Dan did a superb job teaching the CCW class. He is so knowledgeable and explains things in terms that are easily understood. He was very thorough in his teaching/training and made me feel very comfortable in using a firearm. I highly recommend Dan if you are interested in an Ohio Concealed Carry class.
My thanks to Dan and the informative training CCW class that he conducted. He is a confident and well prepared instructor. There is much to learn about the responsibilities of concealed carry and this training certainly answered those questionable areas.
I learned a lot in this class and would highly recommend this class to anyone looking to get a CCW. Dan is a very informative instructor and you will walk away with a very good understanding of the laws and requirements to obtain your CCW.
Great class and great instructor. Very informative class. Dan did a great job with presenting the material in a not so boring lecture manner. Dan is a very good instructor and is very helpful with any questions you have. I would definitely recommend this class for anyone wanting to learn.
I really enjoyed the class. It was very informative and went above what was required. Would defiantly suggest taking the class
Dan White did a great job teaching this class! He started from the very Basics assuming we had never even seen or held a firearm in real life and built on that Foundation. By the end of the class everybody felt comfortable being around, floating comma handling, and shooting Firearms. We also had a general understanding of when self-defense was truly considered self-defense. I would recommend this class to anybody interested in learning about concealed carry or exercising their right to concealed carry. Dan White is definitely a natural teacher!
