Thank you very much for the private lesson today.
I learned more from you in one hour than I did in 3-4 days at Front Sight in Nevada.
Thanks again for everything, and see you next Tuesday afternoon.

I couldn't be more satisfied with our time at Top Gun. I brought my daughters in for a class with David. Very nice facility, and professional staff. David was great, and they had an awesome time! Thanks again!


We don't know anything about guns, so getting the hour of instruction was definitely worth it. David Price was EXCELLENT! He did a really good job of giving us quick instructions in safe gun handling, and he made my wife (who was terrified of guns) much more comfortable about them. I definitely recommend Top Gun. They make you feel welcome and comfortable, even for beginners like us!


My daughter and I have been taking instruction from David Price for several weeks, following the basic pistol class where we met. David's high level of expertise, experience and wisdom has established a fascinating learning environment for us. He combines a level of sensitivity with the reality of self defense, leading us into the real world of self protection, having great fun in the process. I love his sense of humor! We feel we have the brass ring of instructors. You are truly amazing in every respect. Thank you David, looking forward to all you have planned for us in the coming months.


David, I received my initial training from my department. A friend recommended you for some additional training. I must say I feel more prepared than ever! You're an excellent training officer. I look forward to working with you again. Thank You.


David Price who helped us figure out where our skills needed to be fine tuned. We got exactly what we wanted, and more than we expected. We learned great techniques that improved our performance and self confidence when we shoot. We feel extremely prepared and confident with our new found knowledge and training.

I deal with teachers every day and you have all the best qualities of a teacher, patience, knowledge, understanding and the ability to explain things without sounding condescending!


My husband surprised me on our 4th anniversary to a trip to the shooting range. We've never shot before so we got instruction from David Price. I could not have had a better experience! He was helpful, nice, funny, and overall a great person for the job. We had a blast shooting and would make a special trip back to Arnold just to do it again.
