Comprehensive Firearm Training Courses


The Final Protective Line Academy provides the finest firearms training to help beginners become responsible and skilled gun owners. Whether you're a new or prospective gun owner or already have a passion for firearms, I am here to teach you firearm safety, shooting fundamentals, concealed carry and self-defense shooting tactics and techniques.

​As a retired US Army combat veteran, I have well over 20 years of tactical training and combat experience, and can provide you the most comprehensive gun safety and tactical training in Denver. My firearm training courses are aimed to make you a safe, responsible, caring gun owner and sportsman. My multi-level firearms, concealed carry, trauma & wound care, and home defense training courses are available for the general public. Whatever level of expertise you have, my courses are designed to suit your individual needs and achieve a high level of proficiency.

​I have decades experience training Soldiers to fight and I can train you too. Read my Google reviews and see what my other students have said about their experience. I provide performance-based training, using combat proven methods, to help develop and expand the shooting skills of virtually any level of firearms user, on any firearms platform.

As the primary instructor at the Final Protective Line Academy, I use my 20+ years of experience as a US Army Infantryman to teach regular everyday men & women basic combat tactics, marksmanship, and firearms training that will enable them to safely and effectively defend themselves and their families, whether in their own home or on the street. I use my experience and training as a US Army Sniper to training advanced marksmanship, as well as threat detection and avoidance. As a certified NRA instructor in the disciplines of pistol, home defense and concealed carry, you can feel confident that you have a professional, certified instructor who will get you comfortable and confident with your firearm.​

If you are a novice to firearms, a one-day training session with me will leave you feeling confident and excited about your future as a firearm owner. If you already own your own gun, bring it and I will teach you all about it. If you do not own a firearm yet, but just want a basic and broad introduction, I will provide the firearms and the ammunition for you. All you have to bring is enthusiasm to learn. I offer various training courses for rifles, shotguns, pistols, and precision accuracy rifles. Besides improving your skills, I will also teach you about the basics of gun safety, how to safely store a gun, and proper cleaning practices.

If you are ready to get started learning about firearms, or you are already experienced and just want to take your training to the next level, give me a call or email. If you are wondering what to do about a home intruder, or how to handle an attack on the street, I can help you. Whether you are wanting to obtain your concealed carry permit; want to learn how to sustain your child or spouse’s life until the ambulance arrives; or you are wanting to learn how to reach out and tag that 1000-yard target, the training is right here. Let me train you to defend your own Final Protective Line.
