Pat,

Thanks so much for the vast amount of knowledge you shared with us this weekend! You and your son are remarkable! I appreciate your guidance and patience with me. 
However, you did not give us the information on how to purchase your book! When you have time, could you let me know how to purchase it?
Thanks so much!

Dear Pat, Patrick, and staff;
 
I just wanted to let you all know how much I enjoyed your class on March 23, 2014.
I was introduced to firearms a bit over a year ago, and have been shooting every few
weeks since then. I had thought myself a competent shooter, but I feel much more 
confident after finally having formal training with you. I definitely could have sat through
a sixteen hour course with Pat and Patrick, and I look forward to taking an advanced 
pistol course with you guys soon. The information and skills you guys shared with 
us are invaluable, and I hope I will never need to put them to use. Keep up the great work!
 
Thank you all again, for a great experience.

I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed the gun class I attended on April 13th at Cabelaís and the range time on April 14th.   I thought your training class was very interesting and comprehensive, and the videos and real life scenarios you presented were excellent.  In addition,  the range time/practice greatly improved my comfort level with handling the gun safely and firing safely.   I will definitely recommend your class to anyone I know who is interested in completing a concealed handgun training class.

 

Thanks again.

Dear Pat and Pat,
 
I just wanted to thank you both for a great weekend class a couple weeks ago.  You made the class interesting and I really enjoyed it.  I also really enjoyed the range time.  I will tell anyone I meet who is looking for a CCW class to definitely take it from you. 
 
I have looked at your NE State Defense Force website and it looks like a good organization.  I think you have a lot of good ideas.  Thanks also to your organization for assisting with the range time.
 
You run a great organization and a great class.
 
Thanks again,
 
Chris Rath

Patrick Sr., and Patrick Jr.

I cannot thank you enough for the way you treated my wife Connie during
your just concluded class.  As far as I am concerned you both went far
and away above what was expected, and for that we are both grateful.
 
In addition I want to tell you both that you are consummate professionals
in what you do, and that most certainly effects your students in a most
positive way.  Put simply, you're both the best at what you do, a measure
for all others.
 
Again Pat, many thanks, and as for me; I look forward to seeing you next
spring (for the advanced class).

Pat,

I wanted to take the time to personally thank you for the instruction you gave during last weeks class. I really had a great time, and learned a lot. I was impressed with how you handled questions during class and how you took the time to help students that were struggling with the shooting qualifier on day two. These two things are just to name a couple of the items that confirmed to me that I had made the right decision to take your class over some of the others offered in the Omaha Metro area. It seems that you really care about your students and how well they do...as well as how they will handle themselves after they receive their CHP. I left knowing this is truly a responsibility, not just a right. You both are an asset to the industry and I hope to be able to take additional classes with you both in the future.

 

All the best,

Rob Dickson

On behalf of my wife Sam and I, we just wanted to, again, say thank you for the fine instructional class and range time this weekend. I just canít say enough, how much we enjoyed and appreciated the class. We both learned so much about everything from securing our home, to gun laws, rights as gun owners and of course gun safety, etc. We truly appreciated the experience. We will certainly refer anyone we know to you for instruction and training.

Thank you again,

Bill and Samantha Fleck

Dear Gun-Safe Academy staff,

This is Danny Coleman I took your Concealed Carry Permit class in October of 2011 on November 4, 2011. I applied for my CCW permit and I received my permit on the January 06, 2012.  

Patrick I want to take this time to thank you and Patrick Jr. for the fantastic job you two do, not only in the classroom setting, but also out on the range. You two are rated at the top of your class, for what you do, not only by me but from some of the people that I come in contact with as I go through my daily routine. I really enjoyed taking your class. Because of your class I feel more comfortable and confident in carrying my weapon, and it motivate me to take my new position in this matter seriously, and it also motivates me to keep up with the current laws.

I want you know that I appreciate you and Pat Jr. for what you two are doing and I will never forget the two days that I spent with you two.

Thanks again

Danny E. Coleman.

I took this course August 13-14-2011 thinking I would probably not learn much, as I am an old Vietnam vet with the 26th Marines.  However I entered this class with an open mind, and paid attention.


Not only did I learn the law, but learned a shooting style that put 26 out of 30 in a group the size of your fist!  Never done that before! These guys are the best of the best, even if they are Army!

Dear Patrick,

I feel compelled to write to you concerning your Gun-Safe Academy course of instruction.  In my estimation the course itself is superb, and you and Patrick Jr. did an outstanding job in teaching us what is necessary to acquire a Nebraska Concealed Handgun Permit.  I have already told a number of people my thoughts concerning you folks and your course of instruction.  Also, I was quite impressed with your graciousness toward the oldest gentleman of the class.  Pat Jr., I believe, went out of his way to make that senior citizen feel comfortable during the two days of instruction.

I commend you and yours for holding such a fine course of instruction.

Dear Mr. Smith:
 
I want to thank you for the excellent class you and your son taught.  I took the Jan 27-28 class and was most impressed with the quality of the education you presented.  My expectations (were) exceeded.  I felt that the material and presentation were of excellent quality and will (and have) recommended your class to my friends.

Mr. Smith,

I received my CCW today, it took a little longer than 3 weeks. I imagine that they are receiving more applications than they expected.

Good class, good range and good instructors.

Thank you.

I want to take a moment to thank both Patrick Smith and his son Patrick Smith Jr. for the opportunity of taking their CCW class.  The materials were informative, interesting and detailed. The practical manner of instruction was enhanced by the expertise and positive demeanor of both.  I would sincerely recommend this course.

Thank you, Patrick, for the great course. It made getting the CCW permit a breeze.  I was most impressed by the way you helped some of the students,  who were not as experienced or capable, to get through the course. I appreciated your focus on safety.  Thank you also for the flexibility in scheduling my friend another time after being in a car accident enroute to the shooting portion of the course. He appreciated the card. Good luck, and God bless.

Pat, thank you and your son for a superb course of instruction dealing mainly in SAFETY and how to be responsible if carrying a concealed firearm.  I have been a NRA member for years and learned things from you I wasn't aware of all those years.  I will be recommending your course to all who inquire about how to obtain a permit.  Again, thank you much.

I've just completed the CCW course with Patrick Smith and Patrick Jr., these two gentlemen are to be commended for the work and dedication they have to the concealed weapons course, as well as their efforts to train others in handling a concealed weapon.  Their classroom time was very enlightening, with questions and answers as well as opinions that brought attention to the situations and scenarios that I had not even thought of.  (Mr. Smith said; No matter what you will learn something in this class.)  Their professionalism and utmost safety concerns in the class and on the shooting range made me feel safe, even around others that were shooting.  Good job to both of you guys, I recommend your training seminar to anyone that wants to learn how to handle a concealed weapon.  Thank you for your time, the pleasure was all mine!October 29, 2008

Having just completed your CCW class, I wanted you to know how great of a class I thought it was.  I found myself wishing it was 2 full days of instruction, because thereís just so much good information to attain.  The class size and opportunity for interactive exchanges was fantastic.

Again, thanks for all the education shared.  Iíll be applying for my CCW permit tomorrow.  Having taken your class, I will be much more prepared to defend myself, my family, and potentially others as well, should the need arise.  God willing, Iíll see you again in 10 years, because I think your training is superb! 

Best Regards,

Jim Schultze
