Client Feedback

 A few months back I had the chance to met up with Mr. McLaren and do some shooting/instruction. When I first met him, he was polite and easy going. Once the instruction/shooting started he was very professional. He broke down the do's and don'ts, as well as demonstrated techniques. But the biggest and most helpful tip was something he said that I haven't heard before regarding effective transitioning from iron sights to a pistol mount optic (red dot). I would gladly take another one of his classes
