 Aloha and Welcome to our 
afety And Firearms Education Website

Our goal is to prepare you for the incredible responsibility of gun ownership, whether you are a gun enthusiast or for personal protection.   

Some basic rules to follow:

1) Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction

2) Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot

3) Always keep your gun unloaded until ready to use

Welcome To S.A.F.E.


Thank you for visiting our website.  My name is Clifford, and I am the Chief Instructor/Owner of Safety And Firearms Education (S.A.F.E.) The years just go flying by as we all look forward to 2020. I am thankful for  the opportunity to teach people to be responsible firearms owners.  Thank you to all who have taken classes from S.A.F.E.  in the past. 

There are a variety of training courses to get you started in the shooting sport.  If you're already a gun owner, we have courses to enhance your knowledge and skills.  “Our goal is to prepare you for the incredible responsibility of gun ownership, whether you are a gun enthusiast or for personal protection.”  I take this goal very seriously.  I believe that Safety is first and foremost.  A person that understands and demonstrates safe gun handling behaviors but may not shoot good at the time can eventually be taught those skills.  A person that can shoot well but has unsafe or careless gun handling skills may eventually decide to bring friends to the range. We all know what this will lead to...  

Through the past years, I have had the great pleasure of teaching many students. All have gained knowledge and skills and more importantly, have the right attitude to be responsible firearms owners.  I too have learned from my students through their experiences and knowledge.  That is why I am now offering additional classes, customized for students who have a specific training need.  Some examples are our Fundamentals of Marksmanship Course, Shotgun Basics, AR-15 Basics, Revolver Basics and for new hunters, High Power Bolt Action Rifle Basics.  

 My classes are geared toward personalized instruction, hosting 1-6 students per class. I welcome and encourage friends, individuals, and even couples to experience the camaraderie only found in this small group setting. Most of our handgun live fire exercises are done at an indoor range for practical distances and realistic environments.  Rifle and Shotgun classes are done at an  outdoor range.

We can schedule weekday or weekend classes. We also offer classes to our friends on the Neighboring Islands.  Please call or e-mail me if you have any
 questions.  I hope you will consider signing up for a class in the near future.  See you soon…..Aloha
