We are not limited to basic classroom instruction. We provide you with the level of quality instruction you are looking for. One of our primary goals is to maintain a setting that is comfortable for beginners and still offer the seasoned shooter a chance to experience a dynamic shooting environment with the opportunity to improve his or her skill set.
One of Sean's favorite sayings is, "The ultimate goal is to be better regardless of your skill level. Whether it is to carry concealed on a daily/professional basis or just having the knowledge to manipulate and employ the chosen firearm with confidence". He expanded on this thought with the addition of, "There are many reasons a person would seek to expand their knowledge and skills with the gun, but in my opinion, the mindset of the shooter in the dynamic situation and the skills required to handle it, are the most important." Throughout his training experience, he has noticed that most of his eager students were unaware of the critical factors that would help them make the right decisions during a shoot/no-shoot situation. The students could engage the targets with a fast trigger, but they would lose focus when faced with multiple targets and even minor stresses like a shot timer beeping in their ear. Developing this focus is one of the primary steps in threat environment and is filled with infinite possibilities.
For the person who isn't as confident as they would like to be with carrying a concealed handgun, or is interested in their first firearm purchase, we provide a customized course called Preparing to Carry. Check out the tab on the website.
As a leading provider of firearms training, we take pride in offering the best personalized service. We are dedicated to serving the needs of our clients each and every day.
