"This BHS course beats
the pants off of a 'CHL' Course I took from a Gun Shop!"
great reputation of OFA is very well deserved. The Staff couldn't be better or
more helpful. I can't wait to return for another training. OFA is so well organized
it is inconceivable that one could do a better job" ~ David
"I am an NRA Instructor
for Basic Pistol at a local range and I wish we could do half as good as you guys!."

wife and I just completed the Basic Handgun Safety Course today and the few minutes
we took to add our thoughts to your questionnaire seem very small in light of
the experience we had, considering we talked about it the entire 1-1/2 hour drive
I have learned more in this
Basic Handgun Safety course and your Defensive Handgun 1 than in the last 2 years
of shooting IDPA & IPSC & everything else including video tapes, books
and learning from my friends...thanks!...Excellent courses!" Mike
My wife and I both
agree that every penny that class cost us was money well spent. You may be a bit
pricier than other classes, and the drive time to be there at 7:30 was a slight
inconvenience, but we were rewarded with such friendly folks, teaching but doing
it with some personality, and going so deep into it, that well be back.
I personally was astounded to find that much of what I had learned in the past
was added to in ways that I will carry with me forever (and some of what I had
learned was Bogus Crap!). Pointing and shooting is easy, doing it correctly
will take the training you give. My wife, my boys, and myself shoot regularly.
From now on it will be done with a higher level of safety and competence.
Course! Worth every dime!"
have previous Military training and I still learned many new things...
definitely return for more training. Thank you!"
Academys knowledge and competency was, beyond question, the best I have
ever experienced in any class and on any shooting range. Going in I knew that
this class was the beginning of our training as armed citizens. I can say now
that each successive class we take to reaching our potential will be taught at
OFA. We both look forward to the Defensive Handgun 1 class. We both hope to go
Many THANKS again!! You folks are awesome
and I will recommend you to anyone I talk to in the future.

"First comment: WOW! I learned a lot today - the legal
instruction was topnotch, as was the self-defense, safety, ammunition, cleaning
& care of handguns, & range instructions. I would highly recommend this
course to anyone who is interested in basic handgun safety. PS Thank you for the
candy, the delicious coffee, and the lovely rest room facilities."

course of its kind . . .I've attended a similar class in the area and it doesn't
even come close to this one! Your course is much more through, with highly knowledgeable
and skilled instructors. I should have come to your class first!"
appreciate the respect shown to every participant, regardless of ability. This
is my second class on basic handgun, once with another instructor at a different
class, and after taking this course I can't believe how much safety information
was excluded with my first class (at the other school). Thanks for an excellent
class! I will definitely be back from more!

instruction, professional, fantastic hands-on with some great positive reinforcement."
was a wonderful beginning class, thank you for taking the extra time and effort
to help me through the range practice"
years of shooting wrong, I am now attempting to change my ways. Thanks for a fun
day. Well worth getting up at 3:45 a.m."

knowledge I learned in class gave me the knowledge to know that if I had to, I
could defend me and my family."
