We have real world experience, and…

CHILDREN’S FIREARMS & SAFETY COURSE!!! NEW USCCA FAMILY COURSE!!!
Children’s Firearms & Safety Fundamentals course is a FAMILY course. This means you can attend this course with the intention of passing on what you have learned to your children, OR, you can attend with them.
How the next generation learns about firearms and firearm safety is not only important to them developing a healthy respect for firearms and appreciation for the safety involving them, but it is pivotal to the future of gun ownership in America.
This course will teach you how to make the topic of firearms and safety a positive, welcoming and fun experience for the entire family. You will learn how to introduce your own family to the world of situational awareness, firearms ownership, the gun-safety rules, basic terminology and an understanding of how to properly use firearms.

Interactive Scenario Based Simulation Training!
If you own a gun for personal and/or home defense, the need to practice is critical. Going to the range to shoot at paper targets is necessary to acquire certain shooting skills but that’s not enough to prepare yourself for a potential life or death shooting incident. Our simulator training helps you with this preparation.
Our Interactive Scenario Based Simulation Trainer presents a variety of interactive video simulations depicting such life threatening possibilities as home invasions, muggings, carjackings, and more. It also includes interactive videos to practice shoot / don’t shoot (threat assessment) scenarios – FBI’s Hogan’s Alley type scenarios, moving steel and gun range targets for sight picture, stance, and grip practice, and even the Tueller Drill.
Simulation training applications improve performance, save lives and can compress the time required to develop skills. In some cases, simulators can even provide more effective training than live fire can.
Our simulation trainer will work with a SIRT pistol, your own pistol (most common calibers), or even your AR-15 ! It is available as standalone training, or optionally as an addition to our Home Firearms Safety, Defensive Pistol, Personal Protection Series, and Women’s Handgun and Self Defense Fundamentals courses. (Details in links, or the drop down menu at the top of this page.)

We offer TASER training certification, and TASER sales to provide you with a less-lethal* option for self defense! Click the TASER icon below, or the TASER option in the menu at the top of this page for details!
* The TASER device is a less-lethal, not non-lethal weapon, since the possibility of serious injury, however slight, or death can exist whenever the weapon is deployed. Sharp barbed metal projectiles delivering an electric current are used, so misuse or abuse of the weapon increases the likelihood that serious injury or death may occur.

Thoughts for the day…
1 Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.
2 O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.
3 Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed: let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.
4 Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
6 Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.
7 Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake, O LORD.
8 Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way.
9 The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
10 All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
11 For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great.
12 What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.
13 His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.
14 The secret of the LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.
15 Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
16 Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
17 The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O bring thou me out of my distresses.
18 Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
19 Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
20 O keep my soul, and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.
22 Redeem Israel, O God, out of all his troubles.
