I recently had the privilege of completing a rifle training course with Marshall and Billy, and I must say it was an outstanding experience. The course instructors demonstrated an exceptional level of expertise and professionalism, ensuring a safe and controlled environment throughout the entire program. The curriculum was thoughtfully structured, covering everything from firearm safety and proper handling techniques to marksmanship fundamentals and tactical shooting drills. The training facility itself was well-equipped and maintained, allowing for a comprehensive hands-on learning experience. The instructors’ patient and engaging teaching style fostered a positive learning atmosphere, and their individualized feedback greatly enhanced my shooting skills. Overall, this rifle training course was an invaluable opportunity that exceeded my expectations, equipping me with the knowledge and confidence to responsibly and effectively handle a firearm. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking to improve their marksmanship abilities and enhance their understanding of rifle operation.

Marshall’s extensive knowledge and expertise in defensive shooting were immediately apparent. His ability to effectively communicate complex concepts, combined with his unwavering commitment to safety, made the learning process both educational and enjoyable.

I didn’t exactly know what to expect, but once I got there the good vibes took over.  With their friendly demeanors and having everything prepared for our class, it was a great start! They even pre-thought about what we could’ve forgotten and brought extras of everything. Marshall and Maggie went above and beyond to make the day not only comfortable and fun, but the wealth of knowledge we left with……incredible!

I had shot before with friends who never fully explained much, and now that I know….being on the range with them wasn’t exactly safe.  Add sketchy rigging/modifications and you could figure out why I was always extremely leery of shooting.  However, I had always wanted to learn to be able to protect myself and family should I ever need to. With that in mind, I left wanting to take my husband directly to the gun store (LOL) and get me an AR-15, a Smith and Wesson 9mm, a Glock 48, or one of the Sig Sauer P365 XL’s!   OH, and I will never use the word “CLIP” again.  Thank you for all that you do! We appreciated the day and now our newfound “shootin’ confidence”!

What an amazing day my work colleagues and I had on Saturday for a Defensive Shooting Class with Marshall Luton!  We were a bunch of novices to the process and more than a little intimidated by shooting guns.  By the time we all left there, we felt informed and certainly more equipped to understand dealing with threats.   We not only learned the basics of handling and firing a weapon, but also what to look for in our everyday surroundings to keep us safe.

Even though Marshall works with highly trained and experienced law enforcement groups, he also knows how to speak to newbies on their level and not overwhelm us with information.  He provided great instruction and took away our fears so that we could learn.  His relaxed manner of teaching, sense of humor, incredible patience and willingness to guide us all individually made for a fun and worthwhile day.  We’ve all unanimously agreed we want to schedule another class in the Fall!

I would highly recommend his classes!

I have 15 years of law enforcement experience and throughout all the years, including the academy, there has never been any training provided to deal with suspects in a rural environment. This course is a huge eye opener and exposes everything we’ve been lucky enough to have gotten away with after years chasing people into wooded areas.  We are simply blessed that our lack of knowledge and training in this arena, never cost us anyone’s life.  The training provided in this class is just the tip of iceberg, and in my opinion, is a MUST for all law enforcement personnel whether you work in rural areas or not. The instructor, Mr. Billy Smith, is knowledgeable in any subject, personable, patient, and WALKS THE WALK.

If you are in law enforcement, this course is a must have in your training resume. With conditions being what they are in the world today, if you’re NOT law enforcement, you need to have this knowledge as well.  I would take this course again and will recommend it to others. 10/10.
