Gary was knowledgable and patient when teaching me how to handle guns properly and safely. I have taken two courses with him and can’t wait to take more! I have since purchased a Mossberg 500 and a Sig P226 and my husband and I have become members of the NRA and will be hopefully joining a local gun club soon. I highly recommend anyone wanting to know about guns, their safety and how to properly shoot them to take Gary’s classes; you will walk away…addicted to wanting to shoot more… especially the clay pigeons!
I’m so happy that I finally started and completed this course in a small setting with wonderful, knowledgeable instructors. They go through everything thoroughly and I am amazed at how much I took away from the course after just one day. I’m hooked and excited to continue this journey. The instructors are attentive, patient, and helpful. If you’re female and thinking about doing this course – JUST GO FOR IT! My instructor for the range was Konnie and she was so patient with me. Tailored, professional, and thorough is how I would describe my experience. Again, I am so happy that I made the time. Stop wishing, start doing my fellow Yelpers! The location is super easy to get to (De Portola medical building, Suite 203) and the range is just 10 mins away headed toward Rainbow. -03/20/2020
Connie is a great instructor! After taking the basic pistol course, I feel more confident and comfortable handling a firearm. The classes were clear to understand and prices were very reasonable. I plan to take more courses at L&L in the future. I highly recommend. 05/14/2021
Gary and Konnie are the epitome of professional and easy going. Respect and courtesy to all the class attendees was their hallmark. Thanks so much for making the process painless and enjoyable. My best to both of you! Brian H. July 18, 2022
Best Firearms training ever! Learned so much. Interesting, lots to learn, tons of information and then target practice. I appreciate the safety training. I feel so much for more confident in handling guns. I can’t wait purchase one. 09/26/2020
The right choice for me and a handful of women friends to get our basic pistol training in an arranged private class. Konnie was supportive, and professional! Getting through the experience with friends was a great way to start our new understandings and establish basic skills. Looking forward to continuing our skill development. Konnie at L&L is highly recommended! Especially for woman. – 12/2020
I have recently completed both the CCW Prep and then a month later the CCW initial. As an intermediate shooter that only started as a beginning a few months ago in May of 2020, I am grateful for the patience, dedication and attention to extreme detail that Gary, Konnie and Jack were able to teach to their students. These classes not only served the point to move forward with my CCW requirements, but more importantly have made me a more safe, aware, proficient and confident shooter. Because of these classes and the community of people I have met I have actually started to take up interest in the sport of shooting, this says a lot to someone who just 6 months ago had never fired a handgun. Thanks to Gary and Konnie for everything, I am very appreciative I chose to train with L&L Firearms Training. 10/12/2020
Great class and I learned a lot about the rifle. I would recommend this class to anyone new to the AR15.Great class and I learned a lot about the rifle. I would recommend this class to anyone new to the AR15. Paul M. June 7, 2022
Gary was a great teacher! I am signing up for another class today.
Great class …great fun …loved it …thanks so much Gary!
I had a great time! Gary is an excellent instructor! I would definitely go again! – Facebook
Great group to train with !!!!! They know how to make you feel comfortable and really help you along. Looking forward to taking more classes with them. March 27, 2021
Great class and very informative. If your a beginning shooter or looking to get a firearm, I highly recommend you take a class with L&L firearms training. You’ll learn a great deal about handling a firearm. The instructors are very knowledgeable and make it a great experience. Augie C.
Gary was a great instructor. He makes you feel comfortable with the weapons and most importantly makes sure you have fun! Can’t wait to do some more shooting with him again.
Took the basic pistol course on Saturday. Konnie was our instructor and she was very knowledgeable and took her time to explain everything thoroughly. I really enjoyed this course and walked away feeling more confident and trained correctly. Will be taking more courses in the near future. Eric P. July 13, 2021
Both my son and I have taken classes with Gary and he is excellent. Most people will not admit that learning about firearms can be somewhat intimidating but Gary makes everyone feel comfortable. We are looking forward to our continued training and can’t wait for our next class. Thanks Gary!
After taking the class with Gary and Konnie, it was better than I could have ever thought. While I felt nervous in the beginning, Gary and Konnie were very helpful with what to expect, answered questions, and kept safety as a number one priority. Any minor infractions/improper techniques were corrected quickly and there were plenty of opportunities to practice. I look forward to taking classes with them in the future. A+++!!! May 9, 2021
Professional. Knowledgeable. Patient. Thorough. I’ve taken 3 classes with Gary, Konnie and Jack and I’m just getting started. I am a first time gun owner and by the time I was done with my first class, basic pistol training, I developed an incredible level of confidence about using my gun. And with every class I complete, I leave with more confidence in using my firearm, while acquiring the right mindset. If you are serious about learning how to operate your firearm and to be brought up-to-speed on current gun laws, L&L Firearms Training is where you want to go. February 22, 2021
Gary and Connie (and their other guy) were great. They were professional, nice and kept everything very safe. I will be returning for another class soon. I highly recommend these guys for any firearms training. Thanks Gary/Connie. Pat S. November 16, 2021
Great job L&L team!! I learned a lot, it’s been many years since I was an active duty Marine and had training this great!! They did a great job with instruction, safety and were very professional. I would highly recommend L&L for CCW training and any other firearms training courses. I will definitely reach out to them for ongoing training and will now try to get my Wife and Daughter to join a basic shooter class. January 31, 2021
Awesome class! I recommend to anyone that wants to know about different handguns and how to operate them safely and with confidence.
Great experience for the entire family. We all really learned a lot. Konnie is very knowledgeable and all about gun safety safety safety. I would highly recommend this firearms training business. My wife is signing up for private lessons. Mark O. September 6, 2021
Awesome experience! Very professional staff. I’m a Master Gunnery Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps with 27 and a half years in. Grade A Course!! Gary being a retired Master Gunnery Sergeant as well I felt at home having a fellow Marine teach the course. Ooh Raah! 03/2021
Awesome class… Top notch training… Friendly and professional .. Alfred I. July 2, 2022
Wow! Gary and his wife Konnie are amazing people! They are nice, sincere, patient, and very helpful. They are both WONDERFUL instructors, and we are so happy to have found them! Gary even spent about an hour with me on the phone before I booked the class since I had so many questions! They have much passion and knowledge! We tired lessons about 5 yrs ago (from another instructor) but it was not as detailed as Gary’s Basic NRA pistol class. We learned WAY more this time around, and now are much more comfortable around guns, and may just be ready to buy one now! Thanks again Gary and Konnie! My husband is so happy he passed all the rounds and made rank 4 since most people cannot do it right away (less than 1% you said!) We both had so much fun and learned a lot!! Oh and thank you so much for all the photos you both took, they are such nice memories our of time with you both! 🙂 01/07/2020
I took their Initial CCW Course and it was as expected. I qualified with two of my pistols and the experience was great. Gary and Konnie took the time to go through the material and answer all the questions asked during the course. They did not rush us at all during the process and even stayed behind to ask a few general questions and they took the time to answer them. You need 100 rounds for the handgun you will practice and qualify with and for the additional handguns you want to qualify with you need the ammo needed only to qualify only (ammo is hard to come by now a days).07/23/2020
This classThis class was awesome ! Highly recommend. John F. June 25, 2022
I really recommend l&l for your firearm training, even though I have been to different shooting ranges with my own pistol, I realized I was developing bad habits. After taking class with l&l firearm training I learned how to properly grip pistol, and the 5 fundamentals of shooting: (grip,breath,hold,trigger and follow thru) . But most important was learning how to safely handle a firearm. I will be signing up to other classes they offer including reloading ammo. March 24, 2021
I just completed my CCW course with Gary and Konnie. I highly recommend L&L Firearms Training. They were thorough, making sure all of the information was covered. Gary and Konnie emphasized safety and proper technique, which are crucial to gun handling and ownership. They were encouraging and did not “talk down” to us at any point. I qualified with my Glock 19, and was very impressed with how the class was organized and run. Whether you are just starting out with firearms, or are a more advanced shooter, Gary and Konnie will take good care of you! 09/29/2020
The right choice for me and a handful of women friends to get our basic pistol training in an arranged private class.
Konnie was supportive, and professional!
Getting through the experience with friends was a great way to start our new understandings and establish basic skills.
Konnie at L&L is highly recommended! Especially for woman. 09/24/2020
Excellent instruction from friendly and knowledgeable staff. Absolutely no pressure. Kenneth R. June 7, 2022
Very nice shooting, Kody! Thanks for the 5 star rating! Good to see you were pleased with our CCW course content. Kody M. Jun 21, 2022
The quality and professionalism from Gary and Konnie is amazing. The training is clear and concise and I left feeling more confident. I highly recommend anyone who wants to get back to the basics and more or needs to start fresh, train with L&L. They are patient, encouraging and full of knowledge. I look forward to seeing them again.07/13/2020
Great class easy to understand and will take the time if a student is having a issue. Steve P. July 2, 2022
Instructors Gary and Connie were through with a sense of humor. I would highly recommend their course(s). William L.
I took the NRA Basic Pistol Shooting Course in June 2020, and it was exactly as advertised. Classroom setting until breaking for lunch, and then the rest of the day at the Rainbow range for hands on work. You buy your own lunch.
The class setting was clean, well set up and included hands-on work with firearms. The hands on portion included seated and standing exercises with unloaded firearms and a laser target. The focus there is on breathing, aiming and trigger control. Getting hands on in a calm environment is very helpful, especially with folks who are visibly nervous touching a firearm. Gary, his wife Konnie and Jack had three stations, so the nine students each got valuable time and direction.
After lunch, the set up at Rainbow was private because they used an instructor range. No other shooters wear nearby, so it was not as intimidating. Three shooter tables were set up, and three instructors worked with one student at a time on 22 pistol target shooting while the other folks sat well behind the line. I can’t emphasize how much help that one on one assistance was. Some of the shooters were visibly nervous, but the instructors took them through baby steps if needed. The focus was on aiming and trigger control. Lots of repetition with the goal of building confidence and muscle memory while safely handling the pistol.
The instructors met students precisely where they needed to be met, and so more comfortable or naturally adept students were able to go further. The session wrapped up with the opportunity to shoot 45, full and compact 9MM and some other odds and ends.
This is a great class, in a great setting taught by seasoned instructors. It was well worth the investment. 06/10/2020
I was very pleased with their training for my CCW renewal and Gary and Connie were awesome! I’ll be taking their tactical courses. Highly recommend them. 01/2021
I had my CCW renewal course today. L&L is a great company to get your CCW or Renewal. Gary, Connie and their other instructor were all very good. They are very professional and had a lot of good instructions and picked up new techniques that I had not received from my previous CCW class. They are very clear with their instructions and kept the class safe and moving along. They were very helpful with the less experienced shooters as well which made the rest of us feel safer. I highly recommend L&L for CCW or renewal.
Just a tip for newbies. Please spend time with your weapon and get VERY familiar with it and have some range time before coming to the CCW class. Otherwise this uses up quite a bit of time from the instructors and ties up
and slows down the class.
The instructors and well as your fellow shooters will greatly appreciate it and will give them peace of mind that you are competent with your gun. May 9, 2021
Gary & Konnie are excellent instructors. They focus heavily on safety and fundamentals, but always with an eye toward the whatever goal you are trying to reach. Very easy to learn from, not intimidating at all. I highly recommend them! Glynna H. November 8, 2021
I recently took a basic pistol shooting course with Konnie, and learned so much. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to purchase a pistol. Thank you -04/18/2020
Very knowledgeable and qualified to teach the fundamentals of handling firearms. For a first time firearm owner, she has gained my respect to those who own guns in a responsible way. Victor V. May 19, 2022
I was very apprehensive about taking the class but the instructors Gary and Konnie explained and taught us in such a way that I felt comfortable and safe with their help. Thank guys so much and I will definitely recommend your course to my friends. May 3, 2021
Gary & Konnie & jack provided excellent preparation, training and understanding and confidents on using a handgun in many different scenarios. Gary is a great instructor. I very glad to have been training with L & L Training. James C Jun3 9, 2022
Thank you for being patient, trustworthy, & knowledgeable! – Course Evaluation
Amazing firearms education . I left their course with so much knowledge and training. Everything was organized and professional. Instructors were patient and attentive. I finished their course today feeling confident and comfortable with firearms. I look forward to taking more of their courses. I highly recommend them.-01/26/2020
“5-STAR” training from L&L Firearm training. Gary, Konnie and Jack instructed an initial CCW Training course that was well worth it’s cost and time. We’ll orchestrated, patient, professional, and proficient in material and hands on firearm safety and live fire instructions. I’ll be sure to become a member, in addition to participating in upcoming and future Firearm training classes. Luis V. July 13, 2021

Had a blast shooting today, thanks to Gary! He was patient and thorough! He really broke it down and made me feel safe! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Can’t wait for the next time!
THE BEST EXPERIENCE I’VE EVER HAD IN MY LIFE!!!! Went into the basic pistol class with absolute no knowledge about firearms, I never even seen one so close in my life, let alone shoot one. The instructor Konnie was so exceptional in the teaching and structure of her class that I actually had the confidence and excitement when heading over to the range portion of the class. At the range, Konnie and her son, Jack, were so encouraging and completely engaged with all the students including myself. They helped tweak the little things that were throwing off my accuracy when it came to shooting and they were non-stop completely supportive in everything I did. I’m so thankful that I came to L&L Firearms Training to learn from this amazing family! I will definitely be returning to improve and grow my skills in the art of marksmanship. Thank you Konnie and Jack for providing me with the knowledge to safely exercise my 2nd Amendment rights and finding a lifelong hobby that I absolutely am in love with now! Sara S. October 2, 2021
I had my first class with Konnie and I am going back for more! She is so knowledgeable, kind and patient, which is refreshing! Can’t wait to learn more and hone my skills at L & L. Elise D. April 8, 2022
I am a returning student of Gary and Konnie. I took the Ladies Basic Pistol Class and then the CCW class. I was impressed with the the presentation of the information, the organization of the class and how both Gary and Connie are knowledgeable and make you feel ease. The CCW course was done in a hybrid model due to Covid restrictions, but I didn’t feel cheated. Gary runs a tight ship at the range and provides good supportive feedback. I would highly recommend any of their classes.
Kim Oliver 08/09/2020
Very informative and educational but best of all very fun!
Gary is awesome! I wouldn’t know a thing about guns if it weren’t for Gary. Now I’m hooked!
I was very happy to have my training at L& L Firearms to get my permit to carry a firearm. My trainer, Konnie was very knowledgeable and good at enforcing the points that you needed to know to be safe and how to properly handle each handgun. She was an excellent trainer. She suggested the perfect handguns for me to try and gave me a very good over all understanding of semi automatics and pistols.I really enjoyed the training and left with a better appreciation of handguns and living safely with handguns. I highly encourage women and men to train with Connie. 01/2021
First class. Good, clear and informative instruction. Felt very safe for a beginner and it was fun!
I took this class and qualification today. Gary and Konnie are very knowledgeable and took the time to instruct and insure that everyone in the class understood and performed the tasks correctly and safely. I will without hesitation refer my friends and family to them. Thank you both for all you do. 05/20/2020
Highly recommend L&L Firearms Training, we learned a lot through professional, highly knowledgeable, and experienced instructors Konnie and Jack. Although it was a long day, it was an empowering experience and looking forward to attending more classes in the future to gain more skills. March 2, 2021
I used to be afraid of Guns. Gary taught me everything I needed to know with patience and kindness. Thanks Gary.
Oh my gosh Konnie! What a blast we all had. So informative! You are incredible, we all said how we felt that you really took time with each of us and truly wanted us to shoot well. I am hoping to join the class on the 30th. I’m gonna see if the girls want to as well. Thank you so much again. Can’t wait to shoot with ya again!! Sherri W. July 2, 2022
I learned a lot! I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning how to shoot a rifle/shotgun. -Facebook
Comfortable Learning Environment. Christopher M. June 7, 2022
I’ve been to a couple CCW courses and L&L is the best. Gary and Konnie are very friendly, provides easy to learn in depth training. My favorite part of the training was the malfunction walkthrough and practical application. Definitely will be returning for future training. Roy D. July 17, 2022
L&L firearms San Diego CCW class in Temecula was awesome. Instructors are proficient and easy going. Looking forward to taking other courses offered by Gary and Konnie. Dan A. September 5, 2021
Highly recommend you take a class with these folks. Very professional, informative, and helpful. The instructors are patient, and very knowledgeable. You will come out of class with the necessary tools to become a safe & accurate shooter. If you own a gun, plan on owning a gun, or would simply like to learn…I encourage you to sign up with L & L. Raul P. July 13, 2021
I signed up for the NRA Basic Pistol Class and was thoroughly impressed with the the course. I felt that the classroom and range portions were perfectly matched with regards to length, learning the fundamentals & above all, safety. The instructors, Gary and Konnie, are extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the course yet they put out the information in a way that makes complete sense to students that have little to no background in firearms. L&L Firearms will be my #1 recommendation for all friends and family going forward. Also, I highly recommend adding the extra pistols to test out following the NRA portion. This really helped me decide exactly which pistol(s) I preferred. 05/07/2021
Amazing experience! Completed the 8 hour woman’s beginning pistol class!! So patient! Most important: safe and they made sure to drill in the safety! 08/31/2020

I plan to take some more advanced training classes down the road. Hopefully Gary will be an instructor for my next training class!!! 08/31/2020
Gary and Connie are very informative and will make the process less intimidating for those who are thinking twice about taking this course. Gary and Connie make sure you leave with the basic knowledge and understanding of CCW. In fact they do such a great job I wanna sign up with them for further training. 07/20/2020
