If you are looking for some top notch training these are the men you want. I came into training with basic knowledge of my firearms and gear. Pete and Chris know what they are doing it doesn't matter if you are new to firearms or a trained veteran you will leave knowing so much more. After training I was no longer timid about my firearms because I knew how to solve most problems I would encounter on the field, they also showed me that the gear I had previously wasn't suitable for my needs. So like I said if you are looking for a more I depth style of training Pete and Chris are the men you want!
I have had all my guys take Carbine 1 and 2 with Pete and Chris. Will be taking Carbine 3 in the Spring. These guys are knowledgeable, professional and experienced in what they train. They keep an eye on everything that is going on, because they realize safety is key. I would trust my life on their training, and trust my guys with my life because of this training. Cant wait for the next round of training.

Took the class last September with Pete and Chris, these two gentlemen are top notch. Right the beginning they set the tone on safety and what they expect as instructors. Its been 20 years since I last strapped up boots with Army and boy how fighting styles have changed. Yet they make that transition seamless with their laymen style verbiage and patients. I can tell you I have 30 + years of shooting under my belt and they taught this old dog how to be better. I truly suggest if you are even slightly thinking about any further firearms training these are the guys you want and this is the training you need. I can't thank them enough.

The class we took was great. Personalized training and focus was put on each student as if they were the only one there. I highly recommend taking one of the DEFTECH classes you will not be disappointed. Coming from a world with no formal training the instructors do not slack on safety and the basics of each particular weapons system. Thank you guys for all your hard work and dedication!
After taking my 1st class with DEFTECH I can say with certainty it will not be my last. The instruction I received was individualized to my needs and abilities as much as a multi student class can be. Without singling anyone out as an example, the instructor took each opportunity to teach us all about our bad habits and how to break them. I am looking forward to progressing through the whole range of offerings that DEFTECH offers and highly recommend you give them consideration for your training needs.
I took the Carbine 1 course on 12/27. I had Pete Lanteri as my instructor. He is a very smart, knowledgeable, caring, hands on instructor. He quickly realized some of the errors I was making out of a class of about 15 people and gave me some good tips and tricks to correct said errors. I learned a few new things and am very happy. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and can't wait for the next class
On December 27th 2015, I took a defensive carbine 1 class taught by Mr. Pete Lanteri. All I have to say is outstanding! It didn't matter if you were a beginner or have been shooting for years. He was very thorough in explaining every drill and gave me little tips here in there for huge improvements on my shot placements. I learned new things all class long. There was never any negativity during the class, always positive even if mistakes were made. All in all I would highly recommend taking any of his classes, male or female and no matter what skill level you are at. Great class and great instructor
