Dear Timmy,

I didn’t want to leave the country without thanking you and letting you know how fortunate I feel to have been introduced to shooting with you as the instructor. You are a fabulous teacher, both at the shooting range and in the classroom.
I’ve done a lot of teaching and I can really appreciate what it takes to hold a classes attention for 10 hours and then have to make sure beginners don’t create any safety issues out on a range. (Better you than me :)). You were able to hold our attention, keep us laughing, and raise thought provoking issues, with the driest of material. I think those of us who took your class are spoiled and won’t be able to tolerate another instructor.
I’ve shown my targets to a number of people who can’t believe I shot that well. I told them that’s what really great teaching can do.
Thank you so much for accommodating my schedule, and all the time you gave me. You opened up a world to me I didn’t even know I was interested in.

Thanks again for your patience, for sharing your expertise with me, and your terrific teaching,
Alison Brause

Subject: RE: CHL Class

Mr Harkins Good Morning,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for spending time with my family on Saturday.
The confidence you gave my wife, Rexanne, is going to make a huge difference in her comfort level when we take our CHL class on the 27th. It is so important for her to have the mystery of her new weapon removed and the proficiency necessary to complete the class in place.
More importantly the time you spent with my daughter, Kaylin, will ensure her ability to grow into a more confident marksman and the lessons she learned may save her life someday. This as a parent is an invaluable lesson that can be assessed no monetary value. I believe your teaching will be remembered by her as a life lesson long after we are gone and will be shared by her children.
I am honored to have met you and Terry at Bullitproof was more than correct in his recommendation for you to be the right man for the job. I hope our acquaintance can grow into a lifelong friendship ( although I’m sure getting in to your Circle of Trust will mandate some sort of background check and Top Secret Clearance ) and that this will be the first of many afternoons spent shooting together.

With great respect and thanx,
