If you've just taken this course....

What were your expectations before you showed up?
I did not have many, if any expectations before arriving to the class. I only had target shooting experience and never thought twice about how my shot would be effected in defense mode. I am so glad my husband and I jumped at this opportunity.

Did I meet or exceed those expectations?
Our instructor James was great. His teaching methods are very effective and hands on. He believes in what works best for the individual. I will say I was a little nervous at first after browsing eagledef.com and James's info. I thought I was going to be yelled at by a military drill instructor, but glad to say it was the complete opposite.

What did you like about the course?
The environment was the best part for me. I felt no intimidation from James or my classmates.

How was the flow/format of the course?
The flow/format of the course was helpful. Starting further away from your target to warm up then working closer helped with confidence.

Were the topics explained well enough?
For what the class is based upon, James did a great job at instructing and demonstrating each topic covered. I would not recommend coming into the class with little to no experience with a firearm. That's when you would attend the first steps/ basic pistol class James offers.

How did you like the drills?
The drills are useful in a real life scenario and helpful in seeing strength/ improvement areas.

Did you find the topics/drills relevant to the course objective?
Yes and no less.

Was this worth the time and money?
Every penny and every second.

Would this be worth $120?
For the drills and enjoyment taken from this course, the $120 is well worth spent.

Anything else you'd like to add.
Waiting for Def Pistol Lv 2. dates.

Feedback for defensive 1 course: Exactly in the level and course that I expect for someone that has some range experience only, but wants to get into areas of learning that he can't from a regular range.

Was also hoping for a slightly longer lunch break so I can eat my sandwich.

Also waiting for a potential def pistol lvl 2 course.

This was a great class. learned many good things that will make me a better shooter and with practice working on the tips from James and this class will even get better. James was knowledgeable and experienced instructor he analyzes every time we shoot and recommend waht to do to improve. The class time and content was very satisfying as we started around 830 and was learning/shooting/what to do scenario all the time till 330. Loved the fact that this class was go go go all the time no BS time at all with quick breaks Will definitely try and take more training with James and definitely recommend this class to any one that is thinking about it.

Sorry about the late post, things have been crazy at work. These are my thoughts on the March 30th Defensive Pistol I course.

What were your expectations before you showed up?

I expected to learn techniques that would improve my chances of survival in a pistol shootout.

Did I meet or exceed those expectations?

Expectations definitely met.

What did you like about the course?

I liked that we had plenty of reps for each point of learning. You're not going to be proficient at anything without practice and we got plenty of that.

How was the flow/format of the course?

Flow was fine.

Were the topics explained well enough?

Yes.

How did you like the drills?

They were fun, though I would have been a bit better at a few if I was in better physical condition!

Did you find the topics/drills relevant to the course objective?

Definitely.

Was this worth the time and money?

Well worth it.

Would this be worth $120?

The course I took would be a steal at $120.

Anything else you'd like to add.

As someone who only recently started carrying a gun for a living, the lessons I learned on that course may save my life someday. The techniques, the repetitions and the focus on fundamentals really brings home the realities of firefights and what you need to survive. I spent an entire morning and afternoon shooting, learning and enjoying myself and would gladly pay $120 or more for future training. Thanks to James for his time and effort!

I took the Def Pistol Lvl 1 offered by James at Eagle Def. I was in the March 28th class (sorry for the late review James). This was a great class; I look forward to doing more. I was expecting to fire off quite a few rounds kill a few sheets of paper. I did just that, the paper didnít stand a chance. The drills James had us run through were great. Initially James went through some quick safe handling practices, holstering, and drawing from holster. I donít recall the exact distances we started firing from but, we started off slow at a distance focusing on trigger control and grouping. We progressed closer and closer noticing grouping getting tighter and tighter. We performed the whole process again focusing on firing the shots off as quickly as possible while maintaining sufficient grouping on paper. We covered jams, emergency reloading, and tactical reloading, among many other skills. James recommended another way to place my support hand; it made a noticeable improvement on my shot placement. Being able to holster draw and rapid fire while maintaining your gun control really helps bolster your confidence. I go to the range as often as I can, but it does not compare to the application of how you would discharge your firearm in a real life stressful situation. A few of Jamesís drills attempted to replicate some stresses you may encounter and pump up your adrenaline as well. You really notice the effects of breathing control on your shot placement, one drill in particular emphasized this. I really enjoyed the lesson, thanks again James. I look forward to taking more classes with Eagle Defense.
