Having been an active recreational shooter over the past 30 years, I thought I had a handle on the fundamentals of shooting, safety, and proper handling technique. My first VALIDUS course taught me that I was mistaken. I am 4 courses into the VALIDUS Training Program, and still learning. However, I am already a more competent recreational and tactical shooter, and finally confident with Concealed Carry (CCW) thanks to the VALIDUS training methodology.

I have been teaching and speaking on leadership for about 10 years and I want to say that I consider Ron Gasper to be one of the best teachers I have ever seen. He used a great balance of humor and seriousness and knew the different learning styles and was very effective at using all of the appropriate methods of teaching. Ron is also great relationally and he engaged well with each of us personally. I want to thank Ron for treating my 17 year old son with respect and not dismissing him because of his age! Both of us will definitely continue our training with Ron.

I took a CCW Course and a few other shooting courses at another school before attending the VALIDUS Handgun Fundamentals Course (HFC). There is no comparison! From there, I moved into the VALIDUS Concealed Handgun Courses program (CHC-Levels I-III). The VALIDUS curriculum breaks down and teaches the fundamentals in a way that lets you practice and improve skills between courses. I get more out of my own practice time on the range, and improve faster as a result. And, if you have a strong fundamental base, the advanced techniques are that much easier to master.
