he started talking. Wish we could have shot more but I understand the need to get everyone through the shooting portion. All in all an enjoyable and fact filled class.
I thought you did a very nice job. In particular I was happy you spent so much time on helping us learn to be safe, aware of our environment and to avoid situations that seem risky. I was glad you emphasized the importance of knowing what is behind the target and that pulling the trigger should be a last resort. You did a good job with the reasonable person test and explaining who would be considered a reasonable person. Of course I paid particular attention to your explanation of how and why a prosecutor reviews a shooting incident and you were spot on. (Of course, since I am the prosecutor, I would use slightly different words, but you were overall right on.)
Great class Chris. I liked that you added a lot about home and personal protection along with all the firearms information. It was a very well rounded class. The real life scenarios were very valuable.
I really got a lot of good solid information out of the class about avoiding conflicts
Your knowledge and presentation of the instruction was broad but precise for the subject matter. Your an excellent instructor and educator. Glad to had the experience with you.
I have been a hunter and been around guns for over 43 years. Yes I started hunting at 13 years of age, and I’m 56. I learned a lot about a gun carriers responsibility. On when you might pull back an not get involved and when you can legally get involved. And that the time to think about different situations is before they happen so you can respond quicker when it happens. They brought up many different situations in class and got you thinking about how these could come up in your live. Rick Flicker
Very professional and brought his personal stories into the class; which, helped enforce the points he was making.
I though the class was well thought out, informative and well presented by a common person speaking to common people.
This was a great class. The instructor was very knowledgeable and well organized. Any questions I had were answered. I would recommend this class to anyone!
Gave good practical shooting tips and many great real life helpful scenarios for safety. What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Wouldn’t change anything, did a great job.
Great class, recommend it to anyone!
I would recommend this class to anyone who has a desire to do any hunting or target practice shooting just for the safety factors that were covered. The information for anyone intending to get a permit to carry was very good. It shows the seriousness of the whole concept.
The class was very informative. Plan on watching for other classes by this same instructor so I can improve more on safety and accuracy. Thank you for putting on this class. I really appreciated it.
class was great
Well done class
I’ve been a Firearms Safety Inst. for 36 years. (Minnesota) You’re more than welcome to join our team. I cannot think of one thing to try to tell you to improve on. GREAT JOB!
Kept the class informative, interesting yet fun with a little bit of humor thrown in. I would recommend this class to anyone interested in gun training.
I thought Chris did a very good job at presenting the information. This is the 3rd or 4th time I have renewed my permit and other than the cold weather on the range, this was by far the best class that I have been apart of. I would recommend the class to anyone and the next time I am forced to renew again I’ll look Chris up!!!
I wasn’t sure how to rank you by number so to clarify, you are great at this! Every time i thought of a question, you where there with the answer before i had the chance to ask. You covered everything. Great humor too. I was going on little sleep the night before but you kept it lively. Your extra time spent with those that needed help at the range was most appreciated! thanks for your commitment!.
Very friendly instructor with lots of knowledge. Would defiantly recommend to anybody. Thanks Chris
Awesome class!! Had a good time learning so much i didn’t know. Knowledge is power in today’s world and i feel very good after attending your class.
It have already recommended this class to other family members. I was so at ease with this instructor I felt I was better able to absorb and learn what he was teaching. I am so grateful there are pros like Chris. I am looking forward to attending other classes he may offer….thank you Chris. The fact that this class was for women only took away the pressure of having to compete with men.
Great class, very knowledgeable.
Awesome class!! Had a good time learning so much i didn’t know. Knowledge is power in todays world and i feel very good after attending your class.
My wife and I will definitely tell others about your class, and we both agreed, it was way better than the Cabelas class. You supplied more information about the weapons and ammo. The real case scenerios were more interesting also.
The class was very informative on MN laws and how to avoid situations where a gun maybe necessary. It’s about preparing for the worst in defence of your family or self. I recommend this instructor and course to anyone who wants this education.
I thought everything was great. Felt very comfortable in class n at range. Will definitely come back to u for renewal
Chris covered the material in an easy to understand and supportive way as some women can be intimidated. Very knowledgeable in the field. I found it very helpful to have the display of guns and opportunity to ask questions as well as to handle them. Chris did a great job!!
Great class thanks again
WENT VERY SMOOTH
Great class! Josh and I talked all weekend about what we learned and cant wait to hit the range. It was a bonding time for us and those dont come often enough these days. I would have liked to stay longer and have Josh shoot more but a wife and 4 other kids at home were beckoning. Setting was great, Info was top notch and having the wide range of guns and holsters in class was helpful. I feel like I learned more than I expected. It was great to have an instructor that believes and practices what they are teaching. Good Job!
Learned alot from this class, I’m a guy who will ask alot of questions, maybe to the point of being a pest. Chris answered all questions,was polite and respecful to everyone.
This was not my first Permit to Carry class but it was the best by far and the most reasonable in cost.
You gave a lot of beneficial examples and situations
I’ve already recommended your class to 3 of my girlfriend’s. I think you will be seeing them soon. You were great and understanding. I actually felt comfortable in class and on the range.
About as good as it gets for this type of class.
This is a great class that I would recommend to anyone. Chris really puts on a class at a professional level. He has all the class material available, different firearms, and covers everything you need to know. There is no doubt in my mind if you take his classes you will leave satisfied. Professional all the way from start to finish.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Nothing. You really put on a great class. You are very friendly, very helpful, and made me feel comfortable in class and on the range. Thank you
Loved the vast number of examples and wide variety of weapons. Also enjoyed the advise and beverages.
I liked the whole outlook of being aware and being prepared for situations. It didn’t seem like a “preppers” outlook at all, much more sensible than that. It was good, for me, to see the importance of family and how you involve them in the understanding of how things work. Knowledge is king. You seemed very knowledgeable of the topics you spoke about, detailed. I would definitely suggest this course to others.
This is my second class (renewal) I took the previous one at cabelas..you class was much more thorough. Just gained a vast amount of more knowledge.
I was very impress in the the class you a great job you answered all questions very well and the way you answered them you did not make the person feel stupid for the question that was presented good job and keep up the great job and great job in keeping the attention of the class
The class was great! I wouldn’t change a thing.
I thought the instructor was very helpful and he helped me to understand how to do everything properly What Can I Do To Improve The Class? I’d say nothing.
very informative class, like that it was straight to the point yet you kept it light with a couple of humorous comments, keep on keeping on thanks again
Thank you for a great class. The instructor Chris had a great knowledge base and was great with his sense of humor and breaking the monotony of the class up with his jokes and demonstrations. I very much enjoyed the range portion having never been to a official one before. His compliments after my shooting were very welcomed. Again thank you
Liked the variety of holsters and other options for conceal carry available to see. Impressed with the video references and case scenarios
This class was very informative. It was amazing and I would definitely recommend it to others
Great class. Lots of fun
Great class. Thank you Chris. I have already recommended class to others. Very good class and very professional , time flew by. I can not add anything to other comments, they have already been said.
Very well presented
Chris was a great instructor with an obscene amount of knowledge. I was very happy with this class, and will definitely recommend it to anyone.
Great instructor. Class is kept on track but fun and light. No droning on about why you should/shouldn’t do this or that. He gives you all the information and opens up for discussion about why each situation is different. Genuinely fun and educational class. My wife will be signing up for one shortly.
Chris did a great job explaining the information very thoroughly. He took his time and did not rush the class. He went above and beyond as an instructor. I sent him a message on the Sunday before my class asking if he had a certain gun that I was considering for my carry gun. He did not have the gun, but did say that he would try to pick one up before class. I received a message on that Thursday that he did get the gun, and I would be able to try it out that day. Thank you!
Very great class learned alot thank you again see u again in 5 years
Great class for women. My boyfriend is interested in taking the class also, so I have recommended he sign up for one of your sessions. Thank you!
Experienced instructor. Organized, informative and entertaining. Well equipped for presentation & examples
I thought you did a great job of keeping the class interesting and engaging. Good presentation skills.
This class was the most affordable I’ve been able to find, not only that but with you providing us with a eye protection, ear protection, firearm and ammunition at no extra cost was a huge bonus and made it a lot easier to come to the class. I absolutely feel I got my moneys worth and then some! I love that not only do you talk about us being safe with guns but incorporated so much with what you and your wife do to prepare your children for an emergency situation. It was nice getting knowledge on how to introduce guns to our children as well. Overall excellent class with great instruction! Thank you for the experience!
Great class and was willing to deal with our family. Hopefully will have same instructor in 5 years when we have to renew the class
Great Class. Very knowledgeable instructor. Very laid back and easy going class. Very much info to try to absorb in a short amount of time.
I enjoyed the class and actually received information that I have been searching for like the past 2 months. im a martial arts instructor and teach a variety of self defense courses and was happy to see that the “hands and feet” so to speak and open carry or well permit to carry have a lot of similarities. self defense is self defense, from knives to our well trained bodies to firearms I promote all of thee above. im very happy to add a firearm to my defense as I encourage other black belts or any martial artist to do the same.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? you did well, as I teach myself I learn so much from others and keep looking for knowledge, just keep doing what your doing you kept it real and added the humor when needed. nothing over board just some real serious facts. I enjoyed the class very much as I could see other students take in some serious points as I did. so in retrospect just pick up as all good instructors do and just add to your next class. thank you.
The class was excellent. The first section of being aware and taking steps to avoid dangerous situations would be helpful to anyone, not just gun carrying individuals. You kept it interesting, had adequate breaks, and added to the presentation slides instead of reading them to us. Good job!
Great job, I am already more aware of my surroundings. Thanks for letting me look at several guns. I will start going to a shooting range to improve my skills and knowledge.
I thought the class was very knowledgeable learned a lot
I loved the scenarios that made me think about several different options and variables to a dangerous encounter. I feel like there could have been a little more instruction on the parts of a gun, how to load it and disarm it. It may have been a better use of time to only have a couple breaks, although it is a lotfof information. I felt very safe in the class. I definitely feel like I learned a lot of useful information. Excellent class, I’ve already referred several people!
Great experience. Instructor deserves a tall cold one!
Chris was very well versed on all the areas covered in the class from safety in the home to laws & personal rights; Good job Chris I enjoyed the day, time well spent!
Funny and entertaining with a good grasp on knowledge. Able to answer questions adequately and efficiently
You were very informational and very knowledgeable on most of the topics that you talked about. You gave good advise and I appreciate that. Saying the same things over and over was a lil repetitive but in the same sense it is a good way to make people understand the importance of the training and how to do so legally and most of all SAFLY. I Was very impressed by the way the class ended up. GREAT JOB two thumbs up !!
I enjoyed the class. I found it to be educational on laws and scenarios that one may encounter. I feel like I learned quite a bit of information.
Felt very comfortable with the class. Thank you I am so glad that you covered the law on what constitutes a good shoot vs one that is not good. Sure opened my eyes. Hopefully the only time we will need to shoot our weapons is when we are on the range but it is a good feeling knowing that we have had proper training to get us through that. Thanks again
This was a very thorough class and a lot of information was covered and I learned a lot of new things. Chris keeps the class informative and fun at the same time while taking a serious subject and teaching you
Great job learned a lot of information.Chris did an excellent and thorough job explaining every topic.
Thanks Chris I thought your class was great and have already recommended it to 2 people the next time you are in Winona. Very informative.
You kept the class fun yet informative. I like how it did not feel like you were reading it right out of a book. The visual aids were very good and showed a lot of the differences that are out there. I feel I could send someone with little to almost no experience to the class and they will come out knowing a lot more.
Very good class, too bad it is not required as a class before graduating from school. Nice truck by the way too.
Great class. Chris knows his stuff. Took the time to answer everyone’s questions and make sure we understood the answers. Provided multiple self defense scenarios and different outcomes based on our decisions. The information provided was very helpful, and he did a great job keeping everyone engaged so the class didn’t drag on. I would absolutely recommend this class to others.
Great class: ) We had a lot of fun but also learned a lot!!!! Chris you are a great instructor, super funny, nice and helpful! Not once did I feel dumb for not knowing anything about a gun:) Made our first time shooting feel so natural, I was super nervous because the thought of guns does scare me but with the knowledge I gained today I feel a lot more confident Thanks so much! Can’t wait to shoot at the range in Austin! My dad will be proud haha.
Great class have recommended it to several friends
Awesome class… very informative and fun
Excellent class. Would be very valuable even for people who do not intend to carry a weapon. The class was about far more than just carrying a weapon — it was about personal safety and protecting my family. Especially appreciated the condition colors. I was introduced to that concept in regards to flying in 1986. The flight instructor referenced that he had learned about it from carrying a firearm. It was an excellent reminder. Thank you. Appreciated the way you incorporated current news when we discussed situational awareness.
Chris, Thank you for your knowledge and personal opinions on matters regarding carrying openly and concealed. I felt I left with more valuable info. Thanks again
Awesome class. Great instructor. Had fun. Learned a lot and all of our questions were answered. Thanks!
The first class I took; the instructor gave us more of the “don’t pull your gun unless you are going to shoot and shoot to kill” mentality. I think there were probably others in the class that had the same experience, by some of the comments made. My carry views are much more inline with your class.
We enjoyed your touches of humor and the real life situations you brought up. The breaks were helpful too. We did not feel you rushed through the information and explained things very well.
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? I guess we all have room for improvement but I have nothing to add to improve your class in my opinion. Thank you for what you do to help us be safe.
Did a good job explaining and to the point on what we need to know. Amswered questions when asked and didn’t make us feel stupid.
Really enjoyed the class! Very fun and upbeat. The day went really quick. Thank you for the great instruction and so glad to receive all we did through your education and experience!
The class was very informative,upbeat, and enjoyable. Hope everyone passed. Don’t know what the instructor rating system was suppose to be,but couldn’t get the number to change,but our feeling is he was VERY good!!
It was great! I really learned a lot
I thought it was going to be boring and dry. It was neither. Your humor helps a lot and made it enjoyable
It was an enjoyable learning session. Your input on gun experience was very helpful. Thank you for sharing.
It would be great if you could have an assistant at the gun range to help check people off. It would just make that process smoother. Otherwise, I think the class was good.
Great class, very efficient. Would recommend it to anyone interested in obtaining a PTC
Chris, being straight forward and honest you did a great job teaching this course! From basic gun safety to understanding the laws in general, it was covered perfectly and didn’t lose us at any point. I think your passion for guns and gun safety shows in your teachings in a way that talks with your classes not at them or down to them, and that is a great thing. I really learned a lot and give the class high regards and will further recommend it to others! I’m really satisfied with the class and happy I attended! Thanks!
I enjoyed the class taught by Chris. He was quite knowledgable but yet not arrogant. I have taught Safety classes for over 25 years and would recommend Chris’s teaching to all. He was thoughtful, energetic, and even humorous at times. Great class and felt like none of my time was wasted.
Hello Chris – great class I really enjoyed it. I appreciated your straightforward and relaxed attitude, I think it made for a great environment. Also, thanks for the military discount as well!
Much better than the first class I took. This was a renewal for me but would highly recommend Chris to others
I learned some new things that I had no idea about and every person should no in Minnesota and I’m going to talk my wife into going. Chris you did a good job. Thank you.
I thought the class was very informational. I felt like I left the class more knowledgable not just as a future firearm carrier, but citizen as well. I have heard of other classes where students are either pressured to use their weapons or the opposite and terrified to use it- not the case here! I felt Chris did a great job of making you feel comfortable in what situations to use your weapon while instilling the magnitude of not only firing your weapon but carrying it.
I really enjoyed your class. Your personal touches definitly kept it interesting. Thanks for all the info it will definitly be use full.
The topics were thoroughly covered.
Chris, you prefaced your class with a disclaimer that you aren’t a good speaker and that we may need to “help you through it.” Nothing could’ve been further from the truth. You blew all of our minds with your wealth of knowledge and competent approach to the class. My only regret is that I didn’t bring my wife with. I will send her to a future class of yours. We received so many practical ideas for not only shooting, but other areas of self defense and attack mitigation. All of society would be better off if taught the principles we learned from you last Saturday. You held everybody’s attention the entire morning and afternoon. You are highly praised and please write if you need any further recommendations. I will only recommend you for further classes!
I’m very glad I came to the class.. I thought it was goong to be boring. But you made it interesting. Definatley worth my saturday
I liked the class, would be awesome if you taught a class for kids. I don’t know if there is one or not. You were saying you teach your kids so they know dangers and what not.
The information provided was very thorough and explained well. I have already begun recommending the class to others.
Chris is not only knowledgeable and a good speaker but he also has a good sense of humor. He is a very laid back guy and made the time pass rapidly. I learned a lot and went home with much to think about. It’s not Chris’ fault that we hit the range in a snow storm. It wasn’t that bad but I was second to shoot with Chris’ buddy so I got out pretty fast. I highly recommend Chris.
Chris, I liked that you covered the laws, after all that is what we need to know if we do need to protect ourselves with a firearm. You did a great job. Thank you. See you in about 5 years.
It was a great class, very informative. I would definitely recommend the class to others. Chris Marguette provided a very comfortable learning environment. I now feel that I am knowledgeable and confident enough to carry.
I would like to see a little more in regards to gun handling. I know this could be a challenge with the number of people. More hands on situation handling. Maybe that’s a more advanced class in the future
Very good variety of helpful information. Instructor was well prepared and experienced. Thank you
Great class, learned a lot about what to look for in different situations to avoid having to use my firearm.
Great class for someone with little gun knowledge. For those with more experience some parts get a little boring but I understand this is a one size fits all class
Class answered all the questions that I had about personal defense
Chris made it very easy to understand the requirements and responsibilities of owning and carrying a handgun. His easy going manner, video aids and bits of humor kept the class interesting. It was nice to have a demonstration of handguns and accessories as well. Keep it up Chris! Thanxxxxx…
The class was really good and I came out of it with a lot more knowledge on firearms and the law about carrying a firearm.
Teaching style was very easy to understand. The transition into new topics and details was easy to retain and understand. The demonstrations and hands on opportunity was very important and helpful. I appreciate that contact information and encouragement to call or email with any qustions was offered. And you providing everything needed at the range which also gave the opportunity to find a comfort level was greatly appreciated. I have a hard time staying focused in classes and I can honestly say that I didn’t fell this class was 5 hours. It was just right. Thanks Chris!
I appreciated the honest and blunt approach taken to the laws. It didn’t turn into a game of “what ifs” and I left feeling secure in the knowledge I gained regarding the permit to carry.
Very good class Chris. I appreciate you coming so far to do the class. You definitely know you stuff and explained everything very well. Good shooting info. Reason I said no on the better shooting is because I have done a lot of training else where. But very good class thanks again!
I was looking forward to taking this class and I was not disappointed at all! The time went very fast
Very informative come time for renewal only instructor id go to. safe, fun , very blunt good teacher
Going in there I didn’t realize how much I would learn, I was very impressed. Chris did a great job, You kept the session very interesting very good at keeping a persons attention. I learned so much. You covered every aspect in all categories. I went in there with questions I had, but didn’t even need to ask , you had them all covered and more I didn’t even think about. Your a great speaker Chris also was clear and explained every thing perfect As I said I was very impressed with the class. I honestly can’t find anything that could be improved. Everything I needed to know and more was covered and explained excellent- Great Job
It was perfect
Thank you for a very informative class. It was great as you presented it.
I took the online class and enjoyed it very well. The information was well presented and easily understood. I would recommend this class to anybody looking to begin Conceal Carry or to anybody who wants to know their rights and limitations as a gun owner.
Great class! I learned more than I even anticipated that I would. I left the classroom feeling like I had the basic knowledge on not only gun safety and appropriate use to defend myself and my family, but also many other good tips on averting an incident or diffusing a potential situation! I cannot thank you enuf for all the knowledge I gained in your class. The videos and slides were effective and your real world scenarios and even how you apply in your own household were invaluable! Thank you for helping prepare me to defend myself and my family Chris!
He was very knowledgeable, had a clear answer for all my questions, and even had a lot of good info that didn’t directly pertain to firearms but clearly was relevant to many scenarios dealing with firearms..and he kept your attention for the entirety of the class which is important… would definitely recommend the class to anyone else interested in pursuing a permit to carry.
My husband got home from the class and had nothing but great things to say! From gun safety to home safety, he was really impressed!!!!! Great class Chris!
Chris was a great instructor and in a situation where you may feel Intimidated and in over your head, he made the class comfortable and very easy to understand.
I took the online class and found it fit in great with my schedule. The material was understandable and the videos in the presentation made it more enjoyable. The instructor is very flexible for range time and the location of the range is even easier to get to. Any questions I had were answered during range time. The instructor Chris was knowledgeable and friendly which made the whole process fun. I would recommend the online session to those who have some firearms knowledge, a busy schedule, and the want of a permit to carry. Well done Chris and thank you.
The information provided was very thorough and explained well. I have already begun recommending the class to others.
Great class. Recommend this class highly
Chris, I think you did very well as a presentor. I liked the fact that you did not read the slides word for word and told us more information. I thought your calm demeanor in class and at the range was very reassuring to those that might have not ever shot a gun. Awesome job. Thank you for the donuts and water.
I was pleased with the class setting. I learned a lot about the law n consequences of carrying. Great info on actions to take during and after. You have a great sense of humor n that makes for a fun class. Thanks
The class instruction I find was better than the former concealed carry class I took in 1979 in Florida. The only response I have is after going to the range and watching most of the classmates’ shooting ability and knowledge of gun function, that more should be said about the responsibility the people have who want concealed carry to understand they must learn their weapon and its funcitons extremely well. In the classroom instructions, I learned many new things . It was well done and very imformative. You did a very good job. I spent 23 years in the military and had many shipmates that I had to instruct how to shoot the handguns, and they just had no knowledge of the guns. If I had been notified ahead of time, I could have given a class on gun handling and function.
I felt the class covered everything I need to know about carrying a gun, laws I need to know, also helpful about what different kinds of guns and a lot about how to protect myself. Overall a great learning experience. Chris made you feel very comfortable and made the class very easy to attend. Also provided a lot of take home material that I can review anytime I need to. I would HIGHLY recommend this class for anyone to take. Especially with Chris as an instructor. I would rate it way above 10 if I could. When I need to renew my certificate , I will be doing it in one of Chris’ class’. Thanks, Chris
I don’t know if your scale of 1 to 10 is one is great or ten is. But it was a great class. Keep doing what your doing
I thought it was great with little films and breaks, next time I am doing it in the summer, LOL!!
Had a great time. Its was very informative
Overall a good class, more range time would be cool!
I Enjoyed Going To The Class I Learned alot
Thanks for a very informative class, I have already recommended it to my family and friends.
I thought the class was excellent for a new handgun carry applicant like myself. Likewise, class content should have been good review content for renewal carry permit holders. I am considering taking some of the other classes Chris offers.
Was a very great class. Covered everything greatly. Also like that you let us know where and where not to carry. And what to pay attention to. Donuts were great also. Thanks alot for the experience
Thought the class was very real with no bullshit as is what you sometimes get from these things . Very informative liked the extra magazines and pamphlets. Good job
His knowledge of guns and what to do was very impressive. Not stuffy very friendly to people. That’s what helps people learn.
I especially liked the way you stressed what will happen if you shoot someone Evan if you are in the right and the amount of responsibility one has when carrying. It not something to be taken lightly. I thought you had a good rapport with the class.
You did a great job in class and presented everything in respectable manner that was clear and easy to understand. Your new slides were a a nice improvement which made their points clear.
As I looked around the room I noticed you had everyone’s attention and people seemed comfortable asking questions when needed. Nice news stories to back up various areas of the presentation as well.
It’s always fun to watch the reactions when people get their certificates, such a great thing to see – thank you for making it possible for people to exercise their rights.
I wish you continued success and a full class every time! You’re in it for the right reasons and the community is better and safer because of it.
Thank you for being patient! It’s very intimidating for some girls as we tend not to “shoot” at all. It was very nice to feel comfortable shooting. I will recommend your class.
I really enjoyed the class. I learned so much I was unaware of. The instructor was very personable and I enjoyed the way he presented the material.
I Thought The Class Was Amazing. I’d Never Even Held A Gun Before And Took The Class Because It’s Just Me And My Daughters At Home Now And I Wanted To Get Rid Of My Fears. Chris Made It Very Comfortable. The Seven Hours Flew By Because He Made It So Interesting. I Need Lots Of Practice But Am Now Comfortable And No Longer Afraid. Plus Chris Spent Lots Of Extra Time With Me Helping Me Decide The Best Fit For Me.
The class was great, and i have recommended it to family. I’m very new to handguns, so the overview of the different types was very helpful.
Excellent class. Covered key information and was not boring
Best value I have found yet ! Free snacks and beverages in the morning,and even some free Pizza before heading to the range ! Seriously though ,Chris covers all the major topics related to carrying a weapon in the State of Mn,and in general as well. Since this was my 2nd time around taking a class,some of the information was redundant,but he did an excellent job of getting his message thru to those that were there for their first time. I will definitely look him up in another 5-years when it comes time to renew again !
Your class was the best of the three I have taken over the years. The lunch was a nice, unexpected treat. Thanks. The only reason I marked the “knowledge to be a better shooter” no, was because it covered what I already know and practice on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. Good class. If you are still doing it in another five years, I’ll be taking it from you again.
Chris gave an excellent presentation of the information required to enable us to be conscious consealed weapon carriers. I found he was very knowledgeable on the rules and regulations required to apply and receive our permits. It was a well spent Saturday.
The class was great, I came into the class knowing very little about guns and the laws. I came out of that class knowing more than I thought I would be able to understand. The instructor was very detailed in everything from type of guns, holstes, other defense pros, defense lawyers and how the laws in Minnesota work. Though I shot my first gun I felt that I was in the right hands and safe. Some of my family are already signing up for the class and I will continue to recommend this class.
The class was very informational and a relaxed atmosphere. Good emphasis on how to handle situations
this course really made me look at situations different than I would have in the past. I have already referred two people that will sign up in the near futuer
Great class lot of info you took the time to answer all our questions.I Have already given your name to some other people here in Blooming Prairie. Thanks again
It was and awesome class lots of fun and very knowledgeable. I had a great time and have already recommended it to a bunch of my friends. What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Nothing really comes to mind. You were very informative and had a great selection of gun and holsters to check out. I really appreciative you taking are small group and getting us the information we needed to better protect ourselves and our families.
Great class would recommend it to anyone
Great Class Chris, I’d highly recommend to anyone.
Professional instructor, laid back class atmosphere. So much to learn in only a few hours but he did great!
Class consisted of about 22 people which was perfect size. Mr. Marquette and the other instructor (sorry I don’t remember his name) presented a relaxed atmosphere. The class last 6 hours but is went by fast. A lot of information was provided. If you didn’t bring your own handgun the class provided the option of providing a handgun with ammo for you at no cost, this was a big plus for me and much appreciated.
Very good instructor, calm and in control at all times.. He does not seem to be overconfident like some “self proclaimed experts” I have seen on YouTube explaining gun safety. I was impressed with knowledge and level of detail .
What Can I Do To Improve The Class? Use a 6 foot bulls eye so i can claim the $20…….nothing, you material is just right.
I really enjoyed the class and feel that I know more about the laws relating to the permit to carry. What Can I Do To Improve The Class? I think the class was taught just the way it should have been. I don’t see any need to improve on it at all
The class was very informative and interesting. Most of the information was explained very well so it was easy to understand and examples or stories were excellent.
Just to let you know enjoyed the class
It was a great class, going into the class I felt that it would be more like a lecture, but it didn’t feel like a lecture whatsoever. Provided great information, definitely would recommend this class to my friends and family, and would sit through it again. But I would like to know if there is a class furthering the knowledge of hand guns by yourself. Whether a class or one on one.
Learned a lot on situation on how to judge what would be right to use and not too, and how laws take a big part in this right to carry.
I am very glad i took the class instead of the online option. All of our questions were answered as i had attended the class on the 19th with two friends. Definitely worth the drive for all the help understanding the laws about carrying a firearm.
Great class! Lot of the situation awareness stuff was taught to us in the Navy. Great refresher class for me. A lot of good info. about carrying etc.. My girlfriend will be taking it next. What Can I Do To Improve The Class? I thought you did a good job. Very knowledgeable. I’m excited for my girlfriend to take the course.
As someone who is fairly new to handguns, the instructor was very helpful. Everything was explained so that it was easily understood and all questions were happily answered. Thank you.
Chris did a great job. He gave us lots of very good information and we were able to ask questions throughout the class. He seemed to have excellent knowledge of all of the gun laws we need to keep in mind when carrying.
I walked in not really knowing what to expect, I learned more about handguns & laws pertaining to carrying a handgun. this class is well worth taking, its your RIGHT, & it could mean life or death to your family & or yourself.
I learned quite a bit in the class and I am glad I took it.
Really enjoyed the class, great review of basic security whether at home or away, as well as the rules and regs needed for the permit. Great presentation, and we loved that the speaker came to us at our location making it convenient for our attendees. I thought the class was very informative and interesting. The class did just what I needed. I am not planning to carry a gun regularly, but in the times that I do, I feel prepared. Thanks, we really liked the class.
I learned some great tips on how to carry safe and how to better prepare if I needed to use lethal force.
Chris was very knowledgable and knew the materials well. He did an excellent job of communicating the information in a positive fashion. You can tell that this is something that he enjoys and that he is an avid gun owner as well.
I was very satisfied with this class. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and approachable. He dealt well with a diverse class in terms of experience, comfort level with firearms, and confidence in their own shooting ability. I’m recommending this class to friends and family.
It was very thorough and detailed. Instructor has very good knowledge about the gun safety and permit rights/privileges…
Enjoyed the class and found it very informative for gun training and personal safety. Thanks
It was real nice the last instructor that I had swore all the time. Things are very professional I was very happy with class.
Thanks again I appreciate you coming out and teaching our private class. Everyone was very satisfied and I am glad it went smooth and safe. Thanks again, Jon M. p.s. I have already gave your card to several people at work.
As a first time shooter, Chris was very patient in helping me at the firing range. Thanks!
Appreciated all materials and effort used for demonstration and visual learning. I believe its as thorough as one can be for a limited time frame.
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and believed the pace of the class moved well. The instructor was well informed and kept the attention of this small class. Overall a great experience. Thanks for a job well done.
Chris, has an impressive background and talked very knowledgeable to our class. We had the condensed version of the course but I much better understand how to shoot and know what the potential outcome would be via the law then I ever did before I started the class.. I feel much more confident on what I would do in a self defense situation versus before I took the class.. Thanks Chris!, he was considerate of us asking if we needed bathroom and or stretch breaks.. There is a lot of material and not sure what else he could do to make it any better than what I saw?
Best class ever, Don’t change anything. Thanks
Class was well done, along with time and money well spent. I believe the class would even be beneficial to someone not looking to carry too.
Thanks Chris…good class
I liked the way you presented information & different subjects, very easy to understand , you explained things well . Thanks again Dave T. p.s. Thank you again for the use of your gun & ammo !!!
I Enjoyed the class. You’re welcome to advertise at our shop whenever you like. The tag flyer you left is all out of business cards. Many of our clients inquire about permit services and where they can go to learn more about weapons, ccw permits, and local and federal laws. As a former Marine Infantry Assaultman (Bravo 1/1 1st Marine Div.94-98) I found your class very informative. Stressing weapons safety is always paramount, and I felt safe in your class as well as on the range. We’ll be sending everyone your way. Thank you again!
Awesome job You do a Great job!!! The only thing I missed was when you put up what you should do if something was to ever happen. The lawyer stuff. Wish I could’ve wrote that all down so I could’ve drilled that into my thick head. LOL You do a Great job teaching that class. I just need to learn shorthand. Thanks Doug
I thought that class was excellent. So much was covered and more would have been if we hadn’t run over into the next scheduling for the room we were in. The one thing I might have enjoyed hearing was about the difference or comparison of bullet calibers. Rather incidental and perhaps not necessary. I did enjoy hearing about the difference in stopping power of the different calibers. Thanks for taking the time.
i found the class very informative, and chris was very factual and made the class very comfortable and open forum where it was very easy to ask questions,and covered things very well.
I will look you up in 5 years to do this all over again. I hope you’re still around this area & giving the class. I’ve had to sit through many military firearms training classes..I found your’s to be straightforward, informative, and down-to-earth about what we needed to know. Thank you!!
Couldn’t have done anything different. Thank you for providing an informing class and the convenience of being local. It was a very well developed class.
Awesome, laid back, good info
You did an excellent job teaching the class and held my attention the entire time. Thanks for your expertise! I am very glad I took this class!
Am proud to say that I am joining many friends and fellow Minnesotans in having a permit to carry. I intend to take this privilege very seriously.
The class was the right length and size. It was a comfortable learning environment. Chris was approachable and very knowledgeable on the subject matter. I got lots of great information on gun safety, laws, and preparation. Thanks for a great class!
Very good at making the points where they needed to be but at the same time you still cover the others
I enjoyed the class and how it was presented, I learn better that way with a PowerPoint and visuals.
I absolutely loved the class!! And am recommending it to every one as some one with a learning disability the class was still verry easy to understand and follow i thought Chris did an amazing job explaining and the tips and advice that was given was good as well
Great class! Would recommend to anyone!
Great class, recommend to anyone from beginner to experienced.
Was an awesome class. Learned allot. Was made aware of things that I never gave a thought to. Things I didn’t know could happen. Chris was easy to listen to. A real trooper standing outside for all that time watching us shoot when it was 30 below windchill. Thanks chris.
very informative class. Felt comfortable throughout the class and range. All questions answered and presented in a fun manner so as not to get boring. Very good class. I will definitely recommend to others.
I thought it was an excellent class. It was better than I anticipated.
