Thank you in advance for considering allowing me to help you with this potentially life saving training. I grew up in a hunting family with very close ties to Federal Cartridge Corp so firearms and ammo were always around. I learned firearm safety early and have always enjoyed shooting sports. My passion for firearms instruction came out of noticing how many people were purchasing them for personal or home protection and then finding out how little they knew about safety, proper handling, and especially the legal responsibilities of firearms use for self-defense.

Now I am not one that promotes fear of any kind or on any level. Fear causes people to act irrationally and that is always dangerous. Wisdom and preparation however are always beneficial. It’s too late to buy water and flashlight batteries an hour before the storm hits.  I began this journey myself some years ago not out of fear of some immanent threat but because I knew it would take time to learn what I needed to be ready.
