Many have asked, why would a doctor want to get into the business of teaching people how to shoot guns?


My simple response to that is, it brings me joy. I've been a gun enthusiast and licensed concealed carrier for the past 17 years.


I bought my first ever pistol as a college student for the purpose of self-protection. In the course of being a firearm owner, I discovered that just having a firearm does not make you safe.

AARON HAIRE owner of DOCs precision firearms training business based in South Carolina

Having a firearm means nothing if you lack skill, confidence, and self-discipline.


I have committed myself to regular training and pushing my firearms skills to better educate those in the community about firearm safety and proper firearm usage.


My greatest joy as an instructor is training people and watching the smiles that come on their faces as they gain confidence in their own abilities. Training begets confidence and confidence in a powerful thing!

Won't you let me be a part of your firearm training journey?



My experience was exceptional! I learned so much! I’m confident and I’m so ready to learn more! The entire learning experience was top notch! Awesome instructors: Aaron and Gary! They made learning fun! I highly recommend this place!

Screenshoot of Doc with a Glock podcast

The purpose of this radio show is to challenge the negative stereotypes associated with being a gun enthusiast, particularly for individuals who are black.


On this show, I cover a wide range of topics including guns and gear, gun safety, training, social issues, gun policy and laws, as well as related subjects.


Ultimately, I hope to highlight our shared experiences and bridge any divides that may exist between us.


So, please sit back, listen up, and join me for an engaging discussion.

  • Do you offer self- defense liability insurance?
    Yes. We promote and sell Firearms Legal Protection Liability Insurance. Firearms Legal Protection | The Best Legal Protection for Gun Owners!
  • What is the purpose of firearm liability insurance, why should I get it?
    You readily think to cover and protect yourself from financial loss with coverage offered by health, car, and life insurance but seldom do individuals think of the threat to finances and personal freedom/livelihood that can follow after a self-defense encounter. Firearm liability insurance is there to cover you on your worst day, when you have to use your firearm or defensive tool to protect the lives of yourself or other innocent parties. Insurance such as what we offer through Firearm Legal Protection affords you the following benefits…. -Legal representation with uncapped payment for fees of civil or criminal defense -Protection which extends to all weapons used in lawful self- defense. -Access to emergency 24/7 attorney answered hotline. - Access to Firearm Legal Protection Mobile App, packed with up-to-date laws and other tools and information that all firearms owners should have at their fingertips. -Access to digital content, online education, and discounts. - Protection in all 50 states - Bail bond coverage up to 250k - Payment of expert witness fees and cost of private investigators needed in your legal defense. - Payment of grief and psychological counseling. - Lost wage protection during the period of criminal or civil trial. - Payment for professional crime scene clean-up and payment for incident related firearm confiscation. - Coverage which extends to spouse and children 17 years of age and younger. With all these benefits and protections, it’s a no brainer. Call or email us today to register for a plan that meets your protection needs.

  • What is your refund policy?
    Due to the nature of firearm training which requires me to purchase training supplies/ammo and rent teaching space weeks in advance of a course I am unable to offer refunds. If for some reason you can’t make it to a class that you have paid for, I will gladly change you to a class date that better fits your schedule at no additional fee.

  • We see the focus of most of your training is pistol based, do you also offer rifle training?
    I am an NRA certified pistol and rifle instructor, however due to being in the early stages of development I want to get all pistol courses fully running efficiently before branching into rifle instruction. I will always focus on quality and safety of instruction over quantity of services. I hope to include rifle classes at some point toward the end of 2023. Follow us as the business grows for details on rifle class offerings. If you are in more immediate need of quality rifle training in SC please check out my friend and fellow instructor Mr. Chris Liles who runs "SC Gun School"

The student is able get visual feedback on their degree of accuracy, work on basic marksmanship principles, and get coached on general firearm handling safety from their instructor.
