     Key Concept: 'When owning a gun is criminal, only criminals will own guns'

     Key Concept: Guns are tools of last resort. What does 'last' mean?

'Jim, your
course on personal protection was absolutely beyond my wildest dreams of what I expected in that type of class. Your professionalism, knowledge and experience really create a perfect combination for a great experience. I can't imagine that there are many gun owners out there that would not benefit from your courses. Keep up the good work.

 If you are a law-abiding U.S. citizen, and are serious about learning to use a handgun for personal protection, you are on the right page! My name is Jim Trockman. I am an NRA Certified Handgun Instructor, NRA Certified Personal Protection Inside The Home Instructor, NRA Certified Refuse To Be A Victim Instructor, NRA Membership Recruiter, Certified Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor, International Defensive Pistol Association Member and Competitor.

"Why you choose to own or carry a handgun is your business - teaching you online how to use it accurately and responsibly is my business. Otherwise, it's nobody's business!"

Teaching adults practical defensive solutions requires specialized knowledge, skills and experience, and is my primary focus. 
If you are a first time buyer, have never shot before, or have a desire to overcome an irrational fear of firearms, spending a couple of hours on my website will open your eyes to important strategies to protect yourself and family from being badly hurt or killed by an impending and serious threat.


Enrolling in my courses will help you to understand how your level of training makes it possible for you to help in some ways; but impossible under many circumstances. Your behavior, when faced with a potentially lethal encounter, can affect the safety of others as well as yourself. My comprehensive overview of personal protection will demonstrate how to choose the best option to keep yourself and your family safe under a variety of potentially dangerous situations.
Anyone can memorize a list of safety rules: In my class, you will learn how to apply them...studying real-life scenarios will help you to visualize when you might need to depend on a firearm for the survival of yourself and/or your family. If you are ever forced to shoot an individual who has crossed your pre-determined boundary of personal safety, and lethal force is required, are you prepared for what comes next? Who do you call? What do you say? What shouldn't you say? When you draw your gun, and pull that trigger, your life will change forever... That said: would you be surprised to learn that the conventional wisdom regarding handgun safety and personal protection is almost always wrong? First example: upon hearing the proverbial sound of breaking glass in the middle of the night, what's the first thing you do? Call 911? Second example: everyone knows that if a person with a gun or knife is 21 feet away from you or less, they are a lethal threat, and its legal to shoot, right? Third example: that makes 21 feet the ideal distance to practice, right? WRONG, WRONG, AND WRONG! 

Learning how to properly stand, grip, aim, manage a trigger, handle recoil, breathe, and follow-through to the next shot, are just a few of the fundamentals you'll learn correctly in my outdoor range classes, when available. An example of critical info you should understand: knowing how to grip a handgun properly before making a purchase from a reputable dealer is essential...what is the value of choosing a gun that 'feels the best' in your hands, if you later find out it was being held incorrectly?


Please do NOT go shooting again before studying my courses. This is not a suggestion, its a requirement! Please leave your prior experience and pre-conceived notions at home. Having studied my courses online, you will have acquired the basic concepts of personal protection in a VERY important way: RIGHT - THE FIRST TIME!
