Our Owner and Founder

In addition to being a Certified NRA Instructor and Chief Range Safety Officer......

John is also a Certified instructor for the USCCA in Concealed Carry & Home Defense along with the Woman’s Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced Programs.

John is also a Factory Trained and Certified Glock Armorer.

John’s Observation

What John found very disturbing is the fact that anyone could attend a class at some hotel or convention center. For a fee of $40-$90 someone would conduct a class, and would then rattle off information while 75-100 people sat in a room for the next two hours. You would then have a Live Fire exercise, and receive a Certificate to apply for your CWFL.

To make matters worse, these classes only taught you how to fill out the application, and spent very little time teaching you the required material to make you successful in understanding the Legal aspects of Concealed Carry. There are even On-Line classes lasting 43 minutes which teach you even less.

The Driving Force

This process is what motivated John and Mariann to become NRA and USCCA Certified Instructors. We can now educate and train individuals on the safe and proper storage, discharging, as well as maintenance of firearms both inside and outside the house. 

This knowledge is most important if you have any intentions of owning or carrying a firearm.

As Certified Range Safety Officers, we both also help our Local Ranges maintain a Safe environment for all to enjoy.
