  1. Hi, Everyone! It's @Tiffany Johnson here from Citizens Safety Academy. Our last NRA Women on Target instructional shooting clinic sold out, and we had a blast! We've got another one coming up next month in Murfreesboro. Any female (teen to senior) who might be interested in learning a little more about handgun safety and operation is welcome to join us. Doesn't matter if you're new to guns, an experienced shooter, on the fence, or completely terrified -- all ladies who can be safe are welcome. NRA Women on Target Date: Saturday, February 23, 2019 Time: 8am to 1pm Location: Citizens Safety Academy, 752 E. Northfield Boulevard, Murfreesboro, TN 37130 (with live-fire done at the OK Corral) Cost: A modest, measly, mere $40 - and that includes a bag of souvenirs!

This is a CSA class designed to introduce women to several different carry options to better accommodate their body types, budgets, and everyday lives. With equal focus on equipment and technique, we hope to help women carry with comfort, consistency, competence, and confidence. Great way to roll in Mother's Day, right?

  2. Hey Everybody - We're rolling out a new co-ed class from Citizens Safety Academy called After the Permit (ATP). It's two levels, and we've got level 1 scheduled for early October in Murfreesboro. ATP-1 is a four-hour course that continues where the TN Handgun Permit class ends. This course was designed by @aqil Qadir as a stepping stone between the basic TN permit class for more advanced classes like NRA Defensive Pistol or other full-day or two-day classes with higher round-counts and holster work. Hope some of you will come out. Company: Citizens Safety Academy Instructors: @aqil Qadir and @Tiffany Johnson (and the CSA crew) When: Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018, 9am to 1pm Where: CSA HQ, 752 East Northfield Boulevard, Murfreesboro, TN 37130 (live-fire at the OK Corral in Woodbury) Cost: $55.00 More Info & Registration: https://citizenssafety.com/event/atp1-oct-2018/ (or you can register on Eventbrite) Contact Email: Aqil@CitizensSafety.com Let us know if you're interested. Thanks! - Aqil and Tiffany
  3. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/washington-secrets/conceal-carry-permits-surge-to-18-million-democrats-rush-to-get-too Some interesting numbers in this article. Sorry about the font. I'm not able to fix on my phone. A nation on edge has driven a surge in concealed carry gun licenses, but those getting them aren’t the usual suspects. According to the United States Concealed Carry Association, which trains and insures those legally allowed to pack heat, there are now some 18 million with permits, up from 11 million four years ago. Founder and President Tim Schmidt estimates that up to 40 percent of his 300,000 members are Democrats. What’s more, he said that of another three million who have sought information from his group, half are Democrat.
  4. Hey, everyone! Citizens Safety Academy (CSA) is offering two back-to-back pistol courses at the end of this month at a nice, comfy range in Ripley, TN. For those who would like to teach Tennessee permit classes, Mississippi enhanced permit classes, or NRA pistol classes, we're offering the NRA's two-day pistol instructor certification course. And if you haven't already had NRA Basic Pistol (now a prerequisite for instructor certification), we have that class the day before, so you can cover everything in one weekend.

We keep our classes small to ensure low student-teacher ratios and lots of one-on-one instruction. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to training with you. Aqil Qadir and Tiffany Johnson Info@CitizensSafety.com www.CitizensSafety.com
  5. On Sunday June 3 we will be offering a special 1 day training event in the Knoxville area. The class is an expanded version of the block of instruction that I presented last month at the 2018 Rangemaster Tactical Conference in Little Rock Arkansas. http://rangemaster.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Tac-Con-18-Brochure.pdf CLASS DESCRIPTION Point Blank Pistol Skills is a study in the deployment and effective use of the pistol in the 9 feet and closer distance envelope. This is the distance where time (and timing) are paramount. In this critical space there is little time to react and no time to be wasted with misses or ineffective marksmanship. At touching distance empty hand combative skills are often needed to help facilitate a clean unfouled draw stroke and decisive hits. We will focus on improving drawstroke, gaining better position, in fight weapons access, and making fight stopping hits from full extension all the way in to shooting in physical contact with the target. REQUIRED EQUIPMENT Students will need their pistol, holster, and a minimum of 2 spare magazines, or 3 speed loaders for their revolver if they plan to party like it is 1899. They will need 150-200 rounds of ammo, eye and ear protection. Also a "non live firing" replica (blue gun, red gun, Cert pistol, Sims gun or airsoft gun) that will fit in their holster. We will do some interactive dry work and will use those non firing replicas for that. A few loaners are available if you don't have a blue gun or an airsoft gun. This class focuses on shooting solutions 10 feet and closer but as opposed to most "shooting classes" this one has an interactive component so that each technique is also drilled against a live opponent so that there is no question as to the viability and applicability of the techniques and when and where to use each one. The use of Tac Man targets allows the ability to fire in very close proximity to the targets including allowing us to shoot in contact with them unlike paper targets which tend to blow apart. Also the 3 dimensional Tac Man targets provide a much more realistic looking target including it wearing clothing.
