Florida Firearms Instructor    


The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun
is a good guy with a gun!

Welcome!  I am an NRA Certified Instructor and Training Counselor who truly enjoys shooting.  I also enjoy teaching others how to safely handle and use their firearms.

My mission & purpose:

bulletEducate those interested in firearms to the safe handling and use of them
bulletQualify individuals for their Concealed Carry Permit in Florida
bulletTrain future NRA Instructors

Some facts:

bulletA firearm in properly trained hands is your defense against others wishing to do you or your family harm
bulletFirearms in the hands of those who are not properly trained can have devastating results

You'll have to determine your knowledge and experience with firearms.  Are you new to firearms, have some previous experience or very knowledgeable?  That determines where you should start with your training.  Click here of the 'Your Knowledge Base' link at the top of this page to determine what class best fits your experience. 

Most importantly, if you have or going to have a firearm in your home please make sure it is safely stored and you learn how to use it proficiently.  Be safe!
