“Charlie Parrish was extremely helpful and patient in helping me (a young woman who never held a gun) with all the basics I needed to safely handle a firearm. I went from barely being able to hold a gun without shaking, to loading and firing with confidence in just one session. Thank you very much, Mr. Parrish!” –L.C. Burbank, California
“I would not hesitate to hire Charlie again as an instructor for my troops. Each time my soldiers were trained by him they left better trained to defend themselves and/or take action if needed. Most importantly is after their training my soldiers left with a much higher degree of confidence in themselves, their abilities and in their skills….There is no doubt in my mind that his training has helped save American soldiers’ lives on the battlefield.”- SFC Bradley Amstutz, U.S. Army
A note from Charlie: The skills I have acquired throughout my life are practical, logical, and geared toward safely handling all types of weapons in all types of situations. I have been proud to be a soldier, bouncer, bodyguard, a stuntman and private contractor throughout the years. I have taught classes to soldiers, civilians, actors and athletes. Now I am thrilled to offer the breadth of my knowledge in this one of a kind class. Allow me to assist you in building your skills and confidence. I look forward to meeting you!
