We had the good fortune of connecting with Dave Turley and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dave, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
We wanted to be able to provide Training and awareness for people to become more capable in terms of being able to help other’s in the event of a crisis or emergency.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I was fortunate to receive a lot of training and experience during my 30 years in law enforcement and I wanted to give back by sharing some of those skills with good responsible people who want to protect what they hold dear.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We recently did have a friend from back east come out for a week of training. We live in the westvalley so we recommended the Wigwam for a memorable experience. Then out to our home range at Cowtown in Peoria for firearms safety training in the beautiful desert Near Lake Pleasant. Students came from all over the and shared their stories so that was awesome. Evenings are a great chance to check out some of local restaurants, like Cantina Gueros for tacos and a mango margaritas! The Westvalley has so many great attractions, like Verrado, Litchfield Park, and if it gets too hot, Prescott, or Sedona are only an hour north.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My wife Dianna is my partner and best friend. We are on this journey together and she helps with everything from scheduling to purchasing and keeping me on track. My Daughter Lexie manages our social media and we couldn’t manage without her help. I’m blessed to have amazing instructors that help with classes and keep us well staffed so clients get one on attention and feel safe at all times.
