    He was very patient. Very informative. Made sure my daughter and myself were very comfortable with the firearm and knew how to be safe handling them.

    Christophe was very patient. We had a 2 hour introductory safety course where my 16 year old daughter and I took the time we needed to get comfortable with the firearm. Christophe is very knowledgeable and his background made him immediately approachable.

    Christophe was such a patient instructor for this lady of 71 years of age! I learned so much on the basics of gun safety and looking forward to advanced shooting classes with him.
