Here’s what recent class participants had to say about their Texas CHL class experience:
“Good balance of information, provided important information throughout. Not boring”
- Clark L., November 2014
“Informative and a pleasure. Would recommend the class for any new or seasoned gun owner.”
- Jason W., September 2014
“Mark has a very easy way of presenting a very complicated and important class.”
– Mickey F. August 2014
“Mark does a really good job of conveying information from a citizen’s perspective, with enough humor and diversity to keep the audience engaged.”
- Anonymous February 2014
“I discovered Mark’s class by accident,but I’m glad I did. I had taken a CHL class several years ago and was expecting a similar experience, but I could not have been more wrong. Mark’s class is excellent. He presents all material as it can be applied to real world situations. He is an excellent instructor. Classroom and shooting range experiences were topnotch. All material presented was relevant and stayed on-point. Classroom or shooting range, Mark puts the student at ease. I have no doubt be has to be the best CHL instructor in the DFW area.”

I thought the CHL class I took 6 years ago was good, but Mark’s class went above and beyond with his information and attention to detail. I learned so much more than I ever expected. Awesome job!

I can’t recommend Southlake CHL enougn, especially for women who want to carry but are not sure if it is right for them. Mark makes the whole process very comfortable and not intimidating at all.
