I traveled from Houston to take the Advanced Combat Pistol - Level I course this past weekend with a group of friends, including one who had previously taken both this and other training courses offered by TDSA. Before attending, I felt that I was fairly proficient with a pistol. For anyone reading this testimonial that feels the same, do yourself a favor and take this course. I now know there are several holes in my training and bad habits I need to break, but I definitely left with the tools I need to begin filling in those gaps. Whether you’re a novice or experienced, you will walk away a more consistent, accurate, and faster shooter. If anyone claims they took this course without learning anything, they are either lying or stupid, and probably both.

The TDSA instructors are what really sets this course apart. I cannot overemphasize how impressed I was with their level of expertise, professionalism and attitude. Attendees included people with a wide range of experience, from new shooters to police officers, and even another firearms instructor. Everyone was welcomed and treated with respect, regardless of ability. You will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with each instructor multiple times throughout the course to practice and reinforce the fundamentals of what you’re learning. Despite the fact the instructors are incredibly skilled, they were never dismissive or condescending. I am very much a Type A personality, and I tend to struggle when I do not improve as quickly as I think I should (i.e., always), so it takes a special kind of patient to work with me. What resonated with me the most was how positive and encouraging the instructors were throughout the training, pushing you to become the caliber of shooter they honestly believe you can be while giving you the instruction and tools you need to achieve it. They work extremely hard to the keep the instruction conversational and fun, mixing in humor with visual demonstrations, so it never feels like you are being lectured.

To Marshall, Kai, Sam, Brian and Shane, thank you for putting on such an outstanding training course, and I look forward to taking more from you in the future.

I have 7 years in law enforcement and have been around guns/shooting them for 20 years. I get at least 16 hours of department firearms training every year and considered myself a top 10% shooter at every range day among my peers prior to this training. Even with all this training/life experiences, I was grossly unqualified in comparison to the TDSA AP 1 training curriculum. Even more interesting was what this training does for non-leo civilians. At the end of the training, there were several that were shooting lightyears ahead of where I started and many that actually were able to apply the TDSA training better! Whether you're a current/past LEO or just a civilian, I promise you will walk away from this training a better shooter. How much better? Try shooting 10 shots at an 18" piece of steel at 65yards with iron sights and if you miss a single one, you will benefit from this course. Before I took this course, I heard about this "test" and never EVER thought I could do this. After only completing day 1 of the two day course, this was SIMPLE.

If you're reading this, you're already mildly interested in advancing your skills. Make a decision, take this training, and better yourself. The money this costs is pocket change compared to what you will gain. Also, every single instructor was simply outstanding.
Everyone, at some point in their life, has been belittled or felt put down by instructors during training/learning... Not here. This is a realistic learning environment. You will be called out in a proper manner on what needs addressed and FIXED. If you can't accept that, put your guns away and call someone else who was willing to accept that they weren't perfect and were willing to LEARN.

Make the decision that will only help save your life.

Marshall and crew, thank you.

I have been shooting for the past 30 years. I started with my grandfather in the backyard, then joined the Navy and received basic firearms familiarization. I subsequently joined the Security Force for a base in the Pacific Northwest and received advanced training in small arms, squad tactics, and basic police procedures. After leaving the Navy I worked in training environments with the Department of Homeland Security in simunition exercises. The Advanced Tactical Pistol course from TDSA is by far the best training I have ever received! They examined my technique and provided feedback on what they saw and how I could improve. They expanded on good habits and carefully explain why my bad habits were unproductive and dangerous, using scientific methodology and practical experience from their real world application of better techniques. Each stage of training built upon the previous stage in a clear and consistent way. The most significant differentiator between the TDSA instructors and every other course I have been through is their approach to the students and material. Each individual on their team could, and do, perform at a world class level but approach each student, lesson, and scenario with humor and humility. At no point was any student told "because I say so", each question was answered carefully with data. Most importantly, after each answer every instructor asked if the student had any new data or insight that the instructor could learn from or modify their viewpoint. This team is humble, genuine, sincere, and hilarious! My final observation is the environment of safety was engendered on day one and reenforced constantly. This was done not by screaming at the class about safety but rather by instilling a sense of mutual accountability based on professionalism. We were all there learn from the instructors and each other in a safe environment that we created together. At no point during the two day course with thirty people roaming around with firearms did I feel unsafe or endangered. If you take one firearm course in your life, take Advanced Tactical Pistol from TDSA.

New to pistols, I was looking for a course that would provide a level of confidence in safety and handling as well as a proficiency in shooting. I had only shot 150 rounds through a pistol prior to this class, and I was unsure if this two-day Advanced Combat Pistol I course was the correct place for me. When I showed up I saw the full range of students – police, another instructor, repeat students, enthusiasts, and people like myself who were untrained and new to pistols. I immediately saw why the course was so appealing to such a wide range of students. This course, through its structured method of teaching, starts with the basics and builds upon those skills. The instructors taught it, demonstrated it and then with a 6:1 student to instructor ratio they provided range instruction to each student based upon their individual level. They were never in a hurry and they were dedicated to making certain every student understood the lesson – I even noted they modified their instructional styles on the range to get the most out of each individual student. The instructors are extremely qualified, and they will significantly elevate your comfort, confidence and knowledge – all you have to do is be open to instruction and willing to try something new. This course was such a tremendous experience.

As always TDSA creates a strict, but the safest firearm training environment possible. The instructors are second to none, with a broad assortment of techniques to aid in the development of the individual. ACP 2 was the second class I've taken with them, but will not be the last!
