Defense Firearms Skill Builders

BSTA courses are open to all and can be curtailed to budgets and your personal defensive needs. We understand training time budgets are limited. BSTA does offer a number of open civilian oriented courses each year. Please see the schedule for details. Requests for groups and locations can be scheduled.

Why do you need training?
This one is by far the most powerful, and universal reason for anyone to own an understand Firearms. Human beings possess a strong self-preservation urge, as well they should – and a gun is very often the best tool one can have on hand to counter a threat to one’s life, and/or the lives of one’s family members. Police cannot protect citizens, and even if they could, they do not have an obligation to do so.

One must accept responsibility for one’s own security. To deny a human the right to defend him- or herself from any threat is the most grievous crime against humanity that I can think of. Human enslavement, you say? Whether you’re defending against an individual, a gang, or a government, gun ownership coupled with the knowledge and ability to properly use said guns is just about the most powerful force there is.

An armed people cannot be enslaved, and as gun ownership increases, crime decreases. It’s a win-win situation when more folks are armed. Many, if not most, instances of self defense don’t even necessitate the firing of a gun – its mere presence is usually enough.

Genocide? Well, that kind of thing can’t happen to an armed populace. Hitler’s holocaust, together with a world war, began by disarming the German people. So to own a gun for the purpose of defense is one of the most universal and basic human rights – period. This is the one right; we as Americans protect us from loss of sovereignty, even if the government grinds to a halt!
