PASSION & COMMITMENT
"I started Archangel Defense as a way to instruct people on the bodies mechanics and mindset when it comes to the use of a firearm and show them the difference between rights and responsibilities when it comes to training. I myself will always be a student first and instructor second. I continue training under different instructors and courses to bring the best I can for my students."
- Kerry Dugan Jr., Owner & Certified Firearms Instructor

"I can’t speak highly enough about Archangel Defense. Kerry and his team were extremely professional and dedicated the time to provide individual coaching and detailed instruction. I have taken so much away that I can work on that will continue to develop my skills, mindset and confidence. Thank you Kerry and Team! I look forward to training with you again soon."
- Derek N.
"Kerry is a fantastic instructor. Whether you are new to shooting or have been doing it for a while, he can teach you something new. I like that he will tailor the class (moving faster or slower through various concepts / content) based on the student skill level — this maximizes the value that you get for the time you are investing. I can’t recommend Kerry highly enough. I’ll be back for more."
