" I want to tell you how much I enjoyed the classes this weekend and that I learned more than I probably could process! As an instructor (voice/music) myself I was very impressed with how the class was taught, the constant and careful supervision at all times, and that each of the staff were personable, charming and fun! I know nothing yet about firearms and am working to remedy that, but no one made me feel stupid or disrespected when I made rookie and inexperienced mistakes. In all a terrific experience at your range!" - L. A.
"I have never taken a firearms class before, and was concerned that being in my mid 50's, I would be "out of place" in my ability to keep up and learn to shoot properly and safely.
You and both of your instructors helped me to become a safer and more proficient shooter.
All of you were very effective teachers- Even while correcting my errors, you all knew how to challenge me to perform better, and even encourage me. I appreciate that a lot!" - M. M.
"The CHL renewal class at Schaefer Academy last Saturday was fantastic and Tom was a great instructor. I found myself wishing that I had taken the initial class with Tom because the renewal class was so good. I will refer more students to KR in the future!" - Bryan O.
"Showing up and participating at less than 100% (I was ill) was certainly eyeopening, not to mention a blow to my ego. I assumed I would perform a lot better than I did. The notion that an attack may come when one is tired and weak took on new gravity yesterday. I know I have a long way to go before I can perform at the level I'd like, but your training has provided me the tools to get on the right path. You can definitely count on me being back at your facility for more. Thank you!" - E.O.
"The Defensive Pistol Skills class yesterday was great. I've had a CHL license for about 8 years but never carried because I did not feel adequately prepared, now I do." - L.C.
"You and your team are running a great program…you are dispensing a great deal of usable information in a very short period of time and, doing it safely. And, that combination is not always easy to achieve. " - S.S.
"I've spent the last 6 months getting back into owning and shooting firearms after a 2-year period of complacency in Austin. During these six months I have attended firearms training at 4 schools in the local area, all in the effort to identify the best training curriculum and instructors in the local area. Just want you to know that KR Training is the best that I've found so far, and I'll be looking to attend other training classes with you in the future. " P.N.
"It’s great having a world-class shooting school right here in Central Texas! Karl is a good instructor, and I’ve learned a lot from him -- including how to draw from concealment while keeping a constant toe count." R.A.
"Thank you for an excellent, well-run CHL Renewal Class. My wife has never liked tests of any kind, so she was quite apprehensive. However, it was apparent you've run into that situation before, and your presentation put her at ease. Overall, we felt like we'd spent a day in the country, learned/refreshed our knowledge base, and enjoyed the company of other CHLers. The A/C and padded chairs helped, too. :-) - T.S.
"I have many friends that do their classes much closer to where they live, and I have places closer as well, but I will be lobbying for them to come to you guys as I did - it was just really well taught and the attitude and execution is very good on everything. I have spent the evening discussing with my wife and kids (who do not have CHL but encourage me to buy more guns) the changes to recent laws and what you can do and what you can't do." - R.W.
