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. Details are listed below, including links to register. 

NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting

  • When & Where: Friday, June 29 (Ripley, TN)
  • Name of Training Organization: Citizens Safety Academy
  • Name of Instructors: Tiffany Johnson and Aqil Qadir
  • Cost of Training: $85.00
  • Course Info: No prerequisites; No experience necessary. This course covers the universal safety rules, the fundamentals of marksmanship, and pistol operation, selection, storage, and maintenance. Great for brand new shooters, veteran shooters looking for a refresher or training documentation, and everyone in between. Participants will need a reliable handgun, eye and ear protection, approximately 100 rounds of ammunition, an open mind, and a positive attitude. Please let us know in advance if you think you'll need to borrow a handgun.

Who are Aqil and Tiffany? We are both certified instructors, NRA training counselors, and longtime members of the Rangemaster training community, with years of mentorship from Tom Givens and his contemporaries. We invite you to check out our bios and credentials on the CSA website, or you can reach either one of us right here on TGO. We know there are lots of NRA classes available, but we really have worked hard to refine this content and present it in the most effective way possible. 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.

TGO folks;

I just wanted to offer a vote of confidence for Aqil and Tiffany, particularly as they are a new vendor here on TGO.   I recently had the good fortune to attend a civilian medical class at their office in Murfreesboro, taught by Dr. Sherman House.  While Sherman did a fantastic job teaching us about hemorrhage arrest techniques (aka "Stop the Bleeding"), Tiffany, Aqil and the others at Citizens Safety were absolutely top notch contributors and participants, and extremely welcoming hosts.

I have had the extreme pleasure of speaking with Tiffany several times lately on a variety of subjects and can tell you that you're not very likely to find a more engaging and sharp-minded person of her talents and background without a very difficult search.  She is passionate about bringing more people into the 2A community and equipping them to defend themselves and those that they love.

I hope you'll both welcome Citizens Safety to TGO and give serious consideration to training with them.  Their Basics course would be ideal for anyone that you know who is looking to become proficient, or even for YOURSELF to reaffirm the basics and get a good gut-check on what you think you already know. :)

I took the Rangemaster instructor certification course last year, and Aqil was one of the assistant instructors.  He's a squared away guy who knows what he is doing.  

Cheers,

      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.

      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!

      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.
