I had very little experience with a handgun before taking Cody’s classes through Modus Operandi. I wanted to gain some basic knowledge and become more confident in my shooting abilities. I even had a CHL permit, but by no means did I feel prepared to carry a handgun. I have taken levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 from Cody. I am very impressed by his teaching ability. He is easy to understand and can demonstrate any skill he is trying to teach. After taking the first few classes with Cody, I was amazed with how much information there is to learn in regards to shooting a handgun. I am now confident to carry my handgun in any situation and my abilities have improved tremendously since I began working with Cody. What started out as a mild interest in defensive pistol skills has grown into a passion for handgun shooting. I would recommend Cody’s classes and instruction to anyone interested in defensive pistol shooting. Whether you are new to shooting or carry a handgun on the job, you can learn something from Cody Wilhelm.Todd - Amarillo, TX
