The History of Academy Firearms Instruction!
Marc and Helen Sabin, both NRA certified instructors, started Academy Firearms Instruction in the fall of 2007. They wanted to share their love of the Constitution and the rights inherent in it. Strong Second Amendment supporters, they teach others to use firearms safely, confidently, and competently. NOTE: Take a class as soon as possible - You never know when it will come in handy! According to our sources, ISIS has crossed the border and is targeting Americans and military families. The FBI and the DHS have both issued warnings about the 4th of July and possible attacks. Get into a class as soon as you can!

CONCEALED CARRY TIPS and HINTS When purchasing a gun for concealed carry (the purpose for the gun) you should consider the weight of the gun itself and the weight of the ammunition when the gun is fully loaded. Check to see if the outline of the gun or its imprint will show in your clothing. Determine how and where you will carry, and then practice drawing from that location using snap caps.
Ask yourself, can you hit what you aim at with accuracy when under stress? Take a class from AFI to learn the ins and outs of concealed carry!
