I would like to reach out to my readers. 2013 is almost half over, and would like to know what training you have taken, or what you are planning on taking. Pistol? Rifle? Shotgun? All of the above?

What are your plans for training?

Stay safe…

I just had the honor of finishing up 15 days of instruction with both the ICON Celebrity and VIP Protection Course and the Advanced Executive Protection course. It was 15 days of long hours and hard work.  I could ONLY imagine what the students felt like!  Here are some pictures of what went down!

Until next time,

Elijah Shaw is a friend and mentor of mine in this industry.  He actually assigned me my first Executive Protection detail way back in the day.  I still turn to him for advice and continuing training.  He is the tip of the spear in the bodyguard game!  And those of us that know him; we know he is a HUGE movie fan… So I couldn’t help but borrow this from him:  (click the link to his blog)

If anyone has read my past postings or read any of my articles published in The Circuit magazine, you will see that I have a common theme (most of the time).  I’m a teacher,  it’s what I do!  A passion of mine is taking the information I have stored away in my brain and passing it along to whoever will take time out of their busy lives to listen to it.

SO with that being said, me being a trainer and lover of all things shooting related, I am very excited about the up coming training course I’m taking.  I will be venturing out to Front Sight in Nevada for a 4 day defensive handgun course.

This is an exciting deal!  Being able to go out and take a course like this, being trained by some of the best instructors in the country, I just can’t wait.  This is a 2 fold experience for me.  First as a teacher and trainer I am getting information I can take back to my students.  I look at it this way; do med students learn from text books from the 1800’s?  I’m not a med student but didn’t they used to use leaches to cure everything?  I could be wrong with that, but as a firearms instructor why not fill your training bag with as much information as you can!  It only makes you a more valuable instructor and helps you see things from the students eyes.  And on the other side of the coin, it helps me as a shooter become better.  I strive to push myself at every turn in this industry.  I am a competitive shooter and I like to take every edge I can.  Getting behind the gun as often as I can only makes me better all around.  Hence the reasons I am SO pumped to be flying out there this week.  (I’m also going to the SHOT Show, but that will be a different beast).

Keep an eye out for my training updates as the week moves on…

Until Next Time…

Stay Safe
