“Guys! This is the person to go to!!

I have been recovering from an injury and noticed that my accuracy with a handgun had deteriorated somewhat. I asked him for help in rectifying the situation. I was impressed by his professionalism and genuine interest in helping you develop your skills. Calvin takes the time to find out exactly what your needs are, and he then comes up with a plan to help you get to where you want to be.

Above all you get treated like an adult!!!

By the end of the lesson he had my friend, who had never handled a firearm, shooting his 9mm GLOCK. I think we just added another member to the list of MD gun owners. It was a very enjoyable morning and we plan to schedule a few more sessions with him.”
