High-Quality Training In a Small Class Setting

We keep our classes small so that every student gets individual attention & assistance.


We Believe:

Everyone should at least know how to use a firearm safely & should have fun learning to use it.  Only then can you make a knowledgeable decision on whether a firearm is right for you in your plans for fun, college scholarships, or self-defense.

Every person & family should be prepared for the unexpected.  We should be able to feed, shelter, & take care of ourselves without having to rely on others.  This means having plans in place for natural emergencies or civil unrest.

Be safe...  Have FUN!
