Defensive Handgun Training


"For 10 years I have taken every opportunity to learn from David Burnell - live talks, seminars, YouTube videos, podcasts, DVD’s, and David has been my defensive handgun instructor for 6 years. I guess you could say “I’m a huge fan”. People say that you should never meet your hero's because you will be disappointed. This will never be the case with David Burnell. In fact: David Burnell’s example, instruction, and friendship have meant everything to me. I look forward to seeing what David will teach us next." Jared E.

David is the author of the acclaimed Defensive Handgun and Tactics DVD Series. He has been teaching Tactics and firearms courses for decades. He is a military veteran/instructor, former NRA certified instructor, counter terrorism live fire instructor and body guard for high risk areas.

He is an expert on pistolrifleshotgun and sub machine guns. He is a distinguished graduate of multiple shooting programs and finds teaching one of his most enjoyable activities.
