Matt, was awesome. Took the familiarization class today. Very informative and attentive. Explained everything very well which made me super comfortable. He has a great personality which made it a even greater experience. Definitely recommend him, especially if you are like me a mom, wife and work late hours and want to get the right information. Thanks Matt.

Matt taught a hand gun class at Larry’s in Huntsville last night, in which I attended, & I must say he was well on his game & demonstrated impeccable sportsmanship in his presentation. Matt was very sculpted and knowledgeable about all of the material. He was over the top in his knowledge about hand guns. Some other words to describe him within the class was amusing (he added character), accomplished, accountable, indomitable, & professional. In the range when we were shooting, he was very attentive to everyone’s implementations, showing positive critiques to help all improve their shooting skills. Overall, very informative class. I would recommend him to everyone and to take a class under Matt - Christopher Blake Heath
I spent about 5 hours learning more about self defense with and without guns and I honestly could’ve spent all day out there. Matt is so awesome, he makes learning so much more fun and a whole lot easier. He goes out of his way to make sure you are comfortable and having a good time. I cannot recommend working with Matt enough. Best experience ever!

My husband took me shooting today and Matt is AWESOME to say the least! He’s so personable and I felt comfortable right off the bat! While the hubs is in the Army and an experienced shooter, I don’t know what I’m doing lol. Matt gave me a thorough lesson on what to do and what not to do when it comes to loading, holding, and shooting a weapon. He was patient with me while I was shooting, and told me exactly what to do to hit the target. He gave me confidence in my abilities and I felt like superwoman hitting those targets! He gave me props along the way, which was super cool! Matt absolutely loves what he does and it shows! He is EXACTLY what you want in a teacher/instructor and you won’t want to go anywhere else, except back to him every time!
A. Catron reviewed Defensive Applications — 5 star August7Matt was the bomb! He was a great teacher, made sure I was always comfortable. You can tell he loves doing what he does. It was a very fun but also knowledgeable class. He taught me exactly what to do and what not to do. I left feeling a lot more comfortable. Highly recommend!

My husband and I just left the Handgun Familiarization class with Matt and we left with so much more knowledge not only about handguns, but about the world around us and the best ways to stay safe. Matt genuinely cares about each person and respects their level of comfortability in regards to self defense. He is extremely personable and makes the classroom experience interesting and valuable. I am already looking at dates to sign up for other self defense classes that he offers. I couldn't recommend him enough!

Excellent instructor with a sense of humor. Gun safety is a extremely important aspect of shooting, but it can be taught on a standard that doesn’t suck the fun out of your range time while still remaining safe. Matt is the perfect example of that teaching style. Loved the variety of targets and scenarios! Will definitely be back very soon!
J. Anderson reviewed Defensive Applications — 5 star October 26, 2017 There is, honestly, not enough good things I can say about the class I took with Matt! Not only did he educate me on my pistol to the point that I felt comfortable handling it, but he made me feel (and showed me that I am) capable of handling it and other gun sizes and types. His outdoor range is awesome, and it was great to be outside for a change shooting at a variety of targets. I would highly recommend taking any class that he teaches. Next, I'm thinking more with rifles. Thanks again, Matt!
