Who we are begins with our beliefs. We believe that the responsibly armed citizen deserves practical training that focuses on those most probable, highly unlikely, self-defense situations. We focus our training on those skills, tactics, and knowledge that you will need, should the unlikely attack occur. We skip the fear-mongering and “tacti-cool”.
Practical Defense Training, LLC was born out of necessity. Too often in the firearms training industry, and specifically, the Concealed Carry Training Industry, life-saving skills are “drip-fed” to students. Courses are designed to sell the follow-up or “200” level courses. The reality of it is, not all students have the disposable income, or time (for that matter) to take 2 or 3 courses. In our New Mexico Concealed Carry Courses our students will receive practical, hands-on training that includes presenting the handgun from concealment and defensive handgun accuracy.
