The combination of practical experience and first hand knowledge that Outer Edge is able to provide is truly a great asset for anyone who wants to become a more proficient shooter. I can't say enough good things about the CCW class and how enjoyable it was. I would recommend it to anyone who is even considering getting a permit.

Very informative class. Great instructors with plenty of time on the range.

No ego. No B.S. Just realistic, safe and educational firearms training. Outer Edge has something to offer for all skills levels- from the beginning shooter to more experienced shooters looking to hone their skills. Tim and crew will challenge your abilities and build your confidence as a shooter. You will not be disappointed.

Being prior military it was great to get a refresher with hand guns. The conceal carry class was a valuable asset thanks again for the knowledgeable coursework and hands on. This course is worth the money and time spent.
