    What a great class! Very personable and informative. As a beginner into the world of shooting, you took the time that I needed in order for me to understand all the information.

  • Doug says:

    I agree! The instructor is very experienced in teaching people who have no experience with firearms and making them immediately comfortable learning about, and handling handguns. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of firearms and presents the material in a fun and understandable way. The instructor teaches the pros and the newbies and totally relates to all students. The School’s classroom is very comfortable and very convenient from the Baltimore Beltway. A great place to learn.

    I want to start this review by stating very clearly that I would not have considered myself a “gun person” before meeting Mr. Larry McClain. I took his HQL course to learn more about home protection and I was not disappointed. Mr. McClain is approachable, thorough, and very detail-oriented. Most importantly, he showed me how to appreciate gun ownership and use as a sport and a hobby rather than as a means of doing damage to someone or something – this made the whole process so much more comfortable. Larry takes his job very seriously, and in my opinion he should. Since my HQL class I have met with him several other times and each time I learn more and more about responsible gun ownership. I have no doubt that I will continue to learn from him in the future.

    I am a 75 year young grand mother. My husband is no longer with us and I needed to know how to protect myself in my home. Larry offered advice on making my home harder for the burglars. He also taught me how to shoot a revolver. He showed me the other gun, but I couldn’t load it without pain in my fingers. I have arthritis and the easy gun was my choice. He is the most patient person I have ever met. You won’t be disappointed in his instruction. Very likable!

    When I first learned that an 8 hour course was required to renew my handgun permit, my heart sank and my blood pressure rose. More nonsensical loops for honest people to jump through, among other dark thoughts.

    To my delight your course was interesting, practical and valuable. Your approach gave me new insights into the realities and responsibilities of carrying a gun in public, plus a lot of valuable tips and information. Thank you again for all your help, I’ll be back for more instruction!

    Sincerely,
    Gordon, DDS

    Larry is a true professional. He was very patient with a complete beginner(myself), and still able to engage my husband, who is an advanced handgun user. I learned a lot, my husband even learned some new things, and Larry made earning my MD handgun license a joy. I am definitely planning on signing up for more advanced courses in the future! Thank you for offering your services to the public, Larry. You are wonderful at what you do.

    I took the HQL course last weekend and I’m glad that I did! The class was informative and structured but at the same time it was relaxed and fun. I look forward to learning more from Larry in the future.

    I really didn’t want to post this, but Larry is worth the effort. I am a correctional officer and I must qualify on my weapon once per year. I really don’t like shooting, and when qual’s came up i was sick at my stomach. Larry helped me through the shooting aspect, but also enlightened me to the fact guns are for sport. Practicing and making it fun, took the stress off. Thank you Larry!
