"It took me 1 year to get a hold of a good Firearms Certificate Instructor and the Govt. system is very poor at directing us to the right places. One guy I talked to said that he never had enough students so kept postponing and that took 6 months.

Murray Gardner is really a professional instructor and his experience and methods are excellent. All new license applicants should go through him, in my opinion. Most other people probably just quit and never get this far."
