What our Students Say

LAW ENFORCEMENT / MILITARY

"Just attended the January class taught by STR. Great day 1 review of the basic fundamentals of shooting. Day 2, we built from there with wounded drills, team movement, and a great Combat Mindset lecture! Day 3....we hit the gym for an intro to Krav Maga and applied what we had learned in force on force. Excellent venue and top notch instruction...right here on the Central Coast!"
– Douglas Scotto, Detective

 

"This was by far the best three days of training I have been exposed to in ten years of law enforcement.  This class will not only help you survive, but to thrive during any critical incident.  Instructors Steve Odom and John Marrs are on point, great job guys."
-Caleb Kemp, San Luis Obispo Police Department Sergeant.

 

“I attended the January 2011 session of the tactical handgun class at STR. I have never been to a course that did such a good job of incorporating marksmanship fundamentals with dynamic tactics and combatives all in one class. In this course you will get off the square range and take on some advanced gun fighting skills that will push you to the next level. Practice the skills and tactics that will let you not only survive and win, but dominate a critical incident. This class stressed wounded drills, malfunction clearances and support side shooting, all areas that are usually lacking during in-service training. I appreciated the professional instruction from John and Steve who promised busy training days with a lot of range time. This class does not disappoint. I would recommend this class to any law enforcement/military personnel who carries a gun in the line of duty.”

- Paul Uhl, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department  


CIVILIANS

"Spartan's was the best basic training course I've attended. I've been to quite a few training courses and this was by far the most informative. The guys make training exciting and fun. If you're female & you're nervous about taking a class definitely come see these guys. They'll take good care of you!"

- Natalie Foster, Creator & CEO, Girl's Guide to Guns

 

"Essential training for anyone who intends to use a handgun for protection of themselves and their family."

- Steve Hopper, Sr. Security Trainer

 

"This is a great class that should be a requirement for anyone who owns a gun or has one in their home. You will leave feeling more comfortable with your weapon system and how to operate it in a safe and effective way. The instructors are thorough and patient with their instruction."

- Alexis Rubatzky, Warrior Princess***

          *** (While STR can not attest to Alexis' royal blood lines, we can in fact confirm she IS a warrior)

 

"Bring it on! I want more! I've never attended any "Formal" type of course before. Prior to this class I had some "very limited" knowledge of guns. I considered myself a danger to self and others. At the conclusion of the class, I am confident in myself and my equipment."

- A. Porras, Sheriff's Dispatcher

 

"Steve and John were very articulate and illustrative in their teaching, and very thorough & great with corrections on the range. I started the day really scared of guns and unsure of how I would perform with everyone watching. (Stage Fright!) I ended the day feeling great, not just competent, about my skills and now I want more! This is a must have for anyone who lives with a gun, owns a gun, or knows anyone who has a gun!"

- Geri Ooi, San Luis Obispo

"I don't know how to put this but they're kind of a big deal. They're very important. They have many leatherbound books and their apartment smells of rich mahogany"

- Ron Burgundy, Anchorman
