"Spartan Defense did an outstanding job in teaching their concealed handgun class that I attended. I not only learned the necessary classroom requirements as per the law, but my instructor, Teddy Collins, also shared a lot of valuable information that I found very beneficial regarding how to handle specific life threatening situations. His many years of training and firearms experience made the all-day class enjoyable and educational. I highly recommend the Spartan Defense course to anyone who wishes to take personal responsibility for the safety of their family, home or business.” --- Texas State Representative Raul Torres Matthew Wesson : What a fantastic course! Well thought out and extremely comprehensive. This is the ONLY NRA approved class in the area and it shows. Plenty of time for questions and the instructor is very knowledgeable. I researched all the classes in the area and based on the instructors accredidations and the NRA approval, I chose this one, and I was not disappointed. Very glad I took this class over any others...thank you. JARROD OLDHAM : I couldn't have asked for a better experience in a CHL class. Teddy, the instructor, was the consummate professional at all times while keeping the material engaging and entertaining. I would recommend this class to any of my friends or associates without reservation.
