Since I began taking courses with VATA Group I have seen my skill and proficiency with firearms and my development of a safety mindset increase dramatically. The instructors are top notch and spend plenty of time with each student to ensure that they learn in the classes, while also enjoying themselves in the process - I highly recommend them.
VATA offers a wide variety of firearms and related classes that are suitable for people of any age or gender. The more advanced courses offer a suitable level of challenge for almost anyone, including us more mature (old) guys. The cost of the classes is extremely reasonable given the amount of useful information presented. The "do what you are able to do given your age and physical condition" attitude is much appreciated. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable. There is evil in the world and you never know when or where you might meet it. Even for those people who are not gun guys/gals should highly consider taking the Tactical Medicine class. You are much more likely to be involved in a home or car accident than to be involved in a gun fight. I have trained a number of places. VATA ranks up there with the best of them. Keep up the good work. I will continue to attend your classes.
This was a great course. Even with prior training and experience, I still learned a lot and did more practical application on the pistol than any training I have ever done. I look forward to completing future classes and even completing Pistol I again. GREAT JOB FELLOWS!
This was an exceptional learning experience. This one-day course more than exceeded my expectations. The knowledge shown to me greatly improved my accuracy, pistol grip & stance. I will be back & will recommend VATA to everyone. All of you gusy are professional and it showed. I was not disappointed! Thank you!
Instructors were extremely intuitive and know exactly how to break down the fundamentals in a way that was easy for me to understand and then improve.
This weekend of firearms training has been nothing short of amazing. Between learning the fundamentals of shooting to being introduced to more complex and advanced techniques, I had the honor of learning from top-notch professionals and surrounded by nice shooters. Thanks for the course. I'm signing up for more!
Thanks for providing a safe environment for learning. Great job. Your patience with us is appreciated and exceeded my expectations.
