Jim can break it down and teach you how not only to defend yourself but protect your loved ones as well. Top tier, elite, highly trained professional, who is one of the most real, and humble individuals I have ever met. Any one of Jim’s classes has the potential to change your mindset. To say I recommend him is an understatement. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

I live in Washoe county and had many instructors to choose from for my CCW class, but I saw Jim Erwin’s website and decided to go with him. I couldn’t have been happier. Jim is a very good instructor, he’s funny, and he obviously knows as much as anyone. I’m looking forward to taking some private classes with him soon. I can’t imagine there being a more knowledgeable teacher in the area.

From the start at 8am, I knew this was going to be a great class. Enjoyed myself so much that when I looked at my watch it had already been 4 hours in. Jim”s classroom instruction was thorough, and precise, just like his marksmanship. His ability to teach the fundamentals and more has me scheduling additional training with him. Because of this initial class I have the confidence needed to protect myself and my family at a moments notice. I am looking forward to my family going through his course and my additional training to further build my skills . Thank you Jim! See you soon!
