I was so honored to attend the Advanced Combat Pistol Level 2 this past weekend with TDSA. My first training with TDSA was back in April of 2013 when I made the decision to take API to become a better shooter. Marshall and his instructors not only made me a better shooter(42% improvement) but, helped me become a confident gun owner!

If you carry a gun and you never had any training other than going to the range for some “Lead Therapy” occasionally, you are setting yourself up to become a statistic! I hear so many people say, “I dont have that kind of money for training.” REALLY??? How do you put a price on your life or your loved one’s life? The world is a dangerous place! Stop thinking it will never happen to you!

Signing up for these types of classes can be intimidating if you are a new shooter or maybe you think you’re going to be embarrassed. Trust me, I’m 5’ 1.5” tall and 115lb female. I never imagined I would be at the level I am today! I promise you, the instructors are VERY welcoming and you will kick yourself for not taking their classes sooner! I will continue to take API every year to maintain my skills I have learned from TDSA.

THANK YOU Marshall and Billy for the most amazing training weekend!

I attended the Ladies Intro to Pistol class on Sat Sept 15. Marshall opened the class in a classroom setting. We talked through several situations – the “What if?”. It is so important to discuss what you might do in a situation rather than to have to think on your feet when a situation is placed in your lap. Marshall encouraged us to use our most valuable tool – our brain – in EVERY situation. If your intuition tells you that something is wrong, it is perfectly fine to retreat and rethink.

We talked through the reasons that people are attacked. We talked through how to manage unknown contacts. We talked through how to diffuse a situation. It is important to understand each case to ensure that you remain situationally aware and able to confidently and calmly react if a situation arises. Lastly, we talked about what to look for in pre-assault indicators. Once again, it is important to always be monitoring your environment to ensure that you pick up on the queues to avoid a confrontation.

All this information was extremely informative with the goal of avoiding a confrontation that leads you to draw your firearm. However, we can’t stop there because we MUST be prepared to be the “Sheep Dog”. I am a doer and I want to be prepared to protect those around me if I find myself in a situation that calls for action.

At this point, while still in the classroom, we reviewed the components of a semi-automatic pistol and a revolver. We talked at length about safety. We discussed how to safely load and unload the pistol and we talked about the fundamentals of marksmanship. Now, we were ready to go to the range. But, wait…one more thing…

Marshall lined us up with an opportunity to dryfire with the CoolFire training system. This allowed us to begin dry firing and still feel the sensation of the recoil. We could use the techniques that we just learned while still in the less stressful environment of the classroom! The trainers were able to assist us with the fundamentals of marksmanship before heading to the heat on the range!!!!

Once on the range, we were once again briefed on safety. It is very clear that Marshall means business when it comes to safety. Everyone knew the rules and followed the guidelines to ensure a safe and fun day. We were afforded the opportunity to shoot a variety of pistols. I took the opportunity to shoot a few but ultimately tried to spend most of my time getting proficient with my pistol. The trainers were constantly walking up and down the line to provide support, coaching and encouragement to each of the students.

As the day was ending, Marshall pulled out a couple of long guns that he gave us the opportunity to shoot! It was a cool treat to be able to shoot his AR-15!!!! Wow, the trigger on that rifle was amazing!!!!

In summary, this course was extremely valuable and informative. Marshall kept the lecture engaging. The material was presented in a way that allowed everyone to grasp the concepts and he was able to answer any questions that came up along the way. There is no substitute for training. To be a Sheep Dog, you must be trained!!!! I highly recommend this course and I look forward to future days on the range and additional courses to continue my training.

This is my 2nd time taking the Intro to Firearms class. Each time I’ve taken this class, I’ve walked away feeling more confident handling my firearm. The time and effort that Marshall puts into teaching is immeasurable. He is very patient with us too. All of the instructors at TDSA are fabulous!! Taking classes here and learning from the best is WOTH EVERY DOLLAR!! Thank you.

An excellent investment in time and money. The TDSA instructors, Marshall, Billy and Cowboy, are highly skilled coaches. The two day class is broken down into small bites. Each skill is first introduced in class time (casual and fun) followed immediately with hands on practice under the watchful eye(s) of the instructors. Knowing how and actually doing are two different skill sets and having honest feed back and direction from three instructors is of great value. They each offer a unique insight to coaching you to become a better shooter.
Thanks guys

I’m glad I took ACP I with Marshall and the team at TDSA. The attention to detail and the professional teaching/coaching is certainly appreciated.

I was unable to attend the second day of this class, but Marshall was very accommodating.

The information in this course benefits me as a shooter and as a newbie instructor (NRA & SDA certified). The trainers at TDSA give helpful one-on-one instruction and strive to make the whole experience an enjoyable one.
