Real-world personal-safety systems used by police


For anyone who owns or is thinking about buying a firearm…

Don’t Even Think About Purchasing or Carrying a Firearm Until You Have These Tips

My name is Dave Young, the founder of Arma Training, US Fighting Systems and Your Family Defense – and a director at the Vistelar Group.

You probably reached this page because you’ve seen one of my firearm safety articles or videos somewhere on the Internet.

Since 1990 I’ve certified thousands of professionals (police, corrections, military) to use firearms as Firearm Safety Instructors — but I’ve been frustrated with how this weapon is often treated as a toy by the general public.

Many people believe that owning and operating a firearm is as simple as pointing the weapon and pulling the trigger.

I can tell you from over 20 years of experience, THAT’S JUST NOT TRUE!

For a firearm to be effective, you must know how to safely carry and correctly use it – and then, most importantly, have the right expectations for its effects on the attacker and yourself. The bad guys don’t always go down like in the movies, and you need to be able to justify your actions in court.

When a firearm is used, it is a life-or-death situation – and that’s NOT the time to “figure it out.”

So, that’s why I decided to develop an ongoing series of Firearm Safety Tips and put up this web page so people could access them from one place.

Whether you already carry a firearm or are purchasing one for the first time, you should access these tips — so, when your life is at stake, you don’t end up using what I call the “spray and pray” technique. That NEVER works!

To your safety and security,

Dave Young
