Even if you don’t take a lesson with me, I hope that I can offer some information that helps you.  To that end, I have cobbled together a few sets of links to various kinds of resources.

In as much as links change all too quickly out there on the web, I do not promise to check every link every day or two to make sure that they are still current, but I will try to check them with some regularity and frequency.  Certainly, if you notice a link that has gone sour, let me know via my Contact Information, and I will try to correct my link as quickly as life allows.

If you have information to share, such as a link to a great resource, please send it on to me.  If you are an instructor or other firearms– or personal defense-related business owner and you want me to add your link, contact me and we can talk about it—I generally want to know all about you and your business before I put your link out there.
