To provide quality pistol training for Louisiana Concealed Handgun Permit applicants or anyone else interested in learning to use a firearm properly and safely.

PaciFIST Firearms strives to create an accessible, welcoming, informative, safe, and fun training environment for anyone, even if you’ve never touched a gun before. Firearm training can be intimidating, especially for new shooters, but it doesn’t have to be. Some instructors with military or law enforcement backgrounds train like drill sergeants or have a condescending attitude toward civilian shooters, which can create a disincentive for people from seeking as much training as they should. However, we believe that a positive, accepting, and engaging training environment not only fosters better learning, but also encourages greater involvement in the shooting sports and better, more knowledgeable and responsible gun owners.

About the Instructor

NRA Certified Instructor and licensed Louisiana Attorney Everett Baudean decided to become a Concealed Handgun Permit Instructor after finding his own permit training to be less than adequate, and hearing of others leaving their own courses confused about certain things. There are many legal issues involved in carrying a concealed handgun in Louisiana, and many permit holders (and even instructors) don’t understand them as well as they should. In the defense of other instructors, however, many legal issues surrounding concealed handguns are confusing, many questions do remain unanswered, and it isn’t even very clear that the Louisiana Legislature understands what is in their own laws!

I have been shooting guns regularly since 2004, handloading my own ammunition since 2006, and have been licensed to carry since 2007. Firearms and firearm rights are truly one of my passions, and I love helping others learn, and learning new things myself!

I do a lot of work on gun law in the Louisiana Legislature with the Louisiana Shooting Association, in which I serve as a board member. I am further a volunteer instructor with Red Stick Pink Pistols and Operation Blazing Sword.
