I believe that it is the individuals’ responsibility to protect themselves and their loved ones. It is not the responsibility of their neighbor, the police, nor their elected officials. You and you alone have been blessed with the burden and responsibility to protect yourself and your family. Self-preservation is the most critical, yet basic, instinct for life.

You are the only person who will be at 100% of your critical life incidents, therefore that makes you the most capable person at that time to do something about it.

You will always be the first responder at your critical life incident. You must be prepared. You must have the Training, Intent, Tactics, and Skill to prevail at the time of your critical life incident.
Mission Statement
I will train, rather than just instruct, students to understand the gun, how it works, how to read the gun, so they can give the gun what it needs to operate, whether it be additional ammo, clear a malfunction, or press the trigger more smoothly. Like any craftsman, the operator needs to have an intimate knowledge of his tool, its functions, and its’ potential.
What to Expect
You will learn, train, and practice in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Although weapons training is inherently dangerous, respect of the firearm and consistently following the firearm safety rules will diminish any apprehension to train. Tactics will be demonstrated and explained.

I believe that people understand and learn faster when the answer to “Why?” is added into the equation. Students will be asked to challenge themselves and to put themselves in various scenarios through visualization. Prior to each course I will give you my expectations and goals and ask for your goals from the course. What do you want from the course you are attending? I will strive to improve your confidence, competence, and capabilities.
