About Thunderbolt Defense

My name is Christopher Hill and I'm the owner of Thunderbolt Defense. I started my shooting career when I joined the United States Marine Corps in 2008 where I deployed twice, to Afghanistan in 2009 and to Jordan in 2011 to train the Jordanian army. 

During my time in the Marines I laid especially close attention to the shooting and small unit tactics parts of my job.

After my enlistment I became a civilian instructor and worked at one of the largest commercial ranges in the southeast United States. Eventually becoming the director of training, lead sales person and armorer. During that timeframe I have trained well over ten thousand students of various levels in various disciplines from beginners all the way to professional users with high operational tempo and skill level but the focus has always been the armed citizen and local LE officer. 

My primary focus is defensive and performance shooting so my students can excel in any environment where a handgun rifle or shotgun is needed.

Courses Taught

CCW, Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, Rifle, Shotgun, In Home Defense Training, Women's Only Courses, LEO / MIL / SEC Courses
