Awesome class

Rated 5 out of 5

I cannot express how happy I am that I took my CCW class with Jim. My husband and I had been talking about me taking a class for a couple of years, and I honestly was dreading it. I wasn’t looking forward to sitting through the material and was nervous about shooting with an instructor I wasn’t familiar with. Jim instantly took away all my doubts and nerves. The class was extremely informative, and the help that Jim gave while shooting was amazing. I want to set up a private lesson just to learn even more from him. Definitely worth the money and time to take this class!

Jim was way better than just your average classroom ‘teacher’ he really did have a way of getting all of us engaged in the conversation, and taking charge of our own learning. The class was enjoyable, Jim is not only very knowledgeable, but he knows how to convey that information over to his students in a way that everyone can understand. I’ll absolutely be back for more classes hopefully in the very near future!


Simply the BEST!

I am utterly speechless as to how much more prolific I became with a firearm in a matter of a couple hours. Not only did he teach me techniques; but explained the practical purpose and how they related to real life situations. Not only did he explain it but he explained it in a manner I could understand. Jim watches you throughout the training session and turns every movement and action into a teaching session. I am extremely fortunate to have been introduced to Jim and Shooting Performance Institute. I would recommend him to all my family and friends.

While I have shot for years and considered myself a pretty proficient shooter, the difference that Jim Erwin made within hours was astounding.
Albert Einstein is quoted with saying: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” This is embodied in Jim instruction. Not only is Jim able to express what he is trying to help the shooter accomplish, but his explanations are clear and understandable. The coaching, the drills, and the insights, are all top-notch and I consider myself fortunate to have run across Jim and the Shooting Performance Institute.

There simply is not enough space to say what an AMAZING trainer Jim is. He has trained myself & my 13 Year Old Son. We have attended Private Training Sessions as well as Group Classes. Jim absolutely will never disappoint you! But it doesn’t stop there… He genuinely cares about your individual success as when you enter the world you are a part of Team Kraken and HIS reputation. He is always willing to answer the phone after the fact to make sure you are on the right track. In a world filled with choices, I wholeheartedly believe you should train with someone who has done it and was one of the elite, that’s Jim. My son and I have never finished a training with Jim that didn’t include booking our next time slot.
