Firearms Training Offered


 

Learn to Shoot

Who is this for? Individuals who have never shot a handgun before. You may have an interest in buying a gun, but don't know what type to get, or what the choices are. Time is a factor, and you find it hard to get to a formal class like those below. This is as short a cut as it gets.
 
Description: This is an "Intro to Pistols", for people with little or no experience with handguns. Class sizes are limited to 7, but are usually less. We meet at a private range, learn about safety, the mechanics, ammo, and the fundamentals of shooting, then spend an hour in supervised shooting. After one of these sessions, most people are able to pass the CHL Proficiency, if that is an interest for them. Even if not, it is a good benchmark.   ...more on pistol training

License to Carry Class

Who is this for? You want a Handgun License; you own a handgun, and already know how to load and shoot (if not, look further up the page).
 
Description: This course is one of the requirements for the Texas License to Carry. The classroom portion is about 4 hrs long, with a written test. The shooting proficiency test is done after class, and takes about 20 minutes. Getting the license from the state then takes 2-5 weeks.   ...more on handgun license

Combo Class

Who is this for? You want a Handgun License; you do not own a handgun, and do not know how to use one.
 
Description: This class combines "Learn to Shoot" with the state CHL/LTC requirements in a private two-day sequence.   ...more on a combo class

Intermediate Shooting Instruction

(Private Instruction)
Who is this for? You have already learned to shoot. You own a gun, know how to load/unload, aim and fire. You can hit the broad side of a barn, but would like to refine those skills somewhat. Sure, you can just practice more, but you know that there are tricks to becoming a marksman that are not intuitive, and will likely take you months, or even years to learn on your own. One private lesson will cost you less than the ammo you will save.
 
Description: This is a private session, scheduled whenever we can get together. We meet at a private range, test some gun-handling and safety skills, work with a laser pistol, then go over the entire shooting platform. You learn what helps or disturbs accuracy, and how to diagnose a problem. After practicing shot groups at increasing distance, we do some drills, like one-handed, weak-handed, double-taps, multiple bad guys, timed shooting, and (optionally) draw-and-fire.   ...more on intermediate/advanced handgun

Defensive Shooting

Who is this for? You are a reasonably experienced shooter, not a beginner, but not a competitive shooter. Most of your experience is at a commercial range, standing in one place, shooting at one target. You would like some more aggressive experience in tactical defensive shooting. You have, or will buy, a holster (minimum IWB is acceptable; OWB or shoulder preferred).
 
Description: Class size is 1-4. We meet at a private range, discuss the safety rules, then go through a series of drills of increasing difficulty, like rapid fire, draw-and-shoot, flash-picture and point-shooting, multiple targets, steel, timed drills, shooting on the move, shooting from concealment.   ...more on defensive shooting

Defensive Shotgun

Who is this for? You are interested in the ultimate home defense solution, where a high skill level is not required. Maybe your interest is on behalf of a wife or girlfriend who might not spend much time training with a handgun.
 
Description: This is usually a private session, scheduled whenever we can get together. We meet at a private range, learn about shotguns in general, but focusing on the tactical pump-action used by police. We cover safety, loading and unloading, the wide variety of ammo types available, and the ones commonly used, and practice with dummy rounds. Then on to the range, for live fire and combat reloading.   ...more on shotgun training

Intro to AR15

Who is this for? You are interested in America's favorite rifle, the AR15. You may have one already, and would like to better understand optics options, or how to clean it, or you may just be thinking about getting one, and are confused by the cost differential between models.
 
Description: This is usually a private session, scheduled whenever we can get together. We meet at a private range for some indoor training, then on to the range for live fire. This class includes an introduction to these rifles, operation, cleaning, and shooting, as well as sights and optical devices.   ...more on black rifles

School Safety Certification / Active Shooter Training

Who is this for? Teachers, other employees of public/private school systems, and corporate employees
 
Description: Advanced training for people working in either a school or business setting. It includes identifying threats, barricading classrooms/offices, helping students escape, self-defense strategies with or without a firearm, combat mindset, and other topics.   ...more for Active Shooter

Ladies Training

Who is this for? Ladies interested in any of the above.
 
Description: As a general rule, we do not segregate classes; all are welcome in any class. However, sometimes it works out that several ladies have made contact, requesting a ladies class specifically. Frequently, there are other people wanting the same thing.   ...more for ladies
