Train How You Fight, Fight How You Train
To those who take owning or carrying a gun seriously, there is no substitute for professional training. Our courses cover a variety of topics from basic firearm safety, handling, defensive shooting and tactics to advanced tactical weapons training. Our instructors are dedicated to developing cutting edge defensive firearm skills and passing those skills on to our students.
All of our instructors are NRA / State or Military certified with well over 80 years of combined firearms training experience. Individual qualifications include a variety of disciplines from Law Enforcement, Military, Contractor / Operator, Security, Rifle, Carbine, Pistol, Shotgun, Personal Protection, Home Firearm Safety, Close Quarter Combat, Urban Survival etc. Most have first hand experience in the field whether it be military, contract, police or security / protection detail roles. Our instructors are CERTIFIED firearms and tactics educators.
Being a good operator, soldier, hunter, sports shooter or policeman does not mean that you are, by default, a firearms instructor. Being able to shoot and being able to teach shooting systems and techniques are not the same thing.
Because someone has military or police training / background does not make them an expert in firearms, tactics and especially teaching pistol skills. Their skill sets depend on WHAT the individual did whilst in the Military or Police and whether or not they were trained on how to TEACH those skill sets to others. If he was a firearms instructor whose job it was to TEACH the use of firearms…..that means he knows the relevent weapons (of that time) and was certified to TEACH others. That is a good start, at least.
In short: “Working for, or driving a Chevy does not make you Dale Earnhardt!”
Professional instructors are, by definition, qualified people that earn a living wage competently TEACHING the use of firearms and tactics to others.
If in doubt, get referrals from past students.
