Training Philosophy for  Rick Sindeband Certified Firearms Instructor

Training for my students is based on the best gun handling techniques and safety that the top Instructors use around the country for the classes they teach.  I am on top of changes in the law and legislation for our area and many others around the country.

People who I have trained become confident in their gun handling skills and their ability to make good decisions about concealed carry techniques and issues.

Most people learn with a combination of lecture, audiovisual, and hands-on. All of these techniques are important in self-protection training. Many of my students have never handled a firearm and are now faced with the real-world worries of how they will defend themselves and their loved ones if the time ever presents itself.

No one class will get your training level to where you need to be. These skills and qualifications are built like building blocks with the base being the most important part. A good strong base gives you a foundation for the rest of your training throughout your training cycle.
