I want to thank you for your teaching to always assume a gun is loaded & handling guns is not the time to try to look cool. Awhile back I was at my brother's house in WI to handle & shoot some of his guns. He has been around guns all his life and has at least 15 handguns & 5 rifles. He is very responsible and careful.

He asked which handgun I wanted to see first. I told him ...and...I saw him check it before he handed it to me - slide closed. I remember hearing you in my head saying "its not the time to try to look cool" so I pulled open the slide expecting to see nothing but black. To my surprise I thought I saw a hint of brass before the slide closed, so I opened it fully the next time and a round was ejected. I said "oh, so there was a round in it". My brother was momentarily surprised and said "what?" as he looked as he picked up the round off the floor. He quickly regained his composure and said "that was a test". I know he really thought it was unloaded.

NOTE: Jean, if that was a test, you passed with flying colors!


Had an opportunity to go with a friend to his New Buffalo, MI club and shot in my first IDPA. Not bad for a first timer. I have to say that taking the Advanced Pistol Class really prepared me for such a scenario.

I had a lot of fun taking your firearms training course. Most of the things you presented were new to me, but you made it easy for me to understand all of the material. I liked the classroom part of the course, but what I enjoyed the most was the range day. I feel well prepared from taking your class for my field of study, Criminal Justice. Your firearms training course was a blast and I will recommend it to anyone.

Until next time,

Dear Mr. Ostrander,

A few short weeks ago, I have attended your Chicago Firearms Safety Class and I wanted to drop you a note regarding how much fun I had attending it. It was a delight to partake in your class.

Your being a criminal defense attorney gives a unique perspective on the topic of gun ownership and what that really means if, and one hopes it never comes to it, one has to utilize it for self defense.

Whereas the seminar follows mandatory 4 hours requirement by the City of Chicago, I stayed with you for almost 6 hours and, truth be told, could have stayed all day long. It was really informative, and interesting, to hear your talk on variety of topics let alone real life stories.

Mandatory hour on the shooting range was also fun. As you know, last time I fired a hand gun was in 1993 let alone that I never fired a polymer weapon. Yet, with your expert guidance and your graciously lending me your 9mm Glock, it came all right back to me. Yes, I need to practice more and with your pointing what I need to work on, I am certain it won't be long before I get to the satisfactory result.

I am by no mean what some would refer to as a "gun aficionado" however being part of your class and having enjoying it immensely, I am now interested in attending your other classes, Utah and Florida Concealed Carry Permit Classes, which I will attend as soon as you have one scheduled.

Just a quick note to thank you again for letting me join your class last minute. I found it very enjoyable and informative; your background and expertise really helped bring it all together. I certainly will recommend the course to others!

Joel, Thanks for the [UT & FL] class. My wife and I enjoyed the class and talked about it all the way home. We both learned a lot ...
My wife, Michelle, wanted to thank you for the use of the gun and she felt very comfortable with it and your instruction. I see a Glock in the future when we have the funds to get one. Please let me know if there are other classes that would be helpful for skill in the future if you have any come up.
We look forward to the packet of info. And I already requested the information from Florida to get that application rolling.

Thanks again,
Jack B. and Michelle H.
