MADISON, Wis., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On Monday the Department of Justice (DOJ) formally recognized the American Association of Certified Firearms Instructors (AACFI) as meeting the Wisconsin qualifying standards of a firearms training organization. Anyone who is planning to apply for their new Wisconsin weapons license can attend an AACFI class knowing the DOJ will accept this training.
Tim Grant, AACFI VP of Operations and Development, said, "We have been working closely with the DOJ since the passage of the new Wisconsin weapons law and we are pleased that our organization and our certified firearms instructors were so quickly recognized. We realize that many people have been waiting for this decision from the DOJ before making a commitment to go to a class. Your wait is officially over." Grant also added, "We will be in touch with our past Wisconsin course clients to be sure they have all the necessary documentation to make a successful application. Past AACFI Minnesota course clients will need to contact our office at 952-935-2414 for the necessary documentation, unless they have obtained their Minnesota or another states' permit."
AACFI has actively trained thousands of citizens who live in Wisconsin to responsibly carry lethal force since 2004. As an organization that specializes in training armed citizens, AACFI's curriculum exceeds the training requirements established by the Wisconsin legislature by instructing clients how to survive an attack physically, morally, legally and financially.
AACFI currently has over 30 active certified firearms instructors serving Wisconsin and is actively recruiting additional instructors. AACFI Wisconsin instructors can be found at www.aacfi.com by clicking the trainers' button.
