  • James Brighton

    Great guy to work with! He was able to dial in on some deficiencies and get me past them. He’s very detail oriented but isn’t condescending at all. Check him out.

  • Bret Cardoza

    I had a baseline experience of shooting but Mr. Hampton taught me a bunch and got me to the next level.

  • Allison Tecella

    Madison was comfortable to work with around guns and his knowledge helped me to gain confidence in handling my guns.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I start with finding out where each of my students are at before instruction. This "skills assessment" lets me know where to begin. We then start to build I the student's skills and confidence. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been training in firearms safety and marksmanship as well as basic tactics for over 10 years. I have a number of cerifications that help me build the skills of the basic and advanced students alike. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I price my sessions based on the number of students and the time of the session requested by the students. 

How did you get started teaching?

I actually got started teaching soldiers at the range who struggled to pass their pistol and rifle qualificaions or wanted to improve their scores. It was there that I realized the military way of yelling till information sticks doesn't work for all students. I base my lessons on the skill of the student and patiently get them to overcome their hurdles. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with men and women of all ages and walks of life (18+). I have also worked on the range with members of the US Army, US Air Force, ex military of every branch, and law enforcement officers to build up the skills they already had. 

I have helped students who purchased their first gun and never shot before all the way up to the firearms enthusiast alike. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent event that I really enjoyed was a SMC (shoot move communicate) event that I participated in. I worked along side of several law enforcement officers and SWAT members to practice what I preach. It was awesome to get my hands dirty with some awesome guys and stretch my own abilities. 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I always tell my student's that they need to find an instructor who can do what they are asking their students to do (they must have skill) and who are able to convey information that the student can understand and maybe more importantly feel comfortable with. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Student's should have an understanding of "what am I looking to accomplish" and "how do I want to get there" before they look to someone else to answer those questions for them.
