High class training with comprehensive coverage of the NRA course material delivered in a professional and easy going manner. All of the students learned a great deal and were given all the tools necessary to run their own courses. I would not hesitate to recommend Alamo Defense to family and friends. Indeed, I already have!

Being In the military and a former NJ Police Officer I found the class very informative. Things are a lot less strict here(Texas) whereas in NJ you are bound by excessive laws. The class was very well laid out and had much useful information, for a concealed carry holder.

Chris held a very informative and fluid workshop on not only the "how's and why's" of the NRA, but also how to make it all work together. His approach to the teaching process not only set you up for success as an instructor, he also set your future students up for success by giving you the tools needed to provide top notch instruction. He covered alot of information over the 2-day course, but I am confident that my wife and I will be able to go far in this business with this course as our keystone

I would absolutely recommend this class and more specifically Chris to anyone! He is a fantastic instructor who makes any class he teaches interesting and fun. I know that I will be using him for all of the future NRA courses that I will be taking! He is also a fantastic resource for anything related to firearms and shooting. Thanks again Chris for the great experience!

Thanks for a class that kept my interest under adverse circumstances beyond your control. As an Instructor with many years experience, I tend to see the smallest flaws in other instructors' abilities. That is what led me to my current position within my company. I am a Senior Instructor responsible for certifying other instructors in the semiconductor industry. I can normally pick out at least 5 opportunities for improvement in a 20 minute presentation. Your teaching skills display experience beyond your years. If I turned this in on an instructor at Applied Materials after two days of observation, my management would expect at least a full page of suggestions. The fact that I can come up with only two for you speaks volumes. 1) You kept the topics interesting. You were animated, but not overly animated. 2) Your voice inflection kept me awake when I had no sleep the night before. 3) You continually asked questions to gauge the students' understanding. 4) Your smooth presentation shows that you were highly prepared both days.

I just attended the BIT and Pistol class conducted by Chris Stockton in Houston TX. Mr. Stockton did an excellent job and I was very impressed with his ability to instruct and knowledge of the topic. I would highly recommend this instructor and hope to be able to attend more of his classes.

I have attended several firearms classes over the years from various sources. While Chris's class was very informative, I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and Chris's style of instruction made it easy to try new things and make mistakes on your own which, after correction, increased the overall learning experience. I highly recommend training at Alamo Defense and plan on attending more of Chris's classes in the future.

Chris Stockton's pistol instructor course was a unique experience. It was nothing like I imagined it might be. Chris made the two day course incredibly informative and fun. I thought there would be hours of lecture, but it was mostly experiencial role playing. This allowed me to feel like an instructor. The feedback from Chris after each excersize enabled me to see the areas that needed to be polished as a pistol instructor. I plan on taking other instructor courses from Chris, and would highly recomend his classes to others.

Chris you gave an outstanding class and I look forward to taking courses from you in the future. Your teaching style is straight forward and I have not received that from many instructors at all. If something is not the way it is supposed to be then you point it out and the students has an opportunity to adjust while learning from you.

Chris did an outstanding job teaching the Basic Pistol Instructor course. After many years in the classroom, I have become aware of different problems with Instructors and Professors inability to teach and get the information out to their students. But Chris was great. He kept everything basic and general so that everyone in the class could follow along and understand. He also made the class fun. I am looking forward to taking more classes.

Chris makes the all day course enjoyable and really easy to follow along with while not making it a long boring day in the class room with an hour on the range. I was truly impressed at the range when he puts safety as his number one concern. I would recommend this class to seasoned gun handlers and to newcomers alike. Keep up the great work Chris and look forward to taking another class with you in the future.

The course was well structured, informative and at times challenging. I have been involved in many corporate training events over the last 23 years and I can honestly say Chris Stockton is an outstanding trainer with extraordinary people skills. I would recommend Alamo Defense, Chris Stockton and this course to anyone interested in becoming an NRA Instructor.

Thank you I learned a lot. Alamo Defense was prepared and organized. Appreciate Chris's respect for gun laws and the handling of guns. Already passed out his card to a co-worker who will be signing up for Alamo Defense's class. I wish I had more cards to pass out. I look forward to taking more classes in the future.

Having gone through another States Concealed weapons permit (CWP) course. I can tell you that this course was hands down the better of the two. Job well done to Chris Stockton & Alamo Defense. I look forward to more firearms training in the future. Thank you

I really enjoyed this License to carry CHL class I attended in Feb. of 2011. Chris was very informative, professional and knows his information on Laws, handgun licensing and other weapon and safety features. He makes the class enjoyable with his humor and knowledge. He takes the session at the range very seriously to insure the safety of all!!

Chris taught an excellent class. His teaching form allows the marksman to grasp the concept of his training. I will use Alamo Defense again in the near future for further training!

I have taken 2 classes with Chris (CHL and Handgun). In both classes, safety is paramount. In my latest class, Chris took the time to explain every aspect of the handgun. At the range, he was patient and thorough. I highly recommend Chris as the instructor of choice if you are contemplating License to Carry CHL or any other class that he teaches. Being a teacher myself, as well as a retired military veteran, I can testify personally to his professionalism and vast storehouse of knowledge and handgun expertise.

I highly recommend this class, as the instructor (Chris) was highly knowledgeable and proficient with his training. I would also recommend doing the smaller class size/1on1 training, as you will have lots of questions that would be better served/addressed in a more focused setting. Chris was extremely professional, courteous, and answered every question I had effectively,without reservation. HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommended.
