We are your local Defense Firearms Training organization.

We teach the responsibility unique to Americans in our right to bear arms, protect ourselves and loved ones, and support a civil society. It’s not the occasional trip to the range; it’s a lifestyle!




As an American you have been promised the right to defend yourself. That right necessitates understanding your responsibilities regarding your self-defense actions and the law pertaining to use of deadly force: a life or death decision.


Will you panic under pressure? Or will you have the confidence to prevail when it matters? Our training develops the knowledge, physical skill set and experience to prevail if forced to defend yourself or loved ones in a critical incident.


One must understand the mental, physical, and emotional aspects of defensive firearm applications. A defensive use of a firearm is not the occasional fifty rounds fired at a shooting range. That is like comparing an orange to a zebra!

"Both Kathleen and I (especially Kathleen) genuinely appreciated your kindness, patience, and personal attention to her as she went through the challenging (for her) transition to a different weapon and ammunition at the range. We debriefed over dinner at Rudy’s, and Kathleen said she much preferred working with you today than our Ohio CC class instructors three years ago. They were excellent as well, but you really impressed her. She’s not easily impressed. I should know. The competition for her hand in marriage back in the day was pretty tough. 😂" December 14, 2021

"What better than an army ranger to teach you about gun safety. Mike knows exactly how dangerous a firearm can be and how important it is to be properly trained before handling one. I highly encourage joining one of Mikes LTC classes to train you or your loved ones on how to safely carry a firearm." Facebook Review, January 17, 2022.




A person who makes the decision to carry a firearm for personal defense purposes has stepped into a realm of the highest level of personal responsibility. We have accepted the possibility that we may be confronted with the use of deadly force. The average citizen has no sense of the brief moments that may suddenly arise in his or her otherwise quiet life. Our training provides you with the knowledge, ability, and confidence to prevail in those critical moments and beyond.

My mission is to teach responsible citizens to understand the potential threat, apply proper avoidance techniques where possible, but when forced to defend, prevail. The life of the responsible citizen who has chosen to carry a firearm for self-defense is not 60 minutes and 50 rounds of ammunition at the range once and while: It is a lifestyle that may save your life!

As I went through my various training on the way to instructor status, I realized this simple fact and it became abundantly clear. Those of us who choose to take responsibility for our safety are held to a higher standard under the law. The reality is that protection is normally minutes late and ends up merely cleaning up the mess and filing a report. If in our skilled response we prevail, a long, difficult and expensive emotional and legal battle may be our reality. Defense firearms training may save your Life, Liberty and Property.
