We partnered with Dewayne Goar of D-G Goar Inc. to provide instruction for our many available classes. Mr. Goar has 20 years serving in the Ruidoso Police Department where he commanded the Special Response Team (SRT) for Ruidoso. He retired as Deputy Chief of the force. He is a Colt AR-15, a Submachine gun (SMG) armorer, and certified Glock armor (fix and repair). During his career he served as a certified instructor in training Law Enforcement use of hand guns, rifles, and shot guns which he did for over 18 years. He has taught “Concealed Carry” classes in the State of New Mexico since 2004. He is well respected in our community and offers extensive knowledge that we consider very valuable to a variety of audiences and needs.
