    I know there are those out there that still have safety concerns with this type of training. Having taken the ol’ CRCD course I can add to those who compliment Max and his team on the focus on safety they bring to these courses. If my and many others affirmations of the safety factor are not convincing a quick run of some numbers will tell you that well over ONE MILLION ROUNDS have been fired down range since Max started this training without a single injury from gun fire.

    That my fellow patriots is a testament in and of itself.
