Definitely will refer everyone I know looking for a great experience to Louisiana Secure Sights!”

 “Phillip is an excellent instructor.  He is very passionate about having his students walk away from his class with the skills to become safe and responsible gun owners. His classroom setting is very comfortable and professional and his teaching style makes you feel at ease. He encourages class participation whether you are a first time gun owner or a professional. His presentations are very informative and designed to make you think about the responsibility you must exercise when you handle a weapon. His website provides you with all the information you need to complete your CHP application. While shooting at the range Phillip is definitely a hands on instructor. He gives you clear instructions on what he expects everyone to do and takes his time getting you ready to shoot, all while maintaining everyone's safety. After taking this class you will feel more confident in your ability to safely and responsibly handle your weapon. We highly recommend taking your Concealed Handgun Permit class with Phillip.”
