People Learn Firearms Safety
  • “My teacher Douglas Worthen is a great guy, he takes his time to explain about real life situations, and parts of the guns with demonstration. He goes on to fix the problems you have in class. Also, he explains everything clearly and breaks down the parts of different gun types, teaches about all the safety parts, and how to handle and operate a gun. Class is fun and informative!
