No Excuse for Failure to Train ~ No Substitute for Experience


Firearms Instructors Are Not Created Equal

Though their fundamentals have similar roots, it is their experiences that set them apart. The ***CTU*** Instructor Tim Barton leads the industry with 28yrs of experience employed as a Law Enforcement Agent, Firearms Instructor/Trainer and Hostage Negotiator. Any simple training course can qualify Private Citizens to receive a government issued Concealed Firearm Permit. Notably, through the ***CTU*** you can arm yourself with the tools and skills necessary to protect you and your loved ones. Lacking in these skills provides an avenue for the Private Citizen to violate the Use of Force/Deadly Force Laws; thus in the event of protecting your loved ones, you may become the criminal!!!

Being arrested/convicted/serving Jail or Prison time is absolutely avoidable with the proper training. There is no Excuse for Failure to Train and no Substitute for Experience!
