The Shepherd School, Hosted by David Nash

In today's show David is interviewing Tom Givens of Rangemaster.  Before coming to Rangemaster full-time in 1996, Tom completed a 25-year career in law enforcement and specialized security work. 

Tom has over thirty-five years experience in firearms instruction. He has trained security officers; law enforcement officers at the local, state, and federal level; and foreign government agents. He is a well known professional in the firearm industry.

In this episode we discuss firearm training - including what skills the new shooter needs to focus on, handgun selection, firearm statistics, holster selection, and what the typical handgun permit student looks like demographically.


We spend a little time talking about balancing a person's Constitutional right to own guns with the responsibility to train.

Tom is very knowledgeable, and trains constantly - which allows tonight's show to pass on some very valuable insights into the world of defensive pistol craft.

I would invite you to visit the website to learn about their classes, as well as their Annual Tactical Conference.
