Meet Our Founder

John Finnessy

John has taught over 20,000 students in one area of focus: the handgun. He does not offer multiple aspects of firearms training. His sole focus is tactically responsive shooting and getting you home, not to the morgue or prison cell.

It is for this reason not only civilians but also individual law enforcement professionals and various federal agencies have turned to John when it comes to using a firearm.

Whether you are new to firearms or need to take your skills to a higher level, John offers training methods and concepts you will not find elsewhere because his focus is beyond just focusing on the gun, but you as an individual and your relationship to the firearm producing a far greater result than stand single focused firearms training.

He truly takes handgun training to the next level.
