Owning a fIrearm does not make you  a shooter,  just like owning a piano does not make you a Musician.
 Col. Jeff Cooper

The courses listed on this page are not for beginners. They are designed to improve the skills of individuals who have a firm understanding of the basics of shooting and desire to add to their skill set.

I am now a staff instructor with Saurez International. SI is the largest civilian training company in the USA. SI has more classes in more locations than any other training group. I will be adding more SI  classes in the near future. Current offerings are Defensive Pistol Skills, Close Range Gunfighting, AK and AR Rifle Gunfighting, and Guerilla Sniper, CQB Fighting in Structures, Vehicle Gunfighting,
More to come

Low Light Tactics
Statistics tell us that 70% of confrontations take place in reduced light environments. These include outdoor and indoor environments. The fourth rule of shooting tells us to know our target. It is hard to know it if you can't see it and turning on all the lights in the environment is not always a viable option.
The Low Light Course is designed to give the student the knowledge and skills to survive in the environment the thugs prefer. Since you can't  use a gun mounted light in all circumstances this course shows the use of a hand held light that is seperate from the firearm.
This is a great class that is lots of fun and you will learn more about using a flash light in self delf-defense than you thought possible.We also teach the "theory of light issue" so you will understand what you are doing, not just how to do it.
This is a class for experienced shooter

Concealed Carry Course
The State of Georgia does not require a class before issuing a Georgia Firearms Liscense. There is alot more to carrying a concealed handgun than buying a gun and holster. This class is the NRA Personal Protection Outside the Home.
There are other classes that teach concealed carry but none of them include the 300+ page book and a 1 hour session with a lawyer, This is a two day class; one  day is spent on the outdoor range developing defensive shooting skills. The other day is in the classroon and covers defensive mindset, conflict avoidance and the legal session.
