STUDENT TESTIMONIAL

I was so excited and a little nervous about taking this course. I started to cancel twice! A friend 

of ours, who is quite comfortable with firearms recommended my husband and I to seek out 

Dr. Holifield and I am so happy we did. This course taught us how to select the best firearm and 

for me to feel more comfortable around handguns. I have had previous firearm courses but, 

this one provided a great deal of information and training.

Thanks Dr. Holifield, for calming my fears and teaching me the importance 

of good firearm training!

TIPS To Live By


  • Guns have only two enemies, Rust and Politicians.
  • It's always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.
  • Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.
  • Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.
  • Never say "I've got a gun." If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off or the shotgun rack!
  • The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes, at 1400 feet per second the response time of a .357 magnum is nearly instantaneous.
  • The most important rule in a gun fight is: Always Win - cheat if necessary - you dictate who fires the first shot!
  • Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets... You may get killed with your own gun, but he'll have to beat you to death with it, cause it'll be empty.
  • If you are in a gun fight:
  • Shoot to kill.
  • If you're not shooting, you should be loading.
  • If you're not loading, you should be moving,
  • If you're not moving, you're dead.
  • In a life and death situation, do something...It may be wrong, but do something!
  • If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?
  • You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much a universal language.
  • You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.
