    Gratitude for the work you all do

    The Defensive Handgun Course was top notch. Some of it was a reinforcement of what I already new, but its' always good to go over the basics again. The best part of the class was doing the different scenarios that you might find yourself in real life and how you would react. To include getting the feedback from Jager/David. The longer I look back at the feedback and go over the drills the more I take away from it. In Utah you don't even have to own a gun to get your concealed weapons permit, so starting off with this under your belt would be a great asset. You can always talk the talk, but it's not until you really find yourself in that situation do you know what you're going to do under stress. I am really looking forward to doing another class taught by Jager and Bravo. Another part of their philosophy that I liked was that was always about breaking contact as much as possible. I have looked at other instructors and schools and I can't tell you how little I heard that statement. Using your firearm is always your last resort, even at that point, it's stop the threat and break contact. Again it was great class. Oh and if Jager tells you to stop you really ought to do just that. He asked me to come at him to demonstrate using your voice to help deter people coming at you. I however didn't stop, so he pulled his training knife, rubber, and stabbed me in the belly. Had it not been a training environment I'm pretty sure I would have stopped. Didn't mean to hit me that hard, however he got well enough to leave a good bruise that is still healing. Doesn't help that I have Buddha belly! LOL. Thanks Jager for pain reinforcement. Next time I WILL stop!

    Patient, calm and very good at explaining

    I have worked with David several times, He is patient, calm and very good at explaining the why behind doing things. I am grateful I have been able to work with him to expand my knowledge and skills. I would not be able to shoot like I do without the knowledge and skills I have gained from shooting with him.

    David has been my defensive handgun instructor for 6 years

    David has been my defensive handgun instructor for 6 years. I guess you could say “I’m a huge fan”. People say that you should never meet your hero's because you will be disappointed. This will never be the case with David Burnell. In fact: David Burnell’s example, instruction, and friendship have meant everything to me. I look forward to seeing what David will teach us next.

    Extremely Valuable

    Worth every second spent. David is extremely knowledgeable and can help critique and improve with the most essential techniques. Would recommend to everyone.
