Read what some of my students say about their experience taking my class:

I just wanted to pass along my thoughts regarding a class taught by Mr. Kau.   I think it was a wonderful idea to offer such a class within your store.  Mr. Kau was simply a brilliant instructor.   He showed great patience with the members of the class.  He was quite articulate & most certainly had a vast depth of knowledge regarding the subject matter.


I know that shooting a gun can be a daunting thought for the uninitiated.   Mr. Kau definitely put the class at ease with his easy going manner and sense of professionalism.   I felt so much more confident after the 3 hour class had ended.  I would like to pass along my thanks to you for offering such a service.


I will definitely be returning to your store for range time & future purchases, & this is partially due to the extremely positive experience I had this past Tuesday evening.


Thank you for the service that you provide, I truly had a wonderful time! Best Regards, Frank




We had the pleasure of being in your shop for the first time.  People rarely take the time to compliment a business owner, but have no problem complaining.  Being a business owner I know the feeling well when you get a feel good letter. It's nice to know what's going on in your business.  Your entire staff could not have been nicer, well trained and extremely knowledgeable.  You are most fortunate to have such a fine staff.


The purpose of our trip to Gat was to take a lesson with Gerry Kau, which is the main reason I am writing this letter.  What a wonderful instructor.  There were four of us (my husband)  and another couple (our neighbors), all of us felt the same way.  We talked all the way back to Highland Park.  He is smart, no nonsense, great sense of humor and like I said a great teacher.  We all walked away with so much information about gun safety and techniques.


We would all refer Gerry to anyone looking for an instructor. We want to wish you a very happy healthy holiday season. Barbara M.




The In Home Defense class today with Jerry was fabulous!   It was a Mother's Day present from my USAF son!  The training and education of safety and shooting for me was clear, concise and a wonderful experience.  My son who has some experience also felt he learned loads.  We both left feeling more comfortable with home safety and in the shooting range. I highly recommend taking this class with Jerry no matter what your age (I am a grandmother!!!), your level of experience or never held a gun before the class.  It was a positive morning!  Thank you so much!   Debbie K. 




Just wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge the wonderful job that Jerry Kau did recently....  My wife and I enrolled in one of Jerry's classes this past week and could not have been more
pleased and impressed.


As newcomers to the sport, we had absolutely no prior experience with small arms prior to Jerry's class, except for having utilized your gun range once on our own a few weeks previously. ( By the way, our experience with your [GAT GUNS] employees at that time was phenomenally positive, as well.  They were incredibly patient with us and very, very informative...).


Jerry started exactly where we needed to begin, with the absolute basics. In short order, we had progressed to the point that we were both quite comfortable handling a weapon and were ready to progress to the firing range.  Once there, Jerry again did a masterful job instructing us, to the point that we both again felt quite comfortable with firing the weapons and were pleased with our
improvement under Jerry's tutelage.  Jerry was unfailingly polite and encouraging and we felt that he was a great resource.


In short, we simply cannot say enough good things about our experience and we will have absolutely no qualms in recommending Jerry and your range to friends and colleagues.

Thank You, Brad Melliere



I took a beginning pistol class with Jerry last night and I just wanted to tell you what a great experience it was. I was very nervous at the beginning of the class, but thanks to Jerry's instruction, I felt very comfortable by the end. Thanks to Jerry for giving me confidence to move forward with shooting my hand gun. Great guy and great instructor!
