Welcome

Thank you for stopping by my page. There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about me. I hope you enjoy the site and take a moment to drop me a line. 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. I see my primary service to all shooters (novice, expert, civilian, LE, military and anyone in between) as being to provide 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 professional level fireams and tactics proficiency. 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.

More classes to come

Tactical proficiency is a journey and can't be learned, and more importantly, ingrained in the subconscious all in one shot. It may take more than one class to get you to your individual goal. As I build a customer base, I'll be offering more advanced classes in the near future. Operator courses are the place to start regardless of your current proficiency level. Everything we teach is stair-stepped and builds upon itself.
