Our Mission is to make amazing firearms and other lifesaving training as accessible to as many people as possible.
We train a wide range of people – from those who will never touch a firearm or those who have never touched a firearm before to those who already have military or law enforcement training.
We work hard to provide knowledge and instruction in a safe, judgment-free environment.
In our ever more chaotic world, we strive to train anyone who wants to have defensive skills, whether it is firearms skills or those more suited for non-permissive environments; including people who will never be armed.
