Founder & Director
Tim has trained with Tactical Firearms Training Team and was fortunate to have studied under Sgt. Max Joseph & his Cadre of Marine Instructors. He later mastered all of his NRA disciplines and in 1992, created Civilian Arms Training Source. In the mid 2000s, he studied under Commander Paul Castle, the creator of Center Axis Relock. Tim has an undying commitment to his students and their God-given right to protect their life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
