Tactical Firearms Academy Reviews
As an alum of many classes, there is a clear reason I keep returning, even re-taking classes to refresh my skills.. I have trained with many instructors and TFA is on par or surpasses the best of them, even the high priced big name instructors and ranges. I recommend them highly, especially for those looking to acquire initial skills with firearms in a safe completely professional environment. Andy is thorough, a complete professional, and an excellent educator. After taking your first class, you will certainly agree there is no better place to spend your time and money in S Florida if you want firearms training.
Fantastic! I am a married mom with kids and a very busy/stressful career. I also have a serious interest in tactical shooting. I go to my local range to practice, but I decided I needed to get away from the day to day grind in order to truly focus on improving my skills. I researched firearms academies across the US and selected Tactical Firearms Academy as my #1 choice. But as I don’t live in Florida I was nervous about traveling by myself to a new place to train with someone I didn’t know. I reached out to Andy and we started a dialogue. Andy quickly diffused any apprehension I had and so off to FL I went.
I wasn’t disappointed! As soon as I met Andy, I could tell I was about to get into some serious training!! He went through the basics making sure I had the right foundation for safe and effective shooting. He covered all the needed building blocks and we kept building from there. Andy uses the appropriate mix of classroom, training pistols and live fire in his instructions. As serious as he is with his training, he is also aware of the student’s position, and will work with the student’s ability to absorb and apply new skills. Andy makes the entire environment comfortable for the shooter.
His skills and situational awareness made it easy for me so that I could focus on just my shooting.
Great experience and I highly recommend Andy and Tactical Firearms Academy.
I just attended the Tactical Pistol I all-day class with Andy, and I could not be happier with the results. He's a fantastic and very experienced instructor who really stresses the importance of key concepts such as proper weapon education, weapon handling, situational awareness, training, and so much more. Him and his assistant instructors break down concepts for you and analyze what it is that you're doing wrong in the moment so that you can correct these errors and improve. At the end of the day, remember that owning a firearm is one of the most responsible things any person can do, and without the proper training (or with bad weapon handling habits and education), you could end up doing more harm than good to yourself and others around you. In short, I highly recommend this course (and there are others available) to anyone in the South Florida area. Andy and his team are known for being solid at what they do.
Carbine/Patrol Rifle fundamentals class. Clewiston location 3/24/18 - For anyone that wants to initially gain or improve their self defense skills using a carbine this is a great class. I took this class with my son and our expectations turned out to be low. Andy and Terry are real pros. They'll keep you safe while hammering in the basic operation methods and how to respond to malfunctions. The class size allows for the instructors to effectively address an individual student directly during the drills. If you are a complete newbie this class is for you. If you are someone who thinks they are good to go... this class will test your basics and you will have fun!
Just took Force on Force for the 3rd time. It was great training and a lot of fun. Every time I take the class I learn a ton of new information. I have recommended this class to several friends, infact a few of them took the class with me this weekend.
