More Happy Customers!

I just wanted to share a couple of email messages that I've received from happy customers about my course. This is one from a husband that had his wife take my class recently.

"Just wanted to give you some feedback on your online course.  My wife took your online a few weeks ago and I was impressed with the course content and structure.
Being new to pistols, I actually believe she got more out of the online course than she would have gotten in attending an actual class.  Sometimes I think a physical class gets sidetracked on stories about this and that and the attendees, especially those new to pistols and CCW, lose focus on the actual content and purpose of the class.  Not to mention that individuals' attention spans vary.  This course allowed her to complete sections at her pace.
She received her permit within one week of submitting it to the sheriff's office.
Anyway, well organized material and I hope it is successful for you.  I have recommended it to several of my friends who were interested in obtaining a CCW permit but for whatever reason have been reluctant to attend a face-to-face class.

And another one from a woman that took my course a few months back...
"I will definitely tell any friends that I come into contact with about your course.
I did enjoy all the links to the articles about the different ways to carry concealed.  Especially the article from a woman’s perspective.  It gave me a lot of information that I had never even previously considered.  For example, making sure that you are only wearing clothes/bags/ etc. that you would wear regardless of whether or not you were carrying a gun.  That it was important to be comfortable and confident.  If you were wearing something simply because it conceals well, you may look more awkward and out of place, which might draw more attention.
As I began looking into it, I realized that carrying for a woman is definitely a totally different ball of wax and I will need to really get ‘hands-on’ when purchasing my equipment.  It appears there is a wide variety and unless it works and it comfortable, I will not be likely to utilize it.  I was also able to come up with pros/cons of carrying on the person or in a bag.  I think that is an important discussion.  I think carrying in a purse is better than nothing, but it does present problems that need to be thought through before attempting to do that.  I think had I not had the information presented, I would have simply opted for this rather than realizing that I did have good options for carrying on my person.  So, I think that was a good article to include.

I couldn't have said it any better!
