Skill Builder is the forge where Warrior Scholars are created. Your goal is to be a proficient, confident gun handler, a thinker and a fighter. You are the defender of that which is good, just, and pure. Your desire for love and peace leads you to see the necessity of violence should the time come. This program is for you if you are willing to put in the time and dedication, attention to detail, and consistent repetition to develop mastery.

The Skill Builder series is not a class, it is a training philosophy and teaching format which is designed to provide shooters of a wide range of skill levels with an affordable opportunity for regularly scheduled, local, and ongoing education. Skill Builder is built for self-starters who are eager to learn, who have already begun the process of accumulating the skills and equipment necessary to protect self, family, and community, and are looking to add the missing piece of hands-on training.

This program offers, no-bullshit, safety conscious, time efficient live fire training to supplement your personal journey in the modern martial art. Every month we focus on both reviewing the essentials, and adding to your repertoire by training on something new. Those who come every month to train find not only new knowledge and skills, but also camaraderie with good upstanding citizens, and a community of friends devoted to a common path.

All Skill Builder classes follow the same basic formula: Check in and set up, safety brief, group stretch, dry practice, static live fire, dynamic live fire, class photo, debrief, and clean up. We always review safety in the morning, and break down the day into bite sized focused instruction blocks. We shoot live fire drills in a logical progression, starting from the most basic and building in complexity, speed and technical challenge.

As a student of the Skill Builder series, you will push yourself to mental exhaustion, run your equipment to the point of failure, develop confidence in your gun-handling abilities and metal toughness, grow in discipline and moral character, and become faster, stronger, more alert, and more accurate than you previously thought possible.

This class focuses on perfect repetition of perfect carbine technique.

Is there an age limit?

Parental discretion and supervision required. Minors high school age and up welcome. This is not a class well suited to younger children.

I don’t have a holster, is that okay? If you want to use a pistol, you need to bring one or contact me in advance to borrow one.

Should I use an inside the waistband or outside the waistband holster? The choice is yours but I recommend you use “street” gear.

Can I use appendix carry? Yes.

Should I wear body armor? If you have it at home, its not very useful is it? Train wearing what you will fight in. Body armor or bathrobe, the choice is yours.

What calibers do you allow? Anything goes.

Can I wear/shoot a backup gun for the drills? Yes. You are welcome to use a second gun.

My friend wants to attend, but he/she has never shot before. Can he/she come? This is not a suitable event for a first time shooter.

Wolf, Tula, and other steel cased ammunition is acceptable.

Can I pick up brass to reload? Yes, you are welcome to collect brass in this class to reload.

Notes on equipment:

Bring what you have, don’t stress about “having XYZ piece of kit”. You’ll be fine. Bring what you have. If it doesn’t work, I’ll loan you a set. If you don’t have gear, talk to me ahead of time and I’ll bring you a spare gun and gear. No extra charge. You are responsible for understanding the law regarding transport, carry and ownership of firearms, but so long as you are safe on my range, use whatever you wish.
