Our teaching philosophy is simple. Treat every student with respect and dignity. Create an environment where learning is easy to understand and fun. Carrying a gun is a way of life, not a hobby.

You will learn how to: Draw your gun, Fire and hit the target twice in less than 1.5 seconds, Survive a violent confrontation, Conceal your gun. All concealment types will be discussed; hip-holster, inside the parts, small of the back, cross draw, shoulder holsters, fanny packs, ankle holsters and women’s purses. Eye and ear protection are required. 300 rounds per class. 3 magazines with belt magazine holder. Class fee includes range time and targets
