Progressive F.O.R.C.E. Concepts celebrates 15-year anniversary! 
PFC Class #1, Steve Krystek: bottom row, center.
It’s true, this November, PFC enters its 15th year in business.  Founded by Steve Krystek who started teaching firearms classes in the 90’s while stationed in San Antonio on Active Duty, Progressive F.O.R.C.E. Concepts was initially conceived as a delivery system for innovative training programs (F.O.R.C.E. being the acronym for “Force Options for Resolving Combative Encounters”).  Chief among these was PROTOCOM, or Progressive Total Combat, a system of interlocking tactics expressed through pistol, edged-weapon, and empty-hand fighting skills.

Over time the PFC curriculum expanded, the instructor team grew and PFC courses spread across the US and beyond.  Since the beginning, PFC Training has now reached 10,000 students through over 1,000 courses delivered to hundreds upon hundreds of military, law enforcement, security and private sector groups.  And over the years the business itself has grown into separate divisions encompassing protective operations, special projects, consulting and our CrossFit affiliate, Progressive FORCE CrossFit.

Much has happened since the early days at the Blackhawk Shooting Range in San Antonio, TX.  But PFC’s commitment to excellence, both in the quality of our services and our contribution to modern training doctrine remains our uppermost priority.  And to recognize our 15 year milestone and say “thank you” to those of you receiving and reading our monthly newsletters, we are offering a special anniversary promotion for all 2012 handgun & carbine courses.  Use discount code PFC15415to enroll in any 2012 Progressive Handgun or Progressive Carbine training course before January 1, 2012, and you will receive 15% off the course tuition.  You may enroll online or contact our office at or 702-647-1126.  Be sure to have the discount code ready!

New PFC Progressive Shooting Doctrine unleashed in 2012!

This is it, the latest evolution of our constantly-sharpened firearms programs. PFC has successfully combined our latest curriculum updates with a user-friendly delivery system.  This new approach will make it particularly convenient for our students who travel to train with us and those who have limited time and opportunities to attend courses.  Using a completely modular approach to critical shooting sub-topics, this instructional format will make it easier in 2012 for you to get, as well as maintain, the PFC edge.
