“Michael Briggs was a great instructor. Class was taught in a practical fashion with an easy to follow PowerPoint and verbal lecture. The range firing portion is conducted at total defense which is very close in Ramsey. That portion was easy to follow as well. I would highly recommend getting trained here whether renewing or applying for the first time.”
