Aaron Pelouze enjoys many outdoor actives: hiking, skiing, competitive shooting, small game hutting, but teaching is his passion. As an entrepreneur, he is more often than not out meeting people. Being out in public personal safety is a top priority.

Having limited knowledge of firearms, he realized the need for quality training. The seed was planted after attending
Gunsite 250 basic pistol class in 2006. Looking for local training opportunities, he found less than stellar classes. Many did not teach the skills needed to avoid or even defend against a violent attack. Combine this with his passion for teaching Vista Defense Training was born.

With over 450 hours of training and 16 years of concealed carry experience, Aaron brings a wealth of knowledge to his clients. Working in the private security arena, he applies the vast majority of skills the concealed carry holder would use. Adding in the defensive classes, competitive shooting, competition class and hunting has made him a more well-rounded instructor/coach.

Every law-abiding citizen should have access to quality training that may one day save their life.
