    Stone Mountain Firearms Training Service, LLC
    Excellent! I took the NRA Basic Pistol Course from Mac, and it was wonderful. The classroom session is full of excellent material, delivered as slides, animations, videos, conversation/lecture, and hands-on exercises. That’s followed by a couple of hours at a nearby firing range, practicing techniques, and then shooting a qualifying test. I had been shooting for several months before this class, but I learned a *bunch* of very useful techniques, and my accuracy immediately improved as a result. It was a very full day, and worth every minute. I’m a software trainer, so it’s impossible to not unconsciously evaluate another trainer’s delivery and methods. In that light, I have to say that Mac is a top-notch trainer. He’s thorough, but engaging, and very knowledgeable. He explains everything completely, and makes you very comfortable with firearms, from safe handling to loading, cocking/decocking, correct grip and stance. I would highly recommend Mac for any of your firearms training needs. I know I’ll be taking more classes from him!

    Our whole family has taken courses (more than one) from Mac at SMFTS. We highly recommend his courses. He applies simply down to earth methods and uses information that is easy to follow and understand - What I call the KISS method - For someone who has absolutely no knowledge about firearms, Mac's Basic pistol course is an absolute necessity - Mac also teaches the Legal Aspects courses and if you own a firearm you better have some information regarding the law - Mac also teaches more advanced self protection courses, held at an outside range in more realistic settings - His classes are also more personal in nature, He typically has less than six people in each class vs some of the other basic NRA courses that we checked out that has as many as twenty people in each class -

    CJI Guns
    Cji Gun Shop is a welcoming space, like the old corner shops where the proprietor is genuinely happy to see you. Truth be told, this was the second gun shop I visited in search of information and a particular product made by Smith and Wesson armorers. The first shop appeared dark and foreboding, parking was poor and congested (I use a cane), and the shop was closed. No signage of hours of operation or any identification of phone number or web site. So, I went home and looked on my laptop for a couple of "Yelp"-type sites. I am so happy I did! Literally around the corner from the first shop was Cji Gun Shop. Wow! What a difference. As mentioned above, the space was open and welcoming (there is a "shop-within-a-shop" that sells "Bullet Bling", jewelry and artwork made from spent brass). Ron was busy, but took ample time with each customer to address their needs. The staff worked as a team, right down to the cats and dog providing moral support. Amazingly, the product I was looking for was right in the showcase. Cji maintains a variety and supply of Smith and Wesson guns; as a growing "shop", they do not have a wide range of handguns available on display. Ron took the time and effort to educate me about the gun I wanted to purchase, work with his team to get background checks done in a timely manner, and still remain engaged with his customers. This shop is a "Jewel of Tucker", owned and operated by a Veteran who understands the life and death issues of safe gun use. As far as I'm concerned, Cji has become "My" shop of choice.

    These classes were fantastic! Mac is an extremely professional and highly skilled instructor who takes great pride in being an NRA instructor. After having had two undesirable encounters while living in the Atlanta area, I decided to purchase a 9mm and get my concealed carry permit. I feel much better prepared to defend myself after taking these classes should the need arise in the future.  I would definitely recommend Stone Mountain Firearms Training Service, LLC to anyone wishing to become confident in handling and shooting a firearm.

    I was particularly impressed with the knowledge and experience of the instructor, Mac McCullough. He answered all of my questions and covered the NRA course in great detail. On the shooting range, he was very patient and reminded me of every point I forgot until my execution was correct. I came away with a good bit of confidence that I did not have going in. I wanted to gain knowledge of pistol safety and operations and learn how to safely fire a pistol and hit the target. My goals were accomplished. I plan to take other NRA courses from Mac in the future and highly recommend him.

    Wild West Traders Gun Shop & Shooting Range
    Gun safety course for myself and my 12 year old Daughter. This was an awesome class. I wanted something that was not too large where we would get personal attention and we got it here! Gunny H. was absolutely fantastic. He covered everything and while it is serious material, he made it interesting, fun, informative, and the time flew by. For a 12 year old to pay attention and enjoy the class, that says how well Gunny can teach. Yes, I looked around and there are the fancy large places and everyone I spoke with that went to them, said that they came away not feeling anymore comfortable. With Wild West Traders, everyone in the class was very comfortable after this class - again, a place that will give you the personal attention. Gunny took the time with each and every person both in the class and on the range to make sure all questions were answered and to help with any issue. I highly reccomend this business! What I liked most was that if you have a minor child, they can take the class if you take it with them. Yes, you pay for 2 but it is worth it when it comes to safety, that is a small price to pay. It was a great experience to share with my child! They list their classes on the website at http://www.wwtguns.com/classes-training. They stay booked and it is due to the quality instruction!

    The training was memorable, well presented and created a familiarity with the pistol that I didn't have prior to the class.

    My wife and daughter were interested in learning to shoot and asked me to arrange for classes for them.   Neither of them had ever fired a pistol, and one of them had never fired any sort of firearm.  I had a previous NRA class, carried for years, and gone to the range at least weekly back in the 90s, but hadn't fired a round since Y2K, so I wanted a refresher and some pointers to improve my skills. We arrived for the classroom instruction bright and early, and class began at 8am.  Mac taught us safety, the components of a pistol, its function, fundamentals of accuracy, how to select ammunition, how to react to misfires, hangfires, and squibs, and many other classroom topics.  We practiced with practice weapons (firing lasers) as well as dry-firing pistols at the classroom until after noon when we broke for lunch and headed for the range. Once at the range, we used the providers .22 rimfire pistols, and went through several exercises to reinforce everything we learned, starting with loading and firing a single round at bench rest, through firing multiple rounds at bench rest, and then moving on to firing at targets from a standing position. Mac, our instructor,  was exceptionally well prepared not only to teach what was in the basic curriculum, but also offered specific and valuable advice to us tailored to our own situations.  He was a patient instructor who put my wife and daughter at ease, and taught me more in one morning of class than I had learned in years at the range before.   Mac's individual attention was absolutely fantastic.  He was my third firearms instructor, and by far the best I've ever seen.   All three of us plan to return for additional classes and coaching.

    My partner wants to get a pistol for home protection, and since neither of us has had much experience with guns, I decided we should first take a course to learn the safe and proper way to handle and fire them. I found Stone Mountain Firearms Training on Angie's list, read the reviews and was quite impressed. The location was about 11 miles from my home, which was nice. I looked at the provider's website, and grew even more impressed, so contacted him to arrange for us to take the basic pistol course the following week. I have rarely made a better decision in my entire life. The instructor/owner, Douglas and quot;Macand quot; McCullough is probably the best you could ever hope to find. His knowledge and experience is vast and covers a wide array of firearms. He is very thorough and patient explaining every aspect of safety, handling and firing pistols. He teaches the classroom instruction at his home, which includes NRA training, Mac's own videos and other videos, and dry firing and laser pistol practice. Our classroom instruction ran long, so we all agreed to come back the next day to finish the class material and go to the range for live fire practice. The next day went well for me, not so much for my partner who had trouble remembering to keep her finger off the trigger when not on the target or shooting. We both shot fairly well for newbies, and the credit for that goes to Mac. For people like my partner and me, who are over 65 and new to this, the information can be a little overwhelming and I would suggest you ask for the course over two days instead of just one. If you complete and pass the test at the end of the course, you will get a certificate stating that you did pass it. It's all true/false and multiple choice, and covers most of what you will have learned. Having the additional evening to review it all made it much easier for me to pass the test. If you ever want to learn anything about guns, or the law concerning guns, Mac has many courses available. We will no doubt take additional training from him once we purchase a pistol. I cannot recommend Mac and his class any higher, but if there was an A+++, that's what I would rate him. You won't regret spending the time or money learning from him.

    Mac provided timely, accurate information in a personal, small classroom setting. There were four students and two instructors. I've only met Mac twice, but both times have been positive experiences. You definitely get your money's worth when dealing with Stone Mountain Firearms Training Service, and Mac offers a number of different courses that are important to firearm owners today, like Concealed Carry, and others. This was a very good experience.
