defense train

After you have learned basic handgun skills, gun safety rules, and perhaps even have your CHL/LTC license to carry, your next step toward responsible gun ownership and CONFIDENT CONCEALED CARRY is to develop and practice your DEFENSIVE GUN HANDLING SKILLS.

If you had to rely on your training, skills and weapon to defend yourself, would you be ready?

Learn to handle your gun safely and confidently in a defensive situation.  Private classes for individual or small group on-the-range training.

The fact is that most people freeze in an emergency situation, because they have not trained for an appropriate response. Things go wrong in a confrontation, your adrenaline eats all of your coordination, mechanical things break at the worst possible moment, and bad guys do not do what you want them to.

Target shooting, and basic gun skills are something every gun owner should be confident with. But defensive gun training is very different.

The paper target at your gun range is not shooting back at you. In a defensive emergency you must be able to respond perfectly in a split second. This requires planning, training, and skills.

Defensive gun handling skills require specific training and practice to become proficient. These things just cannot be learned in a classroom, online, or as part of a larger group. Our private training sessions will focus on what YOU need to know for YOUR specific life situations.
