firearms training, NRA Instructor


My goal is two fold:

  1. Help people get their License To Carry to start with
  2. Help them learn how to competently use the pistol as intended.  
  • Don’t just hope you’ll be able  do what you need to do,
  • and don’t just “believe” you can do it because you need to do it,
  • have the confidence based on experienced competence.


Many people out there are confident that “having a gun” means they ARE PROTECTED,  but without practice (and competence resulting from that specific practice), that confidence is misplaced and their mistake is not realized until it is too late

(as an example, there are many people who carry a pistol daily but could not hit a 6 inch circle from 10 feet away consistently (and without any situational pressure).

A gun is a tool, like a knife, club, fist, or an elbow/knee.  These are all tools that are relatively worthless without the skill sets to use the tool effectively. Skill sets are only built and grown through “correct practice”.
