Louisiana Shooting Association Annual Meeting – 2019

We had our 2019 Louisiana Shooting Association Annual Meeting today. After serving 1 year as an alternate board member, and the 2 most recent years as a full board member, I was up for re-election. I have been re-elected for another 2-year term. Most of my involvement with the LSA is representing Louisiana gun owners during our state legislative session. I will continue to be active by providing testimony during the house and senate committees to protest or support bills. Erin Luper, our NRA-ILA state representative was present to provide a recap of 2018 and to talk about what [...]

Unarmed Response to an Active Shooter Event

School is back in session, but just before it started back, I spent a few days with the entire staff and faculty of a school in the area. My goal for the course was to prepare them to make better decisions and to leave them with a proactive plan they could use in the event of a worse-case situation of an active killer event. Often times, I find people trying to create a plan that only works under certain situations...thinking that it would happen they way they imagine it. The fact is, we don't get this much control.

Summer Training Instructor Development Courses

The 2018 summer has come to an end and it has been quite the ride. We finished out the summer in the Birmingham, AL area teaching a defensive handgun course but most of the summer was about instructor development courses teaching students from around the country. From the west coast to the east coast, students came to the hot Las Vegas desert for an I.C.E. Training Defensive Firearms Coach course and put in some hard work over the very long three days. After finishing here, we took the training back on the road for another DFC course in [...]

Personal Defense Network Training Talk – Kids and Guns

As a firearms instructor, I enjoy getting our youth involved in shooting and teaching them about firearm safety. As a father of two young boys, I'm very deliberate in how I raise them around guns and keep them responsibly in our home. Here are some of my thoughts in a previously recorded live video with Grant Cunningham and the Personal Defense Network. What are your thoughts on the topic?

Guest speaker at the USCCA Concealed Carry Expo

I was happy to be invited to speak at the United States Concealed Carry Association's annual event, which took place in Louisville, KY this year. I spoke on Armed Home Defense and put a focus on a plan being much more than having a gun! If our ultimate goal is to keep ourselves and loved ones safe during a break-in, then we have to make sure our choices are not only helping us reach that goal but are also keeping the risk level as low as we can. Are you a member of the USCCA? [...]

MUST KNOW for Concealed Carry in Louisiana Churches

https://youtu.be/sLyLXNgoBXQ With an increase in violence in churches, I'm getting more and more inquiries about church security teams and concealed carry in churches. Please note that this video is only discussing the requirements under our permit law, but a security plan is so much more than letting someone carry a gun. Please reach out to us for help or training. Our statute in LA that covers the concealed handgun permit is: LA R.S. 40:1379.3 http://www.legis.state.la.us/Legis/La... Subsection U covers the church's authority to allow certain people to carry concealed. U.(1) The entity which owns the business or has authority [...]
