Allen Nelson

I am Allen Nelson, Owner and Founder of A&R Firearms Training. I am a Christian AMERICAN with a strong support for the 2nd Amendment. I am also a former Law Enforcement Officer with the State of Mississippi serving for 12 years. .I have also served in the private security sector in various roles.  I have numerous Instructor Certifications through the NRA and continue to gain more as it is my passion to teach skills needed to defend oneself from an assailant whether inside the home or outside the home.

During my tenure as a POST Certified LEO in the State of MS., I worked in all phases of uniform patrol to include: Responding to citizens calls for service, traffic and accident enforcement/investigation, investigated Citizen complaints and conducted numerous undercover operations.  I also served in an investigative role investigating criminal activities following trail of evidence to apprehend and prosecute criminals.

As a Private Security Professional I gained experience in the following areas:  Oversee and direct the physical security operations for multiple high-value client sites which included packaging, distribution and warehouse environments as well as retail establishments., Provided personnel administration and mentorship to multiple security personnel on multiple sites., established and provided site specific training training for assigned personnel according to client needs., served as a consultant to clients, conducting continued audits and evaluations of physical and technological security programs., developed customer specific policy and procedures for internal as well as external security operations., and conducted or assisted in investigations of property loss, theft or unlawful activities for all clients.

All of the Instructors with A & R Firearms Training have been a part of my Law enforcement or Private sector security teams and we have formed a bond and I can personally vouch for their skill sets and experience.
