Eric was amazing! He was super funny and kept the class entertaining while giving us important information. I highly recommend taking his class!
Eric is beyond a great instructor! I learned so much in his class today and had fun learning the material. His assistant was amazing as well. From the class to the gun range was very informative. You won't regret taking the classes they offer. Money was well spent and I'm looking forward to take other classes with them to expand my knowledge with carrying a concealed handgun properly. Great for beginners and veterans looking to expand their knowledge on guns.
4ward Defense instructors are very knowledgeable and thorough in gun safety. Today was my very first time firing a gun and it wasn't as nerve wrecking as I thought it would be. I'm glad I decided to take this class and highly recommend it to all beginners.
I was nervous about the class before I showed up. I did not know what to expect. I had shot a gun before but it had been a long time. Eric is the best instructor I’ve seen when it comes to gun safety and the law. My BIL recommended this place and he teaches firearms in the military at boot camp. I knew that if he thought highly of this place then it was good. And I was not disappointed. They went above and beyond to ensure that guns are used safely and that we felt comfortable with the gun before we left the class. I think everyone should take this class!!
Awesome class! The instructor was very informative and easy to keep up with. Made the experience really comfortable, especially when I had only shot a gun a couple times before.
I took my LTC class with Eric and thoroughly enjoyed it. He took the time to explain everything in a manner that was easy to understand. I felt very comfortable asking questions and left the class knowing what to expect moving forward. He offered recommendations of holsters and tips for a good shooting stance that were very helpful during the shooting portion. I plan on taking his advanced training courses to help me with my limited pistol skills and feel more comfortable and knowledgeable carrying.
As someone who has taken his LTC class 3 times (accidentally let it lapse once, have a license in another state), I have more experience than most with this type of class. Eric Ward is definitely the best instructor I've had. His level of passion and knowledge of the subject matter is immediately apparent, and his approach to instruction makes the whole experience a pleasure. The class was held on Jones rd. followed by a short drive to the Shiloh Indoor Shooting range. During the hands on portion of the class, his safety oriented, patient and detailed instruction put both my wife and I at ease. Excellent class all around, I'd recommend to anyone looking to get their LTC permit.
This class was very informative. The instructor Eric was extremely clear with his instructions. I was very prepared for the test at the end and no one feel asleep 😊. Thanks Guys!
These guys know their stuff. I came here to take an LTC class with my wife. It is clear that Eric and his staff are very knowledgeable about Texas laws and gun safety.
Eric is very knowledgeable. Great LTC course. Very thorough. Recommend to all
Eric taught me much more than what I thought I would learn in 4 days I feel well prepared and well equipped. Each day he added something new to build upon and helped me purchase a new firearm and accessories. I'm sure in the future I will be contacting him for even more! He really takes the time to get to know you and taylors toward what you need. Highly recommend 4Ward Defense!
Eric was a great instructor. He was prepared, professional and kind to my age and learning styles. I highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to be well educated.
Awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and great personality. Definetly consider using his services; worth every penny
Great class. Extremely informative and well organized. I will be taking future classes. Chuck
Eric Ward was awesome! The class was very informative and thorough. I recommend this class!
Thank you for the most professional and informational class. Well worth my time and money. I would recommend anyone who is looking to become more comfortable using a firearm and want to learn more about firearms.
Highly recommend for anyone who’s a beginner or an even an expert. Very knowledgeable and in depth advice. Everyone needs to go here!
Tyler Long is a great instructor. Class is so easy. I recommend this location to all. Have fun and good luck a.
I really enjoyed learning here and the instructors were very knowledgeable and easy to understand. I would recommend anyone I know to come here and get their license to carry a handgun.
Eric was very pro and friendly. He thoroughly covered the concealed carry and gun ownership subjects in depth, way past the "just necessary" basics. He made beginners feel at ease with the whole thing. Very interesting and interactive class. Only one thing to improve is the shooting range. The fees of $15 charged by the range guys are very steep considering that we only shoot 50 rounds for 10min. I wish Eric had his own range to include the practice in the total fees, which I believe he is working toward to. Anyway, great class, my wife and I really enjoyed the day and most importantly, we got our LTC !
This class was amazing and cost was just as well. Tons of “Good to know” knowledge. Definitely referring my wife, mother, brothers, and sisters. Great job guys.
The instructor Eric was thoroughly informative and had a vast knowledge of firearms and the laws that govern them. He was friendly and engaging. I definitely came out of the class with a vast amount of knowledge on firearms and gun safety.
I was really nervous, but Eric helped me overcome my fear. He didn’t hold back on any information he actually gave us info that most classes don’t. I will come back to this company for any and everything I need to learn about handling guns. I researched for weeks and this is the only company I found that has great reviews and 5 stars. Thanks Eric!
From the start of the process online at home to the presentation in the classroom to the range and through the finish line, I couldn’t have felt more at ease that I was in good hands and that the vat of my mind was being poured into by not only someone knowledgeable and well-rounded factually in the areas of focus but also by someone passionate about their craft and company’s mission. Eric was a delight both interpersonally and professionally. I’ve been told in the past that no question is a stupid one, but as a few passed through my flappers, I felt they could have been classified as such. However, he responded with patience and a courtesy to my inexperience. 10/10 if more stars were available, and I highly look forward to continuing my education with 4Ward Defense.
