I wonderful and skillful days. First day I thought I knew it all, second day found my rhythm. God help the criminal who tries to test his luck. This course will hone your skills and confident with wealth of knowledge! Six years of military flying I never learned this much in two days. My son beat me in score but he learned more than I did, Experience of life time. Slap, Rack, Flip.

I recently took the Combat Tactical Academy Rifle I Course. I was amazed at the level of expertise on hand. Not only John, but all of his staff were very knowledgeable. This was an amazing course and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn how to really handle a rifle. I think all the people in my class were repeat students to CTA. I was the only first timer, but I can't wait to return and take the CTA handgun course! Thanks again John and everyone at CTA.

I've taken both the 2-day basic handgun and 2-day tactical rifle courses from Combat Tactical Academy. I highly recommend their courses to anyone at any skill level. John and his staff of instructors are simply outstanding. Even these basic courses greatly added to my skill level, knowledge base and comfort level with my firearms. Can't wait unitl my next class!

My wife and I were on vacation from England and decided to do a one day private hand gun course for beginners. It was an amazing and inspiring day going from the very basics to some advanced drills. John made the day so much fun, including shooting zombie targets and being timed on how quickly we could get two accurate rounds off from the weapon starting in the holster. There was a strong emphasis on safety, as we would expect, and we were taught methods to improve accuracy and speed. John was assisted by the very helpful Christian who helped make the day a very memorable one, and has inspired us to continue our training whenever we return.

We attended a two day private Tactical Handgun class with Combat Tactical and the experience was exactly what we wanted. It was a very professional and encompassing class. We would definitely recommend to others and repeat our own training experience with John as we look to expand skills in the future.

Great CCW class today 12-09-12. My daughter and I attended and had so much fun. John is a superb instuctor and made the class very fun ,inviting and a great all around experience. Shane and Alex were great too! Looking forward to putting more rounds down range in a future level 2 class.

Thanks for a great class. Being a first time gun owner and not having much experience with shooting a gun, I feel this class is invaluable. It opens your eyes to a multitiude of scenarios and really makes you think. There is so much information given it really does take 2 days to get though it. John and Chancey were great teachers and made the class enjoyable. If you have a gun and have not had any formal training, I would highly recommend you take this class....Thanks again Keith

If you own a gun or are considering purchasing one I highly recommend you take a class from Combat Tactical Academy. I have owned guns for many years but haven't had any formal training until now. The instructors are very professional, knowledgeable, and make the class interesting and fun. I realize I have a lot more to learn and plan on taking another class in the near future with the rest of my family.

So, I was introduced to firearms when I was a kid and have owned guns for many years... Thought I knew quite a bit! After about the first 10 minutes into the class I could see that the illusion of my bucket being somewhat full, diminished down to about a teaspoon... If you own a firearm, take the class!... If you are considering a firearm purchase, take this class! If you don't own a firearm and have no desire to purchase one, take this class! And it's fun too!

all i can say is WOW! i have never had so much fun while LEARNING so much in a single weekend. my wife and i were complete novices when took the 2 day level 1 handgun course with john, chauncey, smitty, and brandy. we came out of there absolutely confident and secure in handling our firearms. the course stresses safety and self defense and any worries we had went out the window in the first 15 minutes. after that it was pure adrenaline pumping fun. john was hilarious and had us laughing and having a good time the entire time. it was like having a good friend who also happened to be an expert teach you. definitely a life changing experience. we can't wait to take another course with combat tactical. i want to take ALL of them!

Thank you Chauncey for a fantastic class. I like your teaching style. It is very comfortable. I have had no formal training even though I have handled firearms my whole life. This class will improve anyone regardless of their skill level. This class is a must for anyone considering concealed carry. I have taken my kids through the class and a couple of us have taken it twice. Now we are moving on to the level 2 class.

If I ever wanted to take a class that would satisfy all my needs about safe gun handling and family protection, this would be the class. I searched a long time trying t find a class that covered all the bases and wen I found this one, I took the class and it was the best thing I've ever done. I came away with complete satisfaction knowing now, I have great basic skills. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CLASS TO ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING FOR GREAT TRAINING. Very informative with highly skillled Range Masters on hand to answer ALL your questions. This is a five star ***** training opportunity. Try it, I know you will be very satisfied with the results.

I own a gun store and I'm an CCW and NRA instructor in Arizona and I tell you what I learned more in this 1 class then I had in any other classes taken. They know how to keep the class engaged as well as a teacher vital skills needed to protect yourself and your family. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I took a basic hangun two day class in Utah a few months back it is veary good. I have taken a lot of other training classes and this one is right there with the best. I particularly liked the relaxed freindly atmosphere, and the fact that I was allowed to use my advanced skills and not held back even though it was a basic class. Im going back

Just finished the two-day handgun class in Utah. What amazing instructors. Very friendly, helpful, and so knowledgeable. They really helped me overcome some bad habits and improve my accuracy. We had the pleasure of working with John from the LV center the first day and he such a fun guy. If you are looking for any kind of gun training I would recommend signing up. You will not regret it.

AMAZING class!!! I had a great time during this two day course. I had no formal training before this, and after, I felt completely confident and comfortable handling firearms. Most of my family have taken the level 1 course, some of them have even taken it twice. Thats how good it is. Chauncey and Drew were awesome teachers. I learned so much and will definitely be back for more classes.

Before the Combat Tactical I had no formal training of any kind with a firearm. I felt comfortable with firearms and was a decent shot but there was plenty of room for improvement. I also wanted to carry a concieled weapon and was faily confident I could use one if at all necesary. Now that I've taken the course everything has improved. I'm shooting better groups than I ever have and doing it faster than I was before. My confidence level with a firearm has also grown because of the knowledge the class gave me, not to mention the fact that I feel exponentially more confident in my ability to deply and manipulate my weapon if a situation was ever to arise. I can now draw from a houlster and quickly and accurately fire multiple rounds. I have more respect and more knowledge for how a violent encounter would work and what would take place. Chauncy was a great instructor and did an excelant job explaining and demonstrated the skills and also did a good job explaining the reasons for every little thing. He answered any questions and did everything he could do to help in any way. The course was great and I would recomend it to anybody that has done as little as think about carrying a weapon or defending themselves with a firearm. If you sign up you will learn a lot of good and useful skills and become even more comfortable handleing a weapon.

This was one of the best investments I ever made. John and Chauncey were excellent teachers and their experience and background really stood out. They were able to make it not only a very educational but fun as well. The class gave me the knowledga and confidence to continue my training, and now I actually know what to do. I have already recommended this class to several of my freinds and family. I will definitely be taking another class from Combat Tactical.

I looked at a few different companies that offer handgun training before I chose Combat Tactical Academy. And I have to say it was the best choice ever. The amount of information you gain in just two days is impressive. The whole team is very knowledgeable and really strive to help you with all of your questions. I walked away on the last day with a confidence I wasn't expecting. I look forward to taking other courses offered by Combat Tactical in the future.
