In 2013, Derek LeBlanc encountered an intruder to his personal property. Through quick thinking, he was able to secure the situation and hold the intruder until police officers arrived.

That incident led to the creation of Lethal Lovebirds, LLC, and its goal to train and empower others through preparation, self-protection, and self-reliance.

Lethal Lovebirds, LLC, offers instruction throughout Oregon in firearms training and skill building, women’s only firearm training, and concealed carry (Oregon and Utah).
