Double A Consultants is a firearm training and consulting company that focuses on the basics of the safe operation and ownership of a firearm. Throughout my life since the age of 15, I have been exposed to firearms thanks to my father and grandfather and was taught the old school way by them and then a more comprehensive and intense version of all weapon systems in the U. S. Army. As a former Paratrooper my job as a Forward Observer was to be extremely familiar with all hand guns, machine guns, mortars as well as field artillery, naval gunfire and close air support. One of my favorite you see pictured on the right is the M203 that I had the honor of carrying during my service after the Gulf War on the DMZ in S. Korea. It was my all time favorite out of all of the weapon systems I was exposed to.
Throughout my life I have been to many ranges and sought out further training to enhance the skills I had to learn during my service. However during many visits to these ranges, I felt even more afraid of the people in the lanes next to me than some of the combat and even airborne operations we did in the Army.
So understanding what you have in your hands, whether it be a revolver, pistol, long gun or shot gun, we can help you improve your skill and knowledge. I was amazed at the level of incompetence I was experiencing when I decided to go out to shoot for myself. Double A was created to help the novice all the way up to the experience marksman to get better at their chosen weapon system. Fundamentals of shooting, safety, care, cleaning and the understanding of ballistics makes you a better shooter. Not understanding these things can jeopardize your own safety as well as those around you, including your own family.
We look forward to having you as our student and friend as we spread our message that yes, you can be a badass, an expert marksman, and even get better if you have been shooting your entire life, but you better understand what you have in your hand first. A gun is a tool, the human is the weapon and far too many innocent victims have been killed by bad humans. We want to help stop you from being a victim, protect yourself with confidence, protect your family and be prepared if something ever does happen when you need to use your gun for other than recreational purposes. Thank you for finding us and hope to see you soon at one of our classes.
