StarFire Tactical Armed Defense Classes

I teach people to defend themselves with a firearm from lethal attack. We focus on how to survive and prevail in an armed incident. We concentrate on how to get your gun on target rapidly and accurately at common civilian defense distances.   My goal is for you to leave each course with the increased knowledge, skills and attitude necessary to build your confidence and competence as you master new techniques.
Class is to Teach you what to Practice when you Train!

Coming Fall 2015
Red Dot Handgun / Rifle / Shotgun Clinic(s):  Red dots, reflex sights and other optical targeting aids are here to stay and will only get better and become more reliable and mainstream.  Red dots on rifles and on “race guns” during competitions have long been the standard.  But we are seeing more and more use on defensive handguns and shotguns.  This course will explore and teach the red dot shooter to better understand and utilize their red dot equipped firearm.
