If you want a pleasant introductory diving experience do not use Diver’s Reef. Twice my wife and I showed up after scheduling a class a week in advance, once over the phone and once in-person, and this company can’t keep its schedule straight. Would you trust them? Diver’s Reef in Colorado Spring is the most unprofessional business I have interacted with. My wife and I have never been on a diving excursion. We had contacted Diver’s Reef to attend an introductory dive class. We had scheduled a week in advance on a Saturday morning and found a babysitter for our two year old. When we arrived the attendant noted that we had not been placed on the schedule and there were no instructors available. The attendant did attempt to call instructor’s short notice, once it was noted that we had a babysitter. He then apologized and told us that he would personally give us an intro lesson when we scheduled. I few hours later, I called to schedule the following Friday (today) at 9am. I understood the normal operating hours were from 10-6, but we had taken our son to pre-school and pick him up by 12 and I had taken the day off work. The attendant understood the time constraints with pre-school and noted that he would come in at 9am for the lessons and stated that he was putting us on the schedule. My wife and I arrived at Diver’s Reef at 8:50am and waited until 9:20 am again, this company was a no show

I am a 34 year old married, father of a 5yr old and 4yr old (boy & girl) who is very concerned about their safety as well as my wife - simply for the fact we live in an unpredictable world. I'm also out of shape with poor conditioning after years of sedentary office/computer work. Martial Arts has always been intriguing to me but I've never been exposed to it and, at 34, was a bit hesitant to subject myself to something more physically demanding than I could handle. I have been pleasantly surprised by Master Isaac Costley ("Master C") and Instructor Heather Anderson who have both shown patience and interest in the development of my children as well as my wife and me. The Little Dragons class for the children teaches core values such as responsibility, integrity, discipline, attentiveness (just to name a few) coupled with safety, awareness, and self-defense. While true teaching of these values should come from the home, The Little Dragons curriculum reinforces this with reality-based lessons that are exciting and fun for the children. My children look forward to each class! My wife and I couldn't be happier attending our classes MWF - we are getting back into shape while learning how to defend ourselves. I've enjoyed a new sense of purpose as I work toward goals and achievements that tend not to exist otherwise in the adult working world. I would recommend Calvary Family Martial Arts & Fitness to anyone looking to improve their health, develop skills they never knew they had, once again enjoy working toward goals, and to begin walking confidently in the real world. Thank you Master C and Instructor Heather!

Everyone at work kept urging me to go with them during lunch time. I finally decided to go, with thoughts of being there for 15-30 mins. I was like a child in a "candy store" there were so many guns, I ended up being there for an hour and still didn't view even half the guns. The employees were enthusiastic to assist me and very knowledgeable. I've bought several things from them since my first visit, including hard to find ammo and things I've seen on the internet and called to find they had it in stock. Most times when I go during lunch time and after work, they aren't as busy. I was very impressed when I went on a crowded weekend, the employees still smiled with a hello to me, and several said they would assist me after they were done with their customer. A guy came over and started to assist me in looking at several guns, I later found out it may have been Jeff, the owner. I told him right from the start I was interested in checking them out, but I wasn't planning on buying one that day. It didn't seem to matter to him, he took the time to explain in great detail the pros and cons and what to look for. It then got really busy at the front counter, so he had to leave and assured me someone else would be there quickly to finish assisting me. Within a few minutes another employee came to assist me and was most helpful. By the time I left there, I was so tempted to buy a gun that day, okay, who am I kidding, I wanted to buy 3-4 guns. The service was great and every time I've been there, whether I bought anything or not, or even the smallest of things, they were all very nice and helpful. I'm sure when it gets crowded and frenzied, people may not get the individualized treatment they expect and demand, but I can see how dealing with people from all walks of life can start to "wear" on the employees. People need to remember, this isn't a store where you can just grab a gun and look at it. Employees have to assist you, and that takes time. The ratio of shoppers compared to the employees may get to be a bit much at time, so people need to understand this aspect while shopping.

I was trying to pay for my small purchase item at the front counter. My friend was at the counter buying a gun and I was behind him. When the cashier was done with him, she walked away. So I went to the 3 cash register and stood behind a couple. When the staff member was done with them, I stepped up to the counter and placed my item down, he looked directly at me, turned and walked away. So I went to the middle register and the cashier who walked away from me at the third register took over the 1st register. I went back over to him and while he rang up my purchase I asked him why he did not ring my items in on the other register where I waited in line and he said "that register doesn't work." So I asked "why didn't you just tell me to come over to this register" and he said "I didn't know why you were standing there."

Majority of the staff there are a bunch of bleeps. Spent over 20 years as a weapons specialist in Special Forces and some wet behind the ears bleep tries to lecture me on how to return a slide on a pistol. Had similar experiences when looking for rifles and holsters. Gave up going there a while ago. Don't waste your time. Plenty of other places to shop in Colorado or online.
