John Farnam talks about Never Unarmed

We spoke to world-renowned firearms expert John Farnam about our new DVD, Never Unarmed

John Farnam, a Police Officer and decorated Vietnam veteran, is one of the top defensive firearms instructors in the nation.
A Senior Board member of the Armed Citizens Legal Defense Network and author of dozens of magazine articles and numerous books, he has personally trained thousands of federal, state and local law enforcement agency personnel, private security agencies, and hundred of civilians in safe gun handling and the tactical use of the defensive firearms.
In June of 1996, he was selected by his peers to receive the renowned "Tactical Advocate of the Year" award from the National Tactical Association.
In April of 2009, he was inducted into Black Belt Magazine’s “Living Legends”
His books, The Farnam Method of Defensive Handgunning, The Farnam Method of Defensive Rifle and Shotgun Shooting and Guns and Warriors Volume One have become the standard texts on the subjects.

I sat and watched the whole of Never Unarmed. It's a massive series! It took me about a week! (laughs) I really enjoyed it!

I know not everyone is going to love it, there's some really controversial stuff in there but I liked it a lot.
I like Lynn's passion for what he does.
I was really interested in the “walking the rounds into the target” section [NB: this technique is taught in several sections including service pistols]. I'm not sure where Lynn got this from but it made me think.
It might not sit well with some people, it's controversial to say the least – but he makes a really good point! I'm looking forward to exploring this in my own training.

Lynn is a good friend of mine and I've already learned so much from him regarding the use of knives and tomahawks. With Never Unarmed he makes some truly excellent points and he talks about things I just had never considered. For example I don't even own an airgun, but after watching these DVDs I'm really thinking about them a lot.
Never Unarmed is all about finding a way to win when things look bleak and I can really get behind that way of thinking. I like it!

This DVD series has inspired me and informed my own training. After watching it, I said to myself “I need to share this with my students”.
Not only does Lynn make the best products in the world but he is a truly original thinker. He's not afraid to try new things, to experiment and learn. He's willing to take all the risks!
People talk about doing things, but Lynn just does them! He is a modern American hero!
Lynn is a really inspiring guy. I'm a lifelong customer, but I also consider myself a student.
I'll be sharing Never Unarmed with all my friends.
