I thought it was my gun...

I can’t recommend Jim, as an instructor, more. It’s easy to be intimidated by his career and accomplishments. But he does a wonderful job of communicating his vast knowledge in a way that doesn’t make you feel like a complete idiot. He is patient and really knows how to focus in on any weak points and has the tools to work through them. I was getting increasingly frustrated with my everyday carry gun. I fought and fought with being consistent and accurate with it on the range. I would go out, alone, and try and work it out, to no avail. After only a couple hours doing drills with Jim, I was shooting like I never had before. There were so many fine mechanics, that I had never knew about, that were dramatically affecting my shooting. Bad habits acquired over years and years of shooting. I was honestly considering trying other hand guns to see if that was the issues. Turns out it wasn’t the equipment, but the operator. This first lesson only scratched the surface. I cannot wait to get back on the range with him again and take more classes. This stuff could literally save your life.

Fantastic instructor, great class. Jim takes his years of training and real world experience and produces a class that is safe,
relaxed and personal. He can engage and carry the group while at the same time give very personalized instruction. I felt like I was taking a two day one-on-one class in a group setting.

The Real Deal

I’ve been shooting for over 40 years. I’ve been trained in some ridiculous, ineffective shooting trends going back to the mid 1980’s. I’ve also had the opportunity to shoot with some great instructors/operators as well. Jim is the real deal. His practical, effective training approach works well for beginners and experienced shooters. I’ve taken several classes with Jim ranging from bolt action and semi-auto Long Rage to Pistol and Carbine work. With Jim making wind calls in 15-20 mph winds I was able to successfully hit 100% (6 of 6) out to 1000 yards. This was not on a sanitized flat range. This was real world, mid to high angle shooting. His fundamental and easy going approach puts shooters at ease well before any guns come out of the holsters. For the more advanced shooters, his field experience and knowledge are apparent as he shows more efficient and faster cleaner ways of target acquisition and engagement, Concealed carry, duty carry, recreational or hunting, do yourself a favor and try a class with Jim.
My advice to anyone wondering if it’s worth it; Is it NOT worth knowing how to effectively protect yourself and your family?

Phenomenal instructor. Very direct in his teaching and logical. Common sense method in his approach. Able and willing to pay more attention to students who are having difficulties to make sure they learn and perform the task(s) properly.
Be prepared for jokes and to laugh. Very approachable and open to all questions and tactics. NOT a “my way or the highway “ instructor
