What People Say About Us

Highly Recommend, Reasonably Priced, Awesome Instructor!

It's unlikely anyone else in the Austin area is more capable than Bill Agnell.  He has years of experience with the CHL program, ...  His presentation was lively, personalized and mixed with real live examples from years as a CHL/NRA instructor.  Upon completion, you'll have confidence in knowing CHL law, weapon safety, self-defense and conflict avoidance.

“Very professional, courteous, efficient process." 

"Bill knows what he's doing and I appreciated his level of professionalism. The course was comprehensive and Bill took the time to explain everything in detail, but we were able to move through all requirements comfortably ahead of schedule. I'm sure the classes are great also, but I opted for an individual private lesson. I would highly recommend the 1-1 experience. We started in the morning and were finished right after lunch. I can't imagine a better process for licensing.

“Bill is very professional, engaged in his work,"

"He provides a great class. He's got a website with all the information. You take the class, do a written exam, then go to the range in Manor and do the firearm test. All 8 of us in my class passed, it seems like almost everyone passes. You can either do the DPS paperwork before or after you take the class. He signs a form and gives it to you to mail in. Bill keeps up to date with all the changes in the law. He's very good about answering questions.”
