What are people saying about the 1 Day Defensive Handgun class?

This review is for the Defensive Pistol class and Instructor Daniel Richardson.  Last year, after months of self-training based on books and internet videos, I took the Defensive Pistol class for the first time.  I say “first time” because I continue to sign up for the course and retake it just for the trigger time and chance to work on fundamentals.  Additionally, it’s just plain fun.  The class continues to evolve and stay interesting, and it really provides a great introduction to the basics of defensive pistol:  Weapon deployment, movement, reloads, marksmanship, malfunction drills and barricade work to name a few.  Point Blank has now added companion workshops to this class, and this is a very cost-effective way to get repetitions on the basics. Daniel is an outstanding instructor and really pays attention to the smallest details.  These details are what increases speed and accuracy, and have made me a better shooter.  He also has the ability to assess and manage his class so that everyone gets the right level of challenge and stress, regardless of your age, experience level, gender, or physical capabilities.  I highly recommend Daniel as an instructor and the Defensive Pistol class in general.
