My Firearms and Self-Defense Training

In addition to being a competitive pistol and rifle shooter, over the years I’ve had the privilege to attend a wide variety of firearms and self-defense training courses given by some of the best government, law enforcement, and private instructors in the country. I’ve used this knowledge to help make my writing much more realistic than much of what’s written in the spy novel genre today. As a result, I think I can truly say that any “action scenes” in my books is extremely realistic and true to life.

Below are photos (click on any of them to see larger versions) from just a few of the training courses I’ve attended, and a list of these courses:

  • Fighting with a Handgun (multiple courses)
  • Advanced Handgun Techniques (multiple courses)
  • Extreme Close Quarters Gunfighting (multiple courses)
  • Hand To Hand Combat (multiple courses)
  • Ground Fighting
  • Knife Skills
  • Impact Weapons
  • Vehicle-Based Gunfighting
  • Shooting in Low Light (multiple)
  • Backup Gun Usage (multiple courses)
  • Emergency/Tactical Medicine (multiple courses)
  • Performance Under Fire (lecture course)
  • Dealing with Violent Criminal Actors (lecture course)
