Student Testimonials

Why I took the Basic Handgun Safety class for Women. My hands were shaking with my first encounter with a .22 Revolver and I don't believe I even hit the target with the first 3 bullets I was allocated. I grew up with guns in the house and I was sternly taught to stay away from them. With the gentle and highly professional guidance of our instructor Kristina and our coach Libby, I tried various calibers and by the end of the class, I was shooting a .357 Magnum. Now, ladies, I don't think I hit the target with that either. But, I'm going back and taming that monster of a puppy and this time, I will hit the bulls eye! Like my father, who won many sharp shooting awards. I too want to see if I have the ability to successfully compete on a pistol league. As a mom who is 58 years young with a 25 year old son, target shooting will provide us with something in common and endless hours of topics for discussion and range enjoyment. Insights Training Center, is a highly professional and clean facility where safety is of utmost importance and an individual can receive exceptional and sustainable safety training. Many thanks goes out to Kristina and her coach Libby. Their professionalism, patience, and kindness were most appreciated.    ~ Raye S., Kirkland, WA
