“I was very pleased with the AR-15 class and the excellent job that Jesse did. I have had the opportunity to participate in other classes conducted by Jesse, of which were just as professionally done as this one. Jesse started out by telling everyone what was going to be covered during the class so there were no surprises. A hands-on approach was used during the class as well as encouraging everyone to ask questions regardless of how simple it may sound once we heard the answer. Above all Jesse kept the class interesting and fun. I came to the class with very little working knowledge of the AR-15, however after Jesse’s excellent explanations of how, what and why something should be done, I came away feeling very confident and with also knowing that if a question should appear I know where to come to get the answer. He also showed us many applications that could be added to the AR-15 such as scopes, recoil pads, lights and gun cases along with their features and benefits. Most important,  Jesse explained how these items can be purchased and ordered through Point Blank Range which is a great feature for someone like me. Thanks again to Jesse and your entire team at Point Blank Range.”
