The name “Donadio” is becoming a household name for those seeking who to go to for firearms training in Maryland. After protecting Presidents Bush and Obama, he moved into the private sector and opened his own private security firm called Public Security LLC. In addition to providing bodyguards and armed security, his firm teaches citizens how to use firearms for self-defense. He has become a major provider of the 4 hour pistol classes for those seeking their Maryland Handgun Qualification License (HQL) in Queen Anne’s County, Maryland and the Eastern shore. Donadio adds a nice touch for every client by sharing his cell number (202–631–1153) in case they ever have any questions during the process of obtaining their license. He does caution callers that his phone sometimes gets overwhelmed with calls. Be sure to leave a message if he doesn’t answer. He returns every call. He is also very responsive through emails.
Donadio said; “We have had a huge increase of women seeking handgun training for self-defense in 2021. We have been working with scores of women to get them legally armed and lowering their risk to become a target an victim of crimes”
