Classes offered by A & M Firearms Training emphasize the fact that we MUST take every precaution prior to ever having to use a firearm for self-defense.  Likewise, we must be mentally prepared if we ever face a situation requiring this use of force.  This is the foundational mindset from which our instruction in the use of handguns grows.  A & M Firearms Training maintains its focus on the use of handguns (revolvers/semi-automatic) for self defense purposes. 


A Little About A & M Firearms Training

Many people purchase a firearm for self protection yet rarely do those same people invest in themselves for learning how to properly use the firearm.   It is important that each individual take time, learn the appropriate steps in handling firearms and have a firm understanding of the laws related to the use of firearms.  

I have had the opportunity to work with both men and women in their desire for a greater understanding of their firearm and the preparedness for its use.  Effective mid-2020, I am focusing my training on work with members of TWAW (The Well Armed Woman) Shooting Chapters.  Occasionally, I will work with individuals as they step into the world of firearm ownership.
