Firearms Training FAQs

 

Q: What if I am a total Novice and do not have a gun?
A: Handgun Rental is included in the cost of our Introduction to Handgun Course and Florida Concealed Weapon or Firearm License Course. We have a small range of firearms and equipment for rent for many of our other classes as well for a small fee. Please indicate when booking if you will require a rental firearm for any class either than these two.


Q: Will I receive a certificate?
A: Yes you will get a certificate of completion for each class you successfully complete.

Q: Do I really need formal training?
A: Knowing how to shoot is not the same as knowing how to fight with a firearm. Shooting skills are only one aspect of a gunfight. We teach everything from basic shooting skills to tactical training, such as understanding how distance, time, and environmental factors etc affect the outcome. The gun itself will not win the fight, the best trained individual will.  

Q: Which Gun should I bring?
A: You will be doing a LOT of shooting. In the most basic of our courses, most students will fire at least 100 rounds of ammunition in a dynamic environment. Our suggestion is to bring the gun that you are:
1. Most likely to carry.
2. Will stand up to continued use. 
3. You stand the best chance of shooting well with.

Q: May I use a firearm with a .22 cal conversion kit in your classes?
A: The cost of the ammunition consumed during training can be greatly reduced by converting your chosen firearm (handgun or rifle) to .22 cal. Although we recommend you train with the same caliber ammunition you will carry for defense, we have no objections to students using .22 cal conversion kits in our classes.

Q: I’m in Law Enforcement; can I train in my duty gear?
A: Of course.  We recommend that you train however you carry, so if you are in law enforcement we encourage you to train in your duty gear. 

Q: Do you allow spectators at your classes?
A: Yes we do. The cost is the same as participation. Our stock in trade is our time and our knowledge.

Q: Will you hold a class without a deposit or method of guarantee?
A: No. Unfortunately due to willful abuse in the past, we cannot reserve a space for anyone who is not willing to provide a credit card to guarantee their booking or prepay in full at the time of sign up. 

Q: What if I cannot make the class?
A: The Cancellation and No-Show Policies for your class are outlined in the Course Details and in your Registration Confirmation Email. If you have further questions, contact us.
