What our students say about TDI.

October 2019

I’ve been in law enforcement for 18 years and Level 1-3 handgun is the best handgun course I’ve ever taken. Their instructors are top notch, the courses of fire will improve all shooters, and their method of teaching is highly applicable to combat shooting. I highly recommend TDI.

Thank you very much for a great weekend. I was just in your handgun I – III class September 6-9th. Your team is very thorough, patient, and instructive. I hope that I am able to improve on what you and your team has taught me. I hope to join your team again and learn and relearn what I have already learned.

I wanted to take a minute to thank you and your staff for the amazing experience that my son and I had the pleasure to be a part of this past weekend.  We’ve taken a few classes in the past but none were as comprehensive, enjoyable, and more importantly beneficial than HG I-III. I truly couldn’t think of one thing your staff could have done better.  I pride myself on having a pretty good crew here and I commend you on putting together a great staff because I know how hard it is. I’m not going to blow a lot of smoke but I’ll give you the ultimate compliment – we’ll see you again soon.

 Regards,

I wanted to let you John Benner know that my son, Xander, and I thoroughly enjoyed Tac Rifle I.  In addition, I was happy to see that TDI still offers absolutely topnotch training, and that its instructors are the best.  I can’t wait to come back for Handgun V in October.

I think you guys are the best! 

Cheers, Nick

I just can’t say enough good things about your instructors.  You’ve really put together a super team of great folks!

Next year I hope to coordinate schedules with my son  and get him out for Pistol Fundamentals, Partner Tactics, and Tac Rifle II and III. 

Thanks again for great instruction and a great time.

The instructors were amazing, they instruct you on a very personal basis. TDI grounds were way above and beyond our expectations. John and his staff are extremely knowledgeable No complaints whatsoever.

Not long ago I was at Shoot Point Blank practicing the Malfunction Drill Forrest Sonewald taught us at this last Buckeye Blast.  All the other shooters around me were blasting away as fast as they could, while I just shot once, went through a malfunction clearance then back on target.  I put about 75 rounds down that way and my last 10 I did 2 to the chest one to the head til empty. I finished grabbed my gear turned around and the Range officer was looking at me nodded slightly and with an approving smile on his face that said, “Now that’s training!”  

John, Thanks again for your incredible staff.
