My Story.
 My Mission.

Motto: “P6: Prior Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance”

Mission Statement: P6 Firearms Training, LLC is committed to providing you with the best, most relevant firearms training available, in a safe, comfortable, and positive learning environment.

Training Philosophy: P6 Firearms Training, LLC is much more than a place to fulfill the State of Illinois’ requirement so you can apply for your Concealed Handgun License. My general philosophy is to be practical and relevant and to do what works. I try to give my students an understanding of what it might be like to use a firearm to defend their lives, and the skill set to do it effectively.


Your Senior Instructor: Markis Miranda is a Marine Corps veteran, NRA Law Enforcement Instructor, NRA Firearms Instructor, USCCA Concealed Carry & Home Defense Fundamentals – Training Counselor/Certified Instructor, Certified Advanced 360 CQD Instructor, NLEFIA Shoot House Instructor, and ASP Tactical Weapon Instructor. As an active duty Marine he was involved in countless, real world, tactical situations. After leaving the Military, his love for firearms instruction and training inspired him to begin teaching self-defense,civilian firearm classes, and subsequently, to create P6 Firearms Training, LLC.

When deciding where to train, just ask yourself one question. Do you want to learn how to pass a test or how to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones with a firearm?

Since we spend most of our waking hours outside of our homes, it is not surprising that most threats to our safety happen there. We are at our most vulnerable when outside of our homes, as we have little control over who we encounter when in public places.

Few criminals wish to get into a fight with the intended victim. When you resist and defend yourself, most criminals desist and try to flee before the lawful defender has even cleared the holster. Again, since the criminals can’t tell who is armed ahead of time, concealed carry affords a protective umbrella, even to those who go unarmed.

Because of the diligence with which law abiding citizens conceal their side arms, we seldom realize just how many Americans go about their daily lives armed and prepared. Unlike the victims of crimes, people who don’t become victims don’t appear in the news headlines.
