From Bob Haygood, certified instructor
I recently watched a short news brief on stolen valor. Someone pretending to be a military hero that was not.
It is amazing to me people claim to be something they have not put blood, sweat, and courage into. Stealing military or LEO valor really is awful. Those are the true hero’s that protect us on a 24/7 basis.
Kind of goes hand in hand with training. Just because you own a gun or have a License to carry, does not make you proficient with a firearm no more than carrying a tourniquet makes you a doctor.
When you come train with me at Star Elite Defense LLC, you are not getting an instructor that has been in the military or law enforcement. You are getting a civilian that has been shooting and competing in all shooting disciplines since 6 years of age. You are getting someone that has trained at numerous schools/classes over the past 21 years with true hero’s in military and law enforcement.
One which I am certified by (in his training system) that is my tactical mentor, BRIAN HOFFNER. Brian is a Houston Police Dept. SR Instructor and military Vet.
My point is there are many great instructors in Texas and across the country. Whether you come train at my private facility or not, seek training from someone that has put time into striving for a better way to shoot and survive in that terrible and ugly moment of conflict that no one wants to happen.
That is what we are trying to accomplish at SED LLC.
I say “WE” because I am passing knowledge on from guardian hero’s that I have learned from over the past 21 plus years. At STAR ELITE DEFENSE, we also have guest instructors such as what will be in the attachment.
They offer a world of skills and shooting combat knowledge. If you carry a pistol, thinking about carrying a pistol, or just want to expand your skills, consider to come train. Train to protect yourself, your loved ones, friend, and community. As Hoffner says, train to be a sheepdog and allow others to be sheep.
Please feel free to pass this on to any responsible citizens that you know and would like to further or begin to enhance their shooting skills.
