SDI Self Defense Initiatives
John Caile - Certified Firearms InstructorSelf Defense is never simple – 85% of self-defense claims fail. Most of these victims were nice people - they just didn't understand the realities of the criminal justice system. I will teach you what you need to know to help you survive, not just physically, but legally. You will learn how Police, prosecutors, judges, and juries operate, and what YOU can do to increase your chances of staying out of prison. John Caile is one of Minnesota’s top firearm instructors. He has trained civilian, military, and law enforcement personnel. He is NRA Certified in Pistol, Rifle, Shotgun, Home Firearm Safety, and Personal Protection in the Home. He has over 40 years of handgun experience, and provides “real world” training as advocated by world-renowned self-defense experts like Rex Applegate, Jeff Cooper, and others. John is also one of the few civilian instructors who have been involved in actual defensive gun uses. John is Communications Director for Concealed Carry Reform, NOW! (CCRN), the gun rights organization responsible for passing Minnesota’s “shall-issue” carry permit law, and he continues to defend gun owner’s rights at all levels. As Executive Director of the Society for the Advancement of Firearm Education, John advocates for affordable firearms instruction for current and retired Military personnel, battered women, and the poor. He is a regular guest on Local and National Talk Radio, Network and Public Television, and is often published in the Minnesota press.
