Joe brings a multitude of skill sets as a law enforcement instructor dedicated to training warriors to win to law-abiding civilians, retired officers, and CCW holders.  Joe’s extensive law enforcement career brings the student to a keen sense of understanding the proven methods to handle the many different dynamic situations that may require the use of deadly force. 


Students will learn to present the holstered handgun in a safe and effective manner, and train with dynamic drills to develop and reinforce the solid gunmanship and mindset needed to address deadly threats effectively.



Our focus and emphasis will be on the fundamentals of marksmanship, gun handling and manipulations, speed and defensive accuracy, identifying threats and decision making to implement the best methods of engagement.


Class hours are 2pm to 8pm.  No two training sessions are alike.  Each class will bring new situations and techniques, along with continued sharpening of existing techniques and mindset.


Individual classes may be purchased and we also offer a Buy Six Special.


Introductory Sale Priced Class Fee:  $169 per class. (exp. 12/31/18)


Six Pack Package:  Six classes for $900 (Save $114!)  (exp. 12/31/18)


Students should possess a basic level of competency with their handgun.  This can be accomplished by completing NRA Certified Basic Pistol or equivalency.  Although we will guide you through the safe and correct methods for presentation of the holstered handgun, basic safe gun handling and knowledge are required.


Enrollment can be done at the front checkout counter, or by calling Denise at 408-687-3791.
