Dear student;

About your instructor:

Will Dougan has been a State Certified firearms instructor since 2002. Over the years, he has instructed 1000’s of students: civilian, police, and military personal. He has consulted for the likes of the Memphis Police Training Academy, Discovery Channel International, Alpine Armory, and many others. He has trained people from all walks of life: from 80 year old grandmothers to SWAT operatives and everything in between. Since 1991 he has been in the ministry of United Methodist Church. Through Golden Triangle Defensive Tactics, he hopes to bring these two different worlds together. It is his most sincere hope that he can lead people to come to the same conclusion that he did many years ago:    ”I carry a gun because it is my responsibility alone- not that of the police, nor the government, nor the community- to defend the precious lives that God has entrusted to me.”
