“Can't say enough great things about Bear Ventures and Richard. He has a perfect balance between keeping the classes informative and engaging, while appealing to people with broadly different skill and experience levels, while injecting humor and levity at just the right dose and also steering toward the conservative end of the spectrum. He walks the line between the clear and not so clear laws and real world experience to keep you and your family safe.”
"Richard with Bear Ventures is an extremely professional instructor who draws on his real world, law enforcement experience to personalize his courses. He brings a comfortable sense of humor to serious subjects and keeps the material interesting."
