Thanks for the wonderful class. My wife and I may never carry, but we sure did learn a lot. I did not want to get in too much in the class but you touched on why we were really there in the first place. I love guns and we have 3 kids. This scares the wife some, but after yesterday she is willing to teach them in a controlled enviroment.

I wanted to thank you for your very educational class. You do a very fine job of keeping the subject matter interesting and on track. It was much more enjoyable than I had anticipated. Assuming your still teaching in 4 years, I will certainly come back to attend your renewal class, and be sure to refer interested students to your class. Thanks again for your help and have a Happy and Fruitful New Year.

I would like to thank you for the CHL training class yesterday. Your instruction was precise and extremely informative. While talking to some of the other class attendees they valued your message on the importance of gun safety and respecting the power of having a CHL. …[personal details omitted] I mention my law enforcement background because yesterday your class helped me to reflect on and learn new tactics on verbal approach and handling. Thank you for your commitment to training and educating citizens within the great State of Texas.

Howard, I just wanted to express my appreciation to you for the superior job that you did with our Concealed Handgun License course on Saturday, June 28. The classroom portion of the course was both informative and enjoyable and the range portion of the day was a great experience thanks to your expertise. I am looking forward to receiving my CHL and I hope that our paths cross again some day. Regards,

“Howard, I just wanted thank you for your valuable instruction in the CHL class. I really didn’t know what to expect going in, but I was pleasantly surprised by your instruction and presentation of the state required material. I will definitely recommend your class to anyone I know who believes in the Constitution of the United States of America and more specifically the Second Amendment.”

“Howard, Just want to thank you again for a great day of education, firing our first handguns, and passing your well taught course. The other members of the class were great fun too. Tell your wife we, again, say thanks for her being there to notarize our paperwork. She is a delight. All the best”
