We know that so many of you are hungry to learn how to protect yourself the right way, but lack time, bullets and money to do so. This is a 2 1/2-hour down-and-dirty, just the bare minimum basics you will need to safely handle and use your handgun. We’ll cover Use of Force Laws and how to Safely Handle and Store your handgun. You’ll learn how to break your gun apart and put it back together for cleaning purposes. Additionally, you’ll also receive professional instructions while virtually shooting your gun utilizing our cutting edge laser target system.


In case you haven’t heard, bullets are very difficult to find these days. Should you be so lucky to find some on the shelf, you’ll probably pay twice the amount they should be. Our course will enable you to still get some quality training with your own handgun without having to sell an organ to do so. Our team of professionals will guide and assist you as you learn how to get a good grip, sight picture, sight alignment, trigger squeeze and follow through; without the bang! If you don’t own a pistol yet, our team can properly “fit” you with one that you can try before you buy.

Don’t let the lack of money, bullets or time be the reason you don’t get the quality training you need. If you want to learn, we want to teach you. Get yourself signed up for our crash course in handguns. There are no bullets needed for this course, and there are no loaded guns permitted in the classroom.

“It’s better to get the quality training you need now, while the time is right, before you find yourself in a situation wishing you had OUR training right now.”
