Verification Request

Requesting verification for an individual who runs a tactical training company in Alabama called The Shooting Institute. I have taken classes that he instructed before and he is a professional and seems to be a solid dude. I don't want to throw out his name over public form, I would prefer a pm. Just want to verify the training we are getting. Thank you!

Dark Helmet correct. They all seem like good dudes. The owner doesn't seem full of bs. What he says sounds legit. I feel kinda weird checking him out because he has never given me a reason to doubt him and like I said he comes off like a good dude. I've just heard to many horror stories from guys who believed the wrong people.

To clarify the website that was previously listed was to the Indiana branch of the company here is the link to the Alabama branch of the company. The Alabama branch is the part of the company of which this instructor is out of. http://www.theshootinginstitute.com/
