      Great course! Dave is very knowledgeable. He made the class anything but boring and the 8 hours went by fast. I learned a lot and had a good time. Everyone was safe during the firing session. I highly recommend this course. The price was well worth it.

    Took a certified basic pistol course so I could get my LTC. The info I was given was anything but basic. I was very impressed with the knowledge and expertise in every aspect to guns. From gun saftey, storage, shooting…. Our instructor was Dave. I have gone back 3 more times to take a more advanced tactical training class and a self defense class. Both of those classes were Awesome! I generally don’t do the whole (review thing) but was so impressed with this facility I figured I had to. I will definitely be taking more classes!

    My friend and I participated in the women’s self defense class with Dave, It was extremely informative. I loved being able to learn many useful tactics in not being the victim, knowing your surroundings, and learning how to defend yourself if you need to. We practiced many drills and went into physical training. This class taught many useful tools how to be cautious and aware. Can’t wait for the next class!

    My friend and I attended the ltc course with Dave, he was great at explaining many details about what we needed to know. I learned many new things in the class and he kept it real, and fun while he was going over everything. My friend got his license to carry and I will be applying for mine soon. Overall very informative.

    I have taken two of daves classes. The basic pistol
    And the Utah multi state course. Both classes were very informative. Being around guns for my whole life I
    Still learned many things in these classes. Dave is a great guy and always makes you feel comfortable. Daves classes are good for everybody. From people who know a lot about guns or people who have no experience at all with guns.

    Two weeks ago I took my LTC class at SSD Tactical Training. At first I was a little nervous not knowing what to expect. Director of Training, David Williams did an excellent job with presenting the material and making the entire process interesting and fun. His experience and know-how on the subject is second to none.

    At the end of the class we were able to practice shooting on targets which also made for a nice keepsake. I’m looking forward to doing more hand to hand training that he offers at his facility as well.

    If you are interested in arming yourself with the tools needed for self-defense and personal protection I highly recommend giving SSD Tactical Training a try–you will be happy that you did.

    I have had many instructors for school and other certifications before and although I have never been to a firearms course before a few weeks ago at SSD Tactical Training, I am inclined to believe that this facility and the instructor are the best in the area. Very impressive. Dave had my attention with every single word – that is not an easy feat. I highly recommend learning from his experience.

Definitely taught me a lot that I was unaware of as a gun owner of many years. Can’t say much more then to absolutely go to his coarses great instructor A++++++++++++

    I’d been wanting to get my LTC for some time now and when I saw this class being offered I signed up right away. I’m so glad I chose this class, I left feeling confident and comfortable handling a firearm. I especially liked the amount of time we spent handling the different firearms and learning to load and unload the ammunition. I think a lot of women find firearms intimidating so it’s great that we were not only allowed to experience live fire, but also learn about all the parts. I liked that we were able to observe Dave clean his Glock as well. Very thorough class overall, I’d highly recommend it to anyone wanting to get their LTC.

He was very knowledgeable, provided hands on experience during class, has a wealth of information available during, and after class, and we finished with target practice. It was a great experience.
