"I find him interesting and fascinatingly dangerous" -Quote from a female from the concealed carry weapon course about chief instructor Kevin Martin.
"I recently became a certified student of Hilltop gun club during a freezing snow storm. I paid little attention when told that the instructors took everyone to the range regardless of the weather conditions. Shooting defensive handguns in a blinding, freezing to death, sideways snow storm under duress as part of the concealed carry training isn't for the faint of heart or weak. In this brutal yet beautiful training period, I was taken from an anxious man that had never shot a hand gun into an assertive and confident trained shooter that can hit my target. Thanks to the personal one-on-one, careful, safe, professional instruction, I am now much more assured of actually buying a handgun for my family and personal self protection. The CCW pistol course is supposed to be taught over 40 hours, however we got it in a brisk non-stop manner of 5 hours and then 3 hours of soul-wearing gun range training." I would recommend Kevin Martin as your instructor, as he is a caring, fantastic intense instructor." H. Legion
Hilltop gun club,
I want to thank you for the private training. It was concise, well presented information that I learned from. Our group experience was very fun and the catered food was absolutely delicious. We are jealous of Athens county inhabitants as you have the best little shops and restaurants available. We will come back this summer for the women's training program and look forward for another exciting weekend.
In my best regards
My first real experience with hand gun instruction and training happened
here!!!!... I grew up in a pro gun / hunting family and learned to shoot at a young
age. I recently began to take my personal safety and self defense seriously and
started searching for help....Hence...I met Kevin, Chief weapons Instructor for the
Hilltop Gun Club. In the course of a comprehensive shooting and evaluation
session, He ( we) decided that I need much more instruction and practice in both
safety and shooting techniques!..I was very happy to find that he was willing to
begin work with me starting at whatever level of skill and knowledge that I
currently have!...I was Lucky enough to attend and complete the Hill Top CCW course
offered 12/12/15 and met John, the CCW Instructor!!...The knowledge, experience
and expertise these men possess is very impressive!!!!.....Did I mention that I am
a mature Woman who was treated with respect and encouraged every step of the
way..???...This course was like nothing I have experienced before and I enjoyed the
entire class!!!...( from the responsible expectations for hand gun use and carry
laws to the actual hands- on shooting exercises!!!)
Women are Welcome here!!!...This is the ONLY course I could highly recommend for
anyone who wants to learn from real experts!!!...It is VERY intense..( even scary
sometimes)...but is so worth the time and investment!!!!...I would encourage every
woman to become better able to protect herself in any situation!!!...The many
attacks on innocent people in this country makes this an important issue for us
This is NOT a walk in the park!!!...I find it both physically and mentally
challenging, yet quite satisfying at the same time!!!...I am learning more about
the club and courses offered and plan to attend as many as I can until I feel
completely confident and comfortable with my weapon and my ability to use it
properly!!!!!!...Many Thanks to the instructors for offering such a much needed
service to our community !!!!!! ...Sandra F.
I recently took the CCW course at the Hill Top Gun Club, It was a tough course with no fluff and I received good solid...
