No-nonsense training videos

Peter Burlingame, firearms trainer from St. Thomas, USVI and president of Self Defense Initiative

There are tens of thousands of firearms training videos on the web: some good, some bad and some that can get you hurt.

Peter Burlingame, AKA VIGunfighter,  president of the Self Defense Initiative on St. Thomas, posts some of the very best. His work is highly recommended.

You can access his You Tube Channel here.

He has basic skill drills and advanced team tactics. Production value is high.

Peter, a nationally-kn0wn trainer,  has decades of experience teaching cops, security officers,  civilians and me.

While videos will never replace live fire, they’re a great compliment to range time. They’re also a nice introduction to advanced techniques for new shooters, and for those looking to add tools to their tool box.
