Category: Self Defense, Security, & Shooting

The Self Defense category started this site.  I began this journey to advertise my handgun permit classes.  Over time the site and my mission grew to include all manner of protection not just guns.

I still teach firearms. Furthermore, I still believe having the will and skill to defend yourself is essential.  However, it is only a part of the total package.

Please Note that Self Defense is not just shooting.  This category has information on other weapons, security, and crime prevention also.

That being said, this category is still one of the largest on this site and it is second only to the DIY and Food and Water sections.
