Teaching is hard. Learning is easy if the teacher makes it entertaining. Mike made a four hour class fly by with a smattering of anecdotes, humor and quips, put together with a lot of effort and time on his part but presented smoothly. It was a pleasant experience. Even with a (distant) military background heavy in small arms experience, the course was a great review of basics. The legal issues of gun use and ownership were clearly and succinctly presented, much of which was new to me. I can't imagine a better course for those wishing to join the hundreds of thousands Utahans with concealed carry permits. Highly recommended.

Mike's class was AWESOME!! He is an excellent teacher, very engaging and clearly knows his stuff. I was nervous to sit in a class for 4 hours but it honestly went by fast. His class set up, teaching style, snacks, water bottle, etc. kept my undivided attention. I also think he is hilarious! But he also knew when to keep things serious. I will, and have, recommend(ed) this class to everyone! :)

I loved it. My husband and I took this class because we are interested in learning more about guns, gun safety, and gun laws. Myself being a total beginner with guns found this class to be extremely informative and the 4 hours just flew by. Mike is a great teacher who gave me what I need to know without any fluff. It was a great way to spend a night and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone. I learned a ton and found all the information to be very interesting. The videos shown and all material covered was thought provoking. I feel a lot more confidence toward guns in general and am more aware of when to use them and additionally when not to use them. Next step, filing off the paperwork, researching more on my own, and familiarizing myself with guns in a gun range with my husband. Thanks so much Mike for your wealth of knowledge and being willing to share it with me.

This was an awesome class, well instructed. Mike is very knowledgeable and able to answer most questions immediately. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised to find the class taught in a relaxing home environment. Which included bottled water and light snacks. If your taking course, this is the place to take it. You "might" find the price slightly less expensive elsewhere. But, you will not find the atmosphere and knowledge that only Mike brings to the table. Mike, two thumbs WAY UP!:)

Mike's class was incredible. When you think about studying gun laws most people consider it to be boring stuff. Mike's personality brought the class to life. He also helped me gain a greater desire to learn more about the law and how if works for us. Mike uses real life examples that anyone of us could be faced with everyday. He leaves your mind thinking what would I do in this situation. You discuss these situations as a class in a very open and comfortable setting. Mike is a great teacher and I would recommend him to anyone. This is the best class to take for your concealed weapons permits.

Mike did a great job in presenting the material and making the class both interesting and enjoyable...especially for a chilly and snowy Saturday morning. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about safety and understanding the regulations. He interacts with his students and knows when to laugh and when to be opposed to simply preaching the material. The 4 hour class time flew by and I attribute that to his teaching style. I would recommend his class to anyone who is seeking their permit.

Mike teaches a great class, whether you have gun experience or not. Very informative but also interesting and fun! At first the class sounds like it will be long and boring, but Mike was a great teacher who made the class a good experience, not something to dread sitting through! I would recommend this class to anyone! Learned a lot of things I never knew and now have resources for gathering more information about Utah gun laws and concealed carrying.

Mike's class was simply excellent. 4 hours is a long time to sit in a classroom, but I was honestly surprised when the class ended -- I couldn't believe 4 hours had gone by so quickly! That's because the class was packed with great info and Mike was a very engaging instructor. He definitely knows what he is about. I would recommend this class to anyone and everyone. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
