WHY I DO WHAT I DO

  • I've been extremely fortunate to have been given superb professional training and now wish to share what has taken a lot of time, money and hundreds of thousands of rounds to learn.
  • I love teaching/training/coaching beginners through advanced shooters and particularly young girls and women in all forms of defense.
  • What I gain is knowing that I have immunized some good people against being a victim and losing the victim look.
  • I have shown many who are completely inexperienced with firearms and are timid that it is a safe and enjoyable pursuit, while still teaching defense effectiveness and safety and responsibility to themselves and others.
  • Shooting for most people a fun, intellectual, calming and sociable activity
  • When in danger, you do what you are trained to do!
