What some of our students are saying:
"I want to share my experience with Julio and his firm. I signed up for the concealed
weapons class. This is something I always wanted to do, but just put it off. While I did handle weapons as a youth growing
up in New England, it had been many years. I was a little aprehensive going in. Am I too old, will I remember all the things
I was taught etc. Well I was pleasantly surprised. Julio welcomed me personally as he did with every clas member and made
us all feel very comfortable. The class was very informative. It wasn't just a sit and listen and you go home. Julio
encouraged interaction with all the students and made the class fun. We each got personal attention on the pistol handling
and were trained to consider safety at all times. After the class we went to the shooting range to exercise our new
skills. One at a time Julio guided us on the loading, aiming and firing of our chosen weapons. By the end of the day I felt
that I was highly trained and skilled. This would never would have happened if done on my own. Julio, a big THANK YOU!
I will be signing up for the next level of training and can't wait to get back to the range to sharpen my skills!" ~ Rich Rosand
"Thank You for Your Excellent CWP Training class of Today.
You give an excellent training class for the CWP
and covered the area in depth. I taught technical subjects while in the Air Force for five years so I recognize an excellent
instructor when I see one. Thank you from me and my family." ~ Bill Dingley
I just wanted to say thanks again for your assistance and great class. Got my license in only 8 days after applying for it,
and at those looking to get a CWP , all I can say is, you can’t go wrong in his class. It’s hard not to repeat
what is being said in the other testimonies … but I too am looking forward to the next class.” ~ Carlos Rodriguez
"Attended 7 Nov 2010 CWP class presented by Julio Cortes.
This gentleman is truly passionate about his work, and it showed in what was one of the best classes, subject matter aside,
that I have ever taken. Besides his superb firearm and tactical knowledge, I especially appreciated his patient and thorough
handling of student questions. With his wit, humor, and inventive use of teaching props, he turned what could have potentially
been a dry, ho hum, let's get it over with, classroom scenario into a most enjoyable and informative experience. Thank you,
Mr. Cortes--you are a superb teacher and wish there were more like you." Richard M.
wanted to write you this email to express my sincere thanks after attending today's CWL class. My fiancee, my cousin, and
I all thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would wholeheartedly recommend this course to anyone seeking instruction and certification
to carry a concealed firearm in the State of Florida. Even though I have had some previous military firearms training, my
cousin has had some very limited firearms experience, and my fiancee had shot a pistol exactly one time before today, the
course was engaging, informative, and useful for all three of us. Your effective use of props, engaging teaching style, and
ideal mixture of wit and the ability to stress the seriousness and value of safety rules and proper firearms handling made
what could have otherwise been a relatively boring or monotonous lecture into a vibrant and informative day. I appreciate
the individual time you took with my fiancee and others who required additional instruction and encouragement and it is a
testament to your love for the sport and desire to inspire a sense of civic responsibility to preserve our Second Amendment
rights in your students. We look forward to registering for your next available Tactical Pistol I course in April and have
plans to progress through your entire Tactical Pistol series of courses (I-III) and eventually progressing to the Tactical
Carbine and mixed firearm courses.
See you on the range..."

"I was in Julio's
class of CWL , and I got the licence in my pocket
only in two weeks, thanks to the instructor's teaching
and his guidance, also
the class was very informative and enjoyable. I recommend anyone who wants to
license soon." Raul
"Hello Julio, Thank you for an excellent
class today. I had forgotten how much I enjoy target shooting! I found your instruction today to be well-planned and professionally
executed. You demonstrated your knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject matter, and the time seemed to fly by. Congratulations
on a job well done, which I'm sure is the norm for you. My husband sends his thanks once again for allowing him to observe.
You can be sure that we will recommend you and your company to any of our friends (not the liberals!) who may be
interested in any of your courses.
~ Susise Blank
"My bestfriend Jeanette and I thank you very
much for your wisdom on defensive actions to take and of control over ourselves. We will love to continue more training with
you as soon as possible. Again we thank you." Jessie
"Julio`s class moves along nicely for the experienced
shooter and the newbie. His info relating to the miss firing of a pistol is something every shooter should learn. He also
takes the time to show every student the basis of a pistol grip and trigger pull.This was paramount for my wife since she
won`t listen to me..." Chris Guarino
"Just wanted to express many thanks to Mr. Julio
Cortes for giving me the opportunity for taking his CWP class (July 10th). It was a great experience and i can't wait until
Aug.21 for the Tactical Pistol 1 Session. I also could not hesitate to become an NRA member! Thanks for the advice Julio!
Hope to see you and the family soon..."
