Top Notch Training
Posted by Scott Sagman on Mar 5th 2016
This was my 2nd and 3rd instructor class that I have taken from Bernard (read my 1st review on the instructor's pistol class because everything I stated in that review applies here). The major difference here is that in the shotgun and rifle class there is a lot more to learn and to qualify for. Bernard is patient and always takes the time to be sure you understand the lesson and more importantly that you are able to translate the necessary knowledge/skill set to your future student. He is adamant about safety and "allows no quarter" on the range...it is all business. He will only sign his name to certify you if he is comfortable that you will represent the NRA and his teachings appropriately. He represents what is best in the NRA and I highly recommend his classes to any serious firearms student. As I stated in my 1st review but is worth restating...you will get your money's worth and my expectations for the classes were not only met but were far exceeded.
Bernard throws a mean clay! ( ) Whoosh!!!

I had a very interesting trip to a land that time forgot... The DROP ZONE!!! HA! HA! Wow! What a GREAT place to train and to share shooting knowledge an experiences. Bernard kept the class moving and on track. I look for forward to returning for the Rifle Instructor Course very soon. Thanks Bernard. V/R Terry W. Brewer

Another great class, a lot of information presented, fun moments and experiences, entertaining tidbits of wisdom. Can throw some really wicked clay birds that are almost impossible to hit just to keep us humbled and from feeling too good about ourselves. Very professional, very functional, very educational.
Great NRA Shotgun Instructor Course

The challenge was teaching someone to break clays with their non-dominant eye shooting opposite their normal side. Quite a task because it make you and them work to overcome natural tendencies. Nicely done!
Fantastic Learning and Training expirience!!

What a great class!! Every bit of the curriculum is covered in detail. The practical exercises and in class presentations were seamlessly integrated into the course. The opportunity to engage Bernard and pick his brain for tips and information that will make for better well rounded instruction is priceless.
Thank you for the outstanding shotgun course

Thank you for the outstanding shotgun course. I appreciate the manner in which you manage your courses. I probably should have stay home and come to a later class but I can be a bit stubborn when it comes to sitting down for an injury. Anyhow I consider you one of my mentors and look for to another opportunity to train with you.
These Guys ROCK!

I have taken every course that Bernard offers. For me that has meant multiple 8 hour drives each way but the training that they offer is absolutely worth it. If you want to be the best then train with the best.
OUTSTANDING PRESENTATION AND DELIVERY
Posted by Bert Rosado, Rome GA, NRA Certified Instructor, Olympic Shooter on Nov 28th 2012
The presentation of the Learning Objectives were both fun and serious. Bernard and David have a different style of delivery which makes for a dynamic and interesting course. Teachers who will challenge you constantly. Filled with examples and anecdotes. Lengthy yet worthwhile. Time and money well spent. Achieve your goals while having fun!
