"Excellent training and facilities."


Bruce B | September 6, 2015
"Daniel Hutson (aka, Runt) was an excellent instructor with in-depth knowledge of CCW laws, practical application thereof, and techniques. I feel much more comfortable and confident that I understand the rules and restrictions related to the concealed carry of firearms in NM. I also learned so much more about the proper handling of handguns, marksmanship and the proper drawing and firing procedures that I'm much less likely to endanger either myself or anyone else. The class was very worthwhile and thoroughly recommended for all handgun owners. thanks!"


Ronald G. | September 5, 2015
"Runt did a great job with the information he needed to pass on plus a few other stories to keep you interested in class. I think it would be helpful when you preregister on line for class if it was mentioned about pre registering for the electronic fingerprinting so you could get there earlier so that everyone doesn't have to wait for the computer to free up so you could register.Other than that everything was great, Thanks."


Daniel G. | September 4, 2015
"My wife and I took a private instruction class from Jimmy, a dedicated multifaceted instructor. He was incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and explained everything in a way that it all made sense. I look forward to receiving more instruction from this wealth of information in the future."


Habib C. | Dec 4, 2014
"I spent two years and three months in Pakistan, I must confess that training and practice at Calibers saved my life. Jimmy is a great trainer at Calibers although I only worked with him, there must be other great trainers there, as well."


Rick B. | November 27, 2013
My personal training session was awesome! After an hour of classroom time, I also received a fair amount of range time. Compared to using the city outdoor range, Calibers is a nice change.


January 23, 2012
Awesome place! I've taken firearms classes here and they were a ton of fun! The staff is really awesome, polite, and very friendly.


May 27, 2011
Great class, very useful for getting complete newbies on their feet. Getting to fire a variety of guns in the range was really useful.
