About Florida Firearms Instructor    



Thank you for visiting our web site.  I cannot stress enough the importance of people who want to use or carry a firearm to get the proper training.  Use of a firearm is a life changing experience...please get trained properly.

You'll notice that my class is a bit longer than most.  That's because I want to ensure that you get the proper training and that you show proficiency with a firearm.  It will require a commitment on your part to continue training.

My qualifications: in addition to my military training (US Air Force) I'm qualified by the NRA for the following:

bulletTraining Counselor - training future NRA Instructors
bulletBIT - Basic Instructor Training program
bulletCertified Instructor
bulletCertified Pistol
bulletCertified Rifle
bulletCertified Shotgun
bulletRange Safety Officer
bulletChief Range Safety Officer
bulletRefuse To Be A Victim Personal Safety™ Seminar
bulletCertified Refuse To Be A Victim Regional Counselor

My specialty is bringing my training class to you!  I noticed that there are many 'instructors' who truly don't train students in how to handle firearms with safety, accessibility & concealment as key components of their training.  I've developed a combination CWP & NRA Basic Pistol training where I can hold my course in just about any location.  We can do the classroom training at your locale and then go to a local range for qualifying.  All that's needed is a minimum of four (4) students and I'll gladly train at your location.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding our classes.  Please feel free to contact me with any inquiries.
