When I talk to people who are new to firearms and want to take a CHP class, I always recommend him.
I took the class when my wife wanted a CHP. I neither needed a class to get a CHP nor do I have any intention of getting a CHP...but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
It's very thorough and and as you noted, his printed material is top drawer.
Take all that and add a man that is a solid OC'er as well and you have something to be proud of. I don't know any other CHP instructors that can make that claim.
