Herfel’s instruction was great. I’m a beginner, and his guidance and tips allowed me to manage my anxiety in learning how to handle a pistol. I would highly recommend him to anyone else.

I’m 67, military brat, around guns for 20 years but after I lost a brother to gunfire I gave up until this year. I wanted a instructor that was world class - credentials current, expertise needed to be obvious. But I found there were actually a lot to choose from. So I went snooping :). Went to gun clubs and watched some instructors, talked to numerous gun owners at Top Gun, Volusia Gun Club. Only one name really stood out. Herfel Torres of VALORTEC. Today I completed my Conceal Carry training with Herfel. His understanding of the intricacies and applied physics and his ability to explain all this in a manner that instantly makes sense….so that when you actually fire you understand what’s happening. How your actions impact the momentary chaos that fallows a trigger pull. He changed my approach to shooting and practicing. I’m not doing firearms training as much for defense as I am the enjoyment of learning, practice, apply, repeat. I see Herfel as a new regular in my retired life - keeping me trained, sharp, and enjoying doing so! Of course, if the call ever does come to defend Herfel will have me ready. I’ll answer. Thank you VALORTEC and Herfel Torres.

Herfel's Rifle Self-Defense Class is a highly engaging and informative experience. Led by the knowledgeable Herfel, the course effectively blends theory with practical application, catering to all skill levels. The initial session focuses on rifle handling basics, emphasizing safety and responsible use, with Herfel's clear and passionate teaching style making complex concepts easily understandable. The practical shooting part allows participants to apply their learning, with Herfel offering individualized tips to improve technique and build confidence. Additionally, the course covers vital self-defense aspects, including situational awareness and legalities. Overall, it's a comprehensive, enjoyable, and safe learning environment suitable for both beginners and seasoned shooters.

Herfel was knowledgeable and funny in an offbeat way. He made learning and reviewing the information enjoyable. Wish we could have had more time doing shoot house drills and ammo down range. It was raining so we were lucky that Valortec had the facility where we could shoot out from their structure on the range. Overall a good experience and I bought a scope on Black Friday sales that Herfel had on one of his guns. Everybody should continue to train with their firearms and with qualified instructors. I would recommend taking this course.
