This is the 2nd time I have taken this course, the first being 10 years ago when Frank first started. Frank Odermann is an outstanding and knowledgeable instructor. He takes the class at a slow pace so as to allow everyone to get comfortable with each step of preparing to shoot. We had one person who had never fired a gun up to an experienced shooter and each one got personal attention and direction. Guns make me very nervous, but I’m comfortable now in my basic skills and will build my confidence as I practice and take Defense 1&2. HIGHLY recommend at least this course, whether your a beginner or a lifer.
