Ryan C. – “Defenders Series” (Feb. 2019)
“What you don’t know, you don’t know, please do your loved ones a favor and take the “Defenders Series” training courses.
A weapon is just a tool, and if you think a tool will save your life, you are WRONG. It is the way you know how to use it correctly, and chances are, you are using it incorrectly. Although you may have Military, Law Enforcement or any other weapons training this training will benefit you far beyond your expectations.
You will not find a more honest and passionate instructor who will push you past your best. I am confident no other teacher like Adam can make you more emotionally, mentally and physically ready for the fight of your life.
The amount of time this course takes is minimal compared to the time we spend doing useless things in our life that doesn’t better us. Please DO NOT put this training off. These few days of training will give you a different look on life and prepare you to be courageous if the time comes.
This course is for the beginner to the advanced. So gather up the Spouse, Family, Friends or Co-Workers and come build confidence, make friends and better understand what it means to defend life and protect the ones you love.”
Madeline R. – Defensive Fighting Handgun I (March 2019)
“My whole family and I took the Defensive Pistol Class at Defenders USA with Adam and Grizz. We all very much enjoyed the class and feel like we are better prepared to use a firearm in defense if needed. The class was extremely informative and gave us great instruction on how to properly hold a firearm, load the gun under stress, and use it effectively while under an intense situation. The instructors use vivid descriptions, are good humored and are ready to answer any questions you may have. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and definitely would recommend this class to anyone who wanted to learn more about pistols and defense. I plan on taking more of their courses.”
Patrick D. – Defensive Fighting Handgun I grad (April 2019)
“I have been around and used firearms all of my life, age 52 now. I have had a CCW since age 21 and attended the required classes in multiple states.
I knew I needed more training on the actual use of a handgun as the defensive tool it was being carried for. But, was never able to find a workable course. Stumbling upon Adam’s course changed that.
In the Defensive Combat Handgun 1 course, Adam was able to teach how to accurately fire under stress, the kind of stress that make the sights disappear, and make it a repeatable skill that can be practiced and improved. I am very glad to have found Adam’s organization and hope to gain further training under his tutelage.
The class was worth every penny and much more”.
C. Caldwell – Fighting Rifle Applications Course (April 2019)
“Adam Winch is a dedicated, educated, professional instructor. I took his “Fighting Rifle Applications” course and I absolutely appreciated his immediate action to and response to us to focus on key points he was expressing throughout his course. He was safe, competent and highly focused. It was a tremendous course with digestible information relating to his his key points. I highly recommend to all professionals, Veterans, law enforcement, first responders, realtors, conceal carriers, hunters, sportsmen and sportswomen, to take Adam Winch’s courses. I look forward to many more course experiences with Adam Winch. I am recommending Adam to all of my immediate friends and we are ready for the training he provides. Thank you for your time and your professionalism.”
Johann L. – Real Estate Agents Defensive Handgun Course (April 2019)
“I went into his training with all hesitation and nerves, he quickly calmed them and helped me get over so many fears in a short amount of time. Adam’s knowledge and passion are apparent in every thing he does. I will continue my path with his instruction. Thankful for him and his course.”
Rob L. – multiple D-USA courses grad
“I for one believe in Adam and trust his research and knowledge. I guarantee he has done his homework. He is very thorough in both his research and training he provides. If you haven’t taken his “Defenders Series” course, you owe it to yourself to do so. Training is of utmost importance and this is one of the finest you’ll find in this area.
If you carry a firearm you need legal protection.
If you carry a firearm you need good training no matter what experience you may have.
Defenders USA is the finest you will find.”
Carl R. – Feb. 2019 “Defenders Series grad
“I’ve been legally carrying for eight years now and, after taking the defenders series coarse, wow…I had no idea what I didn’t know. I also am now aware of how much more I need to learn.
There is information that I learned in this coarse that everyone who carries needs to know, has to know, should feel obligated to know! If you are already aware of what I am referencing then that is great. If not then I highly recommend you take Adam’s coarse. You will not regret it!”
Isaac H. – Feb. 2019 “Defenders Series” grad
“A very comprehensive and dare I say necessary recourse for anyone who wants to carry a gun for self defense. Adam is a tough but loving instructor who knows how to teach and train like nobody I’ve ever met. I would highly recommend any Defenders series class”
Rob L. – Urgent & Tactical Medical Course grad (Jan. 2019)
“Just finished up the Tactical Urgent Trauma course. Wow, thought I knew a lot about urgent care being a former EMT and First Responder. This course takes it to a whole new level. Instructor, training material and hands on practice were top notch. I highly recommend this training to anyone and especially those involved in the field of protection of other’s.”
John W. – Defensive Fighting Handgun I grad – (Dec. 2018)
“Instructions are superb.”
Glen W. – CCW/CHP & Defensive Fighting Handgun Course (Dec. 2018)
“Best handgun training I’ve been through. Between military and law enforcement I’ve seen some of the best and Adam puts them all to shame!”
Kevin L. (Former LEO) – CCW/CHP Course grad (01/2019)
“Adam is such an emotional and intelligent man, his knowledge of the law and gun training is hands down the best I have ever seen. Even been in Law Enforcement he taught me things I was unaware of. Thank you again.”
Bob W. (Retired LEO) – CCW/CHP Course grad (Jan. 2019)
“I was blown away with Adam’s passion and knowledge of the gun laws in Colorado and his desire to teach to train CCW/CHP classes to anyone willing to learn. He is something this country needs more of instead of politicians who think gun control is taking away our freedom and right to keep and bear arms. My hat goes off to Adam.”
Lauren L. – Dec. ’18 CCW / CHP grad
“Took your CCW class last month and LOVED EVERY MINUTE. Cant wait to do more with you guys.”
K. Lewis – CCW & Defensive Fighting Handgun student (Dec. 2018)
“Hands down one of, if not THE BEST firearm training experiences I’ve ever had. And those who know me know I’m no stranger to the shooting sports. I decided to take this course along side my wife, thinking it would just be a nice “refresher”…little did I know how much I had, and still have, to learn. Adam and his team pushed us hard and made us get out of our comfort zones, which is the only real way to grow and improve…yet it was still a total blast. Best of all, my initially reluctant wife enjoyed it as much as I did. For those of you here in Western CO, you probably don’t realize how fortunate we are to have a resource like this right here in our back yard. So before you lay down any more cash to add the next “new & shiny tacti-cool hardware toy” to the rest of your safe queens at home…consider investing in a “software” upgrade for your brain by spending some quality time with Adam and his crew, and actually learn how to use some of those cool toys. It will be an immensely more valuable investment. Great job Adam!!! We’ll be seeing you again soon for more.”
Bradley B. – Aug. 2018 Defensive & Fighting Rifle Applications student
“You may have seen posts from me before recommending Defenders-USA training here in Grand Junction. Here is another one!
I completed the Defensive and Fighting Applications Rifle course this Saturday and again was not disappointed! I grew up hunting and using rifles but I did not have much experience with the AR-15 platform or using a rifle from a defensive/home defense perspective. After a long and challenging day, and around 650 rounds, I can say I have a much better grasp and much more confidence!
As always at Defenders-USA, the course was taught by highly trained and battle tested instructors that are able to teach effectively.
If you have firearms in your home or are even considering Concealed Carry, you really ought to look up Defenders-USA and get some REALISTIC training.
Defenders-USA also does unarmed self-defense classes, and I am looking forward to being able to participate in one of those. They have one coming up this weekend I believe.
Once again, I can’t recommend Defenders-USA highly enough! It is one thing to have defensive “equipment” at your disposal, but it is even more important in my opinion to have the realistic training necessary to use WHATEVER equipment you have available in an effective manner! Defenders-USA provides that training!”
Matthew B. (Tac Med 2018 grad)
“Of all the gun training classes I have take over the years, the Urgent Trauma & Immediate Tactical Medical Care has been the most important. Defenders USA held a 2 day class in Grand Junction this weekend and I was fortunate to be able to attend. We went from classroom, to test dummies to real life practical exercises. I highly recommend making the investment in yourself.”
Cathey U. – Aug. 2018 CCW & Defenders Series
“I had a Super Duper time in your classes this past weekend! I’m not of Facebook so I can’t brag you up there. Thanks so much for all you do. Hopefully my hubby can make his way up for a series sometime.”
Taylor R. – Aug. 2018 CCW & Defenders Series grad
“Holy smokes!! If you think you’re “good” with your hand gun, think again. High stress, high intensity, maintaining good fundamentals and hitting your target all at the same time is extremely hard. Adam is the best trainer I’ve ever had. I highly encourage everyone who owns a gun go to a couple of courses ASAP. Two days and over 1,000 rounds fired, I still need more training! 👊🏼”
Michelle M. – Aug. 2018 CCW & Defenders Series grad
“I took Adam’s Defenders Series handgun course due to my husbands insistence. I figured it would be a boring lecture followed by some target shooting. Boy was I wrong. Adam is an excellent instructor! Not only is his course very instructive, but he inspires you to really think about the great responsibility and consequences that come with having a concealed handgun permit and if you ever have to face the need to use your gun against another human being. The shooting portion of the course is very intense. He runs you through several drills starting with the basics and adding bits and pieces as the weekend progresses until you can put it all together and see the big picture at the end. It definitely improved my shooting skills and I still have a long way to go! I highly recommend that anyone who owns a gun and plans to carry it take this course whether you are a beginner or a “seasoned” shooter. Everyone takes something away from this course.”
