Reese FirearmsAbout the Instructor

Wes Reese Owner/Instructor Reese Firearms – Growing up in the mountains of Colorado I learned at a very young age, not only the importance of firearms, but the fact that safety comes first, last, and always. Progressing from the Red Ryder BB Gun I got when I was 6 to the 22 LR rifle I received when I was 9 safety was always paramount.

As I progressed from different firearms and their uses I noticed a common set of rules that I, and the NRA, preach to this day. It doesn’t matter if it is the Red Ryder BB Gun, 9mm, 45 ACP, M16, or the MK48 torpedo. You must always keep the weapon pointed in a safe direction, never point at anything you don’t wish to destroy, keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to shoot, treat every weapon as loaded, and always keep your weapon unloaded until ready to use it. More people get killed every year by an “unloaded” firearm or complacency, you must always handle your firearm in a safe manner and remembering those simple rules will keep you safe.

I am Navy Submarine Warfare Qualified, US Navy Pistol and Rifle Expert, Nuclear Weapons Security Guard, Navy Quick Reaction Force, North Carolina Department of Justice trained and certified, NRA Basic Pistol Instructor , and NRA Personal Protection In The Home trained and certified. Having trained people in the use of firearms for over 30 years I have trained every skill level imaginable, from Special Forces to 5 year olds. Learn the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owing and using a pistol safely today.

I am also a family man with a wonderful wife, 9 yr old son and I am a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. My number one mission in life is to protect my family at all costs. Family is why I carry concealed everyday, everywhere. – Wes Reese
