Second Amendment Firearms Training & Education Association

2016logomdDefensive Strategies, LLC
 is proud to be one of the founding members of the Second Amendment Firearms Training & Education Association, and we offer the entire course line up. The firearms training community has lacked a nationwide training program specifically directed at training the new and inexperienced shooter in the defensive use of the most common platforms of firearms – handguns, shotguns and carbines. Over the past 5 years the Second Amendment Firearms Training & Education Association (SAFTEA) has embarked on the development of just such a training program.

Beginning in early 2014 experienced trainers from throughout the country were recruited to act as the core of SAFTEA and to begin the development of a number of foundation courses. The initial offerings include MOI – Methods of Instruction, Defensive Handgun 1, Defensive Handgun 2, Defensive Shotgun 1, Defensive Shotgun 2, Defensive Carbine 1 and Defensive Carbine 2 in addition to instructor level course work to train a national cadre of firearms instructors to offer SAFTEA courses throughout the nation.
