Clint Smith is an expert on the use of Defensive Firearms. He is a Marine Corps Infantry vet, SWAT officer, and has been running Thunder Ranch since 1993.
I like his style, this thought process, and how he teaches. When I teach firearms classes, there are several techniques and lessons that I share that I gleaned from Mr. Smith.
I have searched YouTube for good training videos to share, and I have found several clips of Thunder Ranch training videos. Think of them as advertisements for their full length training videos. (I don’t gain anything from this, but I do think there videos are a valuable and worthwhile purchase.)
It Is a Lifestyle
Knowing the firearm safety rules is essential for the anyone involved with firearms. This can be a subject that is dry and unexciting because it is covered so often. I sometimes wish it stays dry and unexciting because that means there are no negligent discharges. However, Clint Smith can talk about firearm safety in a manner that is both informative and interesting.
It is my hope that at some point in the future my instructional ability grows to the point that Clint Smith has reached. I love his wit and the very descriptive way he illuminates a subject.
