Purchasing and owning a firearm requires that you respect the weapon. Lack of respect may lead to self-inflicted injury and possibly death to you or someone you care for. Learning to be SMART and SAFE with the weapon is the first step to responsible gun ownership.
So far in 2021 there have been over 90 unintentional shootings reported, 21 of them have led to a death.*
10-8 Safety is not just about educating you on your weapon and the safety rules. We also teach cutting edge tactics that are based on science and experience in the real world. We have developed a fundamental system called MMAST (Mindset. Movement. Accuracy. Speed. Transition). This system helps develop your skill and knowledge on firearms safety and tactics.
Our instructors have had the training and the experience. We can explain to you the best tactics depending on the situation you find yourself in. Understanding not just the weapon, but how to use it correctly, accurately and safely.
Originally, focused on increasing the safety margin for law enforcement officers to survive an officer involved shooting, we have combined our experience to include safety AND tactics.
In police radio jargon, 10-8 means “I am in service.” Meaning, the officer is READY to do his duty and respond to calls.
We have expanded this meaning so that “In Service” is not just for a police officer but for anyone who sees the importance of knowing how to defend themselves using a firearm.
Whether it’s working a private security company, military, police or a dedicated citizen diligent enough to take the training, we strive to make firearms instructions educational, safe and enjoyable.

It’s easy to be hard, it’s hard to be smart! In Marine Force Recon, we were trained to be both but learned the value of making intelligent choices rather than rely only on our toughness. My training and experience is accessible through this website and in person learning for affordable prices.
