What they say

Below are testimonials from a few of our satisfied students

I took DPS-101 yesterday from Dave Jenkins’ Rochester Personal Defense school. The training took place over at the Genesee Conservation League facility in Rochester, NY. Let me tell you folks something… this is the best money that you can spend. Dave and his team of instructors did a terrific job.You are getting top flight training with a very low student to instructor ratio assuring that every mistake in technique will be identified and addressed by someone who has professional training. That is worth its weight in gold. You simply can’t know what you are doing wrong alone. You need outside help.Another thing is you can’t learn a motor skill from books or online. You have to actually DO IT. And the DPS-101 class has you DOING things that you may not even be able to do anywhere else.They start you with normal in class learning about techniques, the law, and other interesting things. I won’t give away all that they teach. You have to sign up to find out. They use a building block system and start from simple things getting more and more complex as you go along.By the end of the day you will be, in a single sequence, identifying a threat, moving, barking loud verbal commands, drawing your gun, barking more verbal commands, aiming, firing, clearing malfunctions, moving, scanning, barking commands, firing, moving, scanning, doing tactical reload, barking commands, moving, firing, scanning, tactical reload, moving, scanning, reholstering. <—- I did exactly that in one fairly smooth set of events during one training exercise.Now if you think you can DO that by reading about it you are a heck of a lot better than I am. I can’t. I had to be trained step by step and go through dozens of mistakes with one of the 4 instructors jumping in and stopping me to tell me what I was doing wrong and how to fix it. These skills can only be learned through actual experience.There are other excellent schools and instructors. But you won’t find many better than these guys and gals. And you certainly won’t find a better VALUE for your training dollar. If there other courses are like this one, folks in the Rochester area have an INVALUABLE resource. Don’t hesitate to take advantage of it… or maybe one day it won’t be there. I can guarantee you that I will take advantage of it. I only wish we had something like this in Buffalo. But for now this is at least 150 mile training. Because I will travel over 150 miles to get more!! PS… This message was not compensated or in any way solicited by Dave or his team. It is my personal opinion and my praise is offered because it was earned.

Defensive Pistol Skills 101 (DPS101)

I recently took Dave’s Defensive Firearms Skills 1 and 2 class and have to commend Dave, and his staff, on a highly professional, yet easy going and fun training session. Dave and his team presented the information in a clear, easy to understand manner with the intensity needed to make all crucial skill sets known. Defensive firearms skills are not a subject to take light hearted or as a game, and Dave made that point clear. What is unique about Dave is that he can present very serious information in a manner that nails the important points across yet keeps you laughing all day and doesn’t make you uncomfortable. For me, a 26 year old female, I was shy at first, and I was hesitant to take the class because I didn’t want to be bombarded by people trying to convince me that I should carry my firearm. It has been something I’ve been considering and this class definitely helped me feel more confident in myself to where, if I would decide to carry, I would know how to properly use my firearm and make it a tool of protection and not harm. Dave makes you comfortable and dose not enforce his views on you, he is there to help you learn what you need to to make the right decision for you and you alone. You can tell he truly cares! I highly recommend this class for anyone person who carries, is considering carrying or is just interested in getting into shooting. Thanks again Dave, this class helped build my self confidence and my shooting skills!

Hey Dave, I just wanted to say thanks for a great class last night. My wife and dad both thoroughly enjoyed it as well. This class cemented my interest in getting my permit if for no other reason than to take all of your defensive handgun classes. I thought the material and way it was presented was done so in a very professional manner and despite it being a 3 hour lecture, kept me interested and engaged the entire time. I am still on the fence regarding carrying: a personal choice I will need to work out for myself after more training, but I feel as if I’m much better equipped to approach that decision after taking this class. Looking forward to the next class!

Hi Mike! We just wanted to say THANK YOU! My husband has not stopped talking about the course since Saturday, he had so much fun, learned so much, and can’t wait to do many more courses with you. I had a great time as well. I was pretty nervous before hand and even in the beginning of the course mainly due to my pregnancy but some to do with only shooting once before a few weeks prior to the course and I have to say I had such a great time, my favorite part was shooting. I learned so much and would love to take another course with you once the baby has arrived. One of my girlfriends took the same course last year with you and she loved it as well. I felt so relaxed and really enjoyed myself, you and Don (correct me if I forgot his name) did such a great job. I didn’t feel intimidated or judged I really took everything and learned from it and honestly I would have done the 150 rounds instead of the 50 if I wasn’t pregnant….. its funny because the next day after the course I found myself sitting on the couch and having a craving for shooting at the range. Thank You so much again. Take Care.
