The Instructors with Bullseyes are hand picked. Each instructor has a specific talent that was needed for the team. Left handed shooter, large caliber expert, machinist, shotgun expert, prior military... Each instructor was recruited for their various skills in order to make a well rounded team. Each instructor regularly attends additional training to keep their skills top notch. Every instructor must pass the NRA Defensive Pistol qualifier yearly to stay current. NRA Defensive Pistol is the most advanced course the NRA has to offer and is the only course that is run with a timer for speed.

Bullseyes training consists of three prongs. First is the MINDSET. The determination to win. Survival is simply not good enough. The resolve to finish the confrontation or competition on your terms is desired. Second is TACTICS. Being able to win with the least amount of effort is the sign of proper planning. Putting yourself in the position of advantage can provide great psychological leverage or deter the event altogether. Third is the TOOLS. Not only tools but the skill with them. The gun in your holster is not a magic talisman that wards off all evil. The right tool (pistol, rifle, shotgun, taser, OC spray) and the proper training to use it most effectively is what we strive for. Any one of the three without the others still put you at a disadvantage. Any two of the three and you have a chance. When your life is on the line, you deserve more than a chance. With all three you are a defensive force that cries, "Find an easier target!"
