“I had the opportunity to attend the first Care and Cleaning Handgun Class conducted by Morey this past Tuesday evening ( 4-16-13). I have always been very impressed with the knowledge that Morey has regarding handgun, rifles, shotguns, etc., but during the class Tuesday evening he truly went far and beyond my expectations. His explanations concerning how to clean and care for the different fire arms were outstanding. Everyone in the class watched in amazement as to how he handled each gun with ease, while going through every part and making it appear so simple that even someone like me could do it. I truly felt much better as to the proper care that my gun needs in the future.”
