Our Firearms program is designed to provide basic, intermediate, and advanced level skills for the defensive use of firearms. It includes courses ranging from a 12-hour course for a concealed handgun permit (ACHP), to an intense two-day course with the pistol, rifle, or shotgun- and everything in between.

Any of our courses can be modified to fit a particular group or organization’s needs. If you have at least 10 people willing to train, we can do a “closed course” training in the subjects you wish. For further information on closed/private courses please email
