This is an awesome group. My wife and I travel from the Elizabeth City area to participate in various programs including but not limited to TWAW and Winchester Marksmanship Qualification Program. Kris and George provide a high level of safe and professional instruction at a personal level that is both required and/or requested. I highly recommend this group to people of all skill levels.
