FPF Training is headed by John Murphy. John has been teaching law abiding citizens how to responsibly and legally defend themselves from armed criminals in the Northern Virginia area for more than a decade. John has put together an outstanding curriculum that teaches citizens how criminals operate, how to avoid them if at all possible, and how to successfully stop a threat when left with no other choice. In recent years John has expanded his reach across the country.

In addition to his excellent curriculum on concealed carry and lawful self defense with a pistol, John’s Minuteman Rifle course serves to build a solid basis of skill and knowledge on how to competently use the modern defensive rifle. If you have never had formal training on the modern defensive rifle we highly recommend John’s Minuteman Rifle as a precursor to taking our own Defensive Rifle and Variable Power Optic classes.

FPF Training also presents high quality defensive shotgun material in concert with JDC Instructor Tim Chandler. FPF’s Home Defense Shotgun and Shotgun Skills presentations have received excellent reviews from clients and serve as a great preparation for taking our Defensive Shotgun Skills program.

In addition, FPF Training routinely hosts some of the best firearms instructors working in the United States. Tom Givens, Massad Ayoob, William Aprill, Paul Sharp, Greg Ellifritz, Cecil Burch, Chuck Haggard, and other top quality instructors have been hosted by FPF Training in the past and will likely make more appearances in the future.

JDC’s instructor cadre is highly accomplished and extremely knowledgeable, but we don’t claim to know it all. We strongly encourage our clients to train with other accomplished, knowledgeable instructors like John and the people he hosts at FPF Training.
