Welcome

Purpose

Thank you for stopping by my page. Take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about me. I hope you enjoy the site. Feel free to reach out with any questions that you may have.


The purpose of my company is to provide to you a distillation of my experience and training over the past 20+ years as a law enforcement officer and firearms instructor in Colorado. The curriculum and instruction provides quality training while dispelling many myths and half-truths that exist within the firearms and training communities. Much of what is out there will not help you on your path to firearms and tactics proficiency to the level that you, your team or your agency need. It is my commitment to provide quality, relevant information and coaching to assist you in making your journey a bit less bumpy than it was for me. Always remember that  advanced shooting is nothing more than being able to perform the basics on demand...at anytime, every time.  

Target Audicences

 CSAT courses are ideal to achieve operator level firearms and tactical proficiency. Specifically,  civilians (novice and experienced); law enforcement - individual officers, units and agencies; including law enforcement firearms instructors will find the material and instruction among the best, if not the best in the industry. 

Combat Shooting and Tactics (MSG Paul R.Howe, US Army Ret.)

Paul Howe is the owner of most of the material that I teach. He teaches all of these courses, plus his advanced courses at his facility in Nacogdoches, TX. The CSAT courses that you take from me will set you up nicely if you have the opportunity to travel to Paul for his advanced courses.

Shooting well is the same regardless of the application. The CSAT courses that I offer lay the foundation for both law enforcement and civilian needs. The curriculum builds from there to practical application.
