Fabio is a perfect example of what one civilian can do if he truly wants to become an elite Protector. One of the things I love about him the most is simply that he is a civilian who has chosen a path that has empowered him to perform at some of the highest levels in the game with regards to not only professional protection at times but also he also empowers others to become efficient protectors also.
People ask me all the time how they can begin learning how to use firearms and in these turbulent times, this question is all too relevant. I repeatedly send them to Fabio because not only does he perform at those levels that many of us simply just dream of achieving one day but he’s also an amazing instructor that understands firearms on so many levels that he’s able to meet people where they’re at and teach them very effectively.
He has experience learning and implementing these skills through competitions and an ocean of courses and therefore he understands what information out there is garbage and what actually works when it comes strictly to performance. In a world where there’s so much hype, theory and artificial tactics designed more as a marketing strategy than to empower the shooter to survive… Men like Fabio are so needed as leaders and instructors within the firearms community today. If you’ve just purchased a firearm please keep in mind that the firearm you’ve selected is way less important than the training you choose because that’s ultimately what will run that weapon and can save your life.
I cannot stress the importance of training enough. We have a saying in the personal protection game, “rookies spend money on hardware while professionals spend money on software“. My advice is for you to get involved in some of Fabio‘s training no matter where you’re at in your firearms skills because I guarantee there’s so much more left to learn that he will show you. Beyond all of these things Fabia was a close friend and someone at the table of my inner circle… There’s so much in this interview for everyone, enjoy.
