The Origins of Safety Solutions Academy

In 2010, I began the process of creating Safety Solutions Academy to fill a need for quality, professional, Defensive Firearms Instruction. As the defensive firearms industry has continued to explode it has become even more evident that Safety Solutions Academy was an important tool needed to fill the instructional void that exists when it comes to the defensive use of firearms and information surrounding concealed carry.

Safety Solutions Academy works to helps its clients understand the realities of the defensive use of guns. We take a hard look at:

  • What you can do to avoid ever having to use a gun to defend yourself.
  • What guns are best for defensive use and what makes them better than all the rest.
  • How you can best prepare for a spontaneous scenario where you are forced to use your firearm for protection.
  • What other skills are important when it comes to your personal security.
  • Many other topics.
