ABOUT US

Our training background and philosophy.

Not all firearm instructors are created equal and that is why way back in early 2002 we started this training company. We bring you common sense, high quality and student friendly firearms training. Training needs to be relevant, recent and realistic and assist you to legally defend against death or great bodily harm when it is forced on you by criminals. We are constantly working to improve and update our curriculum, our knowledge and methods of helping our students learn how to effectively and efficiently protect themselves, their loved ones and when needed to protect perfect strangers in their hour of need.

We believe firearms instructors must continually be students elsewhere and train to be able to train others. Here is just part of what our lead instructor has done to become a better instructor:
