About the instructor:

The author of over 5,000 magazine articles, columns and multiple books on weapons & tactics, Chuck Taylor is an Adjunct Professor Of Police Science, Court-Recognized Expert Witness and the first 4-Weapon Combat Master. A qualified parachutist and decorated Vietnam Veteran who served two combat tours in that conflict, he is both Airborne and Ranger qualified, with additional expertise in SWAT and Counter-Terrorist Operations.


As the founder/director of The American Small Arms Academy, Taylor has been involved in the training of tactical and security personnel of a number of both well-known and covert military & police special-operations units. His contributions to the field of combat handgunning are numerous, far-reaching and widely copied. Among his accomplishments in this area are the creation of the Tactical Reload, proven-superior methods of Malfunction Clearing, Multiple Target Engagement and Responses to the left and rear, shooting while moving and the adaptation of the Speed Rock and Stepback into highly effective close-range emergency response procedures.

A sometimes controversial innovator with an unflinching commitment to results, Taylor's techniques are credited with saving the lives of hundreds of law-enforcement officers, military personnel and civilians alike. In fact, as students, many of his professional colleagues learned much of what they know from Taylor. As the Director of The American Small Arms Academy, Taylor can be found either in the field training or conducting research in pursuit of his lifelong goal -- saving lives by advancing the state-of-the-art of combat weaponcraft.
