I attended this class this past Saturday and I can't be any happier. Prior to the class I had only shot a gun once during my conceal carry permit class. I left this class feeling better prepared and more confident when it comes to having to handle or shoot a gun. Terry, Andy and Shawn were the instructors of the class and they were very knowledgeable and patient throughout. I will definitely be taking more classes with them. I highly recommend. Keep up the good work guys..!!

I recently took tactical pistol one with Andy and could not have been happier. I've been shooting pistol competitively since I was a teenager, and but haven't been shooting regularly. I assumed this level 1 would be a good refresher, but it truly exceeded my expectations. It provided a phenomenally comprehensive review of fundamental handgun skills, ensuring you're where you need to be to develop further as a tactical shooter. I particularly appreciated the methodical approach to learning how to properly navigate malfunctions. Andy and his team adapt to the skill level and needs of every shooter on the line- providing the unique coaching necessary for each shooter's abilities. I felt 100 percent safe the entire time, and was very impressed with the TFA team's safety procedures.

I fully intend to complete all of the Tactical courses Andy and TFA offer. If you've been shooting for years, or if you're brand new, this course is equally valuable for all. I've taken a great many tactical courses over the years, and I can genuinely say Andy's is the best from any angle you look at it- quality of training, safety, facility, and environment are all top notch. I'll be finishing this review and signing up for Tactical Pistol II.

Straightforward with no bull. I just completed the Pistol Tact I course this weekend (3/23) and was blown away by the knowledge and training received. Andy and the other instructors focused on teaching at the student's experience level. It was a wakeup call to see the bad habits come out during the drills. I would highly recommend this course for anyone that's serious about learning the tactical pistol fundamentals. Kudos to TFA!

One of the best firearms training groups in South Florida and they teach just about anything that you could want to learn.
The instructor cadre is highly experienced and knowledgeable in their fields of expertise. I first found out about TFA around 7 or 8 years ago and have never had a negative experience with them.
They are very professional and safety conscious and are properly trained and experienced in first aid if you turn an ankle or something when performing shooting drills. As with any training program safety is the main priority here and they have an excellent safety record.
If your looking for high quality firearms training, you will definitely want to talk to TFA about what classes you are interested in. The beginners classes are a great value and teach the skills that are neccessary for the more advanced courses. Firearms training is fun and builds off the basic skill set and muscle memory. But if the basic skills are flawed you will have issues with your skills later on. But if your serious and pay attention to what is being taught in the class you are going to be an effective shooter when you are finished with your class.
Even if you have been shooting for years ever instructor is different and have different backgrounds. You will most likely learn something new or some different shooting drills that you might not have done before. Or pick up a few new skills to practice on the range when not taking a class. TFA is definitely one of the better firearms training academies in South Florida and have some very impressive resumes as firearms instructors ranging from military, law enforcement and some are also FDLE instructors and have a lifetime of experience to offer their students.
Even if you have taken just about every firearms course offered from your local gun shop you can still learn a ton from their classes.
