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.   A & M Firearms Training provides the student/client with a strong foundational understanding of everything from the terminology of the firearm to the safe and efficient use of a firearm.  Our classes emphasize safety above all other usage.  

We offer classes ranging from USCCA Instructor Certification to a primer on holster work and so much in between. A & M Firearms Training customizes classes for young people (teenagers and heading off to college students) in ways to protect themselves without a firearm as they move through this ever changing world.  The skills of shooting that we teach encompasses the fundamentals of shooting a handgun.  These skills include grip, trigger press, sight alignment, stance, and follow through.


As a former educator, I have embraced my years of experience in the classroom and shifted the content of instruction to that of self protection and a focus on handgun instruction.  It is my hope that you will take advantage of the classes offered and be prepared if  the need should ever present itself.  

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.  Classes are conducted in many configurations including classes just for men, women only, and/or for families or groups of friends. Additional classes can be created/added as requested.
