"That still makes my heart pound days later. Very real scenarios and excellent training. No one knows how they will react in these situations. “Your body can’t go where your brain has never been” is Very True. I’ve taken this course 3 times and EVERY time I come away with not only knowledge of how to handle things but also what my weaknesses are. THANK YOU so much for providing this service to the “every day” person who is concerned about the society we all live in. Thank you Becky and Donna for ALL that you do."
"Thank you so much! I will surely recommend Point Black , You all guys are very helpful and very approachable persons! You all guys are awesome, It was my honor and my pleasure to be part of this group, I really enjoyed and learned a lot."
" The information I learned in this class is invaluable... it’s literally a lifesaver. You can think about the what if’s all day long and how you’d react and that’s great. More people need to do that. But until your brain is put through the stress of a situation you have no idea how you will react, or even if your training has been enough. I want to wonder and I don’t have to, thanks to you y’all. Donna Anthony and Becky Bowen, thank you both for doing what you do! It truly was an eye opener and I can’t wait to come back for more."

"Hello. I recently attended the Introduction to Basic Pistol course and it was fantastic. DeAnna has an immense knowledge of weapons and self-defense and did not come off as condescending, critical or annoyed with those of us new or fearful of handguns. In addition, during the class she allowed the more experienced attendee's to share their experience and knowledge. In the class there was a student proficient with long guns and highly anxious of hand guns, DeAnna gave her the time and attention she needed while still being able to guide and support me as needed. She even alleviated my own anxiety of shooting with her calm, caring and patient demeanor. Most importantly DeAnna did not freak out or panic or raise her voice when my muzzle was pointed in an unsafe direction or when my trigger finger was absentmindedly too close to trigger. I will highly recommend Point Blank to others and look forward to attending more courses. Thank you for making me a confident, responsible gun owner."

"I learn SO much every time I take a class from Donna Anthony and Point Blank Firearms & Self Defense Training, LLC. Playing the “cook” aka “victim” in the robbery scenario was harder than I expected but it opened my eyes to a whole new level of thinking and preparing myself for life in this rough world. Thanks so much for realistic scenarios and having WOMEN be the “criminals”. Love all of these instructors Patti Bonnie Beth Reoch Alcazar Becky Bowen @DonnaAnthony and Rhonda Sego Moore"
"This class is a must take. I learned so much and my brain is flaming. You can sit and listen to do's and don'ts, walk throughs on how to handle a situation however this course will expose your strengths and weaknesses. This exposure is not meant to discourage you but to encourage you to learn from the mistakes and for further refinement of your strengths. I live life by one simple motto, "always be a life long learner". I learned something very important about myself and that is, YES I can and will stand up and defend myself, my family and my church family should the situation arise. Thank you Donna Anthony and Becky Bowen!! Already looking forward to next year."
"Definitely a great course for a beginner shooter. Start from explaining the guns and parts and how they work onto to shooting gun. it was a very helpful. I look forward to taking the next course!"
"Very informational , a lot more information than had expected. Looking forward to taking more classes. Being a lot more self confident and being able to protect myself"
