While I have been around firearms my whole life, I am not an expert trainer or anything like that. I grew up hunting, my father was a cop and I’m a Marine. I’m comfortable with firearms and carry a firearm. I would recommend you receive training if you plan on owning/ carrying a firearm. While I have no desire to get involved in all of the “which caliber is better”, “AR vs. AK” or “rifle vs. shotgun for home defense” arguments; I will from time to time post articles on the site that discuss these subjects for no other reason than to get you thinking about what is best for you.
I plan on reviewing different firearm trainers on the site, to help readers make informed decisions about which instructor or school best suits them and their needs.
