Tac Carbine / Pistol May 2011
Simon- Thank you very much for an awesome course. I could not of been happier with how it turned out, short of my Sig issues. I think you did a great job of instructing us, while letting the class develop their own methods based on them and their experiences.
Force On Force Class April 2011
There are many great points that came from this class, too long to write about. I had a great time. Everyone in the class was great company, enthusiastic and it was a pleasure, for me, to meet everyone.
I can not even begin to thank Simon, Will and Terry for all the instruction. These men are some of the best instructors that I have ever had the privilege of meeting…and I have met a lot in my years. They have walked the walk and can give a powerful class. If they offer this class again, I would definitely suggest that you attend it, especially if you are serious about carrying a handgun for personal defense.
Force On Force Class April 2011
Thanks again, Will, Terry, Simon and Vince….You guys were so awesome in explaining everything! I learned a lot and know I still have a lot more to learn. Some things I jotted down during class:
1.Training is NOT a game.
2. Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Don't forget to watch your 6:00!
3. Keep moving! Don't stop!
4. You will make split second decisions, right or wrong.
5. Impressive actions by other students help you learn too!!
I hope to see you all again soon for more training! I also hope to see my new friends, the students that took this class. A great bunch of people!! Thank you all!!! If you have not taken this class before, consider taking it!! I am so impressed and so happy I took the plunge!
Intro to Carbine Sept 2010
Once again Will you've done an outstanding job. I came into this class with no idea of what a carbine was (I think that was one of my dumb questions) nor any interest in owning one. After 2 hours I knew the essential parts of the weapon from front to back and why they function they way they do. Still could give a rat's butt about owning and shooting one though - until you taught a couple of stances in the classroom and took us to the range. I had no idea shooting a longer gun would be so much fun. I really feel that the depth of teaching and training you provided prior to the range made my time on the range that much more relaxed and enjoyable.
I hate to say this but if you run across a really good deal on a 9mm AK or AR please keep me in mind.
Every gun owner - experienced or not - would benefit from any course you teach. Thanks again and I'll see you Saturday.

I would like to extend my appreciation to Will Farrugia and the Instructors at Florida Firearms Training. I took the series of Advanced Defensive Handgun Courses and I am very satisfied with the training that was provided. The instructors are at the top of their profession, with attention being made to the individual and the group. Safety was the theme throughout all of the courses, and additional instruction was given to shooting on the move, shot placement, shooting from cover and being able to use a strategy to take the fight to the finish. We used various range facilities, and the techniques taught are based on a building block principle. They emphasized technique over speed, and practice, practice, practice. They took the time in all of the courses to provide one on one instruction to ensure the skills you are learning are understood and how they all fit together. I would highly recommend

Tactical Carbine 1 Review March 2010
I participated in the Tactical Carbine Course. While not new to shooting a rifle, Handling a Semi Auto Carbine was a new skill I needed to develop. The instructors were very experienced and provided instruction in handling techniques, but also shooting from cover, shooting on the move, and shot placement. Time was taken to develop skills to shoot out to 100 yards, and safety was the underlying theme through out the course. If you want to develop a solid foundation to safely handle a tactical carbine, this course will certainly introduce these skills to you.

Handgun Intro Course Review March 09:
My husband and I were in your class the morning of the 5th. We so much enjoyed your style of teaching. I have been in classes before but nothing compares to your way of delivery...fun, interesting and thorough. A few of our friends say they will call to attend your class. One may call this week... She is dreadfully afraid of guns but wants to learn to be less afraid and become licensed. I told her to share this fear with you. You may also hear from the ******* family later on.
Advanced Concealed Carry Class Review Jan 09:
From the moment I walked into Will’s Advanced Carry Course I had the feeling this course was going to be different from the all the others. The Instructor oozed with real world experience and was not just another NRA Handgun Instructor. Will has a keen grasp on the subject. This course is not to designed to teach you the finer aspects of target practice but is structured to teach one how to win the fight. After all Concealed Carry is not about target practice, although it is nice to hit what you are aiming at, Concealed Carry is a self defense strategy that is inherently designed to save your life and protect your loved ones in a life and death situation. A fight to save your life can not and must not be a fair fight, you must have the edge to win and Will instructs his students in the techniques required to gain that split second edge that can mean the difference between life and death. You must want to be the one walking away after your weapon is deployed. With Will’s emphasis on real world situations and teaching his techniques to overcome the odds, this course offers the new, inexperienced, handgun owner the opportunity to practice techniques that may save their life. I have always said it is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it, the same can be said for proper training and practice methods. Perfect Practice Makes Permanent. I plan on taking all the training this man and his associates have to offer.

Just a short note to thank you for all the help and guidance I received from your instructor, Dan, during last week's defensive pistol class. I had a great time and learned so much……I never realized how much more I could achieve with proper direction. Thanks again, I’ll be back…….”no alibis” next time!

I took an introductory tactical course with Will and Drew last week, and had a great time. First I have to say when I went to the class I thought I was a great shooter, as I always do really well on the range. Shooting with you made me realize how much there really is to learn, and that punching holes in paper is easy, shooting realistically isn’t. I’ve already signed up for more advanced tactical courses By the way guys loved the “stress fire” drill, but we've got to do two laps next time Drew.

Hi Will, Wanted to let you know how happy I am with the training I received from one of your instructors. Two weeks ago I had 2 hours of private instruction with Paul to help my shot placement with my new Glock17. I was having trouble with pulling all of my shots to the left, and as we shot I could see my shot placement improving, more and more. He helped me diagnose and fix the problem, all while having a great time. Thanks again.

My wife and I recently attended a tactical course with Will. It was amazing. We had both thought that 4 hours was going to be a bit long, but realized that it wasn’t long enough at all. We have now signed up for the Tac 2 and Tac 3 classes…If we have one complaint it was there was too much information to absorb. Had an amazing time Will!
Howard and Rena (Coral Springs)
Will, I had a great time in your Advanced Concealed Carry Course with your instructor Paul and am glad I took all those notes. I estimated that he saved me almost $800 (and maybe my life) by showing me how I can easily conceal and use my current gun, without having to buy another smaller one. The class would have been worth it just for that, but with everything else, it was amazing. I am looking forward to taking the Tactical class.

Hey guys, I don’t know if you remember us but I came in with my wife and two daughters for your introduction to firearms class, last month. I just wanted to say thanks, it was so informative. I’ve been shooting for the past 20 years and still learned a thing (or two) but my wife and daughters had always been afraid of guns…..not any more! Great job! Thanks Again.
