What Others Say About Michael


Heidi Beaumont - Best thing I have ever done. Training with Mike at Pinnacle to take charge of my own safety... world class training.



"Robert Powell, recommends Pinnacle Training Academy - Very knowledgeable instructor. Strait to the point and very down to earth. Professional in his craft. The time spent there was well worth the money. 5/5 would recommend. Do not hesitate to call and schedule a date to get your sc-cwp or any defensive class he offers. I know I’ll be making a second visit for a defensive class for me and my wife."


Sam Wyatt - Great day and great CWP class! Thank you Mike, I recommend the class for anyone thinking of purchasing a handgun. My wife and I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it.


Heath Cundey - Michael does a great job teaching the CWP class, his experience with firearms is tremendous, and is ability to coach even the inexperienced shooter is tremendous.
Highly recommend!

Angela L. Grigsby recommends Pinnacle Training Academy: "Just completed my Concealed Weapons Permit class yesterday with Michael. It was wonderful! Prior to the class I had only shot my handgun twice and I was nervous about how I would do. Michael was an amazing instructor and not only went through all the very pertinent information he also went through real life scenarios which helped really solidify the information. He helps you with your grip, body posture and stance of shooting to ensure you are shooting the best possible way. I plan on going back for the self defense course and defensive pistol course. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!!!"

Thank you for the time and dedication to instructing me at what I can attest to as very high level instruction. All of your courses are a must do for anyone who is looking to handle a firearm at any point in there lives. I highly recommend Mikes ability to instruct and understand the individual pupil as to his/her needs. I will continue training and look forward to my next session. Everyone should be doing this.

Mike, we want to thank you for the time you spent with us during the CWP class.  It was money well spent.

We were highly impressed with the knowledge that you and Mark shared in the classroom as well as at the range.  As a CWP holder in other states I appreciate the extensive training Pinnacle Training Academy provides.  As you know there exsits an educational classroom aspect along with a real world outlook to consider in assuming the responsibility of carrying a weapon.  Pinnacle Training Academy was extreemely comprehensive in blending the two areas with a healthy dose of safety.

Please share this with prospective students.  It is refreshing to meet someone who is dedicated and focused on delivering a quality service.


Many Thanks

I recently completed the SC CWP class and have to say it was one of the most informative courses I have ever taken.  Mike is a real professional dedicated to educating his students.   His extensive knowledge and real world experiences made the class exciting.  Safety on the range was paramount and the instructors pointed out the strengths and weaknesses of each student.   Suffice it to say I will be taking additional classes in the near future.  I highly recommend Pinnacle Training Academy for anyone interested in becoming comfortable in exercising their Second Amendment rights.
Thanks again.

Mike, I just wanted to thank you again for your great defensive pistol class! I really learned a lot and am much more comfortable handling handguns in a safe manner. I also feel more comfortable correcting misfires safely when they occur. I highly recommend you as an instructor and your classes! You are very knowledgeable and patient. I cannot wait to continue my training with you in the continuation courses.  Brandi
