Best firearm training I have ever received. Stephen helped me better my shooting and fundamentals. Even with military training my shooting wasn't excellent. I can say now I'm a lot better than I was before the class at tactical u. I plan on taking more classes with Stephen- Justin Army MP

I honestly would recommend the class to anyone I know. If you want a thorough teaching and to learn how to be safe handling your weapon this is your instructor.

He was a very excellent and patient instructor. Really great at giving you directions and getting you to understand how and why things are done! Highly recommend!

Steve is thorough. I can't really say that enough. He is very thorough and I appreciate that more than I can say because one can never know too much about guns or gun safety and not knowing enough is frankly, a terrifying thing. Thoughout the course of the training session he discussed everything from basic gun safety to, to mechanics, law, and even the proper psychological mindset one must have in order to safely and confidently yield a firearm. The actual practical instructive portio...view moren of the lesson is organized so that one can take baby steps - getting acclimated to each step required in the process of handling and firing guns - so that by the time I was at the range I was a lot less intimidated by the prospect of shooting a gun. In addition, when at the range he offered clear and concise tips that helped my shooting technique improve at a spectacular rate. Moreover, Steve goes above and beyond what is required of him because he teaches more than just gun safety, he teaches one how to be safe, situationally aware at all times, and perpetually prepared for potentially dangerous scenarios one might face in everyday life.view less

I recently took a CCW class with Tactical U and instructor Steven C. I had very limited experience with safety/operation/accuracy of a firearm prior to my class. What a difference 6 hours makes. I had no idea what goes into the correct, safe and accurate (to name a few) ways to handle and use a firearm. Steve's decades of experience and training was very beneficial to me and the rest of the class. I highly recommend Tactical U if you are interested in receiving training from profession...view moreal, experienced and talented people.view less

FLAWLESS!!! I can’t say enough positive things about Steve C. and his class. I am not one to recommend many people, but I must say that Steve delivered the best training class I could have wished for. His passion for teaching, his knowledge level and his enthusiasm is extremely contagious. I left his class 100% confident and extremely energized. Without a single doubt, Steve is the one to go to if you want to master how to safely handle a weapon for personal /family protection...view more. Thank you Steve! You deserve every compliment you get.view less

You get what you pay for

Steve's class is priced slightly more than others, however it is longer and much more comprehensive. In the end it is an investment, you will actually learn safety that not only benefits you but anyone around you. I definitely recommend taking any weapons class he teaches.

Training by a proffessional! I've never felt comfortable around firearms. Thank You Steve for your thorough teachings and helping me walk out with confidence. Your class was full of information and your message was delievered well and clear. Can't wait to sign up for another class.

Steve at Tactical U is an amazing teacher. I have taken two courses: intro to AR-15 and CCW. In both courses, he was professional, his lessons were well put together, and he gave every student a lot of one-on-one time. I highly recommend Tactical U.

Summary: This is training tha...

Summary: This is training that will separate you from others in a good way. I came away with practical skills, techniques, and knowledge that go far beyond my previous ability to simply make holes in paper with bullets. The instructors are real people who are friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and practice what they preach. I recommend this class as the right way to get grounded and learn respect for deadly firearms. It is also a lot of fun!

Impressions of Instructors:

- Sa
...view morefe - rules and understanding of those rules come first and they are consistently applied throughout the entire training experience.
- Friendly - smiles, handshakes, courtesy, and having fun are abundant.
- Encouraging, Supportive, and Understanding - They get you involved and motivate you no matter your abilities. Adjust pace of training for your skill and physical conditioning levels.
- Through
- Competent
- Entertaining - They have many engaging and humorous stories of real life teaching, consultative work, and personal experiences.
- Human and Approachable - They are not chest beaters who cram their stuff on you. They were like normal people who are also very good with firearms.
- A really good shot! - You will see perfect triangles during zeroing demonstrations and nickel size groupings at 100 yrds. It really encourages you to practice the techniques they have taught you.

What I Learned in the Intro to ARs Class:

- Techniques and practices which are compliant with the Criminal Justice Standard.
- Detailed information on AR platform including history, anatomy, operation, and cleaning procedures.
- Body placement of rifle, heel toe, Ready high/low. No bent over neck.
- Trigger control, slack out, press press press, bang, out till reset, breath, exhale, press press press...
- Stance, feet planted, forward aggressive lean.
- Muzzle awareness and control. Protect life first then property.
- Drills to practice at home, dry, which ingrain the proper behaviors that will automatically surface in any situation.
- Team movement and awareness of others on your team.
- Skills and techniques to show local range jockeys that they may be left behind or worse end up dead in a real fire fight.
- And much much more.

Some Observations:

- Classroom is a bit warm in the late spring early summer.
- Food, drinks for purchase, and restrooms are accessible during classroom breaks.
- Range is relatively new and well built with shaded firing/staging lines with benches and chairs. The range staff was friendly and the restrooms were unexpectedly clean and accommodating.
- Correspondence related to training confirmation had different class name than web site offering (Intro to Precision Scoped Rifle vs. Intro Assault Rifle)
- Classroom handouts are provided electronically which let me decide if trees should die for further reading.
