saftdlogoDefensive Training Solutions is proud to be one of the founding members of the SAF Training Division, 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 year the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division (SAFTD) 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 SAFTD and to begin the development of a number of foundational 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 SAFTD courses throughout the nation.
