My wife and I took lessons with Daniel for handgun training. I had some prior basic experience but needed a refresher, and my wife was starting with no experience. Daniel was very patient and walked us through many important safety rules before getting into some real shooting, but even then he was supportive and very efficient with the limited time that we had. We since decided to make lessons with Daniel a bi-monthly routine.  My skills are more proficient now and so are my wife’s! We are very thankful for Daniel and his training. Both of us are feeling so much more comfortable with our accuracy and ability to safely protect our family. 

Thank you Daniel!

“Another lesson in the books

Today’s lesson? I’m a pretty good shot without my left eye

Huge thank you to ETAFirearms and Daniel Schneider for helping me feel comfortable and giving me the confidence I need to carry safely.

I haven’t had any experience with weapons since I was a teenager but, it’s become very apparent lately it’s important for me to carry to protect myself.

Daniel is one of the most respectable men I’ve ever worked with. I took a CCW course with him and his fiancé first. He always respects that there are some things a man cannot tell a woman when it comes to safety. Even though today was just him and I, not once did I feel incompetent or silly. I felt safe and confident the entire time.

And, when I got competitive and frustrated, he helped me problem solve and show me that even though I was just left of my target, all my shots were consistent and close. Here, he is showing me one round once I figured out my problem

If you are thinking about carrying or if you don’t feel confident carrying, I 10/10 recommend ETA Firearms.

Recently reached out to ETA about a sales ad posted on Nov 19 2020, I wasn’t very hopeful that the item was still available. within minutes ETA messaged me to let me know it was not only still available, it was still the same price it was when posted! (this was a big deal to me because it was the last piece needed for a build, and the current market had not driven up their price!) ETA was very helpful and maintained constant communication during payment and transit of the product. I highly recommend doing business with ETA, and will be doing more in the future myself.
also check out their available courses and upcoming courses! THANK YOU ETA, for a smooth transaction for this out of state buyer. Looking forward to training with you next time I am in Scottsdale.
