  • My truest qualification is that I love defensive pistol training and skill development. I am a student first and I am always a student. I love to study and practice to increase my own skills and preparedness for self-defense, and I love to work with others interested in doing the same. It is my belief that there is no such thing as being too good at fighting for your life with a pistol. It is with that mindset that I guide my students with me on a few steps down the path.
