Iron Sights Academy
I've been able to combine two of my greatest passions into a service that helps people become safe and efficient gun owners.
As an expert in human movement (national fitness professional) with over 40 years of firearms experience (recreational, military, law enforecement) I've created a coaching style that enables me to engage my clients on several learning levels.
Which means my students take away a faster learning experience with greater retention and application of the material.
I'm an ardent believer in the Second Ammendment and hold the strong belief that when people are trained they create a safer world for them and their families.
I am passionate about helping people achieve safety and proficiency in the rights and benefits that have as lawful citizens of this amazing country.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
After an initial conversation you and I will discuss the best possible path forward in helping you with your training. While most folks are able to meet their goals in a group setting some prefer private one-on-one sessions in class or at the range.
We'll put together a plan that works best for you!
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been around firearms for the better part of 40 years with my "formal training" coming from the U.S. Army, State Department, National Rifle Assocciation, and the U.S. Concealed Carry Association.
While I've moved-on from hunting these days I'm relentless at working towards speding most of my training these days in the recreational and personal defense space.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
One-on-one sessions starat at $80/hr with discounts available for buying packs of classes (3, 5, 10, etc).
Small group sessions are available if you would like to stay in the 4-6 person class rooom. This is a typical option for small businesses, family groups, etc that would like a more private coaching experience with friends, family, or employees. These rates by nature are slightly higher than "big group" classes. I'll work with you to create a structure that works with your goals.
Large group classes (10-12) are price structured depending on the course being taught, length of the class, and how much range time is included. Class fees can be anywhere from $90 - $165.
How did you get started teaching?
My coaching experience actually started out in the fitness world. I've spent the past ten years coaching teens and adults locally and nationally in the fitness space.
"Coaching" and why it applies to my firearms programs, demands a skill and proficiency with communicating content to people of all walks of life, all skill levels, and all learning levels.
I'm an expert in helping people understand course objectives in an environment that's fun, non-intimidating, and conducive to the objectives the course.
