Many people think that fast, accurate, and effective shooters have some sort of secret sauce that magically provides them with their phenomenal firearm skills. Well, news flash - There is no secret sauce and no new and improved method to ensure that your rounds will be effective and fast.

Whether they are speed or competition shooters, law enforcement, military, or simply awesome average Joes or Janes, effective shooters have one thing in common – They have mastered the foundations of shooting and are able to apply them consistently, effectively, and quickly.

Ask yourself - Are you prepared to use your firearm properly and effectively in a defensive situation?? If you're not sure, how can you find out BEFORE your skills are called into question?? You can begin by attending this Introduction To Defensive Shooting Fundamentals training!!

This particular DSF training will focus on helping you prepare for our Buckeye Blast Fun Shoot event coming up Sunday, March 24th. Buckeye Blast attendees will enjoy a full day of shooting at Tactical Defense Institute, one of America's premier firearm training facilities, along with their friends from Buckeye Firearms Foundation and fellow pro-gun supporters. This DSF training will include drills to help you be at your best for the Blast!!
