Our instructors and classes are top-notch. Here is what our students have to say:
This customer had such an extraordinary experience at Bristlecone, he had to broadcast it on the radio! Listen in as an unsolicited caller tells John Rush at KLZ 560AM about his experience:
“I originally signed up for the Women’s Only CCW class but was offered the opportunity to sign up for the pilot class for the CCW Reality-Based training. I wasn’t sure what to expect with this class, however it exceeded any expectations I had. Not only was it educational, but it was fun and taught by a great team of instructors.
The class was great for shooters with all levels of experience. Being a novice shooter, I was apprehensive at first. However, the class was far from intimidating, and the instructors ensured that everyone was comfortable. The Reality-Based training allowed for me to help reinforce the theories learned in class.
I encourage women who are looking for a great class to learn how to shoot and want to obtain their CCW to sign up for this class. I took Women’s Intro to Pistol before this class and I recommend that class too. Thank you Bristlecone for your awesome instructors!”
“I just took the CCW class offered here. I am a beginner/novice to all things guns. The instructor made this class. He was more than just informative, he was aware and connecting with the participants. He used his skills to not only show, but to teach. His confidence allowed those of us who were unsure, to be safe and to feel welcomed… I will be back, to attend more of the training this facility offers. ”
“I just took the CHP safety class. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. I love that a portion was in the class, then the other portion was on the range. It made me feel a lot more comfortable with my firearm… And made me more careful with how I handle my gun. Besides that.. I got my gun there a week ago. Great service, affordable and I was able to try out a couple guns to see which one I liked the most. Thanks! I’ll definitely recommend this place to others.”
“As a new gun owner and shooter, I cannot say enough about the way in which I have been treated with dignity and respect. No one has made me feel foolish or unwanted. For an older woman who has never held a gun before, the training I received …in the Pistol 101 class was excellent and perfect. The instructor taught the class the proper way to hold and shoot safely, as well as teaching us to respect the “tool.” I was blown away by the amount of attention the instructor has given to his profession, including review of videos and observations of his own students over the years in order to provide the highest quality of information. I look forward to learning more about my new sport.”
