Ruthann warned me this would happen. Put up a few posts about a few of her instructor's Refuse To Be A Victim® classes and the others would start crawling out of the woodwork. Isn't it great when a plan comes together?
So who do we have here? That would be Patrick Fuller and students from one of his Refuse seminars. You might think this class is small, and some are, but there is great significance in what Patrick is doing. Not only is he spreading the ever valuable personal safety strategy word, but he's doing it in an important place — New York City.
In fact, Patrick's classes are the first of their kind to be taught in the Big Apple since 2005. Right there on 5th and 20th at the Westside Pistol and Rifle Range. Pretty significant, aye?
Another interesting piece of trivia about Patrick relates to HIS instructor. None other then Gun for Hire's Anthony Colandro. Anthony has long been an NRA instructor in a wide variety of NRA disciplines. He teaches, his wife Pilar teaches, his friends and family teaches at one of their four Gun for Hire locations. And in his spare time, Anthony has played host for Gun for Hire Radio and two record setting New Jersey Friends of NRA Banquets.
I'd say Patrick couldn't have made a better choice when choosing his instructor. So far, he's doing a bang up job with all that Anthony and the NRA has taught him.
