I really enjoyed the class. I have recommended your company to all my friends and coworkers. The scenario training was so realistic and the feedback afterwards was worth the money alone. I can’t thank you guys enough. – SL
You have been included in our conversations the whole week – with enormous gratitude. Your ears should be burning! J, E and I have already visited the License office, completed our applications and are watching the mail for our licenses. Even more importantly, our kids and grandkids are now so much more observant. We feel they are many times safer because of your instruction. We have yet more family we must get to your class in the future, and at some point we might want a refresher course for us all, if y’all would consider such a thing!
Every time we tell folks about our wonderful experience, they express their interest also, so we will definitely keep in touch. Thank you for an extraordinarily professional and beneficial day. And a fun day, too! – SL
Thanks for a great class. I feel a lot more confident with my gun and look forward to recommending Talon to people. Thanks Again – VJ
We really enjoyed the Home Defense class we took last weekend. Your instructor has a great talent for helping us civilians put threat situations in perspective. Since starting your classes both of us have gone out and purchased new guns and feel much safer in our environments. – G
Thanks for the great information and I hope to take another class in the future. I have already recommended the class to three others I spoke with who were interested. – JA
Had a great time but more importantly l learned a lot. Dollar for dollar, you provide a great product. Certainly plan to take more of your classes, any skills we are trying to develop need repetitive effort. Please thank the rest of your team for their hard work and patience. Keep safe – G
Thank you all for a great experience! I will definitely recommend to friends, also I know that my husband has been waiting for an opportunity to take the class. I learned a lot and really feel more comfortable. Thank you for putting this class on!
I may be emailing you all with questions in the future and possibly see you in the future for classes as well. Take care and God Bless. – NC
I wanted to thank you for the great firearms safety class. All the instructors were professional and extremely knowledgeable. I learned some very important aspects of carrying a concealed weapon and the personal responsibility associated with it. I look forward to taking another class from the Talon Training Group. Thank you again – RB
I want to express my sincere appreciation for the excellent instruction that I received at your Firearms Safety Class! The classroom instruction was very enlightening and clearly reinforced safety and the lawful use of firearms. The hands-on familiarization with a variety of pistols and revolvers was also very informative. I had thought that I was fairly proficient with firearms, up until we continued our instruction at the range, and subsequently, practiced real life defensive scenarios. After all, I am the son of a former employee of, and competitive shooter for, the former Winchester Firearms Company. My brothers and I received firearms training as we were growing up, and we also were competitive shooters. I very quickly found out how little I knew about the use of a firearm in self-defense! What an eye opener! Your live fire drills at the range had little to do with my previous competitive experience. Self-defense, I learned, is very close and personal! The repetition of those live fire drills, and the personal attention you provided was invaluable.
Last, but surely not the least, were the scenarios that we practiced after we left the range. Each one of those scenarios forced the students, time and time again, to assess a potentially dangerous situation, and to make a correct decision on how to respond. For me, the scenarios really brought home the significance of the statement, concerning the use of deadly force for lawful self-defense.
I strongly urge anyone that is interested in self-defense to experience the Talon Training program! It is a no nonsense, essential experience, taught by experienced law enforcement officers, that know how the “bad guys” think and act.
Thank You Talon Training Group!

Great Training and I learned soooo much. I really felt you get so much for your money with your group. – JO, Retired Professor
I knew nothing about guns before this class. I learned so much more than I expected! It’s obvious that all of Talon’s instructors are deeply committed to sharing what they know: how to defend yourself in a variety of ways and in a variety of scenarios. I had never shot a gun and the class allowed me to shoot a variety of firearms at the range–another huge plus. The instructors were kind, patient and completely professional. I couldn’t recommend this class more!
All my best and hats off to everyone at Talon! – MF
Thanks for the training. Your crew was very professional and I also thought the course was quite educational and worthwhile. – PT
I attended the advanced class and it was very eye opening. I really enjoyed it. The house clearing showed me how easy you can die if you make one small mistake. I didn’t fully clear a room upstairs and continued. If it had been real life I would have lost my life. Scary stuff. Thanks for your time and the top-notch training. – SC

I took the Talon Basic Concealed Carry class today and I have to say it was an amazing class. The guys really know what they are doing and it was a great overall experience. We were able to shoot many different models of handgun and I personally learned a lot about what I like and what I don’t about certain models. I would recommend the class to anyone and will probably follow up with a more advanced class in the future. – AM
I took the Talon Basic Concealed Carry class and highly recommend it… it was a full day but worth it… plan on following up with the advanced class. The opportunity was there to shoot a range of pistols, and there was a wealth of info provided…good folks!
I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the Advanced Class. The classes have really given me a new level of confidence. I know that if I am ever in the situation to need my gun, I will, and God help the other guy. Life threatening situations are not the time to learn as you go.
Thank you guys for taking the time to pass along your years of experience. I will make sure to let every person I know that has a gun, wants a gun or just wants to be confident when they get out of their car at night to sign up! If you ever have someone asking for a reference, tell them to give me a call. Thanks again, – CP
I wanted to take the time to thank both of you for the Firearm Safety Training Class. The class was to the point, very informative and drives home the responsibilities of making the decision to carry a concealed weapon. The role play segment was especially eye opening and provides great exposure to potential encounters, thankfully in a staged environment. My daughter, who held and fired a handgun for the first time at your class, gained valuable insight into how to protect herself. Keep up the good work and I’m sure you will see us at future sessions as time permits. Thanks – JB, Retired Engineer/Soldier
Thank you again for such a wonderful class on Saturday. Thanks! – B, PhD Student

Thanks again for making such an excellent class available to the general public. I learned a lot of valuable information today and hope to be able to take some of your advanced classes in the future. You both have an excellent teaching style, and it was great to have a fellow lefty as an instructor! – PB
Thank you for an excellent training experience. It was leaps and bounds beyond “firearm safety.” You made me think about issues related to personal safety and self defense in a very different light. The role playing scenarios alone were worth the cost of the class. We have signed up for the advance class and look forward to it. – PS
Just wanted to express my appreciation for the training you presented today that my daughter and I attended.
The training was to the point, as advertised, did not use a bunch of needless, nonsensical information, and seemed to hone in on what needed to be said. The field exercise was very valuable for the novice and the experienced hand alike. Your training and information not only was exactly what I felt my daughter needed, but was very informative to me. After a total of 20 years of active duty in the military and 11 years in the ready reserves, and many years hunting with shotguns and high powered rifles (Winchester Model 70 .243), I have had more than an equal share of time on the range and in actual live fire scenarios. Unfortunately, it has been over 25 years since I have fired on a range; I say all of this to let you know that I used to know my way around weapons, but my skills (or what’s left of them) needed practice. I also learned quite a few things today.
We thank you for your efforts, considerations and kindness. – JB
Thanks for the class. I enjoyed it and I’m telling all my friends about it… Thanks for all the help. – RP
