  1. Personal Protection inside and outside the house. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 30th 2012

    I have recently taken the personal protection courses offered by the drop zone instructors.
    The class for both inside and outside the house have alot of material to learn, the drop zone goes through all required matwrials and some . They have officers who have vast experience both in the handling of all makes and models of hand gun. The personal teaching and direction are second to none , they are very easy to learn from in a very direct and positive way .The materials were covered well and the end result wasa the passing of the required test. Recommend this course highly.

  2. PPOTH realistic training for CCW 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Dec 15th 2012

    I was amazed at the realistic training in the PPOTH course compared to other pistol courses I have taken. This course covered not only the basic in a pistol course but also taught real applications of CCW techniques from true concealment. The course covered the implications of CCW and the use of deadly force in a self defense situation. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who considers CCW.

  3. The most realistic training I could have hoped for! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on Sep 24th 2012

    I took this course thinking I would get some good training, learn to draw from a holster properly, and learn some defensive pistol shooting. I had no idea it would include so much more! I am thrilled with this course and would recommend it to everyone!
