A firearm is the best defense - with proper training.

A firearm is the best available tool for self defense against criminal or animal attack. Like any other tool, one can learn certain skills that will increase its effectiveness against even a determined foe.

Our objective is to promote firearm trainers and to encourage gun owners to make use of their services. We believe this is the most effective means of ensuring that America's gun owners are safe, proficient, confident and responsible as they exercise their right to keep and bear arms.
