The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun
is a good guy with a gun!

Welcome!  I am an NRA Certified Instructor and truly enjoy shooting.  I also enjoy teaching others how to safely handle and use their firearms.

bulletA firearm in properly trained hands is your defense against others wishing to do you or your family harm. 
bulletFirearms in the hands of those who are not properly trained can have devastating results.

My mission and purpose is to educate those interested in firearms to the safe handling and use of them.  Through our classes you can:

bulletGet your Concealed Carry Permit in Florida
bulletTake a FIRST Steps Basic Pistol Training Class to better familiarize yourself with these firearms
bulletEnsure you know the proper way to safely handle, conceal and use your firearm

My qualifications: in addition to my military training (US Air Force) I'm qualified by the NRA for the following:

bulletBIT - Basic Instructor Training program
bulletRange Safety Officer
bulletRefuse To Be A Victim Personal Safety

My specialty is bringing my training class to you!  I noticed that there are many 'instructors' who truly don't train students in how to handle firearms with safety, accessibility & concealment as key components of their training.  I also didn't want to 'tie' myself down to a range that has restrictions on how I would properly train people safely.  Therefore, I developed a combination CWP & NRA Certified training class where I can train in just about any location.  We can do the classroom training at your locale and then go to a local range for qualifying.  All that's needed is a minimum of four (4) students and I'll gladly train at your location.  I've held classes in a hair salon, company office, automotive repair facility & restaurant.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding our classes.  Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries.
