Message From Leon:

Training Is Our Top Service!  I only specialize in specific areas.  They are, Concealed Carry Handgun (CCH), Safe Gun Handling through the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), Combat Courses, Self Defense, and Pre-Hospital Emergency Care.  My training classes are intense, realistic, and exciting.  I am licensed to manufacture, sell explosives by the Federal ATF.  Our explosives assist us in injuries and combat training.  Our mock bleeding wounds match up to some of Hollywood's scariest movie scenes.   

Self Defense and Medical Products! 

My sales reps and I only endorse and provide products that work in real-life situations.  Self Defense technology and products that could save your life when seconds count!  Our Vest Trauma Kits are law enforcement preferred and our All-In-One First Responder bags are in compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.151 and 29 CFR 1910.1030.  

Consultant!  I offer real protection with dedicated independent contractors.  I will consult and coordinate your specific needs and fulfill your Ambulance, Police, and Fire needs for special events, day to day activities, or annual functions. 

I must first give credit to having parents with integrity, positive attitude and gave me a Christian way of life.  My success in life goes to leaders who pushed me beyond my perception. I would like each of them that have come across my life’s journey to know your hard work and friendship did not go unnoticed.  I recognize my colleagues' contributions and accomplishments.
