Your course on personal protection was absolutely beyond my wildest dreams of what I expected in that type of class. Your professionalism, knowledge and experience really create a perfect combination for a great experience. I can't imagine that there are many gun owners out there that would not benefit from your courses. Keep up the good work.

 If you are a law-abiding U.S. citizen, at least 18 years old, and are serious about learning to use a handgun for personal protection, you are on the right page! My name is Jim Trockman, and I am an NRA Certified Handgun Instructor, NRA Certified Personal Protection Inside The Home Instructor, NRA Certified Refuse To Be A Victim Instructor, NRA Membership Recruiter, Certified Illinois Concealed Carry Instructor, Armed Citizens' Legal Defense Network Member/Recruiter, International Defensive Pistol Association Member, Competitor, and Certified Range Safety Officer... 

"Why you choose to own or carry a handgun is your business - teaching you how to use it accurately and responsibly is my business. Otherwise, it's nobody's business!"

Teaching adults practical defensive solutions using handguns requires specialized skills and experience, and is my primary focus. 
If you have never or seldom shot before, or have a desire to overcome a fear of guns, I can definitely help! All of my clients receive private, strictly confidential, professional instruction...your name or photo will never appear on my website, facebook, or twitter...if you are wondering why this matters, then you should enroll in my course, and find out!...

The best info on my courses comes from my (please click here now) students!

If you qualify for my course, you will discover that the emphasis will be on understanding how your behavior, when faced with a potentially lethal encounter, can affect the safety of others as well as yourself. My comprehensive overview of personal protection will demonstrate how to choose the best option to keep yourself and your family safe under a variety of potentially dangerous situations. In addition to studying personal protection in my classroom, you will have an eye-opening personally guided outdoor range adventure as well!

Most importantly however, you will not be required to bring your own gun, your own ammunition, have any permits, or waste time and money learning skills in a group class that are out of context with your personal requirements and objectives...

Anyone can memorize a list of safety rules. In my class, you will learn how to apply them...My lesson plans include photos, videos, and other i
nternet resources. Studying real-life scenarios will help you to visualize when you might need to depend on a handgun for the survival of yourself and/or your family. If you are ever forced to shoot an individual who has crossed your pre-determined boundary of personal safety, and lethal force is required, are you prepared for what comes next? Who do you call? What do you say? What shouldn't you say? When you draw your gun, and pull that trigger, your life will change forever... That said: would you be surprised to learn that the conventional wisdom regarding handgun safety and personal protection is almost always wrong? First example: upon hearing the proverbial sound of breaking glass in the middle of the night, what's the first thing you do? Call 911? Second example: everyone knows that if a person with a gun or knife is 21 feet away from you or less, they are a lethal threat, and its legal to shoot, right? Third example: that makes 21 feet the ideal distance to practice, right? WRONG, WRONG, AND WRONG! No other handgun courses offer unique online resources, expert instruction, can be completed in one day or less, and guarantees that you will be taught shooting skills correctly!

"I absolutely guarantee that having the opportunity to safely and correctly learn to shoot both revolvers and semi-automatics during a private session with me is the best possible way to take your first shots!"

Learning how to properly stand, grip, aim, manage a trigger, handle recoil, breathe, and follow-through to the next shot, are just a few of the fundamentals you'll learn correctly in my classes. Knowing how to grip a handgun properly before making a purchase from a reputable dealer is essential...what is choosing a gun that 'feels the best' in your hand worth, if you later find out it was being held incorrectly?


My course is not the proverbial 'walk in the park'. You will have fun, but be ready to work hard...there is a lot to learn before becoming a truly responsible gun owner. To be well-prepared, you will need a good night's sleep, a positive and safety-conscious attitude, appropriate clothing based on weather predictions, sturdy shoes, a baseball-type hat to reduce glare, plenty of drinks, a sack lunch, and a few snacks...If you already own a handgun, bring it unloaded in a case or its original box, including instruction manuals, at least 50 rounds of target ammo and 20 rounds of defensive grade ammo. Its essential that the ammo you have purchased be compatible with the gun you have purchased! I will provide literally EVERYTHING else including several of the highest quality and most reliable revolvers and semi-automatics, featuring the latest in laser training technology, and plenty of ammo for them! Not only will you be taught safely  and correctly, but quickly and efficiently as well - and I guarantee you will be proud of the way you shoot!

"Why risk buying an unreliable handgun - not suited to your purpose -  waste money on expensive and hard to find ammo, and still not be able to shoot with defensive accuracy?"

If you are interested in learning the fundamental shooting skills that are needed to solve realistic problems encountered by real people who are living real lives - set your sights on a calendar, find a date that works, and call or shoot me an email... 
NOTE: Before class begins, you will be required to pay in advance by cash or check. You will also be required to sign a release of liability form the same as you must do before shooting at any public range...

Please call in person or email for more information and pricing options. Thanks for your interest in my classes!
