I wanted to thank you once again and commend you on an excellent class last Saturday. It was very informative and I enjoyed the good questions. I am a former Marine and avid shooter. Your class was great and you handled the range very well. I have been licensed in TN and CO, and found your class the best out of them all.

I took the classroom part at Frisco Gun Club, but the experience was not good:

The instructor ***** was:
- Somewhat condescending
- Brash
- Did not pass pass out an outline or a syllabus
- There was no option about qualifying immediately after the written portion of the class or doing it later
- Their front desk was very nice and tried to help me get that certification sheet, but it took three tries to get it done.
- My over all opinion was , the Club was a nice facility, but the instructor was a pompous ass.

I went to Sandy at McKinney Firearms Training for the Proficiency, and it was a much better experience. He hands out a complete syllabus, and does the Proficiency for everyone, immediately after class.

Very well taught class, Sandy helps where it's needed and is able to answer most off-the-wall questions. The class room is farther than expected but being that the classroom and range are both right there makes it worth while. He also has a good bit of patience, seen first hand with one of the students. Lastly he wants you to be the closest person to protect you, and the people around you. Thank you for your knowledge Sandy and keep up the good work.

This was an excellent class. Sandy was awesome as an instructor. He was very knowledgeable and a genuinely nice guy. I would recommend hiim to anyone.

I qualified with a score of 231 using a .357 Ruger snubnose. No easy task for sure. It was the only pistol I had on hand at the time.

Just an aside, I'm uber left wing but a huge 2A supporter. I really wish that I could get some of my lefty friends to understand how important it is to keep and bear arms. Nevertheless, Sandy made me very comfortable among a group that tended to be be a bit more to the right (it is TX, you know). It was a really great experience.

This was my first experience with a gun. At first I was nervous but after the Learn to Shoot course, I felt more comfortable handling a gun. I also took the CHL class and learned a lot of good information about the gun laws. Sandy gives you the information you need to know about gun safety, handling a gun, improving your shot, etc. Even though this was my first experience with a gun, he made me feel comfortable asking questions and shooting. I would recommend his class to first time students as well as experienced individuals.

Outstanding class. Mr.Keathley made the law module quick and understandable. I recommend this course with Mr.Keathley to everyone that has an interest in getting an LTC. He also had the patience of Job. The gentlemen next to me continually had issues. Everytime Mr.Keathley walked over, cleared the jam and we continued. Good Instructor, Good Guy!

Relaxed atmosphere, take home folders with the entire course material printed for later review and also extra reading which is beneficial. Mr. Keathley was professional and got the course complete in a timely manner which I know I appreciated as did everyone else I'm sure. Also he offers weekday classes which is nice if you work weekends as I do. Overall efficient and easy to follow in his delivery of course material.

I'm sending a quick note of sincere thanks. Today's education was a perfect introduction to learning more about guns and how to handle them safely. I feel much less ignorant, which has already alleviated a noticeable amount of fear.

I attended McKinney Firearms Training on 11/12/16 with my daughter. I grew up around guns, having come from a family of hunters and I strictly believe in the 2nd Amendment. I really enjoyed the whole class and gun range experience with Dr. Keathley. I felt that the class time and range time were a good mix. He is a very good instructor and very knowledgeable.

My husband and I registered for the Learn to Shoot class after becoming overwhelmed at a shooting range - we had quickly realized that we needed help before taking a CHL class. The class was small (about 7 people) and while it was a serious topic, the atmosphere was casual, making it easy and comfortable to ask questions. Sandy's Learn to Shoot class taught us basic gun safety rules and then we learned grip, stance, sighting, recoil, etc. He explained WHY the safety rules were so important and potential consequences of not following them. We were able to shoot a variety of different handguns after the classroom portion. We feel so much better now handling guns safely and without fear. Thank you Sandy!

Dr. Sandy Keathley is a true professional in his field of License to Carry subject matter. He has a lot of knowledge and he's easily approachable. The course was held at Quality Inn and it was a nice setting. The shooting portion was about 30 minutes away from the course. Follow the instructions exactly! I was lost and drove 75 N without turning Right onto the next freeway. I was about 20 minutes late, however the instructor and the students were very patient and kind. I have gathered research from a few places and I was happy that I went with McKinney Firearms Training. Thank you Sandy!

I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. Keathley's LTC course. Registration was a snap and the classroom portion was thorough, detailed and interesting. In addition to covering the required materials, Sandy added anecdotes based on recent news stories and events as well as personal experience, all of which added relevant information and kept the class from becoming boring. The short drive to the range was easy and the testing there was professional, safe and efficient. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience and will wholeheartedly recommend MFT in the future. This is the one you want to take, folks.

Sandy Keathley's License to Carry (LTC) class was an excellent course. Mr. Keathley's professionalism and knowledge is highly demonstrated during my time with him inside and outside of the classroom. He is inviting and attentive to questions, and responds accordingly with detailed answers. During classroom time (the duration is about a four hours), is insightful and engaging for both those who know absolutely nothing about firearms/self-defense, and/or for those who happen to be very well versed in the subject matter. The format used during the presentation and approach were sophisticated; and his expertise translates well with others. The shooting range is simple, but proficient. Mr. Keathley's professionalism was in full force - firearm safety was his number one priority, and he exercised this efficiently. My experience outside of classroom was outstanding. Mr. Keathley responded to emails in a timely fashion, was precise, and systematic with his answer(s). He was a great guide for all of my questions. If you seek to take a License to Carry (LTC) class, I highly recommend Sandy Keathley.

Very professional course taught by Mr. Keathley. No feeling of rush or impatience by Mr. Keathley; but the class schedule and timeline were held to very well, even with the allowance of questions by the group. That is a sign of excellent preparation and strong knowledge of what is being presented. The classroom portion was informative and easy to follow.

The outside range location is excellent for allowing one to stay focused on the course. I have witnessed an indoor range teaching LTC and even though there were multiple instructors, at least one of the instructors always seemed to be moving back and forth trying to communicate with everyone. Mr. Keathley kept strong control over the outdoor range portion of the course, while showing patience if someone had a gun jam or misfire. He kept everyone on the same page and informed on what they should be doing. I do not recall anyone firing more or less rounds than he had instructed, throughout the entire course.

Great command and discipline and ability to share knowledge. I Highly recommend any courses taught at McKinney Firearms Training.

I took Sandy Keathley's LTC (Lic to Carry) course and found it to be very well organized, and informative beyond just the State's reqd. minimums. Sandy's teaching style is anything but monotonous, where his conscientious style keeps this course very engaging. Sandy knows when to throw in a bit of witty humor, and he lightens-up the few heavy/serious topics which are the reqd understandings in LTC proficiency. On the final range portion, participants safety seemed to be his primary concern. Sandy 'makes' this course fun. I highly recommend Sandy for your LTC/CHL training process.

I researched every LTC Class in a thirty-mile radius before calling Sandy Keathley at McKinney Firearms Training. After answering all of my questions over 3 separate phone calls, I was convinced to take the LTC Class with Sandy. He made the classroom session really interesting and covered & explained all of the pertinent laws, as well as, other considerations of carrying a firearm legally -- the time flew by like it was only an hour or so long. (class is approx 4 hours). We shot at a private gun range directly after class. It was nice to do all of the necessary training on the same day. Sandy is a great instructor and even helped me with sending the necessary documents to the state for my license. I Highly recommend Sandy and McKinney Firearms Training.

Sandy provides a professional attitude in presenting his LTC course, and his practical experiences go toward a full explanation and understanding of the topics. His entire manner "disarms" concerns of pass/fail while making the course enjoyable just from the perspective of learning about handgun use. His demeanor carries over to the firing range, where his profesional attitude relieves anxieties during the test.

Dr. Keathley is an extremely knowledgeable instructor. Starting with "Gun Safety" and "Personal Responsibility" in a classroom setting, then, the outdoors rural firing range. I found the use of several different handguns very helpful as well as Sandy has the ability to reach each individual personality and adjust his training to meet the individual persons' needs, resulting in a very worthy instruction experience. This is a very well rounded class that I would recommend to anyone wanting to learn to shoot the correct way as a novice or to one who is experienced.

I chose Sandy's class after watching the YouTube promo on his web page. Glad I did. He accommodates folks who know a little, a lot, and next to nothing. He is very patient with people who haven't shot much, yet keeps very good control over the line when it's time to hit the target.

Learned a lot in the class, particularly around the moving gray areas in TX and nationally. If you're like I am, you'd almost rather be shot than shoot someone else. But current events would call for us to be aware and prepared for loved ones and neighbors' sake.

Highly recommended, and I plan to take a tactical class with him soon.

He was knowledgeable of the material and presented it in such a way that it held your interest.

I grew up with firearms and carried side arms many times while hunting, but is a whole different story when carrying in main-stream America.

We participated in Sandy's Intro to Handguns class in February 2015. The class included basic understandings of the difference between revolvers and semi-automatic handguns as well as single and double action. The instructor was very passionate about safety above all else when handling a firearm. I felt he made everyone comfortable in regards to how safe a gun can be when handled properly even with little to no knowledge of firearms.

We had the opportunity to load both types of guns as well as fire each caliber multiple times with the instructor by our side coaching us in proper grip and aiming techniques. Sandy pointed out brands, costs and good and bad points of each to help us reach our own conclusion as to which firearm we may want to look further into if we decide we want to purchase a gun. We highly recommend Sandy's class to all handgun newbies.

Would highly recommend this class to anyone who has limited knowledge of guns. As I knew absolutely nothing about guns, and was, quite frankly, afraid of them, Dr. Keathley's class was a perfect introduction. He answered all my questions in a professional, kindly manner that encouraged me to ask even "dumb" questions. He also explained the "mechanics" of guns in such a way that now I feel like I can handle any gun safely. The "hands-on" information from the variety of guns he provided for us to actually shoot is particularly useful for deciding what kind of a gun to purchase. Even in the freezing cold - enjoyed the class and certainly appreciate what I learned from it.
