    Another well organized, well thought out class from Ian. He has the ability to teach shooters, both newer and more experienced at the same time. There were great insights in class.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
