John Bebirian is a highly skilled and educated Firearms Instructor with a unique ability to provide students, both skilled and novice, with a relaxing and enjoyable learning experience. His slapstick humor and ability to put people at ease has served him well over the past 30 years; first as a licensed Recovery Agent and then as an Firearms Instructor for the States of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina (SLED CWP Instructor).
Additionally, John is a Nevada P.O.S.T. Law Enforcement Firearms Instructor – Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun – and certified for Nevada PILB and HR218. John is an NRA Life Member and has NRA certifications in too many things to list on a business card (unless you turn it sideways).
He continues his learning at UNLV and CSN, and by taking DHS and OBP courses relating to Bombing Prevention and Active Shooter response. He is a member of IALEFI, GALEFI, ILEETA and the National Sheriff’s association. He is a dog lover, and his support for several Great Pyrenees Rescue associations has added 3 members to his family; his Great Pyreneeses (sp?) Tango, Kash and Ronan.
He teaches our CCWs and GVR Tactical classes, and often lends his expertise to the GVR Ladies Chat and Shoot Meetups. He is available to rent by the hour. He can shoot a playing card in half.
As of October 2018, John was recognized by the National Sheriff’s Association as a Certified Homeland Protection Professional.
