Garrett & Reese, I have taken CCW courses in several states and I am also a firearms instructor. I just wanted to let you know that your class is one of the best that I have attended.

Both instructors Garrett Peddicord and Reese Stanley were not only professional, but were able to present the needed material in a manner that is easy to understand. Nebraska has some vague concealed carry laws and this course did a great job in explaining them.

The USCCA should take great pride in having instructors of this caliber. I want to thank Instructor Peddicord for his hospitality, the snacks and pizza was a welcome personal touch. Both instructors went above and beyond. For anyone considering carrying a concealed firearm, I highly recommend taking the class through USCCA and NebraskaPersonalDefense.com.

I attended/graduated from the 10 December 2017 Concealed Carry Weapons class. I was very impressed with the high caliber, multi-media presentation and information provided throughout that afternoon. 

I specifically selected this class because of the fact that Garrett Peddicord and Reese Weston Stanley are active duty members; I felt it would be easier for me to relate to this important subject matter because of their unique perspective and special training they obtained from the military. I was dead on. 

I was extremely impressed with the entire class and especially with the professionalism and knowledge of both Reese and Garrett. As a Retired USAF SMSgt, I was also very proud of these two warriors. They were professional, polite and they both mastered their subject matter. I also must compliment them on their decision to share their skill and talents with the community; through their efforts, individuals and families are becoming safer and better protected. I am so glad I attended their class.
