 ICE Training, 07-14-2022

By: Michael Stappler

Ron runs professional thorough training. He teaches the course material very well, but he speaks in plain language and includes practical information that makes common sense as well. I have been shooting recreationally for a long time; I learned alot of valuable information in the classes and Ron and Shawn gave insight during range qualifications that will help improve skills, accuracy, and mechanics. I went through 2 instructor training certifications and they stress Safety, Safety, Safety. That is important to me. I recommend Ron and Shawn if you want to build your base of knowledge, skills and mechanics.

I took their Range Safety Office class, and I loved it.
The teacher was helpful, knowledgeable, and patient.

Ron was always available and helpful even when I had to cancel and reschedule for COVID.
He always answered the phone for me and spent time explaining things.
If you need to take a class, this is the place to g.
I will certainly go back.

I recently took the RSO class. Ron is a very effective teacher and a truly good guy! He made the class interesting and informative. I would not hesitate to take additional classes from Ron in the future.

 Awesome Experience, 07-06-2022

By: Duane P

I enjoy taking classes with Mr. David and his staff. There is no value I can place on the information I receive when attending class with them. The experience I gain not only helps me but as an instructor it helps my students.

 Best training ever, 06-29-2022

By: Satina Pearce

Ron was amazing. I loved this training it was so welcoming, professional & great hospitality. Lots of information and very beneficial. I left with all the information to be confident for wear and carry. I even had the chance to meet his lovely wife and his handsome grandson who became my friend. I couldn’t ask for better experience. I look forward to taking my next class with I.C.E Firearms & Defensive Training.
