About this pro

ATX Firearms is here for all Austinites who are interested in firearms: the curious, the first time gun owner...all the way to intermediate shooters. 

I have 24 years of experience with handguns, modern sporting rifles and shotguns. I also was born with cerebral palsy and I have chronic pain, so I reach out to shooters with disabilities. 

My classes are the antithesis of the "boot camp" style gun training classes. I'm a low key person and my classes are designed to learn gun safety, Texas firearms laws and shoot guns, while having lots of fun. 

I love passing on my knowledge to others (while continuing to learn myself.) I believe that teaching people how to be responsible firearms owners makes this country safer.

    Mike is very knowledgeable about gun safety as well as the gun itself. He has lots of patience for the beginner gun user. Looking forward to my second round of training which will be at the shooting range !

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

Evaluate the students desire: is she considering purchasing a firearm, has he just bought a firearm and is he looking to carry it but learn to shoot it first 

Figure out the student's of comfort/skill level or experience with guns and any modifications which would make them better shooters 

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

I have 23 years of experience with firearms, I was fortunate enough to be able to audit a SWAT firearms class and I've attended two tactical training schools. I'm a USCCA accredited firearms instructor.
