General Comments

I enjoyed this course so much that I'm already looking forward to going back. I enjoyed meeting people from different states, the staff was awesome and course itself was FUN.

Did you go through the shoot house? What were your thoughts about it?

I love the shoot house. It was one of the things I like the best.

Do you have any tips for first-time students of this course?

Tips I would suggest for first time students would be make sure you are prepared. Make sure you pack the right clothing (it was raining in a 40degree weather during our first day), and just have fun. Don't stress too much or you will make yourself miserable :) pay attention to the instructions! Make new friends

How would you improve this course?

To improve on this course I'm planning on practicing with dry practice and going to the range 

Would you suggest this course to others?

Yes I would definitely suggest this course to other people. In facts, I've already made suggestions and recommendations to my peers

Did you go with family or friends? If so, what did they think about the course?

My boyfriend went with me and he feels the same way.  He loved it! 

What did you do for your lunches?
