Tactical Firearms Training

Handgun - Carbine - Shotgun
Precision Rifle - CCW

Our primary mission is to teach the safe and effective use of firearms.  
All manner of classes are offered to civilians
as well as law enforcement and government employees.




It is an unfortunate fact life in today’s world brings with it a constant reminder that we live in a society plagued with anger, hostility and violence.


Not a single day goes by where someone does not die at the hands of another. To believe we will never witness such tragedy, that violence only happens elsewhere, is living under false belief.

Our duty is to prepare for not if that day will come, but for when it does. Vigilance and preparedness are an obligation to life in modern society.
