HIGHLY RECOMMEND Eric sets an industry standard with customer service. While the average "big name" vendor takes days to respond, update order status, ship etc Eric personally texted me at 9pm minutes after I had payment issues ordering. He re-built my cart, processed payment directly with me and had a real time update the following morning. This is my second order with 4ward Defence but will not be my last. Simply said, he has earned a lifetime customer.
4Ward Defense Firearms is amazing. Eric was a great instructor and friendly. He helped me with a better shooting technique to make sure I qualified for my license to carry. I would definitely recommend and even come back for other firearms related business.
Very informative and helpful. Went above and beyond for my business even with me being an out of state and CA customer. I will definitely utilize 4ward for any of my firearm needs that they are able to fulfill. 10/10 experience through all aspects of my transaction. Edit: My second transaction was one of the best experiences I've had with any type of retail company. I had a third party company directly ship some parts to 4ward and they went ahead and installed them and shipped my order out at the same price without any service fee. Unbelievable and Top Notch!!!! Thanks Eric! I'll be contacting you about a firearm pretty soon. I can't think about going anywhere else for now on. Best.
I'm very happy with my purchases from 4Ward Defense's website. I havn't been to their physical location as I am out of state. They got my standard capacity magazines to me for some of the best prices I could find online in a timely fashion, and they were well packed and protected. I did have one item that was back ordered, and the owner was quickly in contact with me, and updated me on my item and shipping info. I would happily do any business with them again!
I was in vacation but needed to buy some accessories. To my surprise the “big box” retailers were not selling the items *yet*. I wanted to make sure that I got my stuff early and this is where 4Ward Defense Firearms + Training came through. They had inventory and was willing to sell to would be buyers. Long story short, I was able to order what I needed while on the road. Often times, people take smaller operations for granted, BUT in this instance, it was the smaller guy that was able to deliver upon expectations. Looking forward to future purchases. Thanks guys!!!
BEST LTC CLASS Texas has to offer HANDS DOWN. Tyler, my Instructor, was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of owning, handling, and operating a firearm along with everything I needed to know to protect myself legally in a Self-Defence situation. The class was overall a super fun learning experience filled with respectable students and I would recommend 4ward defense to all my family and friends, also anyone looking to protect who or what they hold most dear. I had so much fun it was well worth the 7 hours it took, would do it all again if I had to.
Very informative and helpful. Went above and beyond for my business even with me being an out of state and CA customer. I will definitely utilize 4ward for any of firearm needs that they are able to fulfill. 10/10 experience through all aspects of my transaction.
I had family visiting and they all wanted to learn how to shoot, so I called Forward Defense Firearms and Training. We had a great group experience, and everyone was given personal training on the safe handling of firearms. Then we all got personal training at the firing range. Everyone was delighted with the outcome and I highly recommend the company.
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.
