FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Source of this release: The Second Amendment Foundation Training Division
Manchester, NH – November 12th 2020 – It has long been noted that the firearms training community has lacked a nationwide training program specifically directed at training the new and inexperienced as well as the experienced shooter in the defensive use of the most common platforms of firearms – pistol, shotgun and carbine. Over the past 5 years the Second Amendment Foundation Training Division – SAFTD (www.saftd.org) – has embarked on the development of just such a training program.
Beginning in early 2014 experienced trainers from throughout the country were recruited to act as the core of SAFTD and to begin the development of a number of foundational courses. The initial offerings include MOI – Methods of Instruction, Defensive Handgun 1, Defensive Handgun 2, Defensive Shotgun 1, Defensive Shotgun 2, Defensive Carbine 1 and Defensive Carbine 2 in addition to instructor level course work to train a national cadre of firearms instructors to offer SAFTD courses throughout the nation.
All of the courses offered are presented with the defensive use of the individual firearm in mind. While familiar foundational material is presented, additional defensive topics and activities are included such as firearm selection, holsters and much more.
Today, the SAF Training Division programs have grown to over 100 different educational courses, thousands of students and hundreds of Instructors nationwide. With our rapid expansion and other business challenges we are also announcing that the Second Amendment Foundation & the SAF Training Division are going our separate ways and we will no longer be associated with the Second Amendment Foundation.
The SAF Training Division would like to thank the Second Amendment Foundation for all the help and assistance they offered along the way. However, as with any child there comes a time to leave the nest. Along with the new venture also comes a new name; the SAF Training Division will no longer be referred to as the SAF Training Division and will now be referred to as the Second Amendment Firearms Training & Education Association (SAFTEA). With the massive amount of materials, websites, social media platform etc, this is a major undertaking to change it all, so we ask you to bare with us. We expect all program materials, websites etc to be change and updated by February, 15 2021.
