Testimonials

I had a great time learning more about home defense and handling different types of hand guns with Ron. He has a nice collection of hand guns to use which help to become more comfortable with different calibers, gun weight, metal vs. resin etc. His classroom teaching is very good. Shooting on his outside range was fantastic. Shooting out doors is really nice, I prefer it to indoor ranges. I’ll be taking more of his classes in the near future.

David Bartley,

Ron exceeded my expectations with and professionalism and expertise. His attention to safety and detail was impressive. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for firearm training

Paul Manly,

Doesn’t get better than Ron David when comes to understanding gun safety and responsibility. You will not feel intimidated no matter what level of experience you have with guns. Ron’s program is informative, educational, and practical.

Marc Bruno,

Ron and his team go above and beyond to make sure every student is comfortable, capable and well informed! The classroom work is kept engaging and fun, and the range qualification is very safe and methodical. I will recommend ICEFDT to anyone looking for firearms training.

Amy May,

Donell Trusty,

I have attended Joint classes with the owner Ron instructing. He is obviously quite knowledgable. He is also extremely safety oriented while still maintaining a sense of humor and can switch hats on a dime. Having him on the range with you is always a plus and will put you at ease.
