Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ

How long have you been teaching?

I started teaching firearms back in 1993 and started Pistol & Rifle Training in 2016.

Where do you teach?

I use the range facilities at Ben Avery Shooting Facility (BASF).

I will come to you and provide training for you or your group within reasonable travel distances and restrictions.

I usually use Practical Pistol Ranges B, E & F for classes.

Do you do custom training?

Yes, I will customize training to fit the needs of the student or the groups goals.

Do you supply or rent guns?

Not usually. I will on prior arrangement allow students to use one of my firearms for the range activities or to test fire a specific gun. They are expected to provide appropriate ammunition. I don’t charge fees for the use but it is by prior arrangement ONLY.

What calibers do you normally work in?

I use safe, plastic training ammunition for students during handling and initial shooting exercises. 

I have the following calibers available:

  • .22LR
  • .380 ACP
  • 9MM
  • .38 Special
  • .45 ACP
  • .223/5.56 

Students can purchase their own simulated training ammo and bring to class.

I recommend:

  • A-Zoom
  • ST Action Pro
  • Magpul
  • Tipton
  • Saf-T-Trainers (I use these.)
