About Us


Rick Basagoitia, Owner and Instructor

FATCAT believes that all Americans have a duty and obligation to exercise our freedoms responsibly. Regarding firearms, that is to carry and use them proficiently and appropriately. The benefits that I've realized using CSAT methodologies within my agency have led to forming this business to bring CSAT courses to Colorado.   There truly is nothing like it. See more in my resume below.


Combat Shooting and Tactics

I have been fortunate to receive great firearms training throughout my career. As I moved into the role of being an instructor, I sought outside training and found Paul Howe at Combat Shooting and Tactics. Paul is a true American Hero, a great person and a phenomenal instructor. I am honored to be able to teach his classes in Colorado. Please see more about my path to and history with CSAT below.



This is your opportunity to learn from curriculum that was developed by one of the top firearms and tactics instructors in the country. Shooters from all over the country travel to attend CSAT courses in Nacogdoches. This is the first chance to take these classes in Colorado. I teach throughout Colorado and am able and willing travel to surrounding states as well.
