Motto: “All things ready, if the mind be so.” William Shakespeare
Mission Statement: Liberty Handgun Training is committed to providing you with the best, most relevant firearms training available, in a safe, comfortable, and positive learning environment.
Training Philosophy: Liberty Handgun Training is much more than a place to fulfill the State of Oregon’s requirement so you can apply for your Concealed Handgun License. My general philosophy is to be practical and relevant and to do what works. I try to give my students an understanding of what it might be like to use a firearm to defend their lives, and the skill set to do it effectively.
Your Senior Instructor: Matthew Boltz is a former Police Officer, SWAT team member, and Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor. He worked the streets as a patrol Officer for 6 years, and was involved in countless, real world, tactical situations. After leaving Law Enforcement, his love for firearms instruction and training inspired him to begin teaching civilian defensive handgun classes, and subsequently, to create Liberty Handgun Training.
When deciding where to train, just ask yourself one question. Do you want to learn to shoot paper targets or defend your life with a firearm?
Since we spend most of our waking hours outside of our homes, it is not surprising that most threats to our safety happen there. We are at our most vulnerable when outside of our homes, as we have little control over who we encounter when in public places.
Few criminals wish to get into a fight with the intended victim. When you resist and defend yourself, most criminals desist and try to flee before the lawful defender has even cleared the holster. Again, since the criminals can’t tell who is armed ahead of time, concealed carry affords a protective umbrella, even to those who go unarmed.
Because of the diligence with which law abiding citizens conceal their side arms, we seldom realize just how many Americans go about their daily life armed and prepared. Unlike the victims of crimes, people who don’t become victims don’t appear in the news headlines.
