Step 2 Complete the online course. You will be emailed your certificate of completion once you have finished the online course successfully.  (Please note that the instructor’s name on the online course material is listed as Zach Haag. This is the correct course.)

Step 3 After successful completion of the online course, you will have the option to check my calendar for upcoming live fire events Or you may simply contact me to schedule your live fire event. Feel free to ask about special arrangements to fit your busy schedule and lifestyle.

Step #4 Payment of $100 by Venmo, cash or check is due at the time of your live fire. There may be a small range fee as dictated by each range.  

Please bring your own firearm, ammunition, eye and ear protection. In the case that you do not have a firearm yet I will make one of mine available for use during your live fire. A $10 bill will cover the high cost of today’s ammunition when it’s available.

The following videos, while not being required for this course, are recommended for you to watch. These videos are produced by top industry experts. Rather than attempting to recreate the information, I choose to let the experts speak for themselves.

Five steps new gun owners should learn.

I would like to congratulate you for making the decision to look at the status of your personal safety as it is today. Investigating all the options available for one’s personal safety may appear to be a daunting task. However, it does not need to be overwhelming. Take it one step at a time. You have already made your decision, which is something you should be proud of. Far too many individuals give zero thought as to their personal safety.

You are about to embark on a lifelong and life altering journey. This journey is not right for many. The decision to carry a lethal self-defense tool is not to be taken lightly. Should you decide to accept and embrace this lifestyle, you will immediately begin to understand what I mean by life altering. If you do not, we should have a conversation.

As a Certified Instructor it is important that I tell you one thing. Carrying a lethal self-defense weapon is not for everyone.
