KNOWLEDGE -- SKILLS -- ATTITUDE
I am certified by the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) as a TRAINING COUNSELOR. Now YOU can become a certified USCCA Instructor by taking an Instructor Development Seminar from me. Please give me a call (765) if you are interested (425) in becoming an Instructor (1164).
I am certified by the USCCA as an Instructor, as well. This adds THREE NEW COURSES that you can take :: USCCA Basic Handgun, USCCA Concealed Carry, and USCCA Home Defense. There is a bit of overlap in the material covered, but not a lot -- sign up for ALL THREE !!!
The following states recognize USCCA certificates signed by me as proof of completion of the training required for that State's concealed carry permit requirements. This list includes: Florida, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Ohio, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
WHY TAKE COURSES FROM A CIVILIAN INSTRUCTOR ? (As opposed to an ex-Military or Law Enforcement Instructor…) The answer is that it depends on what you want to learn. If you want to join the Armed Services and become a member of SOCOM, then YES, you need to find a great Military trainer. Or if you want to become a Police Officer, then YES, you should look for a Law Enforcement trainer. But if your goal is to learn the laws and methods of civilian concealed carry, then you need a class taught by me. It is a completely different mindset. Military and LEO have a duty to hunt for bad guys. We have a duty to avoid conflict if possible and only use force as a last resort. The two paradigms are about 180* apart.
As you come to realize that you are your own first line of self defense (and not 911) you start look for effective means of accomplishing that. A firearm is one of the tools that can work for you. The safe and responsible use of that firearm is what is taught in the NRA Basic Pistol , and the USCCA Basic Handgun courses.
I have taught these courses to well over 1200 students, during some 150 individual classes. Each class is slightly different, depending upon the students comprising that class.
The USCCA Basic Handgun is the most popular course, and a great starting course. Also, I have several other courses you can chose from. These include Ballistics, Reloading, the NRA's Refuse to be a Victim course, the USCCA’s Countering the Mass Shooter Threat, and various private instruction options. Also, the 3 aforementioned USCCA classes / courses.
Whether you are looking for personal defense methods, self protection, or general firearm knowledge -- KSA Firearms Education will help you gain confidence and proficiency. You will gain knowledge, as well. As one example, during the Concealed Carry course, you will be able to try out several different holstering methods and styles to see what best works for you, BEFORE you go out and spend a dime on anything.
