"We are writing this recommendation letter for Mathew Bayley. In 2007 we took a series of lessons from Mathew to become more proficient with our pistols and to complete the course for a concealed carry permit. Mathew’s training was superb and we learned a great deal about how to shoot more accurately and how to protect ourselves should the need arise. A very significant factor in the lessons was shooting range safety. We are both very comfortable now on the range. Using Matt's techniques we learned to maintain a safe practice environment. Mathew makes the lessons easy to follow and maintains a very professional approach.
We have both received our concealed carry permits from Eagle County and would recommend taking either private or group lessons from Mr. Bayley."

Applied Concealed Carry

                                                   “keep it simple.” 

With half a dozen concealed carry techniques, anyone can defend themselves and their family against 90% of possible attacks.
