Training Schedule + Q/A
« on: March 13, 2019, 10:30:39 AM »

Had a few people message me about classes and what I instruct.

The NRA assigns a number to everything and thus, everyone else does: Rifle 1/2/3/4 - Pistol 1/2/3/4

I think that's rather stupid - You may be at level 2 while your buddy is level 3. Thus, I adapt the class for everyone. I've been to way too many classes where the instructor just sticks to his regiment and doesn't adapt it to the class - It's a letdown. Sure you have fun in the class but, you leave feeling that it wasn't worth the $$$$. I want you to leave feeling completely satisfied and hungry for more.

Everything listed I've pushed out to an instructor level.

Unlike some places, you're not going to blow through 300-400 rounds. We're going to dry-fire A LOT until you're familiar with the concept and then we'll push forward with live ammo. You might shoot 100-150 but, I guarantee you, you'll be more comfortable and confident with whatever is going on.


I have ammo available at cost. - Don't have enough? Don't worry, I've got 9mm/45acp/5.56/300blk in bulk.


The first class is typically always a skill assessment so that I can get a feel for where you are and then we can go from there.

Depending on the class, I like to go over some literature, a self assessment of your skill level and then we talk about goals.

I really don't want to offer a 2/3/4 until I've assessed the shooter.

If you've seen a youtube video and want to discuss a technique - Some techniques are generally bad but, offer good practical skills/teaching points; some are great - We can go over what works and what doesn't. John Wick for example makes a few choices that are impractical for even himself but, they still offer a solid teachable moment.


There isn't one until it fills - Lots of inquiries. We can always figure something out.


I have a 50yd rifle range. A tactical IDPA plate course. A speed course and a defensive course.

Class size:

I'll be honest, 2 or more people is always better because I can instruct off of each student in regards to technique, mistakes and skill building.


I've been instructing Mil/Leo Rifle classes for over 10 years. Tactical rifle/carbine/Extreme long range. I've worked as a contractor and with contractors - Because of this I've been allowed to attend Mil schools. I've been an NRA instructor for 3/4 years now. An armorer for 8 years.

I've taken classes with all of the big names, some I liked...Some I didn't. I've been a guest instructor for a few companies out west, wasn't a fan.

My goal at the end of the day is to make you more comfortable, confident and secure when handling your weapon.
