Pistol Course Reviews:
Honestly, I don’t think anything is needed to improve the course. Tim is a great guy who made the content conversational and easy to understand, even for a novice like me. I walked into the course never handling a firearm, let alone shooting one. I was extremely nervous and found myself fumbling around with virtually every exercise.Just when I thought my anxiety and embarrassment might get the better of me, Tim’s encouraging words and calming influence helped me turned the tide. He never talked down to me and allowed me to take all the time I needed to get comfortable. I can’t tell you much that meant to me. By the end of the shooting portion of the course, I truly felt like I was ready to be a responsible firearms owner. All that being said, I highly recommend Tim as an instructor and would gladly attend more of his courses. – Kevin P.
This was a great course. We really appreciate the time you spent with us. – Barb M.
Tim was amazing! Kept us engaged, answered all questions, helped me with an issue I was having with my own pistol, and was able to get it resolved! Absolutely loved that class, learned a lot, and eager to get even better with shooting, (Instructor level!) lol … Gary helped Tim that day, and he did a great job as well! … I have already highly recommended the course! – Laura G.
I was told by a friend that gun safety was paramount in the NRA training. She was right! I wish my SCUBA certification board had the interactive quality of the NRA eLearning module – the best I have ever taken. Truly a rewarding experience. As a past presenter, I value class engagement and humor from the instructor(s). There was plenty to go around in this class. Well done! – David C.
Maybe video instruction and in person should take place together. I feel that would make the knowledge more cohesive. Class seemed to lack structure, though questions where answered during the instruction regarding many aspects of gun ownership and responsibility. – Dean V.
Course was excellent all around. Tim and Gary were extremely knowledgeable and answered all my questions. – Ken B.
Very informative and interactive instruction. – Teri O.
Rifle Course Reviews:
I found Tim Ernst to be an excellent listener, knowledgeable and supportive in the Basics of Rifles. Being supportive and complementary adds to your memory when tackling any new information for the first time. I am grateful for having Tim Ernst as my NRA instructor. – Tim N.
I wish the range was closer to the classroom or that the class was also taught at the range to save time and travel. – Jamie B. (So do we Jamie, so do we! – RavenWood Training)
Excellent class. Knowledgeable and friendly instructor. Made the class enjoyable and very applicable. – Gary B.
