Non-Lethal training was so much fun

The kids loved shooting.  They can't wait to do it again.  Non-lethal ammo made it so relaxing, but still gave a great training enviornment that developed safety and technique, with no danger.

We recommend Shadow Dawg for your concealed carry instruction

Shadow Dawg was able to be very accommodating with our unique schedule. Despite the VERY cold weather Ed was able to provide current and engaging information. During the shooting he provided clear instruction and directions. When mistakes were made he was patient and understanding (even though it got colder) when demonstrating proper technique. He was able to help with questions we had on weapon selections. We recommend Shadow Dawg for your concealed carry instruction.

Making the shooting portion educational and fun

Met with Ed Bowles to finish up my CCL training at the Black Creek firing range. Had a great experience as ED put me fully at ease while making the shooting portion educational and fun. Ed has an engaging style that removes any anxiety you might have. So go to his training expecting him to be patient and fully involved in making you a better armed citizen.

The range instruction and practice was the best I have experienced

Hi Ed,

Just a quick note to tell you I really enjoyed the ECCW class and the subsequent training on the range.

The review of current self-defense law in Idaho allowed me to asked questions about recent updates and changes, and your legal instructor, Rachel, is well-versed and was willing to go off on a tangent to answer specific questions on the applications of the law.

The range instruction and practice was the best I have experienced in 20+ years. Questions were answered and rusty techniques were corrected & polished. You and Elaine conducted a class that was well-planned and safely executed. My spouse Carol echoes my thoughts and we would recommend your training to anyone who wants firearms training and enjoys shooting.

Thanks again to you and Elaine . . .
