Comments

I truly enjoyed the class and it's all thanks to both Cedric and Rod. Those two men do not play when it comes to firearm safety. They also don't play when it comes to showing and telling you the right way to to handle a firearm with caution and precision!!! I definitely recommend Barnes 1st step Firearms Training!!!
