I attended the “So You’ve Been Shot ” class a few weeks back.

I had to relay how good this class was and how important the skills taught in it are.

You will get to use your CCW skills and equipment in order to gain a better understanding of their fundamental uses and if there are any drawbacks in your current choices.

It is a very realistic experience, fake blood, real medical supplies, and your own carry gear.

Phenomenal level of realistic scenario based training. If you haven’t attended a mixed TECC/live fire class, this is the one you want to attend.

It’s good enough I’ll take it again. 6 out of 5 stars.

Erik is an amazing teacher!!! His passion is evident with each class and his ability to find different ways to enable learning. He has a personal approach and adjusts for each ability and understanding level. Upon completing I have a greater understanding of guns – being comfortable in using, and more confident in how to avoid the need to use.


I recently completed the NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting course with Erik. He was an excellent instructor. Very experienced and educated. I knew very little about handguns coming into the class but walked away with a much better understanding and level of confidence about handguns and safety. Would highly recommend.

Erik provided very knowledgeable instruction in the Handgun Essentials 1 course. It was not the typical cookie cutter boring course that the state provides. I came out of this class feeling confident that I can effectively protect myself if need be. We had a great time on the range and went through a variety of drills to increase our shooting ability. I hope to attend more classes in the future.

Anyone who thinking to step into world of guns or weapons in general, Erik is the guy! Dont even waste your time looking any further. I personally guarantee it and will pay for your classes if you leave under educated or not satisfied. He will open your eyes on the world around you and will make you look on things like you never looked at them before. No bull shit, no time wasting. Straight on point 2 days 16 hours conceal and carry class… We cover above and beyond. Today is my 3rd night after class and still I have guns in my dream through out whole night. I personally believe his time should cost more….

I took Eric’s IL CCL class and loved the instruction. He discussed real world scenarios and went above and beyond the basics for use of force and firearms manipulation. Would highly recommend.
