HEAT Defensive Firearms Training focused on gun competency training and we provide a detailed, step by step introduction to firearms for the everyday civilian.
I enjoy teaching the basics to beginners and watching them immediately improve their skills.
Mike was recommended by a friend. I needed an instructor to teach me the basics. He took his time and got me on target very fast. I'm glad I booked him.
I assess your familiarity with firearms and start with the basics. We will always review safe gun handling fundamentals as a baseline. During the live-fire session, I will work to give 1:1 instruction to get your shot on target. I also introduce new elements of shooting to help you stay on target in different situations.

I became a teacher after being approached by a fellow instructor. He suggested that I became certified because of my shooting skills. I'm also a professional college instructor, so that exper always helped me create an objective based curriculum that benefits my students.
I have worked with students of all proficiency levels. Whether you've owned a gun for years or have never touched one, I can teach how to gain confidence with handling a firearm.
My first Handgun First Steps course was a great success. It was a small course and they became a close knit group that shoots together. It was a great experience.
Make sure that the teachings pass the test of practicality. Recreational and tactical shooting advice should always make sense.
Are they any reasons that I can't participate safely in a gun course?
