I took the CCW Class with Paul. Paul was a very professional and knowledgeable teacher who presented the information clearly and simply. During the practical portion of the test, he gave many shooting tips in order to help us learn from our mistakes and improve in shooting. I highly recommend Paul and his team.

The teacher named Paul was very unpleasant to be around. He would say very unprofessional rude comments. Since he was in a position of power you felt like you couldn’t tell him anything. Since he was the one teaching the class. Also when we were done with the class he was pushing everyone to give him a good review. He was not taking a no for an answer. Very unusual and uncomfortable situation to be around.

I have almost no history of Posting reviews. Many businesses deliver as promised, and that's expected. That's what you're paying for; Paul and Sentri Institute go beyond, he connects with his students, and adjusts his lessons to the student on the fly. I have now taken a few CCW classes in different states, and Paul has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of AZ, UT, and CA laws, and most importantly the interpretation of the laws. His training of firearms safety, techniques, and shooter movements is superb. He is organized, efficient, and genuinely interested in improvement. Coupled with the outstanding range at FT3 this is the company of choice for a CCW class.

I love the fact that he has real life experiences and he jokes and laugh a lot which makes this class less intense. I ask a lot of questions and he was very patient on answering them. He also taught me more than normal, he personally do a one on one and advice you. I would recommend this for any beginners or advance person. You will enjoy this class, I did

Paul was a fantastic instructor. I did a CCW many years back before taking his course, and he is miles ahead of the competition. Lots of technical and physical instruction with out it being too much for people to process. Everything is broken down into very clear, precise, and reasonable portions. Also, Paul explains things with logic in mind, nothing is said or done without a reason!

I’m a complete beginner, never held a gun, let alone shoot one and this class completely took away my anxiety! It’s a great course that teaches you really thorough basics without being overwhelming.We spent a good hour going over basics, safety measures and other useful information and then headed down to the range. Paul was so helpful with proper posture. I got better and better with each shot! Definitely recommend!!

Took my CCW course from Paul today and couldn't be more satisfied with the experience. The class room training was relevant using current examples and trends. The hands on portion was paced perfectly with enough practice and training to be able to score 100% on the hands on qualification. I was able to qualify with my three handguns no problem. Paul is a real professional willing to take the time and effort to make sure that you not only receive the proper information, but that you are able to understand it and put it into practice! Great Job Paul! Thank you much for the fantastic training!!

The Firearm safety course for children was outstanding! This course is a great way to start learning as a beginner or to enhance the skills already taught!

Paul is a great hands on instructor. He will guide you through the written lecture part of the class. He explains in detail gun safety and the laws in California that pertain to having a CCW license. Highly recommend Paul's class if you want a thorough professional and personable experience.

I really enjoyed the class and the hands on experience with Paul. He's fun and very helpful. If you ever want to take maybe one of his course, you will never leave without the improvements by 30% as he said and that's true. Highly recommended.

This is a really great way to get your CCW training done. Paul explains everything in a way that is very understandable. You will see a difference in the way you hold and shoot with accuracy. I recommend Sentri Institute to everyone i know and anyone who needs their CCW training done. I will be back for more training with Sentri Institute.

Paul is a really good instructor. Good communication skills and he does know how to teach you the fundamentals and also correcting you. My skills were off but after a few minutes of him telling me that I should do it a certain way, my skills improved by a whooping 50%! Thats how good he is as an instructor! I recommend Paul 10/10!

Instantly Verifiable ResultsSentri offers an ego-less, concise, and an instantly verifiable basic firearms training class. Paul Peng instructs in a simple and easy-to-grasp fashion. He strips away what you don’t need and gives you the fundamentals needed to shoot with accuracy. This is verifiable on the range.On the range, we put in a number of rounds, at three different distances, all with additional hands-on instruction. Amazingly, our targets display better accuracy and tighter groupings than other targets on the range that day. This truly validates the knowledge Sentri drops on us. Additionally, Paul aptly pinpoints why other targets don’t look as good as ours thus reinforcing the fundamentals learned.We will definitely go with Sentri and Paul for further instruction here on out!!!Updated: 8/30/21Since last year I took two other classes with Sentri Institute. One was the CCW course. Which consisted of class instruction, a written test and a range test. There was a lot of material to cover and again, Paul presented it in a concise and easy to understand way. I was able to pass both the written and range test easily.The second class I took was the A.L.I.V.E. training course. It's a straight forward plan on what to do if one is ever caught in an active shooter situation. We went through statistics, situational awareness, concepts, and physically participated in a number of scenarios to help internalize the process. In some aspects, the course concepts may be hard to grasp, but Paul puts it all together so it sticks.

Paul Peng is by far the best instructors out there. Before my groupings were all over the place. But with the golden tip Paul instructed by using the trigger press and slightly hearing that click. My world changed from night and day. See pictures of the groupings.

Great class! Paul packs a lot of information in a day. Learned a new trigger hold, that was very beneficial for improving my accuracy. Looking forward to seeing what other classes are available.

I took basic course and looking forward to advanced one (AKA 'have more fun'). Paul not only explained every major point (including not obvious legal risk factors), but small corrections here and there made a huge difference to my accuracy at the end of the course.Some points:* Based on REAL world scenarios.* Instructor with a real experience, not the instructor 'who just knows how to'* You'll definitely get progress on aiming and hitting the target.The good stuff!
