"Mike, Lillian & Don were absolutely amazing! I came in a little uneasy with little knowledge & i have never felt more comfortable after this training! Mike was extremely helpful with explanations and making me feel comfortable with the gun i chose to my likings. I will absolutely be returning after purchasing my gun for more range/tactical training!"

"10/10 recommend! Mike and his wife are very welcoming. The class was very informative and thorough. The instructors answered all of the questions asked very well. You can tell they are passionate about the subject and enjoy being there with you."

Female Client in Lake City

"Mike, Lilian, and Don are fantastic! The information you learn from attending this class is invaluable. If you are looking for a concealed carry permit this is where you need to go. The class was great and I highly recommend it!"

Client in Putnam County

"Mike and his wife provided such a welcoming and comforting experience! They encourage questions and go over everything you need to know and more! I highly recommend training through them. I will be returning at a later date for the self defense for women training!"

Female Client in Lake City

"Mike & Lilian are a very welcoming and informative couple! I learned way more at this class than my boyfriend did at his class with a different business. 10/10 would recommend to everyone!"

Female Client in Lake City

"I'll say up front that this isn't the cheapest class out there to qualify you for your concealed carry license. And it's not very likely going to be right around the corner from home. For us it was about an hour and 15 minutes drive. But this training was worth every minute and every penny, and I'd wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone considering the idea of carrying a gun. Even if you think you might not want or need a license, this training is still invaluable in helping navigate nuances in the law that you won't find by surfing the Internet or watching utube videos. These are the guys to teach you how to be safe, smart, and legal with a handgun. As an added bonus they have dozens of handguns in their collection for you to handle and fire. Dial in the best choice for your carry gun before you drop hundreds on something you'll regret owning! Don't settle for a cheap, rubber stamp class from an insurance salesman. Get real training from folks who are qualified, professional, friendly, patient, and ready to help you any way they can!"

Client in Putnam County

"Every woman should think about attending this training with 2A Tactical and Training. I decided to take this class because I was petrified about handling a gun. I decided that if I ever was placed in a position of having to, I wanted to know what to do. Mr. Weeks, the instructor, was very patient and thorough with the training. I learned more than just how to handle a weapon. The first part of the class was learning about Florida law, watching different scenarios with discussions on what to do and how to protect yourself if you are a victim of a crime. I highly recommend this training and look forward to attending other classes they offer. I can't say enough about this training and Mr. Weeks. He was professional and never got frustrated with all my questions. Thank you, Mike and Lilian!!"

Female Client in Alachua

"Absolutely LOVED this class and had a really good time! It was very informative and they answered any kind of questions we had! We spent the first half of the day with Mike going over concealed carry laws in Florida, learning good shot vs bad shot, as well as several other helpful things we needed to know. Mike’s wife Lily, made us a fantastic lunch and was super helpful with showing us women ways to conceal carry. She also helped us find guns we liked, that we could try out later. We spent the second part of the day shooting the guns we liked so we could best figure out which one we would like to carry. I highly recommend this class!!"

Female client in Ellisville

"Awesome class!! Very thorough!! Highly recommended for people unfamiliar or wary with firearms."

Client in Gainesville

"More than just a class for certification! Mike and his team go above and beyond to educate on an individual level. Our class had everyone from experienced youngins to a grandma who had never held a weapon before and everyone got one on one tailored instruction. The added bonus of his wife's cooking and incredible knowledge of weapons and carry options for women was something you won't find anywhere else. I cannot recommend this class enough. Already looking at possibly going back for some private instruction."

Female Client in Putnam County

"Excellent training for both new users and those of us who have been away from guns for awhile. Highly recommend and well worth the time and money!"

Client in Gainesville

"I took an all day class with 2A Tactical, and have to say it was definitely time well spent. The location, small class size, Mike's enthusiastic, patient teaching style all contribute to a positive and successful learning experience. Mike engaged each student in the discussions during the session, which built comfort and confidence. I found the class time covering the legalities of carrying and using firearms in different scenarios to be very interesting and thought provoking. The opportunity to work with different weapons in an atmosphere where safety is the priority during range time is a bonus I appreciated. I can't come up with a single negative or critical comment on my day at 2A Tactical, and recommend that anyone looking to gain knowledge and build skills in handling firearms consider this class. THX Mike, hope to see you soon."

Client in Alachua

"LOVED this training class. I attended the women's only session and received so much more training than just firearms. I highly recommend this to anyone but especially women. They carefully trained us with knowledge and skill. Very much worth it."

Female Client in Pensacola

"This class was way better than I expected! The hospitality and casual environment made it even better. Mike, Lilian and Don are exceptional at what they do. They explain everything very well with real life examples. The class portion is a little long but that was expected. The shooting part made up for that! Overall I learned a lot and learned the guns I expected to like I actually didn't. Have already recommended this class to others!"

Female Client in Putnam County

"Awesome CW class. The instructors were both patient and informative. I would absolutely recommend 2A Tactical and Training to anyone who is looking to get their CW License"

Client in High Springs

"Mike shared his expertise with me last week with a private lesson. He was well prepared for my firearm inexperience and nerves. Turns out that I am left eye dominant and although left handed shoot right handed. He had a challenge with me, and I did fairly well as he had a few tricks up his sleeve to help me. In addition, he was on time, detailed and well organized. That meant alot to me as I drove 1.5 hrs to meet him.
Mike is professional, kind, and was extremely patient with me. I intend to take the group class with he and his wife this fall, if at all possible, and another private class.
I recommend without hesitation Mike Weeks as a firearm instructor. Thank you, Mike, for those extra seconds, minutes and hours to prepare for my class. You're the best!"

Female Client in Jacksonville

"As someone who had only held a firearm maybe twice, and had never even shot one, I was a bit hesitant to attend. My boyfriend wanted to introduce me into the idea of having a firearm for safety and help me step up to overcome my anxiety around firearms. This class did an AMAZING job making me feel comfortable in understanding what’s going to happen when I fired a weapon and how to safely handle weapons. I did not feel a lick of anxiety as I fired the gun for the first time and the instructors were incredibly patient and understanding. Even after I told them I had no experience at all, they didn’t make me feel inferior to anyone else in the class and were actually a bit excited to be teaching me. I felt completely comfortable and learned so much, I couldn’t recommend them enough. Mike does an amazing job teaching even the boring stuff and getting everyone engaged and understanding during the class, and his wife is incredibly funny and showed amazing demonstrations for the ladies on how to carry discretely. They left us with resources and enough knowledge to be able to pick out our own weapons with more confidence. There is so much more to be said about how much fun it was, but it’d be better to experience it yourself, if you’re thinking about it, don’t hesitate! A 10/10 experience! And the food was delicious!"

Female Client in Lake City

"Great group of people! Enjoyed every bit of the class, learned ALOT! Highly recommend 2A Tactical and Training!!"

Female Client Putnam County

"Great class! Very informative, and very well done. Instructors were very informative and extremely helpful. Can’t say enough about the class. Well worth it."

Client in Jacksonville

"I had a great experience with Mike and his wife Lilian and Don today. I received a lot of important information and learned a lot I didn't know. If your looking for a excellent concealed training class to take, this one's the one I think. Thank you very much for such a great experience."

Client in Columbia County

"Mike & Don were excellent instructors. They both led their experiences and teachings off of each other. There was a challenging customer in this teaching experience that was good at trying everyone's patience. I never saw or felt anything from either instructor getting short with patience, instructions, teaching, or response to any questions asked by any of us. This class was very helpful, informative, and just an overall fantastic experience that I would highly recommend any/everyone taking this class with these 2 instructors. You won't be disappointed. Then you have Mike's wife do her female end of this experience doing her presentation. She is a very sweet woman and showed us a lot of options available for concealed carry for us females. All in all, this is a class everyone should take the time to get to this class. Thank you all for showing us all you have."

Female Client in Kingsley Lake

 

"Perfect class for me! Thank you to Mike and Scott for presenting the information in a way that was comfortable and stress free. You answered my questions and made me feel respected. I HIGHLY recommend this class for women who are not sure if a Concealed Weapons permit is the right fit. You will walk away feeling safe and educated."  

Female Client in Union County

"We recently attended the all day, defensive handgun/conceal carry class. It was extremely educational and we walked away with a wealth of information. We are older adults and plan on taking future classes to keep us educated and confident on handling hand guns. We were able to see which hand gun best suited us after using several different types. Mike and Don were excellent trainers and had tons of patience with us. Mike's wife Lilly showed us different forms of concealment and even had the time to cook us a great lunch. We recommend this training to everyone thinking of owning or using a firearm. Thanks again Mike, Don and Lilly."

Client in Lake City

"This class was fantastic! The instructors Mike & Don were so informative and helpful. They went above and beyond my expectations. Lilian made us a delicious lunch and demonstrated how to carry, she was very accommodating to us all! I highly recommend this experience to anyone that wants to obtain knowledge of concealed weapons and learn which gun feels best for you comfortably. The atmosphere of everyone involved was very welcoming and friendly. Amanda provided great useful information to us as well!"

Female client in Alachua County

"The class was very well put together. The curriculum was presented in a way that made it easy to understand no matter what your experience was prior to the class. I would definitely recommend Mike to anyone needing their conceal carry."

Female client in Bradford County

"I have been scared of guns for so long. Being a mother it always scared me to carry a weapon with me if I was always around my kids. This day in age you need to protect yourself. Mike and Scott have calmed me of my fear and helped me through learning and being more aware of how to handle a gun. I would recommend them to anyone. As well as take another class to build on my training."

Female Client in Lake City

"This class exceeded all my expectations! Not only did we learn so much about how to protect ourselves and our family, but we received the best customer service! I would recommend this class to everyone looking to get certified to carry."

Female Client in Jacksonville

 

"What an awesome learning experience! Thank you so much Mike Weeks and Scott Howard with 2A Tactical and Training for hosting our concealed carry class. If you’re looking for training towards your CWFL these are the guys to see!" 

Female client in Union County

"What a great experience I had today. I had a very thorough conceal training, in a relax environment. Mike and Don did a fantastic job explaining the important aspects of not only owning a gun but also carrying it and the responsibility that comes with it in many different scenarios. We were able to discover the best firearm we felt comfortable with and thought how to use it properly. The importance of safety It was reinforced many times during class which I believe is one of the key aspects of training along with the legal aspects of conceal. His wife showed us many different types of clothing and gadgets for us to wear so as females we can also have other options than a purse. Listening to many experiences really put into perspective the importance of gun knowledge and laws behind it and I’m feel very proud of each person there today, including myself, that took the step to do it the right way. I will definitely recommend their training and I’m glad that I was part of 2A tactical and training. Will see you soon with my husband! Thanks for a great experience!!!"

Female client in Gainesville

"We had a wonderful experience with CWFL certification training at 2A Tactical and Training. A relaxing family style set up that was interesting and engaging. What could potentially be dry rule and regulation material was presented in an innovative fashion. Questions and participation was actively encouraged. A large amount of popular concealed carry pistols were on display to help everyone find a great fit for themselves for a carry weapon. Mike has a long standing practice of empowering women by ensuring they are comfortable with the handgun and how to use it. Lilian was a stellar hostess with delicious food and an in depth presentation of carry accessories available for women. The range training & certification was excellent. Each individual received in depth instruction on handgun safety, grip, shooting, and even malfunction drills! My wife took the class, and I was invited to monitor it with her, even though I am a long time CWFL holder. I want my daughter to take this class in the future. I highly recommend 2A Tactical and Training and urge you to sign up for a class!"

Client in Lacrosse

"Man, it was a lot and it was awesome and informative! Lots of preconceived notions about certain types and firearms completely reversed! Don, Mike and Lillian are so welcoming I love their candid honesty and dedication. Helped me find a pistol that found comfortable (and may be my future EDC), did drills and even let us try an AR and an exotic 2k Colt Python! Very keen on safety!!! Plus Lillian is an awesome cook and definitely has some good ideas for EDC for the ladies (and a few for men too)!! It was an experience well worth the money, I definitely am going back again!"

Client in Union County

"Class was informative and interactive. Lunch was included and delicious. they even help you pick a hand gun that fits your hand properly."

Female client in Jacksonville

"One of the best Saturdays I've ever had probably the most informative instructors in Florida I thought I was properly informed of Florida gun laws but I was wrong until I joined the class now I feel better equipped to protect myself and my loved ones and make the right decision if that time should come if you're lookin to get a concealed carry permit this is definitely the place to do so they really care about the folks who join there program and not to mention the hospitality and they even fed us a home-cooked meal I really hope more law abiding citizens will join the family"

Client in Putnam County

"Awesome CW class. The instructors were both patient and informative. I would absolutely recommend 2A Tactical and Training to anyone who is looking to get their CW License."

"5 Stars! This class was the most informative ever. Mike is an extremely good communicator. I highly recommend his classes."

Client in Ocala

"I had such a great time!! This class was EXACTLY what I was looking for and Mike and Scott are BEYOND AMAZING!"

Female Client in Lake City

"The class I took here was AMAZING! I've been in more classes than I can count, and this is by far the best, and my favorite. Mike and Scott are so full of knowledge and insight and they make even the less fun parts of the class interesting and engaging. They go above and beyond to give their classes the best preparation and training possible. I can't get over how much fun my class was!"

Female Client in Levy County

"If you want to get your CWL, take this class! I attended this training in September 2022. This training is more than your “typical” training sessions. In this class you feel welcomed & greatly informed on firearms. I learned so much information in one day. Before attending this class, I had only shot a pistol one other time & felt uncomfortable around firearms. After this class, I can not wait for my CWL to come in so I can go buy my own gun and practice with it. Thank you Mike, Don & Lillian!"

Female Client in Ellisville

"5 Stars"

Client in Gainesville

"Mike highest rating. Recommend to everyone who is interested in conceal and carry. Atmosphere, family feel, informative, safety, knowledge just a few key words. Best class I've every attended. Genuine care to make sure you have all questions answered and properly trained."

Client in Jacksonville

"Hands down the best bang for your buck! While there are many options for getting basic firearms training in and around Alachua county, I found this to be the best value by far. No disrespect to other places that offer a similar course but the basic handgun course Mike offers is priced considerably less than competitors while also providing you with a wide range of handguns to practice with. Everything you need is provided, including a great lunch! You would have to rent or provide your own gun at pretty much every other course. The environment is great for beginners and there is a lot of value in the education and content presented. I highly recommend 2A and even if you have to wait for a weekend to open up - it is well worth it."

Client in Alachua County

"I had an amazing experience and learned so much. I felt very comfortable and liked all the interaction questions with everyone in the class."

Female client in Gainesville

"To say that this class exceeded my expectations would be an understatement! There was so much information that we did not know prior to attending the class. We are definitely better educated now! The information as well as the environment, attention to detail and great customer service made the class 100% worth it!"

"Very thorough class that takes you through practical and legal aspects of conceal carry. The teaching couple are very welcoming opening up their home to give opportunity to try different gun types while learning shooting basics. I left well informed and ready to start practicing self defense on the daily. Interested in more of their classes."

Female Client in Alachua County

"Hi my name is Zac. We are reviewing 2A Tactical and Training. Using google maps this locations is easy to find and plenty of parking and the grounds are clean. Would recommend calling Mike once parked and let him give you entrance instructions. Mike is very responsive so calling him will get you in touch. Great place to educate yourself and Mike is one of Florida's best instructors. Absolute great time and will be back for classes."

Client in Gainesville

"Mike and his crew are a great bunch, patient and very thorough with their training."

Female client in Macclenny

"I cannot express enough how absolutely amazing this class is! Mike and Scott are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and definitely go above and beyond to put their heart into putting together such a wonderfully designed and planned out program! I attended an “all ladies“ class and these guys had such patience and care to make sure absolutely everyone in the class was comfortable and understood everything that was being discussed. Simply saying that they go “above and beyond” what is required of them, is an understatement. It is overwhelming apparent that these men absolutely love what they do and have a passion for equipping others to be able to safely, knowledgeably, and legally carry and operate a concealed weapon. I absolutely recommend anyone who is considering getting their concealed weapons permit to take this class. Any hesitation, uncertainty, or anxiety you may have will absolutely diminish after working with these two amazing men. You will not find a better combination of knowledge, skill and genuine care anywhere else. If you are looking for personable instructors who absolutely address any questions you may have, this is the place for you!"

Female Client in Lake City

"Great class this passed weekend (5 stars)! Thanks to Mike, Don, and Lillian (EXCELLENT BREAKFAST & LUNCH). Debra really learned and the fears was removed during that time. Thanks again guys!!"

Client in Gainesville

"2A Tactical and Training will exceed your expectations. Mike takes the time to understand your needs and creates lesson plans that will build your confidence and skill. I highly recommend and look forward to more lessons and the group class!"

Female Client in Lake City

"My husband and I attended the All Day Class-Defensive Handgun/conceal carry class in November 2022. After attending that class we applied for our Carry Conceal permits. We both knew we needed additional training. Since we were very happy with the training we received at 2A Tactical and Training, we contacted Mike Weeks for additional training. We met Mike at the Bradford Sportsman Farm and had received intense training for several hours on January 12, 2023. He had developed a personalized training plan for both of us. Mike taught us how to anticipate recoil, aiming, breath control, how to properly grip a handgun, trigger control and follow through. He also prepared multiple shooting drills and malfunction drills for us. My husband is a left handed shooter but is right eye dominant and Mike taught him how to properly shoot using certain techniques.
Mike's patience and his passion is what really helped us learn and understand how to properly and safely shoot. We highly recommend to anyone needing individual one on one training to contact 2A Tactical and training. In our case we are older adults and new shooters so this training helped build our confidence."

Female Client in Columbia County

"Mike & Scott are knowledgeable, personable, and extremely hospitable. I cannot recommend them enough! Thanks guys!"

Female client in Jacksonville

"I never thought I needed to take a gun safety class. I was so wrong. So wrong. I highly recommend you to take 2A Tactical and Training class with the best instructors ever, Mike Weeks and Scott Howard. They were nothing but phenomenal. Thank you to Mike’s sweet Wife, Lilly for breakfast and lunch. I learned so much and will be signing up for another class. If I could rate this class it would be with a 100 stars!!! Mike and Scott watch out, I will be back..."

Female Client in Bradford County

"I took the Concealed carry class last year and Mike really takes to time to teach his students not only the basics about owning a gun but how to use it in real world Scenarios. He teaches how the law applies to you and how to not go to jail being a gun owner. He teaches classes not for money but , because he is passionate about our 2nd amendment and he wants us to be able to defend ourselves as women and mothers he works full time so it’s not like he is pushing loads of people threw daily to pay bills like most places. It took me a year to get my background check approved so I went back for a one on one training and refresher course. I wanted to learn how to handle and maintain my own guns. Mike created a personalized training plan for me and after a couple hours I was running, gunning, clearing , and reloading … I feel 200x secure and confident in defending my family or fellow citizens if need be. I’m taking my 13 year old son next in a month or so to get him trained because knowledge is power and I’m not leaving anything to chance. A side note … Mike never made me feel stupid, less than or stressed.. he is calm and confident and I trust him."

Female Client in Lake City

"What a great experience! I highly recommend 2A Tactical and Training. The instructors were professional and informative. They had an answer to every question we had. They made sure that we were comfortable and felt safe with the gun we chose to shoot on the range. We are looking forward to continuing additional education with Mike and Scott."

Female Client in Jacksonville

"What a great class! Mike and Scott are phenomenal instructors. This was an interactive experience, great for beginners. I can’t wait to go back for more in depth, hands-on training."

Female Client in Bradford County

"WOW! What an incredible class. Mike & Scott provide a wealth of information not just about concealed carry but lots of stuff people would never think of. Greatly appreciate their dedication to helping us protect ourselves especially in our world today. Thanks to you both and thanks to Lillian for her input from a woman's perspective. Thank you Scott for the "Survival Tips and Tactics for Active Lifestyle Women". Highly recommend this course."

Female Client in Jacksonville

"The Best of the Best! Go give 2A Tactical and Training a like and contact Mike Weeks or Scott Howard for all your concealed weapons class needs! This was an amazing experience and taught me more than what I thought I did with dealing with guns safely and how to use them properly. They met my expectations right away and have broaden my knowledge, and the best part about this class was walking away confident in myself knowing that I can defend myself safely. Thank you so much 2A Tactical and Training for all that you do!" 

Female Client in Union County

I would take this class again and again! Thank you Mike and Scott for doing such an amazing job! You guys are awesome!"

Female Client in Bradford County

"2A Tactical and training is the best hands down! I say that because I have taken other courses and didn't learn a quarter of training or hands on skills I learned today. It was worth every second and every cent to gain the knowledge and confidence I received. Mike and Scott are AWESOME!! They are very informative, knowledgeable, professional and make you feel comfortable in a family friendly environment. I will definitely be returning for extensive training and referring my family and friends."

"2A Tactical and Training, I highly recommend their services. I attended a Concealed weapons class and I really enjoyed it. Mike and Scott were great instructors. Educating me to the fullest and actually stopping to ask questions and made sure I fully understood. From arriving until the very end I was made comfortable and congratulated on my efforts and accomplishments! I will definitely return for further education and fun! Thank you guys for the opportunity to be properly educated on weapon safety and the protection of my family!! God Bless😘"

Female Client in Lake City

"I could not have had a better experience with a gun course! Both instructors were very polite, respectful, and extremely helpful. We eased into the use of a handgun and they constantly made sure we were comfortable before each shot. No information was withheld and I truly feel like they did everything they could to educate on the safety and proper use of a gun. I highly recommend them for anyone that is interested!"

Female client in Palatka

Client in Gainesville

 

"THIS was an amazing class! I learned so much. It was really good to be able to focus on situations women might specifically face. Mike and Scott made us feel comfortable, safe, and respected. Most importantly, I left feeling more confident about concealed carry practices should I choose to do so. I highly recommend this class if you are a woman who is looking into the concealed carry process."  

Female Client in Bradford County

"I gotta say first and foremost that not even a long, constant steady rain could stop the 2A Tactical Team from providing nothing but grade A training(BAR NONE). Mike and Scott did a hell of a job, the atmosphere was very laid back but there lessons and the way they teach(just sucks you in). From the LAWS and STATUES all the way to real life TACTICAL events, they'll have it to where you leave 10 times better than you came. The only thing I would complain about is the fact that they didn't have a 6th star to add lol. Gentlemen, don't ever change and keep doing what your doing because your way of training will spread in the best way...............Another satisfied client"

Client in Gainesville

"AMAZING!!!! If you are looking to get your Concealed Permit do not pass up 2A!! I already had my concealed carry permit, but decided to take it again with my gf when she got hers, and I was not disappointed. Mike and Scott are excellent, and they take the time to go through all of your questions and concerns with you. I will definitely be back for more ongoing training!!"

Client in Gainesville

"Great training day at 2A Tactical and Training for my conceal carry certification. Highly recommended for those who want more than just a certificate. Mike and Scott are awesome instructors, I guarantee you will leave at the end of the training session with high confidence level handling a firearm and understanding of the law. The best part is the option to choose from several firearms to shoot and see which one is most suitable for your needs. Breakfast and lunch was also provided."

This class actually focuses on what matters and you can tell they are extremely passionate at what they do. It was a great experience and I'm glad I did it! Walked out of there feeling confident and informed. No other class out there will offer you the hands on training like 2A does."

Female Client in Alachua County

"For anyone looking to obtain their concealed carry permit, I highly recommend 2A Tactical and Training. The instructors were professional and informative. They had an answer to every question we had and made sure that we were comfortable (and felt safe) with the gun we chose to shoot during class."

Female Client in Jacksonville

I never fired a firearm prior and I was extremely nervous but their patience and professional attitude helped put me at ease. I'm looking forward to continued training." 

Female client in Jacksonville

"I cannot say enough great things about what a terrific experience this class was. Thought provoking, real life situation based training that helps you understand the seriousness of gun ownership and the consequences that can occur. The thoroughness of the program was exceptional, covering all aspects of safety , laws in Florida, and legal responsibility. Taught in a homey atmosphere with people who have literally been on those front lines and have faced circumstances themselves , this is the best training you can find. And you get to shoot all kinds of weapons ! Mike and Scott will make sure you find the best weapon for you. They will make sure you are comfortable handling it and understand how it works. You simply cannot ask for better training. Great ladies only and private classes for groups available too. If you are wanting to learn to shoot and feel comfortable handling a weapon, you need this class. You won’t find a better one!"

Female Client in Tampa

"5 Stars!"

Female Client in Lake City

"You're not gonna find a better class than the class that 2A gives. You get 2 certified instructors, one that knows the laws and a retired law enforcement officer. When you are finished with the class you not only have your training and can readily apply for your CWP but you will also know the type of carry gun you wish to purchase. Well done Mike and Scott."

Client in Alachua

"Highly recommend Mike and Scott for your concealed weapon and active shooter class. I learned so much and they were very patient and encouraging with the big party we had! Awesome experience!" 

Female Client in Bradford County

"Had a great experience with Mike and Scott. They were welcoming and didn’t make you feel like any question was a bad question especially for someone like myself who hadn’t even picked up a gun before. I’m now confident in my ability to use a firearm. I will recommend to all my friends and I feel that I can always come back to them with any questions."

Mike and Scott are really down to earth and easy going, however, they are serious about giving you the knowledge and training you need to keep you and others around you safe.

"We had a great experience! Mike and Scott are professionals and were very patient and encouraging with someone like me that didn’t know much about guns. I left feeling confident and they allowed me to try multiple guns to find the best one for me. If you’re very experienced or a novice like me you will benefit from their knowledge. Highly recommend! Also, thanks for an amazing lunch!"

"My family of 4 had an AMAZING time @ 2A Tactical and Training!! My husband and I took the CWFL course. It was informative, professional, and super engaging. The in home setting added a level of hospitality that can't be found in other places.

My husband is a total gun lover and I am more of a newbie and the instructors tailored the course to meet each of our needs. This included some great activities/lessons for our kids too! My 12 year old daughter was able to overcome her fear of shooting and my 10 yr old son had a blast learning gun safety, to have a healthy respect for how powerful different guns can be, and the hands on time where the kids were able to shoot a couple different guns.

Both my husband and I were able to try out a variety of guns to see which guns suited us best. There was even time to shoot a little for fun!

The CWFL course was truly excellent and is suitable to any experience level. You will learn something new and you won't be disappointed!"

Female Client in Live Oak

"Fantastic course! I gained more knowledge and understanding about firearms in this one-day class than in my entire military career. Mike and Scott’s extensive experience in the use of firearms and knowledge of the laws regulating their use, made this course so interesting and valuable for me. And they take the time to explain everything in laymen terms that’s easy to understand. I was totally impressed! If you are seeking a concealed carry permit, but never fired a handgun before, no worries. Mike and Scott will patiently guide you through on how to handle and fire a gun confidently and safely. I highly recommend 2A – you won’t be disappointed!" 

Client in Ponte Vedra Beach

"I attended this class as a fairly experienced shooter and still walked away with critical knowledge that I did not have before this class. Mike and Scott are both extremely knowledgeable and experienced in shooting and training. I was impressed with the personal attention I was given to make sure my experience was the best it could be. This is a must attend if you are considering a concealed carry option in the future, or if you need a refresher in laws and practical daily action in the world as we know it today. I came away with a fresh perspective on personal protection and renewed mindset for how to best protect my family in the future. I HIGHLY recommend 2A Tactical and Training."

Female Client in High Springs

"Party of 9! Although my husband and I have our concealed permits already , we contacted Mike and asked if he could put on a family class to include active shooter training. I have 3 adult children and their spouses who all needed the class, we also included our 14 yr old daughter in both classes! In today’s climate it is so important to educate your children and make sure they understand personal safety,gun safety and the laws! We all learned so much and had the absolute best time! Mike and Scott are so knowledgeable. I think we all shot 5 or six different types of guns picked specifically for each of us based on comfort and need! As wonderful as Mike and Scott are the real Star of this team is Lillian! Lillian is Mikes wife/ boss lol...The most amazing hostess and chef... she might even shoot better than Mike!! I recommend everyone sign up now, bring the family and friends!!"
