Dave is an ideal instructor for folks of all skill levels. I'm a guy who is a complete handgun novice, but Dave made me feel perfectly comfortable and encouraged me throughout all stages of the course. He accommodated my beginner-level questions and concerns, but he was also able to fully and competently field (like a pro) the advanced questions raised by my more experienced friends who took the course with me. One of those friends is ex-law enforcement, and I know he was impressed and completely satisfied with Dave's awesome instruction and knowledge. My friend's wife also participated, and I know she was comfortable, had a great time, and learned a lot. From the get-go, Dave was easy to talk to and provided great flexibility in scheduling the course. During the class, Dave was friendly, courteous, and easy-going, but also professional, competent, and adaptable to different learning styles. Dave is just a great guy - his passion for (and expertise at) what he does, his attentiveness to each individual's needs, and his sincere encouragement have made me much more confident and motivated to become a more knowledgeable, skilled, and responsible gun-owner. Dave even offered to take me gun shopping, and he routinely makes himself available to answer questions and to help this newbie out. I really couldn't have had a better experience.

Dave, I have to tell you I'm impressed and I'm not easily impressed. Frankly, so was my crew. As the owner of a company that sends sales people and service providers into all areas of metro New Orleans day and night, I have to thank you for our concealed handgun permit course. Thank you for making us feel safer at a time when most people are constantly looking over their shoulders. Now my employees are empowered to protect themselves. Not just by carrying concealed weapons, but knowing how to use them...or maybe more importantly, knowing when NOT to. The lessons you taught about using awareness as self defense and avoiding confrontation were invaluable. You were the consumate professional, an effective teacher and attentive instructor. The fact that you came to our offices to conduct the classes made what could have been a real challenge so convenient. And, of course, everybody's favorite part of the course, meeting you at the gun range for the final stages of qualifications. You created such a sense of team, yet were so attentive to some of us who needed careful instruction. I will recommend Concealed Carry NOLA to all my associates, friends and family. You made it easy and enjoyable, Dave. And, those of us who are not outdoorsmen were especially appreciative of your patience. Sincerely, Andre
“David is an excellent instructor. He was extremely thorough with all aspects of his “one on one” course. He is able to share his knowledge in a way that is very intuitive and easy to understand, which made retention of the information effortless. I had not handled a firearm in approximately fifteen years; so needless to say, I was initially hesitant and lacking confidence with respect to operating the firearm safely and effectively. David’s instruction was extremely effective with providing the correct amount of knowledge, skill, and general attitude instruction. This training elevated my confidence and ultimately provided me the ability to properly and safely own and operate firearms for self-defense. In addition, my interest in the sport of shooting has increased exponentially. I highly recommend David and Concealed Carry NOLA to everyone that is looking to get involved with the sport of shooting or owning firearms for self-defense” Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity
