    We took the class with Kevin Mattakat in Woodville last Sunday. Kevin was very knowledgeable and the material was interesting. Wisconsin was a refresher as we already have our WI conceal carry; but taking a refresher is very beneficial. Minnesota was new for us. Very interesting!! Thank you.

    Jay instructed our course last weekend. I had been wanting to take this course for years but just never did. After going through it I wish I had done this years ago!! Jay kept it interesting and kept us all awake and aware even on a Saturday morning! ;) I learned a lot from Jay and loved his sense of humor!! I’m anxious now to go practice practice practice and then go shopping, shopping and more shopping!! I felt that Jay totally respects and has patience for us females who have never handled and hand gun before and he made it a blast!! I highly recommend this course to all my female friends!!! Thanks Jay!!! Well worth the money!!!

    My name is Rhonda Zielske. I took the course for the permit to carry and conceal on 6/10/2017. I believe I was the most nervous and scared and shaking while shooting. Our instructor was Jay. Thank you Jay for helping me to face one of my fears. It felt like you knew what to say to me to keep shooting and not give up. God Bless You and Yours. My goal is to continue practicing like you taught us. I WILL become proficient and confident. Thanks to you.

    Bobby was a Great instructor, he is very knowledgeable and answered all our questions in the April 22, 2017 class. He took his time and was very patient with the class. In the near future I would be interested in the Practical Pistol Skills Level 1 Class which I think everyone should take.

    I just finished my second part with Chandlers. first I took the conceal carry and now the level 1 practical pistol skills. again was not disappointed.If you think you know a lot about carring a pistol or handling yourself with one try the level 1 course and you will learn alot.
    We also shot a lot of ammo it was truly a great day again.

    The class was OK and the instructor was good. This was my third time taking Permit to Carry. with three different people. I did feel however that the presentation materials were too short for first timers as far as the Four Pillars as you call them….the four essentials to be in place to have a valid self defense claim in MN. Had this been my first class I would have left bewildered. I think this deserves at least one third if not one half of all class time. In my opinion if a person does not fully understand that they have no business carrying a gun!

    Bobby was an exceptional instructor. This was my renewal class but I believe Iearned more this time than the first time. He offered practical examples with each section and then did a quick review of the information. Multiple times during the class he reviewed the 4 rules regarding gun safety and what you as a gun owner are entitled to do and not do in a fight or flight situation. Because of that teaching style, I was engaged the entire class. He also taught me a different way to hold my gun which allowed me more stability and better aim.

    Steve was fun and kept on topic using real world examples. Class was fun and he reiterated a ton of points that were used in the MN statutes. The small videos he had that were on the PowerPoint didn’t work but that was nothing to do with him being unprepared but to do with the venue’s security settings. All in all the range time was fun and he kept the topic of security and clearings fresh in our minds.

    I started this class as a small group the group grew and Chandlers accommodated us by getting us a place to have our class.We had 3 people for sure that had not much of a idea about the class or guns.Two of them were my family members before the class was over they were fully engaged in the class. by the time we left the range they were asking Chris questions on what they should do next Iam so pleased that their eyes have been opened to what is going on around us.I cant thank you enough. We will be planning on another course in the future.

My intention in taking the class was more for informational purposes.. but the class made me so comfortable and helped with reasons of why one may want to carry, I went and applied for my permit to carry this morning. Looking forward to getting out on the range, practicing, and some additional classes. Thanks Chris!!

    The class was really well taught. I only wish there was something more that could be taught for those re-applying. I know it’s not Chandler’s fault. I would encourage everyone who has taken a class to practice with their carry weapon as much as they can afford to and continue to hone your knowledge about carrying. If one of us goes out and does something bad or sloppy it reflects on us all.

    Being a conceal carry holder who just moved from Colorado back to Wisconsin, I can’t begin to tell you the knowledge I received from this class. It was extremely eye opening, I had taken a class in Colorado and thought I was taught everything I needed to know by my instructor. That was until I sat in a class room with Chris, WOW! I consider myself a very disciplined and knowledgeable permit holder, but the way the laws and the consequences of pulling that trigger were explained by Chris really hit home with me. Thank you for opening my eyes and I believe everyone else’s in the classroom. My wife and her sister will be taking the woman’s only class very soon. Thank you Chandlers.

    My husband and I took the course today instructed by Jay Rohlik. First off, he is one of the best instructors we have ever had the privilege of listening to. The class time just flew by and before we knew it, it was time to go to the Range. Now remember today was cold, very cold and I was not looking forward to shooting outside. We arrived at the Range, walked through snow, shot, and we were done. My husband took the course as a refresher as he is a retired State Trooper and knew I didn’t want to take the course alone. He throughly enjoyed it! Hopefully Jay is available in five years for my renewal. A very thankful senior citizen couple!

    Just went thru the CCW course on Sunday, 10/30 with Ryan. Needed to get a Minnesota permit because of a change in Minnesota law that revoked the reciprocity between Wisconsin and Minnesota.

    I attended the October 15th class in Austin.
    Our instructor was Ryan. I was very pleased with his wealth of knowledge and professionalism!
    He was very patient and answered every question very thoroughly.
    The two major areas of the class which are covered in great detail are safety and handgun laws. Ryan made sure we all were very clear on both. I had no idea how many nuances there were when it came to handgun laws. Every different action carries a different ramification.
    Ryan emphasized to only use your handgun If there is absolutely NO other reasonable alternative and what you should expect to happen even then.
    Chandler’s also offers a companion book that covers everything that is covered in class. I strongly recommend getting it. It is an invaluable resource!
    At the range, Ryan made sure you were relaxed and comfortable with your firearm.
    If you have other questions, you can call Chandler’s and they can answer any other questions you might have. Jamie is very friendly and knowledgeable.
    I highly recommend Chandler’s!!!

    This was my 3rd time taking a training class in the past 10 years. I decided I would try Chandler’s Firearms Training with Ryan McCusker. I am so glad I did. This class was very informative and down to earth for everyone. Our class had a mix of male and female students in all ages. Ryan did a great job of instruction and information. I learned more in this class then the others I have completed combined. This course could have easily been 2 hours longer without losing my interest.

    If you have any desire to carry a firearm I would recommend this course. You will walk out knowing your rights and feeling confident to carry.

    I was in the June 25th class with Don. We had some minor complications with the cooling system on a very hot day, Don handled everything very well. I learned a lot I did not learn at my first class. I was having trouble with a hurt shoulder and Don showed me how to hold my gun so it didn’t hurt to shoot. I thought I had to buy a new gun. I didn’t tell him, but the gun was one reason I got my conceal and carry in the first place. It was my Dads 357 and he has past away. Thank you Don! It is very dear to me.

It was well presented and Ryan kept it topical, on point, and interesting with his tremendous knowledge and endless enthusiasm. I really liked how he clearly explained the intricacy of the many laws governing conceal and carry. I also couldn’t believe how his recommendations to me on hand positioning improved my accuracy out on the range! I am already recommending Chandlers Conceal & Carry classes to all my friends. Thanks for an informative and fun day!

This was my 3rd time through this type of class and it was so superior in every way that I was delighted. Don Chandler was an exceptional instructor and that is after having had about 5-6 years of onsite Graduate Studies at number of universities. All aspects of the Course were excellent (structure, materials, presentation, and the enrollment which I believe Jamie handled from the home office.

    Chris teaches a great class! Legal factors in self-defense were particularly well handled, but no aspect of carry-permit training was neglected. It would be difficult indeed to pack more information into a single day’s training suitable for students of varied background and experience. If I had a criticism, it would be that several of the visual aids were hard to read.

    Ryan did a very nice job with the class. Good application of adult learning principles and practices. Kept things moving, appropriate classroom control,flawless use of media, etc.
    I may have missed him saying that he was using a ‘blue’ gun in class but in the rather dark room, it was difficult to know at first. The room at the Smoking’ Oak was a bit small and noisy, but it worked out well.
    I would have liked more hands on time at the range, but understand this is difficult with a group of 20. I guess I’ll just have to sign up for some instructor/range time to develop proper foundational skills and muscle memory.
    I’d make the book required reading and bump the price of the class to cover it.

    Ryan McCusker was an outstanding instructor in the Conceal and Carry class. The subject matter was intense, delivered by Ryan over an extended period of time, but no one wanted to miss a word of his information. There was much discussion during the breaks about the value and importance of his class, and I know we all left feeling the level of responsibility associated with carrying a concealed weapon, or any use of a gun to protect oneself and one’s family. To have an
    explanation of the laws pertaining to the use of firearms in self defense was so valuable to me since I have been looking at ways to protect myself and family in our somewhat remote location. Ryan handled the range exercise in a thoroughly professional
    manner and was polite and kind to the students. I feel so fortunate to have taken the class and to have had such an excellent instructor. Thank you, Chandler’s and thank you, Ryan.

    Michael Richardson did an OUTSTANDING job in the short amount of time he had. He did mention he thought the course should be longer and I totally agree, however, he also gave his cell number to us in the event of pertinent questions.

    Very professional, and very informative class!!

    I can not recommended this class high enough. Michel Richardson did a magnificent job in not only teaching a ton of information but also making it fun and interesting. Both Michel and Chris were a wealth of knowledge and experience who were more than happy to share with the rest of us. I will definitely be contacting Michel for further firearm instruction.

    My only gripe about the class was the location. The classroom was OK as long as someone wasn’t shooting in the adjoining indoor range. The real problem was the bathroom. There was only one and it was worse than a third world outhouse. I felt bad for the ladies that had to sit on that throne. This is an A+ class with outstanding instructors, it’s too bad it was in a C- location. I will definitely refer people to this class but I will suggest going to different location.

    Great job by Ryan made it very clear about responsibilities that go along with carrying a weapon. Range time could have been better. I am a strong backer of 2nd amendment rights, But some of the class members should have had more experience with a firearm or hand gun before taking the class.

    This class exceeded my expectations in every area. Although this was my first formal CCW class, I was very knowledgeable going in and I still learned a great deal of practical information. Chris and Jamie ran the entire experience from beginning to end as if students were guests. They provided all the tools and information I needed to confidently carry out my responsibilities as a CCW holder. Because of a physical disability Chris even took extra time with me at the range to give me advice on how to become proficient and safe with my individual needs. I will refer ALL of my friends and family to Chandler’s and WILL RETURN FOR EVERY RENEWAL!

I have been in many classes over the years and when time flies by, it shows that the teacher is excellent and very knowledgeable.

    At the range, several of us brought our own weapons. Don walked thru some things we may not have known about our individual weapons. Individuals from the group were trying others weapons either because they had never fired that specific weapon or to compare similar weapons. We had a lot of fun, everyone was very safe and no one failed the shooting part of the course.

    I would highly recommend Chandler’s. Definitely bring your own weapon and don’t be afraid to use it at the range. Thanks so much for a great course!

    Thank you for a very good class. Ryan and Derek did a super job. Conducting the class ‘off the cuff’ rather than reading from text, made it a very personal and informative class. I actually took this class from a different vender 2 years ago. Chandler’s was about 2 hrs. longer and 10 times better. Being over 70 I really appreciated being able to shoot a gun I could handle vs the 40 cal. I had to shoot at the previous class (30 rounds) I missed their expectations by 2 shots thus was failed and asked to take extra training at additional cost. I will recommend Chandler’s to everyone.

    I would like to thank Don for taking the time on a Sunday to allow my wife and I to attend the very informational and very well taught class. I have been through a carry class years back and I was very impressed with the class Don taught.

    My wife has never been through any training and was a bit nervous on attending the class. She said after we completed the class that she was glad that she took the class and has learned a lot of useful information (and that is coming from a lady that never wanted a gun in the house).

    We were in the middle of two different shoot-outs and I myself was in the middle of a stand off between a officer and a guy at the Holiday store in Hastings, MN. After being involved in that my wife let me get my permit to carry for WI.

    Every night we turn on the TV to watch the news there is at least one if not more shootings involving cops and innocent people that had no way to protect themselves from either getting shot, raped, or robbed. My wife then told me she is ready to get a gun and wanted to know if I would go through the required training to get a permit for WI and MN.
    I was very proud of her to see that she is thinking of her and our family’s safety. I was referred to you by my cousin (name omitted) and was told that it is by far the best training out there. After my wife and I took the training I have to agree with my cousin; it was by far the best that I have gone through.

    Don made us feel comfortable and I liked how caring he was to make sure that if we had any questions just to ask and he made sure our questions were answered. My wife had learned a great deal of information and feels much more comfortable knowing the laws and how to defend herself if ever in the need to do so. And learning how to make sure the gun is safe and unloaded and also with the hands-on training at the range was what she needed to see that guns are not something to be afraid of when handled safely; and if ever in need, she knows how to use one and the laws that apply to having a permit to carry.

    So her new pink Beretta Nano 9mm that I bought her for Valentines Say along with the permit to carry class she said it was the best Valentine’s Day gift ever!
    Now I just have to find her a level 2 Holster with finger slide that she feels comfortable with using has come to a challenge for me to find since the Nano is such a new gun.
    So the search is still on.

    On behalf of my wife and myself we would like to give a BIG Thank You out to Don for very well trained class that he taught us this past Sunday! I will pass on to others of your training.

    Thanks so much Chris – the class was professional, informative, interesting and fun (a hard combination to achieve)
    I am one of those unique people that believe in God and guns (I have spent my career teaching in a church). I believe that anyone who shoots, hunts or has guns in their home should take your class. Your class has so much to offer about awareness, safety, responsibility and legal rights – it would be important for anyone, no matter what their belief in conceal/carry to attend your class. I have been and will continue to promote your class.

    Chris,
    Great job, kept everyone engaged and interested.
    I am a certified sporting clays instructor and have also done Agronomy training for over 30 years across the country.
    This is not criticism but a suggestion from someone that has taught in all kinds of locations. Try setting up in more of a class room style so lines of site are better and people are closer to you.(maybe it was not an option for you at this location)
    I have a suggestion on the hang fire discussion if you have time to give me a call some day.
    It is even a bigger problem with shotguns and with ammo coming from everywhere now it is a big concern! Great Job! Joe Gednalske

    I found the course to be very informative in regards to the limited amount of protection a law abiding citizen has in relation to the amount of protection the criminal element has under the existing laws in Minnesota.

    I am very concerned and reluctant to pursue further the carrying of a weapon. I think you leave yourself open for criticism and judgment by our society as a whole.

    Good course! Every citizen should be aware of the rules of protecting what is theirs and not just those interested in carrying a concealed weapon.

    I was expecting a 4 hour “rules and regulations” class but was very impressed with how they used videos and examples to explain the information and keep it interesting. Chris and Jamie were both very knowledgeable and friendly and wanted you to ask them questions making the class open to discussions. I’d certainly recommend this class to anyone interested in getting a Carry permit, or even those looking for some basic defense training. I’ll definitely be back in 5 years to renew!

    I was very happy with all areas of class and want to say that it was nice that he kept command of the class and kept the what if questions to a minimum.
    Of course he answered every question professionally but there was just less cowboy behavior than I had seen from previous instructor.

    I took my class on 4/20, just wanted you to know that the class with Ryan McCusker was VERY informative. Ryan did a wonderful job of covering all of the material. He was pleasant to listen to and very attentive to his audience–answering any and all of the questions we had. Ryan was very professional and, I really appreciated him stressing safety.

    (PERSONAL NOTE) I use to be afraid of guns and actually hated them. I am a 64 year old grandmother and “the light finally went on”. Who is going to protect the children and innocent people who meet up with the EVIL and Crazy people who SHOULD NOT be carrying guns???? We need MORE – GOOD, HONEST, AND CARING PEOPLE out there in order to protect themselves and the others who are helpless against those who threaten them.

    ONE more note on the class. When it came time for the target shooting,
    which I was very nervous about, Ryan gave me the confidence I needed with his calm mannerisms and encouragement. I would recommend Ryan to anyone who is interested in obtaining a permit to carry.

    “Carry On” my friends and keep practicing. You NEVER KNOW when you may need to protect someone.

    Scheduling a private class was a breeze; these guys are real professionals. Derek was always available to answer questions that either I or my students had. The instructor was prompt and courteous and even the women felt comfortable in class and at the range with him. I plan to use them again in 5 years. Thanks, Brian

    Chris,

    As you are most likely aware, I took your carry class today and wanted to provide you with some feedback.

    I have discussed these classes with many people over the past few months (as we were trying to determine where to go) and heard stories of classes where people would pay a large dollar amount and just sit around and BS for 4 hours until they went to take their shooting test. I was a little concerned about spending that kind of money and not learning anything but still walking away with a certificate that allowed me to carry a deadly weapon with no training.

    Your class was very informative and taught me lessons I would never had thought of myself. You were very knowledgeable and helpful in only presenting the important information and leaving out information that may have a benefit but may not be the most important information to cover during that short time span.

    You have a staff (I met your girlfriend and the “new” instructor) that was very polite and helpful.

    I have already provided your name and website information to many people (in just the past 4 hours) and told them I would rate your class at a 10!

    Thank you so much for your interest in assisting others in legally and appropriately allowing us to take advantage of our 2nd ammendment right to bear arms. What a safe country we would have if everyone was able to take your class and put what they learn to good use ~ or actually following the laws you outlined ~

    Great job to you and kudos to your new instructor — he did a great job as well.

    Excellent class!! Chris is a very knowledgeable instructor and provides much needed information on the responsibilities that come with having a permit to carry. A highly interactive and approachable teacher, Chris is more than happy to answer questions and dispel myths about concealed carry.

    My county sheriff recommended Chris Chandler, that says a lot.

    If you read even 1/2 dozen of the remarks here you will know what everyone has had to say about his class—it’s outstanding. I’ve already applied for my CCP and I’m looking for a good compact to carry.

    The only drawback is that we live in MN with its LIBERAL lawmakers and not enough Constitutional sheriffs and police. I served in the military and we all took an oath, sheriffs and police, too, to defend our Constitution. Most of them haven’t figured that one out, yet.

    Thanks for all the info Chris—-even if I don’t like what I heard about our laws.

    Upon completion of the class I felt confidant and safe using a handgun.

    I was shocked to learn that the general public is 5.7 times more likely to be arrested for violent offenses, and 13.5 times more likely to be arrested for non-violent offenses, than concealed carry weapon permit holders.

    I would encourage people to take this class and become educated about the laws and obligations of the concealed handgun carrier.

    Make an informed decision, whether you choose to obtain a permit or not is your choice.

    Knowledge is key to having confidence.

    What a great class! Chris, you did an outstanding job of creating a serious, yet fun atmosphere in the classroom. I was very impressed with the amount of safety & legal knowledge you gave us and the real life scenarios to go with that knowledge. It really put things into prospective on how & when to use a gun. I have already recommended your class to several people. Thanks again, Lori

    Chris made the class casual and kept all of us informed. It was hard to believe how quickly 4 1/2 hours went by and honestly, so much more information could have been given out. Loved the class, ease of teaching and materials given and even though the wind was blowing at hurricane levels, we were still able to test out with confidence. Thanks Chris!!

    My husband and I both attended Chris’s class on. Dec. 1st 2012. Although we are both seniors we felt very comfortable in this class. Chris is well informed, and able to teach everything required in a thorough knowledgable and exciting manner. He is safety first always and is able to instill this into his students. I learned so much in his class, don’t think we could’ve had a better instructor anywhere else. Would recommend to all our friends and family!

    Thanks Chris for class you gave on the 17th in Kasson, MN. You give a great class; glad I choose to go with you. I went right to the sheriff’s office after the class and applied for my permit. My permit was waiting for me on the 20th. Dodge county is on the ball!

    Chris does a great job keeping your attention. I learned a TON of things about the laws in Minnesota. Laws that I would have broken not taking this class. Even if you are not considering carrying a gun, these are things we all need to know about defending ourselves in this somewhat backward state. Ignorance is no exception to the law, educate yourselves please. I will definitely recommend Chris’s class to everybody. It is money WELL spent.

    Chris put on a class for us in May and it was a great time. For me and my girlfriend this was a renewal class. Chris kept the class entertaining and full of good and useful information. We learned a lot more about real life reasoning than in our first class. (first class was not with Chris) Our class had a good mix of men and women, young and old,new shooters and experienced marksmen and Chris made everyone feel equal and took the time to give more instruction to those who need. THANKS CHRIS for the great class. p.s. Thanks to Derek for all the help getting everyone signed up!

    Chris was AWESOME! I was refered to this class by a friend who had taken it before. And I must say it was WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! Chris has a way of breaking down the “legal” aspect in a way that the average person can understand. Class covers the basics of gun safety as well as what is going to be expected of YOU, as a person that now carries a gun on your person. The class is a “laid back” atmosphere and Chris encourages questions, often stopping to make sure that everyone understands what he is talking about. For the person that has never picked up a pistol to the avid shooter, this class is not only super informative but also a great reminder of gun safety. I think the biggest compliment that I could give would be this: In 5 years when I need to renew my permit, I will be looking for Chris’s class again. TAKE THIS COURSE, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!! A BIG Thank you to Chris and Don for all of your hard work, info and laughs! See you in 5 years!

    Hi Chris,
    I just wanted to give feedback about the class on Sunday. I found it very interesting, there was a lot of good information, you injected some humor to keep people engaged and I thought you did a great job on speaking to the presentation. I found the information about being aware of your surroundings very interesting.

    I started my journey learning about guns a couple of years ago. I took an all day session learning course (Guns 101) with an instructor at Almen’s in Morristown. I didn’t grow up with guns so it was all new to me. In the mean time I have a few friends that have taken me shooting and have had my hands on many different caliber guns. I need some more practice to be more comfortable and confident and then plan on purchasing something. Taking your class allowed me to be one step closer toward my goal.

    Just wanted to give you feedback, sometimes the only feedback people tend to give is negative, not positive.
