Personal Defense Credo
I believe that every person physically and mentally capable of carrying and using a defensive weapon has a responsibility to do so.
This responsibility is to themselves.It is the responsibility to defend their own life, the lives of loved ones and, by extension, of those unable to defend themselves.

Making this world safer one armed indvidual at a time
Most “Basic Pistol” classes are taught in groups of 8 or 10 or even 20. I often assist other instructors with these classes since multiple instructors are necessary. However, I believe that a one-on-one session will provide better instruction making you a more effective & responsible armed citizen.
The larger class is often less expensive, but the trade-off in instruction value is a big one.
