About Sarasota Safety & Firearm Training

John Long is the Owner and Founder of Sarasota Safety & Firearm Training located in Sunny Sarasota Florida.

I have been a Concealed Carry License holder for 38 years, and thankfully have never had to defend myself with Deadly Force.

I became an Instructor because I was concerned at the minimal level of Education and Training required to obtain your CWFL in both Georgia and Florida.

Situational Awareness is key to avoiding situations, so we include this along with the Legal aspects related to the Carry and use of any weapons to defend yourself.

The next goal is for the student to understand that the Firearm they choose use must be suited for the job at hand.

The firearm must FIT their hand, they must be able to operate ALL the controls, can they RACK the slide on a semi-auto pistol, can they manage the FELT RECOIL...

These are inportant because we do not want you to end up with a $300.00 - $600.00 brick sitting in your dresser draw that you hate, and will not train with.

I tailor classes to the needs and ability of students so they are successful in obtaining their desired goal.

I have trained students from the age of 10 all the way to 84 years of age.

My goal is your success......
