Jeff S:
  “I thought I was a good marksman before I trained with Heath. What I learned made me a lot better and his instruction continues to benefit me. I can highly recommend Heath to first time shooters and seasoned marksmen alike.”
Don P:
  “I have taken private lessons with Heath Layman and will be signing up for the Willapa Firearms Training. Heath is an excellent instructor. Very patient and with me he needed to be because I knew absolutely nothing about shooting pistols when he took me under his wing. If you are serious about learning how to properly handle weapons, you need to sign up for Heath's classes.”

“4 of us ladies took a great class from Heath. Learned a lot, great instructor. Highly recommend!”
