Years of experience as a SWAT operator and sniper-team leader taught Paul Warren—owner of Safe Side Tactical—a thing or two about safe firearm use. But Warren didn't think it was enough. So, he added the following to his already impressive resume: police firearms instructor, NRA basic pistol instructor, Illinois conceal carry instructor, and Utah-certified concealed-carry instructor, just to name a few. It's no surprise that he puts experience before all else in culling his talented crew of licensed instructors, most of whom are current police officers or former members of the military. What may come as a surprise, however, is that with all this expertise behind them, their favorite part of their jobs is teaching inexperienced students how to properly operate a firearm for the first time.
