About Me

The Origin Story

firearm safety class instructor James Dowler

James Dowler

While living in Massachusetts, I worked at Smith & Wesson and as an armed guard. I also worked as a Range Safety Officer in Clearwater before I started my firearm safety business in Palm Harbor, Florida.

I feel strongly that anyone who owns a gun should know how to use it safely, responsibly, and with confidence. Training and education are key to owning a gun.


I'm a NRA Certified Instructor. Over the last 35 years I have taken several hundred hours of firearms training with Smith & Wesson, the NRA, and other organizations.

I am James Dowler a NRA Certified Pistol Instructor and founder of Survival Fittest Pistol Courses. I offer courses in firearm safety that are designed to familiarize you with your firearms and all of their features, while also teaching you how to properly carry and accurately shoot your firearms.

Training and education are key to owning a gun! My education has spanned several hundred hours of training as mentioned above, including licenses and certifications. I continually take courses myself to grow my knowledge and expertise in new areas of firearms and firearms safety.
