About this pro

You will learn proper techniques from a trained professional with experience in self-defense and firearms. I didn't learn from youtube like the fake self-defense pros. You will learn the true definition of self-defense.

It's a passion of mine. I want gun owners to be responsible. I want gun owners to have the ability to protect themselves and their families safely. I have carried and used firearms for 26 years in a professional and safe manner.

For non-firearm training students, I want them to be able to survive and overcome any attacks in the streets. I don't train students to be victims, I train students to be survivors and victors.

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

For live fire training (with live ammo) at a Gun Range, the student will cover all charges including ammo, and entrance fees. The training fee is $40 an hour for each student. A Firearm will be provided unless the student has their own.

For private dry fire in-home training (with no ammo), the training fee is $30 an hour for each student. A firearm will be provided unless the student has their own. A clear, safe, and quiet area is necessary for proper training. No kids or other adults should be around firearms training unless they are learning as students. No ammo chambering will be taught in-home training. Only loading of magazines will be taught in-home. At no time will any ammo be used to fully load a firearm in a home environment.


How did you get started teaching?

It's a passion of mine. I want gun owners to be responsible. I want gun owners to have the ability to protect themselves and their families safely. I have carried and used firearms for 26 years in a professional and safe manner.


What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with Corrections Officers, Military personnel, and citizens. It doesn't matter who the student is as long as they have a willing-to-learn attitude. I choose to work with nonexperienced students because I can teach them proper techniques. Some students with previous training require "unlearn and relearn" and that's not what I want to do unless the student is willing to relearn my way. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Retiring at 43 to pursue my own business endeavors.


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

I would advise the student to shut up, listen and pay attention. We have two ears because listening is twice as important as talking.


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

Are you willing to be a student?

Are you willing to shut up and learn?

What is your reason for taking lessons?

Do you have the time and money required to get the full benefits from the training?

What happens after the training?
