Carry Trainer provides real solutions for real problems. It is incumbent upon individuals, businesses, and organizations to protect and defend innocent life.

We provide training for individuals who are looking to make themselves the best that they can be. There is much more to self-defense than obtaining a permit to carry a gun. Training in any martial skill is more than attending a class, it is a lifestyle choice and the decision to exercise the right of arming oneself for the defense of themselves and family should not be taken lightly. Bullets cannot be called back once loosed from the gun. Safety is not an inherent trait; it is learned through proper training and repetition.


  • Awareness
    Keeping yourself safe and out of harm’s way is always the best option.

    Combat mindset
    Are you mentally prepared to use deadly force to protect yourself or the life of another?

    Use of cover and concealment

    Understanding the rapid changing dynamics of self- defense. Making well placed shots while being fired upon is a lot different than making holes in cardboard during a comfortable day at the indoor range.

  • The Right Tools
    Firearm and gear selection.

    Continuing Training and Education
    Continuing training and education. Imagine the most terrifying and stressful experience of your life, double it and now imagine having to perform fine motor skill movements such as drawing, aiming and firing a pistol all the while your heart is pounding in your ears. Does your level of training have you prepared for such a scenario?

    Know Your Rights
    Legal and ethical implications of deadly force.

Carry Trainer

While crossing our amazing country I had plenty of alone time. I spent some of it taking inventory of my many blessings. I awoke this morning with a heart filled with thankfulness. @mrscarrytrainer thanks for helping me live my dreams.
As we shift our gaze to things which bring us joy we create more of it. Focusing on the crud will bring you more of the same. Not my rules, but it's accurate.
Sincerely think of all you have, don't worry about what you don't have, who hurt you, or how you messed up. Onwards. "If I could give you a day, I'd give you one just like today"
Thanks John Denver. Rest in peace.

2 Day Fighting Pistol course this weekend in Burlington North Carolina. Same course the weekend after in Shelton Washington. Let's train!

I love your outlook on life, man. So easy to focus on the negative somedays it's hard to see how much good is in your life. Today was one of those days. This post got me out of the funk I was in. Thanks.

NICE Mick !!!
