While our gun ranges are open to the public our main focus is training. Our company provides a number of firearms training and education courses to individuals who wish to learn how to safely and effectively use firearms. Our training courses are designed for people of different skill levels, from beginners to advanced shooters.

We offer a number of specialized courses for advanced shooters, law enforcement and military personnel, as well as self-defense courses for civilians. These courses are designed to teach individuals how to use firearms in high-pressure situations and  focus on tactics and strategies for responding to threats.

We prioritize safety and provide a safe and controlled environment for individuals to practice shooting. Our certified instructors work with students to teach them proper gun handling techniques, marksmanship, and gun safety. Additionally, all of our instructors are certified range safety officers to ensure that all shooters follow proper safety procedures.


Basic firearms courses are designed to teach beginners the fundamental skills and knowledge required to handle firearms safely and competently. These courses cover topics such as firearm safety rules, firearms terminology, firearm components, ammunition types, shooting stances, sight alignment, and trigger control. These courses will include range time, where students get hands-on experience shooting firearms under the supervision of a trained instructor.

Advanced firearms courses are intended for experienced gun owners who want to enhance their skills and knowledge beyond the basics. These courses cover more advanced shooting concepts and techniques, such as shooting while moving, shooting from different positions, shooting at moving targets, and shooting under stress. They also cover tactics and the warrior mindset. 

Both our basic and advanced firearms courses are taught by experienced instructors who are knowledgeable in firearm safety and operation. Students in both types of classes should expect to spend a significant amount of time learning about the importance of firearm safety and the potential consequences of mishandling a firearm.
