We started teaching AZ and Utah CWP (Concelaed Weapons Permit) classes way back in 2011 and it is time for an update. In this time we have helped more than 1,200 people get their CWP's and learn to shoot better.  Over this time we are proud to say that our classes are the most content full, safe, [...]

AR-15 Review of RTT Patriot

By | 2017-03-09T19:06:59+00:00 September 11th, 2015|Categories: General|

So after having owned several AR-15’s over the years I have had a wonderful experience recently. I wound up recalling the confusion of being a ‘first time AR buyer’ and not having a clue which of the myriad makes, models, manufacturers, prices, quality builds vs. junky rattletraps, etc. In the processes of starting to offer AR-15 [...]

21′ and a Knife Fight

Wow - what a great and short video. Not only does this show how dangerous people can be from far away, but watch how bad the guys grip on his concealed gun is in this particular position (at about 3:00 - 3:30) trying to get at it.  Many clients tell me they like this position but [...]

Safety and Complacency

I have had students approach me after classes and ask if I handle my gun in the same “ultra-safe” manner when no one is watching. I think it intrigues them because many times people comment on it as to how it looks exaggerated or fake to them.  I remind them that yes, I do these things [...]

Scott and Tamara – A (gun) love story

By | 2017-03-09T19:03:21+00:00 December 24th, 2014|Categories: General|

Wow.  What a great day I had yesterday! I had the honor of teaching two people how to shoot better – and how satisfying it was. Scott and Tamara are like many other couples in one way.  He has been around guns for a long time and she, well, not as much, but has a nifty [...]

Speed and Accuracy Drills

I am frequently asked what I do when I go to the range to practice? In these days of less time and even less money for things like practice and ammo, my personal rangetime is precious to me.  And ammo?  Well, if you have been a gun person for a while - you probably value ammo [...]

Range Safety Standards

I was asked what we do at Apex Arms to make our classes safe for the students and staff. It is a great question because other than word of mouth advertising it is hard to know how good or safe an instructor actually is until you see them in action. At Apex Arms we employ multiple [...]

Ignorant Media = Ignorant Masses

All week long I have been resisting the urge to finalize my opinion in the tragic shooting in St. Louis, Missouri.  I just don't have enough information - accurate information, yet.  As a student of things gun, hence the term gunist to describe myself, I am acutely aware that the opinions of what I will refer to as the [...]

NV Does NOT, Will Not Honor UT CWP (CCW)

By | 2017-03-09T19:00:52+00:00 August 6th, 2014|Categories: General|

Here we go again... The state of NEVADA will NOT accept the UTAH CWP (CCW or CWP to us AZers) in January. Regularly I encounter misinformation from competing CCW instructors that is outdated or simply wrong.  My only advice has been to be 'buyer beware,' and offer a discount to a class at Apex Arms.  Those that have taken advantage of this [...]
