Firearms and Self-Defense Training


175 per session - - Posted Mar 14, 2016

The worst case scenario you come across a gun and you don't know what to do. Just like knives, electrical wiring, or chemicals, these could all be potential hazards in the wrong environment and hands. Learning how to handle a firearm could potentially prevent a tragedy.

My name is Eli Kim and I am a certified NRA instructor for basic firearms safety.
Courses I'm trained to instruct include:
Basic Pistol
Personal Protection in the Home

You do not have to be well experienced nor own a firearm. Every student, begins with the basics and works from there. Self-defense training is building simply on top of the basics of safe firearms handling.

I can do instruction per hour or by recommended certified 8 hour course load. Firearms, ammo, hearing and eye protection, range fees will be supplied and included.

*It is recommended but not required for Personal Protection in the Home students to bring their own firearm for familiarity and troubleshooting.

Students must be able to lift 20 lbs, no criminal record, and have valid state or federal identification .

Training & Qualifications

NRA Certified Instructor: Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home

Availability & Preferences

I'm available most weekdays afternoons and evenings for instruction.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Eli Kim

Experienced and knowledgeable firearms instructor. I teach basic firearms safety, handling, manipulation, and use. I am certified as a NRA instructor for Pistol and Personal Protection in the Home. ... I've been around firearms for over a decade as an instructor and a shooting sports competitor. Currently, I am an editor and published writer for several firearm magazines in print. I can also help edit and proofread documents, stories, or letters. I am a patient instructor who takes safe firearms handling as a priority. Shooting can be both a valuable skill and a source of entertainment as long as safety standards are always maintained. I'm a very mild personality and am great with details and analysis. We can go through the fundamentals and I'll do my best to document and work thru any troubleshooting with you. Previous to my employment in the firearms industry, I was a Software Test Engineer, a sushi chef, and a buyer. I even drove with a rideshare program in my spare time. I got such high ratings they wanted me to tutor new Lyft drivers! (I felt like I did nothing special). But if a job requires an attention to detail, analysis, and planning, I excel at it. I only teach part-time and enjoy it more
