What people are saying about us.

“Great instructors good class nice range. Would recommend to everyone.”
Darren B.

“Great instructors – They are very friendly and patient.”
Tom M.

If your a patriot and consider self protection a must, check these folks out. Just attended a class w Larry Browning and it was eye opening. Hitting the target is not a problem for me, but what about a magazine change, how about a jamb while bad guy is 10 feet away ? Recognition if the real target? Your good hand is wounded how do you shoot with your weak hand, ever tried it ? Who trains for that? Great class.
