Who I am

Hello, I am Joe, and I am the owner and operator of Joe’s Firearms Training. I was born and raised in South Florida and grew up doing pretty much everything most other South Florida kids did. Only when I was about 4, I remember my dad showing me a revolver and telling me what it was, what it can do, and to never touch it unless he tells me it’s okay. From that moment forward,  I developed a deeper respect for guns at a very early age . I am almost 32 years old and I have been shooting for over 25 years. A few years back, I decided I was tired of working dead end jobs and I wanted to do something I was passionate about. That’s when I decided to become an NRA instructor and do what I love, so I did!

What I do

I Teach “The Knowledge,Skills, and Attitude” that it takes to store, handle, and fire a gun safely and effectively whether you are at a range shooting paper targets, out at your family’s hunting property or in the privacy of your own home facing an unwanted intruder.  I train everyone, from men, women, and children that have shot guns before to people who have never seen a gun before in their life. I teach concealed weapons classes as well as private one on one classes and/or groups. My main goal is to try and make every individual as comfortable as I am with a firearm. I also teach in-home protection classes which is where I teach you and/or your family what to do in the event someone breaks into your home.

I make it a point in fact to never belittle or put down any other instructors because there are a lot of great ones out there and I’m friends with quite a few. However, there are some out there that feel that once you give them $50 or even $75, all they need to do to make you prepared is have you watch a video about a pistols and revolvers, quickly go over range commands, show you a couple different shooting positions, and then make you fire 1 to 3 shots. Afterwards, they give you a big pat on the back and they tell you “congratulations here is your certificate.”

That just doesn’t cut it for me because I was taught there’s more to handling a firearm safely than that. If you take my course, I promise you will never forget the valuable things I have taught you about firearms and most importantly, you will comfortable carrying your own firearm. How is that possible you might ask? Mainly years of experience with firearms as well as being trained by some of the best people around! Interested in contacting Joe’s for firearms training? Give us a call today!

My family means everything to me and so does yours so I make it my goal to make sure you know how to protect your family. I take the safety of my students lives and the lives of their families just as serious as I would my own. When I teach you what to do in the event someone breaks in your home and intends to do harm to you or your loved ones; it is same things I would teach my loved ones. There is no greater feeling in the world knowing that I have passed on to you the knowledge it takes to protect your family. 

        I have friends and family in the military and in law enforcement and I have the upmost respect for those people that put on the uniforms, the badges, and the guns every day for the “RIGHT REASONS” and choose to become targets in order to protect our streets. The dangers that exist in the outside world will inevitably at one point in your life, enter unexpectedly. This is why I feel its important for everyone to learn to become their own protection period.  Please email or call me for more information and I will be more than happy to answer any of your questions.


Joe is an amazing instructor and really has a way of making you feel very comfortable with a firearm. He has patience, knowledge, and understanding for everyone. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.

Honestly this is one of the best firearms instructors that anyone could have. He knows his firearms and he knows how to properly train people firearm safety. Plain and simple if your looking to get a concealed permit or your just looking to get firearms training before you get your concealed permit this is the guy you need to talk to.

Vetting our Veterans

Joe’s Firearm Training was founded on the intentions of helping people. We are proud to announce the first non-profit sector of our business, Vetting our Veterans. Vetting our Veterans is about helping our retired military and veterans with PTSD.  We want to take the Chris Kyle approach by helping out vets with PTSD by taking them to the shooting range just blast off a few of their worries through shooting a couple rounds at paper targets. I want to be there for them to have someone to talk to.

I may just be an instructor at Joe’s Firearm Training but I have a lot of respect for the men and women that sacrificed so much to serve our country for so little. I want to make a difference in these soldiers’ lives because they have risked so much for mine as well as yours. Sometimes while risking it all for this country. Soldiers might stumble along the way and lose a little bit of their sanity. Joe’s Firearm Training will be here to help them regain their strength back even when they feel all is lost. Here at Joe’s Firearm Training, we have your back!

Our initiatives for the Vetting our Veterans programs will include; range time, targets, ammo, payment for my services, and possibly a meal for them depending on the time of day we meet. We will start promoting our non-profit Vetting our Veterans program by visiting the local VA hospitals in the area to spread the word about our goals. If you would like to support a vet, contact us today to find out how!
