“Trained in the use of firearms” is fantasy.
You're either training or, without exception, you're incompetent to some significant degree.

Join me for training anytime.

I invite you to be my guest (the first time) at the range and throw in with my weekly training any Saturday morning at 8am at Proactive Defense in Northlake, Texas. Whether you're a gun pro, an intermediate-level shooter, or a total newb, we'll work defensive drills at a level you can handle. We're not gonna just "shoot," we're going to train on drills that develop skills we can use to preserve our lives.


Easy Peasy: I'll take care of your range fee.

Just let me know you're coming ahead of time.

Bring your own ammo.

Bring your own gun(s): pistol, rifle...all good.


Bring all the guns you want, but we're only going to train with one. Training requires focus.

One More Thing:

We train whether it's 15°F or 110°F, rain, or shine. If you're daunted by something as insignificant as weather, don't bother touching base. Training is about skills, not feels.
