" I recently had the pleasure of attending the Ultimate Handgun class. I have shot pistols in a range environment for years but what I experienced today was a once in a life time experience. The respect, expertise and professionalism that was exhibited by each and every member of Covered6's training staff that day was only matched by their ability and desire to impart this knowledge to the class. I have a new found respect and appreciation for what our dedicated Law Enforcement officers potentially face every day. In summation, I highly recommend Covered6 to anyone who is interested in first class real world firearms training and I cannot wait to take my next class with Covered6!"

I traveled from Las Vegas to take the TCCC that was being offered. I was going into this class as a "12 year on the streets in Vegas" paramedic, with med-evac/flight, and ER paramedic experience as well. Some of that knowledge and experience came into play, but that mentality also was a hard one to "curb" as well. Having to switch from "civilian street" medic to "combat medic" mentality was something that took a conscious effort for the first little bit. We as civilian medic have like 6 different airway choices and then to tell me I only have "2 choices", I definitely raised an eye brow, but I was eager to learn.  

Val and Patrick were our instructors for 2 days. Both are "completely dialed" and Patrick had no problem going into "more depth", on the medical portion if needed. Both were very knowledgeable and very passionate about what they were teaching. Scenario day was an eye opener. The stress of the actual task and skills at hand wasn't the challenge for me, as was having to work in a team where the range of experience was different for everyone, and you just figure out how to make it work. Instructors were great about critiquing you and getting you "psyched" for what was "about to come".

I have been raving about this course, and it was such a GREAT experience. Well worth every penny. You will use what you learn, in so many different aspects if the need ever arose. The motto of "doing the most with the least amount" rings so true. With the way the world is going now (shootings at schools, night clubs, grocery stores), you just never know when you will need "to leap into action", and knowing you have the "know how" to help... totally worth it's weight in gold.

​"Since attending the Executive Protection Class #11, I have had much success in this industry from working major events in Beverly Hills to working for a high profile entertainer, this all was possible due to Covered6 training me. The Executive Protection course is very intense and real world training that should not be taken lightly. Covered6 instills the tools needed for the warrior to operate when dealing with aggressive crowds to operating with a high profile family. The instructors at Covered6 are EXTREMELY professional, tactically proficient, and give the student real world scenarios during the hands on training. Executive Protection is a science, the Instructors at Covered6 are the Scientists'! Steel sharpens steel and there is a sense of a warrior family once walking through the doors of this facility. Hats off and much thank you to the Covered6 team! Words can not express how happy I am for the opportunities they have blessed me with."

​​"I can't say enough about Covered 6 and the EP training that they provide. After successful completion of the two day course I was put to work the following weekend. I have since worked over a dozen details with a very professional and pro active team. Recently we were privileged to work along side of Secret Service. In addition to the EP work Covered 6 found me a full time position that fits me perfect. I have great respect for all the instructors and owners of both companies. Thank You Covered 6 for being there, being professional, and setting such a high standard of service and training."

"I researched various options for obtaining this information and training. Covered 6 was recommended to me by my brother, Captain Steve McLean of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Alta Dena Station. His recommendation allowed me to experience the high level of education you offer. I was thoroughly impressed with the professionalism and information that I can put to use in my pursuit of a career in executive protection. I would recommend Covered 6 to anyone searching for the highest level of protective education that is available. Thank you again and I look forward to staying in touch and continuing my education through Covered 6."

Russel McLean


"I just completed the ADAPT training at my workplace. The training was excellent and I am amazed at how helpful and simple the techniques are, as taught by Robert and Chris. I am confident that I could protect myself at home or in the workplace, if I were to encounter a violent person. Thank you Covered 6, for coming to our campus and offering this training!"

"I came to Coverd6 for the NRA Pistol Instructor Certification Course. Ive shoot guns since seven years old, competing in both Steel Challenge & IDPA handgun matches since 2006 with a few tips from fellow shooters and one private lesson. However, over the past year, I had given my wife and a friend a personal shooting lesson and felt that I needed professional guidance on instructing people. On my first day, Robert casually introduced himself and said, Make yourself at home?. Throughout both days of instruction/training he imparted the necessary info to all of us along with a TON of EXTRA helpful info in an easy, fun way. Coverd6 understands what their customers want and need and exceeds their customer's expectations. I highly recommend Coverd6 and I am now planning to attend several more classes and looking forward to again receiving way more than expected." 

Firearms Instructor


"How do you write a testimonial when you have so many accolades that exceed the 1000 character limit? That is the dilemma I ran into with Covered6. In my experience thus far I noted the instructors as being both professional and personable. Providing both a safe learning environment and a wealth of information should one want to go beyond the basics of weapons training. Having spent considerable time in academia and transitioning to a more martial background I thought it prudent to learn firearms from those that instruct operators and special tactical groups alike. In the epochal shift of violence at the domestic level (vs international) I believe it's important for an individual to be able to defend his/her family. It is not enough to simply own a firearm, one must constantly train so that the weapon becomes an extension of oneself. I am confident that Covered6 will provide me with the skills necessary should the need arise to defend those who matter most in my life."

"I signed up for the Home Defense course and was extremely pleased with every aspect of the training. From the classroom instruction to force on force,Chris was so good at teaching that it was easy to learn what you could have different or better during training to have a positive outcome and make the correct and sometimes life changing decisions in defending your home. It's nice to see instructors that are so passionate and enjoy what they do. Great class and i will be back for other classes. Thanks guys!"



I contacted Covered 6 while unemployed and very quickly received top flight training, job placement assistance, and even funding. I had the pleasure of taking three courses at their accommodating facility and had several job leads. Staff at Covered 6 are highly capable of sharing their knowledge in a way that I easily understood. Not to mention the networking done with great classmates. I'm signed up for my fourth class and will be back for more. Thanks for helping me continue my personal growth and education.

"As an Executive Coach, I spend my days helping professionals define what excellence will look like for them personally and professionally and then go about helping them close gaps to achieve those objectives. Covered6 is an obvious example of just such an end story that I would refer clients to as a service, but also as a business success story. From the facilities - the way that things are organized and "squared away", to the detailed classroom portion of the day, on into the warehouse for dry fire training/practice and ultimately out on the range - you guys exemplify professionalism. We had a near 1:1 Instructor/Student ratio, and while I realize that may not always be possible, it was appreciated. The bottom line is for a guy with practically no firearm experience and absolutely no training, I now feel safe and fundamentally competent with my weapon and I thank you for that. I'm looking forward to the tactical class, so keep me in the loop."

Bill Hart
Executive Coach


"I've had experience with the AR platform since the "pre ban " days. Now I work for a county agency whose training budget is severely lacking, instruction uninspired, and priority seems to be an after thought. I sought out Covered 6 to get a solid "foundation" with my weapons platform, minimize previous training scars, and set myself up for more advanced instruction in the near future. These guys delivered! The student to instructor ratio was fantastic, the instructors are dialed in, and no question or concern went unaddressed. I witness staff gong above and beyond on students gear issues (invaluable when time is money) and taking the time to work on alternate techniques that worked better for individual students. There staff was constantly supportive and taught with passion and attitude that instilled confidence in every student, from newbies to experienced operators. I will not hesitate to recommend their services to my friends and professional colleagues. Good to go!"

"I just took the Tactical Carbine course and I am thoroughly impressed. I have been shooting the AR-15 platform for over 20 years and I must admit that I thought I had it locked down pretty tightly. Well? not so much! The instructors are top notch and have an outstanding teaching style that keeps you engaged and eager to learn more. My class covered the gamut as far as students are concerned. Three of us are LE, a few were experienced shooters some novice and one had never picked up a rifle before. By the end of the shooting day every one of us was hitting a torso sized steel target at 100 yards consistently, not to mention the cool stuff we did with our rifles. Ive been in law enforcement with a large sized department in So California for several years and have been fortunate to have received some great training over the years and this course lands right up there with the best of them."

LE Officer


"I took the AR-15 Armorer's course. This course taught me nearly every single aspect of my rifle. I now have the knowledge on what every part does, what it's function is and I feel confident that I could build a rifle from a part kit. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to truly know their weapon."

Reserve Officer


"When I signed up for the basic carbine class I was a complete novice, never having fired a rifle. Chris and Dave and rest of the excellent crew at Covered Six started me out with several hours in their tactical facility. Safety is absolutely #1 here - you begin in the classroom, learning about all facets of firearms. This segment is very thorough and covers not only the safe use necessary for your later practical experience but also delves into changing laws, product modifications, military and law enforcement applications and other subjects that promote depth and understanding from a professional perspective. We proceeded to their action room for practice with real firearms but plastic ammunition. This training was amazing and the pace and mode of training was obviously highly refined over a long period of time. Then to the range. By the end of the day I was not only shooting, I was able to hit a four inch square target from 25 yards during a hostage situation. Incredible!"

"Covered6 has been delivering superior quality training in a professional manner since the start of my involvement with them. In the operations I have been on, including details for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the President of the United States (make no mistake, those were certainly not the norm) These attributes are completely transferred into the training that they provide. The training is comprehensive and includes real world application and experiences with verifiable results, all taught by high quality instructors from various federal agencies and former as well as current law enforcement personnel. The networking opportunities gained through Covered6 and its affiliates are fundamental and quality as well. All agencies linked to C6 are top notch and from what I can tell, the best in their game."
