As a novice with firearms, this was a great way for my wife and I to learn how to operate a gun. They stress safety and it helped put us at ease that they have excellent military experience. We now feel a lot safer owning a firearm and confident if it ever needs to be used. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend TRB. (Yelp)

Testimonials

I highly recommend TRB. Ernie Medina is a retired Captain in the US Marine Corps and a graduate of the US Naval Academy. He is an expert shooter and was an instructor and trainer in the corps, as well. There is no one else I can think of that is more experienced than Ernie in teaching how to safely handle and store a firearm and no one I would trust more in teaching a novice like me how to shoot. I highly recommend him. The opening of his business is extremely timely, especially in this crazy world we live in! There is no better time to learn how to defend yourself and this is the place to do it!

I had been thinking about getting professional firearms training for a long time when I came across TRB's Instagram page. I met with Ernie and we talked about my firearm experience and what I was looking to accomplish. He was very thorough with explaining all the different levels of training packages he offered and then made a recommendation based off of what we discussed. Ernie and his team were very patient and professional during my entire training. Ernie was very thorough and attentive in making sure I was doing everything safely and correctly at all times. I highly recommend TRB for any and all your firearms training needs.

Best in Class!

Testimonials
★★★★★
As a life-long learner of martial arts and firearms enthusiast who has rekindled a passion for shooting after nearly 40 years away, I value the quality and expertise of the training provided by Ernie and the support team. I live in Atlanta, and felt it important enough to seek out the best instruction I could for my path. So much so that I organized some training in Atlanta and brought Ernie in to share with my friends and family. We were not disappointed (well, if you can classify that the training had to come to an end, then, maybe we were!) in the sense of accomplishment, confidence and competence that we all walked away with. We had both novice and advanced shooters in the mix, and all felt equally attended to. This is a testament to Ernie's ability to lead and read a group of disparate skill levels and address each of their needs accordingly. I can't say enough about how wonderful and proficient the training was. Looking forward to the next opportunity to learn from Ernie!

I don't like guns... (Yelp)

Testimonials
★★★★★
If you are considering learning how to safely operate and own a firearm - whether for recreational use or home protection - then the 'Fully Loaded" Experience is right for you. Being a competent practitioner does not always translate to being a effective instructor, but Ernie is exceptional in both his knowledge of firearms training and his ability to educate. He has a talent for identifying parallels in the learner's personal experience to promote understanding and retention of the concepts. I don't like guns... I think the world would be a better place without them. However, that is not the world we live in and my desire to protect my home and my family supersedes my personal feelings about firearms. Ernie was receptive to my apprehension and modified the instruction accordingly. Within an hour at the range, I was more comfortable and confident with the firearm, and the experience change from anxious to enjoyable. I also really appreciated that Ernie was thorough and deliberate in communicating proper etiquette and protocol at the range. The only other time I used a firearm was at a range 15 years ago and it was not a good experience to be rebuked for not knowing the finer points of conduct. Ernie never made me feel rushed even though I am sure the time exceeded the typical allotment. After just one visit, I feel confident to practice on my own at the range without the appearance of a complete novice.

I've had in-home training and I've also taken a two-day course with these guys. Highly recommended for individuals and/or couples if you want to take your home & self-defense seriously. Ernie, chief instructor and company owner is professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. This is the guy you want teaching you this stuff! Ernie and the team take this teaching very seriously, but make it a fun and enjoyable process. I cannot speak highly enough of these guys and my experiences with them. Please give them a shot (see what I did there?:). -Enjoy!
