October 2019 - Advanced Patrol Rifle School; This was a fantastic course overall. I had a chance to hone my rifle skins and also challenged myself to find my weaknesses. I will recommend this course to all military/law enforcement. Donaldson was a great instructor who has been in law enforcement. He was extremely knowledgeable and a real world guy.

April 2019 - National Patrol Rifle Conference & Championship; I had a great time at the 2019 NPRC event hosted by Center Mass. I was able to run into former instructors, who are all great, and meet new people to network with. The course of fire was great and provided expectational areas of interest to show my weak points. Thanks again for the great time and I will see all of you at the Center Mass Sniper Challenge in August.

May 2019 - Firearms Instructor (Pistol & Patrol Rifle) School; Rob knows his stuff. He does not mess around and gets work done on the range in a timely manner. Very challenging course, both physically and mentally, but I now feel more prepared for the worse case scenario and when it will arise.

April 2019 - Police Sniper Instructor School; Mike is a talented and likeable instructor. He knows his stuff and can effectively relay his knowledge to others. He keeps students engaged while maintaining safety.

Thank you for running such a professional outfit. I have been fortunate to attend a ton of training over the years and this class was top notch. The class material was great and the ratio of classroom to range time was perfect. Mike won the class over from the very beginning. I would be incredibly surprised if anyone reported a negative experience. Mike held us to the standards while keeping things fun. The trip to Center Mass, Inc. was great. The CAPS system was amazing and I got to shoot night vision for the first time. Invaluable.

I drove from Florida 15.5 hours one way to attend this class. I also had an hour and fifteen-minute commute each morning and evening to and from where I was staying with my brother. I can tell you all that driving would have made for a miserable experience had this not been such a great class.

January 2019 - AR-15 Armorer School; Been to schools for 20 years, but none had the cutaways showing how parts interact. Outstanding. Great Class & atmosphere. The Slides showing firearm parts interaction is very beneficial to people understanding. Another great class, CMI & Ned.
