Hello! I'm Neil Tubbs, owner and lead instructor at Base Camp Defense.
For new and novice gun owners, firearms training can be intimidating and it doesn't have to be. Browse firearms training websites and you'll often see images of shooters wearing plate carriers, ballistic helmets, and night vision goggles. You'll hear handguns referred to as "weapons systems" and meaningless gun culture slang. You won't encounter any of that here. I offer a different kind of learning experience. My goal is simple - deliver quality firearms training in a safe, fun, clear, straightforward, and easy to understand manner where you learn at your own pace and are supported every step the way with absolutely no judgement.
I understand that the overwhelming preponderance of firearm owners do not have unlimited time and funds to spend on firearms training, which is why my focus will always be on the fundamentals. Mastering the fundamentals will allow you to confidently own and operate your firearm safely, responsibly, and proficiently.
I am a life-long firearms enthusiast and ardent 2nd Amendment supporter. While I firmly believe in everyone's natural right to own a firearm for lawful recreational and defensive use, I also believe that owning a firearm comes with significant responsibility - I am passionate about teaching safe and responsible firearm ownership.
I have over 35 combined years of experience in law enforcement, fire/emergency medical services, and corporate security.
I am an NRA Certified Firearms Instructor, an NRA Certified Chief Range Safety officer, and an ASIS Certified Protection Professional.
You owe it to yourself to ensure you possess the fundamental knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for owning and operating a firearm safely, responsibly, and proficiently. I look forward to partnering with you on that journey!
