We want to make sure everyone that comes to us, leaves comfortable with the knowledge, skills and attitude of the firearm they are going to be using. We use the training from our military and law enforcement backgrounds along with our personal experiences to ensure you achieve the maximum experience and knowledge. If you have a question and we don't know the answer, we will find the answer for you, firearms are our passion and we want everyone to have the same experiences as they get into this wonderful hobby whether it be for competition, backyard shooting or person protection. We conduct our classes in one of two ways:
Either way, we will provide the same information and qualifications as the private or small group classes.
Our class will give you all the necessary information to properly load, unload, clean, fire your firearm, and more. We find that a Crawl, Walk, Run Phase approach works best. Starting with some basic knowledge and unloaded firearms handling to get familiarized with your individual firearm for the Crawl Phase. For the Walk Phase we will work with your own firearm or the Shot Indicating Resetting Trigger (SIRT) Training Pistols. These will simulate shooting a firearm to assess proper shooting fundamentals. Finally for the Run Phase, we will do live fire shooting and qualification. We have a Bullseye Camera System which will give you real time view of your shots on the target for scenarios that would require it. This allows for on-the-spot corrections to be made and saves time from having to move up and down the range.
At the end of the day, you will have an amazing and memorable experience to take home with you along with all the required skills and knowledge for the class that you are participating in. We like to remain as a point of contact after the class so if at any time in the future you have questions or concerns, they can be addressed. We also hope to gain your repeat business when it comes to buying, selling, transferring and any other firearms needs that might arise.
