About Us

Welcome to Trace Armory Group!

 Hello there! We’re thrilled to have you here. Let us take a moment to introduce ourselves.

 At Trace Armory Group, we are the leaders in home defense training. Our passionate team is dedicated to empowering you with the knowledge and skills needed to protect yourself and your loved ones.

 Who I Am

I'm John Boyette, Owner and Lead Trainer at Trace Armory Group. With over twenty years of dedicated experience in self-defense training, particularly specializing in home defense tactics, I've had the honor of instructing over 1600 students since our establishment in 2010. My background as a US Army Airborne Infantryman, with extensive combat and peacekeeping operational experience spanning 22 months, informs my approach to instruction.

Presently, I serve as a full-time Armed Nuclear Security Officer, accumulating over seven years of invaluable experience. Additionally, I contribute to the Online Facility at SDI for the Gunsmithing Program. In this capacity, I lead two community college level classes: "Sights, Optics, and Accuracy" and "Shooting Sports Business Management." Through these courses, I impart unique insights and expertise garnered from my diverse background.

Each training session benefits from my comprehensive knowledge base and focused approach, ensuring that every student receives the highest quality instruction tailored to their individual needs.
