Instructor Credentials are Essential to YOUR Success
Jeff Nix has decades of firearms and training experience . . .

I began my instructor journey in 2010 although I have been shooting guns since I was young. It was an honor to have the mentorship of my NRA Training Counselor, Tom who I miss dearly since his passing, and from whom I learned what my responsibilities are as an instructor and mentor to what are now many men and women who have trusted me in their self-protection journey. Since then, i have pursued other instructor training credentials, some good, some great; but most importantly I have built an excellent offering of courses that will help you, a civilian, to increase your odds of prevailing when seconds count. Best of all, we not only prepare you for the fight of your life, but how to avoid it completely.

If you would like to learn more about how I can help you in your journey as a student or an instructor, I look forward to hearing from you. For me, as the time flies by, I always look forward to your call, text or email and taking the next journey!

Civilian Firearms Training Solutions . . .
We meet you where you are in your journey to self-defense empowerment.

When you decide it is time to purchase a gun for self-defense, the first step is to let us help you select the gun and gear that is best suited to your unique qualities so that you will not lose your gun in a fight for your life. The training we offer is designed to help civilians, like you, become educationally and emotionally empowered to increase the odds you will prevail when seconds count.

It takes more than qualifying for a CCW Permit to be able to be your own bodyguard and first responder. I would be honored to help you with your journey not just for a CCW course requirement but each step of the way as I have with other students throughout the years.  Let's chat about what your goals are and how we can work together to reach your full potential to get you better prepared within your busy schedule that will not take a lifetime to perfect. Email me or give me a call at your convenience. If you should miss me, please leave a message or send me a text and I will reply ASAP.

How we are different . . .

It is very simple actually. FRFT is totally civilian oriented and has the know-how and tools you need to succeed as a civilian when you find yourself in a compromising situation.

What to expect . . .

Safety is preached often but rarely practiced consistently. FRFT practices what others may only preach, every moment of every course, safety comes first. Our students are trained to safely and effectively use the tools and knowledge learned in our courses.
