We are all certified USCCA instructors that believe in continued training for everyone, including ourselves. Our slogan is "Putting on a couple pounds might actually save your life". Thought there is some humor in the phrase there is even more truth! We encourage our students to carry to protect themselves and their loved ones in a safe and responsible manner. We also practice what we preach, we spend a lot of time on the range honing our skills so we can serve our students better. We believe in building student's trust in our knowledge. We can only gain that knowledge through developing our own performance and education.
