Since Maryland went “Shall Issue” in June of ’23, firearms instructors have seemingly popped up on every street corner to try and get a piece of the pie.. What are their credentials? Current or ex law enforcement? Active or retired/discharged military? Special Ops? They run the gamut. I’ve been doing this since 2015 and specialize in small groups & personal attention.
I excel at teaching, am patient, skilled at presenting and detail oriented. The vast majority of people are looking for basic to advanced training to protect themselves and their loved ones while being safe and having fun. Are you at a point in your life where you have decided to buy a new handgun or want to learn how to safely store, use and maybe even clean the gun you already own? Some want to learn how to make themselves and their home less of a target to predators, and a smaller amount want to take it to a higher level learning defensive shooting techniques and apply for their Maryland Wear & Carry or explore the action shooting sports. Those are my specialties and why you should train with Condition One.
I’ve invested many years and many dollars studying, taking training and earning a number of certifications from the USCCA & NRA. I also compete in USPSA practical or “action shooting” sports because it’s the best way to safely train under stress while having fun. My accumulated experience helps me guide you through your learning experience and have a ton of tips & tricks to improve anyone’s skills.
Be realistic. Don’t get swallowed up in the “tactical” hype. Start with and master the basics. OWN the basics. Build the base of your training pyramid deep and wide. That’s more than enough for most people.
