Sandy is absolutely amazing! He was very warm, professional and informative on a call when I initially reached out for more information. This alone made me want to do business with him! Once we showed up at his serene location, the wife and I were even more impressed. It is such a relaxed environment, which really helps to eliminate any apprehension or anxiety one may have. Lastly, Sandy was very welcoming and approachable in person. His calmness and patience really made my wife and I feel confident. TOP NOTCH!

We offer Texas LTC classes, private training on pistol and shotgun, pistol classes, and active shooter training for individuals from the localities of Dallas, Plano, Carrollton, Richardson, Allen, Frisco, Anna, McKinney, Melissa, Trenton, Blue Ridge, Leonard, Bonham, Nevada, Wylie, and nearby communities, as well as providing specialized firearms training for the Palmer and Melissa school systems.

Basic Pistol


For people who have not yet learned to shoot, we offer this:

"Learn to Shoot"

. Done entirely at a private range E of Plano, we spend about an hour on the firing line learning safety and fundamentals, and an hour in supervised shooting. This is suitable for beginners and near-beginners.

  • Firearm safety
  • Handgun features and nomenclature
  • Revolver vs. semi-automatic
  • Action types
  • Ammunition types
  • Safe pistol loading and clearing
  • Establishing the shooting platform
  • Laser pistol training
  • Dry-fire and live-fire practice
These students generally do quite well on the LTC Proficiency, if that is their interest.

Texas LTC Classes


We offer the

License to Carry Class

online at a discounted price. The online module takes about 4 hours to complete, and consists of several sections, covering
  • Laws that relate to carrying a handgun
  • Laws that relate to use of force and deadly force
  • Handgun use and safety
  • Holsters
  • Non-violent dispute resolution
  • Proper storage practices for handguns
In addition to the online class above, you will also come to the range for an hour for the Handgun Proficiency Test. People I teach to shoot never have a problem with it.

Handgun License Checklist

Please note that the Texas LTC class is not about learning to shoot. You should already have at least minimal proficiency with a handgun before signing up.
If in doubt, go to a range and see if you can hit a paper plate at 3 yards 3 out of 4 times. If you can, you should be fine.



Intermediate Shooting


For those who already know how to load, fire, and clear their gun, this private live-fire pistol instruction is intended to fine-tune your skills. Training may include more advanced defensive skills, like one-handed shooting, rapid-fire, and flash picture sighting.



School Safety Certification / Active Shooter Training


For teachers and other employees of public/private school systems, this two-day class is intensive active shooter training. It includes identifying threats, barricading classrooms, helping students escape, self-defense strategies with or without a firearm, combat mindset, and other topics. McKinney Firearms Training is certified by Texas DPS to teach this certification course.

There is a shorter version of the above for Church Security Team training.
