He has experience with pistols, shotguns, rifles, and non-lethal use of force techniques that make him a well-rounded instructor. Chris is a certified NRA instructor and a Life of Duty member of the National Rifle Association.
In August 2019 Chris and Carrie attended a License to Carry (LTC) class where it became apparent to both of them that there was an urgent need for dedicated firearms instructors who relay the correct information and allow students to learn, practice and hone their skills with firearms. Hence, American Eagle Firearms Training was conceived.
