“Your classes and staff never fail to disappoint.”

If you could pass this email on to Anthony and John I would appreciate it. I took the holster draw class tonight, and John was a great instructor. As usual, safety was paramount and he was a wealth of knowledge and took the time with each of us to help us out with the little things. I’ve been a member at Woodland Park Gun For Hire since you opened and your classes and staff never fail to disappoint. You guys are a class-act… thanks again and looking forward to my next class.

Instructor Bios:

All of our high-level courses are taught by experienced professionals with the credentials to prove it. They are all trained and certified by the N.J. Police Training Commission, N.J. Department of Criminal Justice, and possess Federal Law Enforcement Instructor Certifications. They are experts in N.J. Use of Force Policies, and are always updating the course material with the latest use of force guidelines and case law. At Gun For Hire, this is not a “hobby”, but a full-time, legitimate vocation. Any “instructor” can teach you something, but only a select few can teach you the “why” or the “root of law” to justify your actions. If you were to use your newly acquired skills and were required to justify your actions, Gun For Hire instructors are ready, willing, and able to testify in your defense, as long as you had followed the training and procedures we provided. It does you, and your loved ones, no good if you survive the fight but have spend the next thirty years in prison because of the wrong advice you were given by a part-time amateur “instructor”.
