Dan Coming back

I made it through a Cardiac Arrest and a Quad bypass. All of this happened the week we were sponsoring Mas Ayoob’s MAG 20. I am so proud of my instructors who stepped in to take my place during the past several months. I passed all the rehab stress tests with flying colors. The Doctors said that I will have the energy I had 10 years ago and I can feel it. I’ve been working out daily with a P T and my weight is down from 284 to 204 this morning. I will update this site completely during the next few days. Thank you.

Gator Farm Tactical authorized to give Mas Ayoob’s MAG 20 class

This is the Stressfire class which is the 20 required hours of handgun training done during the MAG 40 Class. Once several MAG 20 classes have been conducted we will bring Mas in to give 2 days of instruction in using Lethal Force. In a classroom he will give the legal aspects of a shooting. A student must complete both phases of the course in order to get the MAG 40 Certificate.
The MAG 40 class is $800. By dividing the course in half a student can pay $400. for the MAG 20 course and have several months to come up with the $400. for the Legal aspects of using lethal force.
We are confident that this will allow more ‘working’ folks and students to be able to afford the best course for self defense that exists.
