  1. Stephen

    I’m really glad I booked a Basic Firearms class. I took the Basic CPL class at the Cedar Springs location and Dave was the lead instructor. You can tell he has a passion for teaching and he can read a room to keep the class engaging and relate the technical aspects into real-world examples. There were about 10 of us in the class so it was great he could work with us one on one as needed and get help from the other instructors too. The range time was really fun. I felt very safe the whole time, and you get to meet some cool people in this focused, personable class. Best yet, I left the class with my CPL certificate! also, a bonus I thought was neat… his class included a one-year MCRGO membership.

    If anyone in the Michigan area is looking for their cpl or looking to make any improvements with their pistol, I highly recommend Basic Firearms LLC. David Zander runs this company. Me and Devon took our cpl qualifications class with him today and it was nothing short of amazing. Very friendly, very professional and very knowledgeable. 5 star worthy business.
