The mission of King 33 is to enhance the personal safety aspect of our environment through providing a practical foundation of professional training and knowledge by with and through our certified, experience and insured instructors and all courses offered.
Provide people with the knowledge and skills to be an asset to themselves and the communities in which they live by being more knowledgeable in the respect of individual and group responsibility of our own safety.
King33 offers courses that are not found in the normal training curriculum of most tactical and private training environments. Based on the progressive approach to training by building upon previous experiences. King 33 can offer private and/or customized training to fit any customer desire or interest from the most basic one on one pistol shooting and coaching to understanding the forensic effects of firearms design and intent.
The design of King33 LLC is modular instruction coupling together live fire and simunitions training, training, teaching, classroom and range with live fire, before going on to sims for 360 degree reality based training, personal, home and regular carry training. Basic through advanced training with live fire and simunitions to custom and private training available.
History of King33
King 33 training was started by Chris Fields in August of 2011 as a means to train private citizens, private companies and government agencies/personnel in firearms training and techniques from the beginner shooter to the experienced operator.
“With years of research on the New England area and finding no one company or accumulative companies to offer the levels and diversity of training that I was looking for to maintain certain skill levels I started my own company and sought out other companies and instructors to align a program that NE has never before seen.” CF
Chris is an US Army Special Operations veteran including several deployments in hostile environments and over seas assignments both in uniform and as a private contractor, after which he returned to be an instructor for the SF qualification course. As a Green Beret he attended numerous tactical shooting schools including Special Forces Sniper School to develop and strengthen the foundation of an effective trainer. The instruction and classes offered through King 33 are derived from real life experiences that directly correlate to our daily lives as private citizens here in these great United States of America!

“MASTER THE BASICS”
King33 will start by developing your foundation of effective situational awareness skills in today’s environment working with you on the basic techniques of understanding your capabilities in various environments. Once these basic building blocks are established we will start adding to make you able to better understand how to consciously get through a potentially compromising situation.
Our training is not geared around specifically improving your competition shooting, nor is the training geared exclusively towards a combat mindset. By teaching you the tools and techniques which will allow you to be a master of the basics you will be able to employ those techniques in whatever setting you may need to.
King 33’s exclusive access to a number of varied training environments will allow you to tailor your training from the master instructors to your specific needs. Whether those courses are geared towards protection of self and family as responsible law-abiding citizens or employing your defensive tools in defense of yourself or others.
By providing a full curriculum from the most basic foundation concepts and rolling them up to the most complex custom-built courses you will be able to hone your skills and reduce “training scars” that develop due to lack of professional training.
You don’t need to be a gun owner to benefit from the training King 33 has to offer. By guiding our clients to adopt a situational awareness mindset they will be empowered to protect themselves by creating additional awareness for themselves of their surroundings. Each clients’ personal safety net will be expanded as a result of their awareness of the potential risks surrounding them due to the lessons learned from King 33. In today’s political and socio-economic climate there is more of a desire than ever for all citizens, with firearms or without, to be armed with the knowledge to keep themselves and their families’ safe in any situation. The King 33 objective is to provide preparedness to our clients without fear mongering or creating paranoia in a similar path to the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign introduced by the Department of Homeland Security in July 2010.
Further to the defensive minded training being offered to qualified armed and unarmed citizens we will also provide training for the local law enforcement organizations who are charged with protecting us every day in order to help make them more effective in their roles and keep them as safe as possible. The unique expertise brought by King 33 and any other qualified instructors will enable more realistic training for law enforcement personnel through the Simunition® systems. This includes both direct training alongside law enforcement trainers as well as providing a knowledgeable and effective ‘opposition force’ for law enforcement professionals to practice against.
King 33 Training will provide a suite of defensive firearms training for citizens concerned with the safety of their families and themselves who choose to own and implement them into their defense plan. This will be accomplished through live fire training on approved ranges with the most common home and self-defense firearms such as pistols/revolvers, shotguns, and rifles. The courses will be iterative and start at the most basic level of firearms safety and awareness and only upon the completion of pre-requisite courses will clients be allowed to move on to the more complex shooting scenarios and situations through building blocks. This type of course offering ensures that each client is trained fully and appropriately, that the right skills and theories are being imparted on each client so they are getting the full value of Chris’ knowledge, and that the diversity of skills and backgrounds in each course remains within manageable limits.
King 33 is an approved provider of Simunition® based training in Connecticut and one of only few in the North East and our Training Center is the only one like it in the region. As such we are in a unique position to offer this realistic defensive training to private citizens, private companies and government agencies who would otherwise have little to no opportunity to be effectively trained and practiced in potentially life-threatening situations.
