  • "Michael Duda is the best instructor I have ever had for my initial CCW and my renewal His expertise between his military experience and especially his law enforcement experience is unparalleled. The class I took in May was fast moving, thorough and not monotonous at all. I learned a lot of things that I did not know and was kept up to date on new laws governing the carrying and use of my firearm. I whole heartedly recommend Mike Duda as your trainer, your instructor and a friend. I’m proud to call Mike my friend."
