Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Where is the program located? Is it all on-line?  Answer: Most of the content and activities are online. You can even ask questions during the webinars and calls.  Watch all the E3TV shows in real time.  We also have IN-PERSON special events throughout the country for members only.

Question: Who can be a member?  Answer: You must be a US or Canadian citizen to be a member of E3FA. 

Question: Can I just pay once and be done? No monthly payments? Answer: Yes on the thank you page after you buy your monthly subscription, you can upgrade to an annual membership.  Annual memberships also offer additional member discounts and bonuses bonuses shipped to you.  

Question:  What are the product discounts mentioned above? Answer: Depending on the level of your membership, in most cases we have been able to negotiate below MSRP offers from our contacts in the industry.  From holsters to grips to safes, ammunition and all related products. These deals CAN NOT be shared with non-members per our agreements with these manufacturers.  It must stay behind the membership firewall. 

Question:  What if I am not using all the benefits like live events or more?  Answer:  Most people never use every single benefit.  The great thing about E3 is that it's set up for you to consume the program in a way that makes sense for you.   Just utilizing a couple of the many benefits pays for your membership.  One month's discounts with partners could pay for your membership for years.

Question: Why is the program a monthly/yearly membership?  Answer: It never ends. E3 is extremely prolific and packed monthly with more and more content, shows, courses, experts, and activities.  E3 is not old or stale content.  There is a cost to produce this for you and we want to bring you new and better experiences every month. 

Question: Do I get access to Kris and Adam?  Answer: Yes, you do.  You can come to live calls to ask questions, live online events and also attend the live in person events throughout the year to meet and train with them personally. 

Question: What if I am not using the program much?  Answer:  You can pause or cancel the program at any time.  There is no contractual obligation to being a member.  You can also transfer your founder membership to a friend or family member. 

Question: What if I can't make it to live events?  Answer: no problem.  ALL the events are recorded and posted in your member area.  Also only a fraction of member benefits are live in-person events.  And... in most cases you can bring a guest or spouse to these events. 


Question: How can I contact you?

A: you can submit an email to [email protected] and a ticket will be submitted.

YES! You're in a judgment-free zone!

Moms, dads, professionals, agencies, military and more...  NO MATTER what level you are, or what your goals and objectives are in your firearms journey, you are in the right place.


No intimidation here... quite the opposite.  E3 wants to empower you to get better than you ever thought possible!

While expanding your knowledge, we want you to have FUN and engage with other E3 Members, consume all the courses, read the magazines and watch the entertainment - as well as participate at our Virtual and Live events! After all, we're a family!

A PERSONAL NOTE FROM E3 firearms association co-founder kris "TANTO" paronto

Welcome Present and Future E3 Firearms Association Member!

Kris Paronto here, some know me as “Tanto.”  I'm not only proud to be a founder of the E3 Firearms Association Team, but also to be co-partnering with Adam Painchaud (formerly of Sig Sauer Academy) to bring the ultimate in online and live experiences to the firearms community.

I’m also very excited and humbled to get to know you — PLUS to have the opportunity to train with you while enjoying the great outdoors together! Before we get started, let me provide a little background about myself.

  • I proudly served in the U.S. Army for approximately 8 years on active duty and with the Colorado Army National Guard.
  • I was blessed to have spent the majority of my military service within the Special Operations Community, first with the 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment and then with the 5th Battalion 19th Special Forces Group reaching the rank of Sgt. then becoming a Commissioned Officer.
  • I also attended and completed the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment’s Ranger Indoctrination Program, U.S. Army Ranger School, and U.S. Army Airborne School.

After being honorably discharged from the U.S. Army in 2003, I spent the next 10 years working as a private military contractor and firearms & tactics instructor for various agencies within the U.S Government.

Now, please understand, I just gave you a glimpse of my background not to impress you -- but to impress UPON you that my real-world experiences can help you reach your firearms training goals.

What 20 Years of Tactical Combat Training Has Taught Me …

… is that it is not only VITAL TO YOUR LIFE to make your firearms tactics second nature… but even more important to have the ability to read people and to have optimal situational awareness.

There’s no getting around it: Most fights can be avoided and even won before a shot is even fired.

How? By simply reading people’s mannerisms while remaining in control of your emotions. And yes, situational awareness can be learned through experience and through building confidence with thorough instruction.

Remember: Practice doesn’t make perfect – Perfect Practice does!

And that’s what your E3 Firearms Membership guarantees to provide you — with our 24/7 training — that works on your schedule!  E3 Association members are a huge family.  And you will absolutely love every minute of our elite training, talking, and being around Adam and myself as we share our over 40 years of experience with you.

OUR main goal is to NOT only teach and mentor you – but to keep you safe! As you are well aware of — firearms are inherently dangerous (regardless of your skill level). BUT Adam and myself — along with our outstanding, vetted E3 instructors will ensure we’re training you in a safe, fun environment. (And isn’t that what it’s all about?)

I want to bring the same “no ego” mindset to the E3 Firearms Members and the humor that comes along with confident, non-confrontational instruction. At the end of the day, we will all walk off the range with a grand sense of accomplishment, smiling from ear to ear, more confident in yourself and your capable abilities.

God Bless you all. On behalf of Adam and our team, it’s truly my honor to be a part of all your lives and to welcome you to our E3 Firearms Association Family!
