Meet Your Instructors
My name is Shawn Crowl, Owner of Prime Defense Firearms Training LLC. My passion for shooting and firearms began at a young age. I grew up in a family of hunters, gun enthusiasts and 2nd amendment supporters so I have been exposed to guns my whole life. I started shooting when I was old enough to understand firearm safety. Target shooting quickly became one of my favorite hobbies. I received my CPL when I was 21 years old and continued training.
I obtained my instructor rating from the USCCA because of my passion for training, education and the 2nd amendment. The more citizens that are trained and educated about firearms will make the world a safer place for future generations. Prime Defense Firearms Training LLC offers a hands on stress free learning environment for all experience levels.

My name is Jerry Crowl. I have been around firearms my whole life. My Dad was an avid trap shooter and hunter. He shot trap every Friday night at the local sportsman’s club and at least one Sunday a month on a league. From the time I was old enough I would help him reload hundreds of shells every week and started shooting trap at around 12 years old.
At 19 I joined the Navy and worked as an Aviation Ordnanceman working with all sorts of aircraft armament including guns, bombs, rockets, missiles etc.
After my Naval service I joined a Volunteer Fire Dept and spent 13 years with them. During those 13 years I also got my Paramedic Certification.
I also spent 12 years as a volunteer for the Coast Guard Auxiliary and for the last 11 years I have been a reserve deputy for a local Sheriff’s department working on the water in the Marine Division.
As a veteran and someone who has served in all 3 of the public services, I love this country and fully support the Constitution. I truly love to educate others and spread my knowledge.
