We spend a lot of time training under ideal conditions. But we also train in low light or no light conditions as well, knowing that bad things happen at night as often, indeed more often, than during the day. What about when it gets cold? How efficient are you when shooting with gloves on? How do you carry your concealed weapon when you're bundled up in layers to guard against the cold? Can you access your weapon underneath that thick sweater and wool coat? read more

Thank you for a wonderful class yesterday. It was a genuine pleasure meeting Jake. He is unquestionably a very accomplished, high-level instructor who has many years of practical and competitive shooting experience and teaching skills. He has obviously trained with the very best of the best, and he himself is quite obviously the very best of the best.
Jake quickly assesses the skill level of the student, and tailors his training for that student so that at the end of training, the student is a better shooter and has a myriad of techniques that, with practice, will ensure that the student becomes a better more accurate shooter. He is obviously well focused on all aspects of shooting including the most important aspect, safety.
My only regret is that I did not get to meet Crystal. We exchanged numerous e- mails prior to the class, she was always excellent in her accuracy and communication skills and it was always a pleasure to communicate with her. All in all, after looking at all qualities of your training, it is very clear to me that the north country is very lucky to have such high level training readily available that is provided at a very low price by outstanding, talented and skillful individuals.
I will not hesitate to recommend you folks to anyone looking for training.
Best Regards, Wayne R. Urso

When preparing for Master Firearms Instructor certification I wanted to some "advanced" coaching, I chose Jake and Crystal at Raven. Their massive experience, technical knowledge and excellent coaching methods are second to none, anywhere. As an experienced firearms instructor I will continue to visit Raven to learn and enjoy the experience these great guys provide, I highly recommend that you do too.
Crystal at Raven Firearms Training set up a 1 on 1 pistol class for my 13 year old daughter this week. I can't say enough about how accommodating, professional and safe Crystal was with arranging and conducting the class. Her down to earth approach and friendly personality made us feel very comfortable. Crystal knows her subject matter thoroughly and presents it in manageable steps. It was obvious she was gauging my daughter's progress and would only advance when she felt that "all the building blocks were in a row". There was a large selection of pistols and revolvers to try out. This would help someone in deciding what direction to go if purchasing a handgun, as well as expanding one's knowledge of what is available to modern shooters. The range facilities were clean and well maintained. Even the picnic tables adorned with military olive drab paint and RFT logo were spiffy and clean. Nice touch!
When finances allow, I will be back for some instruction myself. Hopefully I will get a chance to meet Jake. Crystal and Jake have put together a quality product. We are very fortunate to have instruction of this caliber (pun intended) available to us here in the North Country. The low rates they charge make it affordable for the average person. If anybody is thinking about taking a firearms safety/skills course, this is the place. You will not regret the investment.
As former U.S. Marines, I want to thank Jake and Crystal for their service to our Country. This is one business that local communities will be happy to support. Keep up the great work.
Thank you for the wonderful one-on-one handgun training yesterday. What a productive and informative session! You obviously have a tremendously high level of expertise and experience with handguns and with instructional methods. Even though I have handled firearms in the past I was not comfortable with my handgun abilities. Your teaching style and patience improved my skills and confidence a lot. I really appreciate the emphasis on safety, too! I am looking forward to bringing my daughters for your training in the future.
Many thanks again.
