About 2nd Amend Training

The owner and founder of 2nd Amend Training LLC started the company with the idea that everybody should have the chance and space to learn how to handle firearms in a safe and controlled environment. In 2022 I finally followed through on the idea I've had for a while by becoming certified as a firearms instructor and to taking the leap of faith by officially starting my business.

Reviews

DC Concealed Carry

5 stars

From: Jay E.

I’ve taken several training courses, and this was by far the best. Our instructor, Cliff Chambers, (2nd Amendment Training) carefully explained the subject matter, repeated asked for questions, and engaged us in dialogue. In addition, we had excellent safety focussed and practical pistol scenarios. At the range, he was a great range instructor, with several other shooters inquiring if he was an instructor. All the participants in our group passed both the written and shooting portions of our multi state (UT, VA, MD, DC, PA) concealed carry permit class. I’m looking forward to taking another class with him, and recommend him without reservation! 

DC Concealed Carry

5 stars

From: Dajona J.

The class was great, as well as the instructor and he was very knowledgeable. The class was very informative and interesting with active movement drills, not just death by PowerPoint . Highly recommend and I would go back for renewals & other advanced training techniques.

Multi-State Concealed Carry

5 stars

From: Tameka P.

Despite the fact that I'm not a well-experienced shooter, I received praise from staff at the gun range as I was leaving because of how good my shots looked on my target. I credit Clifton for that. He gave ample opportunity for questions and revisiting hands-on practice concepts during the classroom portion of the course. At the range, he gave consistent feedback, reinforcing techniques that were proper and correcting those that weren't. When helping adjust my form, Clifton creatively helped me connect the dots on what my barriers to proper aim were, and he gave clear and effective instructions on how to resolve them. I highly recommend his courses! You'll definitely leave feeling more confident in your abilities and knowledge of safe practices.

Maryland Handgun Qualification License (HQL)

5 stars

From: Jeffrey M.

I’m a first-time shooter who took the Maryland HQL class led by certified firearms instructor Clifton and I had a wonderful experience learning how to use a firearm safely and responsibly. During the classroom portion of the class, he’s great about going over the basic rules of handling a firearm and teaching you how to pick up, hold, grip, and shoot a pistol properly. During the one-hour of pistol instruction that takes place at a nearby range after class, he’s excellent at making sure you feel comfortable and helping you with proper breathing and correcting your form and grip to have better aim. He’s also really good about responding to email and answering my numerous questions, such as what would be a good first gun for me based on how I shot at the range and my hand size. He knows firearms and I highly recommend training with him if you’re a first-time shooter like me or someone looking to advance their firearms skills.

Women's Basic Pistol / Concealed Carry

5 stars

From: Denisha E.

I was very nervous as it was my first time in a pistol class. Clifton is an amazing and very patient instructor. While I initially struggled with some of the concepts, he walked me through them and built my confidence in shooting.
