This is one of the best level one pistol classes you can take. All of the instructors are knowledgeable and enjoy what they do. You can really tell they’re passionate about teaching new gun owners how to be safe and smart with their weapon. Thank you everyone for all your help. I’ll see y’all again soon.

Friends of mine recommended Draken Training and I’m glad I listened. I took their force pro class and learned a lot of tactical information and had a great time too. The instructors are very knowledgeable and skilled and they were always willing to help me when I needed it. To anyone who is hesitant about taking gun safety and training courses but would still like to learn, I cannot recommend this place enough.
