Train How You Fight, Fight How You Train

To those who take owning or carrying a gun seriously, there is no substitute for professional training. Our courses cover a variety of topics from basic firearm safety, handling, defensive shooting and tactics to advanced tactical weapons training. Our instructors are dedicated to developing cutting edge defensive firearm skills and passing those skills on to our students. Our belief is that every man is personally responsible for his own destiny; and trained with the ability to defend himself, can make a difference in the lives of others.

How We Train

Simply put, “train the way you will fight!” Fighting with a gun is not the same as static paper punching at your local shooting range.  We teach techniques and drills that includes both live fire and defensive tactics. Whether it is fighting with a gun, knife, stick, keys or ballpoint pen, our courses will train you to use the weapon of opportunity to survive close-quarter, life or death altercations. Take the skills you learn and train regularly, practice often, be open to learn at every opportunity. The skills you learn ARE perishable. Remember…..history and statistics prove that as you practice, so shall you perform!

Tactical and Advanced Defensive courses are effectively teaching a person to use firearms or other weapons to defend yourself and possibly others, so this should not be compared with any of the shooting sports. Tactical shooting and sport shooting are NOT the same. Sport shooting is a great training aid for speed sighting and trigger control; it is not a substitute for real training. Our tactical courses cover safe gun handling, loading / reloading, malfunctions, drawing, tactics, and movement in the controlled use of deadly force.
