Welcome to a different way to look at Personal Protection

Welcome, and thank you.

You are taking steps to becoming Responsibly Armed, and that is the best thing one can do to further the community effort of preserving our Second Amendment Rights.

My name is Jordan Billings and I have been an Instructor for almost a decade and have been in the firearms community for even longer. My background is entirely civilian-based, so my goal is to make a lot of information easy to consume for folks that don’t have a LEO or Military background, and build upon the perspective of a Responsibly Armed Citizen.

Not only do I host courses by well recognized names such as the NRA and the USCCA, but a lot of my personal course work is derived not only from those courses, but other top minds in the Self Defense industry such as names such as Rob Pincus, Chuck Taylor and Vladimir Vasiliev.

Safety is my biggest concern with students, and I do my upmost to make sure all are welcome and ensure the environment where courses are held is not only safe from mishaps but also get students set on the path of personal responsibility correctly; I am not out here to sell tactical courses or offer to sell you top dollar kit or survivalist techniques- There are plenty of other individuals out there more than capable of doing that. I focus on processing basic skills, and allowing the students the opportunity to think differently about everything they may have learned.

I hope everyone can benefit from these courses, and the education and background I have accumulated , and take ownership of being not only Responsibly Armed, but being able to prevent or counter threats to the best of ones ability.
