Tina works hard to keep the classes fun. She says, “It shouldn’t be like traffic school”.  But safety is the founding principle. This is serious business. You will learn to handle a gun, which can be deadly without good training. You must have the emotional maturity to be serious about firearms training. If so,  students of any age are welcome.  But if you do not have the right attitude for safe gun handling, you will not advance and you should not carry a gun.

Tina is a frequent guest on the Sportsman of Colorado Radio Show, Saturday mornings from 7:00 am to 8:00 am on 560 AM The Source .
