A group of my colleagues and I took the class together. Gordon and Brandy are very knowledgeable about shooting and gun safety. They were wonderful about answering all of our questions. We all completed the course successfully, though it was the first time shooting for a few of us. We enjoyed our experience!

The class was very informational. Would recommend to anyone. Would have paid full price for the class if I didnt buy it on groupon. Pay very close attention to the instructors and their safety tips.

I attended the concealed/open carry class this weekend. I had a excellent experience! Both Brandy and Gordon Holland are extremely knowledgeable about the laws in Tennessee regarding concealed and open carry. I highly recommend them!

By the way! Their responses to bad reviews are correct. The DID provide multiple emails with very DETAILED times, directions, and instructions. They were very PROMPT in replying to any questions and the class was top notch. Those that went to the wrong location - that's on you because you can't read. DHSA gave VERY DETAILED INSTRUCTIONS to every registered attendee. You are the only one to blame. Not DHSA.

Gordon and Brandy Holland at Direct Hit Shooting Academy are the best. You can't do any better at any other concealed carry class. They keep you informed every step of the way and provide all of the necessary information in a way that a beginner or even an experienced shooter can benefit. Safety is top priority. They make sure that you understand completely so that you will feel comfortable and confident while you learn. I'm glad I took my training at Direct Hit. They are very thorough and professional. They will prepare you to be a responsible and conscientious concealed weapon carrier. YOU CAN'T MISS WITH "DIRECT HIT"!
