We understand that people come to us for a variety of reasons. Some come to us, already planning to get their permit, as they want to carry a firearm occasionally or even daily. Others come because they own a firearm for home protection and want to learn the legal considerations associated with defending themselves at home.  Or perhaps they want to learn how to legally transport their firearm to and from the range when they practice. Still others come because "learning to shoot is on their bucket list" and they have heard we're a good place to learn.

Regardless of the reason you are considering taking a Concealed Carry Course, we understand how important a safe, welcoming, non-judgmental environment in which to learn really is, so we have created a unique environment to support you every step of the way. We have proudly earned the reputation as the tri-state's most realistic self defense school.  Whether you are considering purchasing a firearm, or already have one as part of your defense plans, we will educate you on your rights and options.  We will equip you with the tools and techniques best suited to you and your situation.  We will work with you to determine the best training plan so that you can meet your personal, family, and home defense goals. 

 We make use of classroom instruction, skill development drills on the range, individualized coaching, and extensive Reality Based Scenario Training to ensure student understanding and practical application ability is achieved in a concise time period.  We also spend a significant amount of time ensuring you understand the legal responsibilities associated with defending yourself or a loved one with your firearm.
