Evolution Security Podcast

Jul 12, 2023

Throwback Episode to our second show with Tom Givens, originally Ep. 40.


As promised new Tactical Twin (Davis Twins) music at the beginning!  Let us know what you think.

This episode we have legendary firearms instructor Tom Givens back on the show.  This is an AAR based on Eric's experience taking the Rangemaster Instructor Development and Certification Class in Casa Grande AZ hosted by Cecil Burch of Immediate Action Combatives.  Tom is a 25 year law enforcement veteran, has been teaching firearms in some fashion since the 1970s, and has been teaching full time for 24 years. He is a prolific author with 6 books and 100s of magazine articles for the industry leading magazines, and is a highly successful competitive shooter.  Tom was also one of the founders of the International Defense Pistol Association (IDPA).  He teaches how to shoot effective but also how to defend yourself with the mindset that it is not the odds its the stakes.  In this episode, Tom's lecture on violent crime statistics alone may save peoples lives by helping them understand that you have a much higher chance then the mainstream would have you believe.   In addition, Tom has had over 65 students defend themselves successfully with a firearm, as he says, that is a demonstrable set of evidence all of us can learn from.
