John Caile - Certified Firearms Instructor

Self Defense is never simple – In fact, most self-defense claims fail. The majority of these victims were nice people - they just didn't understand the realities of the criminal justice system. I will teach you what you need to know to help you survive, not just physically, but legally. You will learn how Police, prosecutors, judges, and juries operate, and what YOU can do to increase your chances of staying out of prison.

John Caile is one of America's top firearm instructors. He has trained civilian, military, and law enforcement personnel. He is NRA Certified in Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Home Firearm Safety, and Personal Protection in the Home. He has over 40 years of handgun experience, and provides “real world” training as advocated by world-renowned self-defense experts like Rex Applegate, Jeff Cooper, and others.

John was Communications Director for The Gun Owners Civil Rights Alliance, the gun rights organization responsible for passing Minnesota’s “shall-issue” carry permit law, and he continues to defend gun owner’s rights at all levels.

Now a Florida resident, John is the CEO and founder of the Society for the Advancement of Firearm Education, and advocates for affordable firearms instruction for current and retired Military personnel, battered women, and the poor.

John is also a staff writer for Conceal Carry Magazine, and is often a guest on Local and National Talk Radio, Network and Public Television, and has been widely quoted in the print media.
