Today we’re talking to Military Veteran Tim Chapman, who has used his knowledge to create a business that helps average Americans be better trained and educated in firearm use. That’s right, we’re talking about weapons today! Join us for a great chat about F-16’s, bombs, martial arts, the NRA, and other fun weapon stuff!

In his own words: Americans face the threat of violence every day, ranging from criminal assault to active-shooter events. Most are unprepared, unequipped, and untrained to respond to these threats effectively. Chapman Tactical Defense was founded to provide the best firearms and personal protection training available. Whether you have just purchased your first firearm and need basic training or if you are familiar with firearms and want to train at more advanced levels, Chapman Tactical Defense has the curriculum and instructors to meet your personal needs.

Chapman Tactical Defense’s mission is to educate and train law-abiding citizens, in the practical use of firearms and personal protection techniques, while instilling the social responsibilities required to be a responsible firearm owner. Our focus is on improving individual firearm skills, cognitive awareness of potential threats, and helping build the confidence of every student in the protection of themselves and their family.

This podcast is paid for and brought to you by…. by me, Scott Groves 🙂

Because I think these kind of long form conversations are valuable, I pay for 100% of the production of this show out of my pocket. This channel is FAR from monetization and because of the subject matter, may never be monetized.

I am a Mortgage Loan Officer & Loan Officer Coach in real life. It’s the money that I earn, from helping home-buyers and home-owners obtain home-loans, that pays for this show. If you, your friends, or your family are looking for a home loan from an honest Loan Officer, please contact me at [email protected]

I can do the loan for you (our team is licensed in 8 states) – OR – I can refer you to an amazing loan officer in the state where you’re searching. ON WITH THE SHOW!!!
