Just finished Stan’s Defensive Pistol level 2! Just as in level one, I walked out of class feeling as though I learned skills that I will take with me, practice and build on to become a better shooter! Stan is a wealth of knowledge, engages his students and always find a way of building confidence! I would highly recommend this class to anyone! I am looking forward to Level 3!.

Just finished Phase 1 CCL today, great course!! Stan seems to have a real passion for safety and did a great job of conveying the fundamentals of gun safety.

“Took IL CCL Course, class curriculum was exactly what I was looking for. Very informative on IL law, safe and responsible handgun training drills. Smaller class size made participants comfortable and at ease to ask questions. I will definitely pass along what I have learned and encourage others to check out Firearm Safety Group. Thanks FSG.”

“Raised a cop's daughter and always feared guns. Took on my fear tonight taking on the women's defensive pistol class. Second time ever at a gun range and the second being this class. I can't tell you how much of a personal growth opportunity I had tonight. I not only overcame my fear but was taught by the instructor Stan how to properly shoot and what he had me doing by the end of class was not the same scared elementary teacher that went into the class. I was scared to death. Now I can't wait to take the second class! The confidence and instruction I got from FSG was exactly what I needed tonight! Thank you so much!!”
