The Father & Daughter Team behind Self Defense Guns
Since George Flynn passed away unexpectedly in April 2011,
his daughter Valerie Flynn has been continuing on his teaching tradition.

George Flynn
NRA Instructor & Actor / Filmmaker
April 22, 1950 - April 13, 2011

    George Flynn held multiple NRA Instructor Certificates and was also listed as a Concealed Carry Permit Instructor with the State of Wyoming and Florida.

    For over 40 years, Mr. Flynn had been both professionally and personally involved in the Shooting Sports.  He’d been an avid competitive shooter in disciplines such as Combat Pistol, ICORE, Cowboy Action, Skeet, as well as other sports.  

    He also enjoyed hunting, collecting, and writing on firearms & related topics.  He had published and/or produced several books & videos on Firearms, Shooter Training, Concealed Carry and African Safari.

    His book & video “Guns for Women(released in 1988) reached and helped thousands of people, and also changed the minds and positions of many individuals who were not previously supportive of firearm ownership.  It's important to note that the Book & Video were the direct inspiration for the President of Smith & Wesson to reintroduce the “Lady Smith” line of handguns.

    “Guns for Women” was a natural outgrowth of his excellent reputation for helping new shooters buy their first firearm and begin to enjoy the shooting sports.

    He served on the Board of Directors of the Weld County Fish & Wildlife Association  and was currently serving on the Board of the Colorado Friends of the NRA.

    George was an award winning Actor, Writer & Director as well as the host of the "Words of Freedom" Radio Show.

    In recent years, he’s served as Screenwriter and Co-Producer on the Motion Picture "Set Apart" starring Richard Roundtree, (Shaft & Speed Racer) John Schneider, (Dukes of Hazzard & Smallville) and Jennifer O'Neill, (Rio Lobo & Summer of ‘42).

    He was also one of the Producers on “Tengu: The Immortal Blade”, a Sci-Fi/Action Motion Picture, starring  James Lew, (Kung Fu & Inception), & Louis Mandylor (My Big Fat Greek Wedding & CSI).
