I must say that this was a great experience for me. I had never shot a gun in my life, but as a woman, I felt that it was important for me to finally take the time to learn for self-defense purposes. By the end of the day, I had passed both tests (written and shooting) in order to have a carry permit! I know that there is much more to learn about gun safety, and I want to continue my relationship with Austin Tennessee Firearms. I highly recommend this school!
