    “Mr. Zamora is a great instructor, he goes far over and beyond the call of duty to clearly illustrate without ambiguity the consequences legal,
    financial, moral and otherwise of using (on a whim) a firearm to protect yourself. He clearly illustrates the fact that this is to be used to PROTECT yourself and not to a vigilante cop wannabe. There are consequences for that and he clearly covers that in his course. He was recommended to me by a coworker, and I am very thankful to both; my coworker and Mr. Zamora for what I learned in his class.

    Mr. Zamora takes a very personal role in his class, he instantly becomes your friend, and you know once the class is over you would still be able to call on him for help and support; like for instance when you manage to jam your gun after cleaning it, because you forgot to put the spring inside and then closed it. Well not to worry Mr. Zamora owns just about any gun imaginable (exaggerating a bit) and he can and would instruct you over the phone (using the same exact model of gun you own) how to get your gun un-jammed w/o having to pay a premium for doing so.

    Great instructor I would certainly recommend him to anyone wishing to get a CHL, sometimes is not just the class or the course, but the long lasting friendship and support you can gain from him. In addition to the CHL class Mr. Zamora also teaches personal protection classes, that can help even physically challenged individuals how to use the things they use to walk around (such as canes, wheel chairs, walkers etc) for self defense, things that should be obvious to someone using this help but often are not. He is highly recommended from my part.”
