I had an amazing time today in the CCW Beginner Pistol Certification class!  Julian is a wonderful and encouraging instructor with the ability to accommodate any skill level.  On top of learning a ton…I had so much fun!  I can’t wait to take the Citizens Response to Active Shooter class next!

Great Team! My wife and I took a intro carbine course and Matt and Irvin were awesome. Very professional and personable. They showed us our weak points, how to fix them and gave us the tools we need to practice safely on our own to come back for a more advanced course in the future. Highly recommend.

I have never used a firearm before. Where should I start?

Congratulations on taking the first steps in developing your skills and confidence with firearms.

We offer fundamentals-based training, including training for beginners and first-time shooters.

Our motto is “We Meet You Where You’re At And Make You Better.”

We recommend you consider the Pistol 1 Skill Builder Class as a place to start.

For any additional questions Please Call 480-244-7204 and we will be happy to assist you.

Do you offer practice packages?

Absolutely!

We offer a variety of firearms courses in progression.

Each course is fundamentals-based and builds off of the skills of the previous class(es).

We have found the most successful students are the ones that come back and take our courses more than once.

We also strongly encourage students to practice on their own.

What Our Students Say:

“Every time I come out to class, I learn something new!”

“Coming back to class after practicing on my own really helps me to make huge jumps in my progress.”

Please Call 480-244-7204 for current practice package options to meet your training goals.

What do I need to bring to class?

Great Question!

  • We always recommend you bring water and snacks to any of our classes.
  • For outdoor, live-fire classes, please be conscious of the weather and nature of the outdoor environment. While we will do our best to make the outdoor class as enjoyable as possible, please come prepared with close-toed shoes, a hat, sunscreen and other items you may require, especially if the class is in the summer months in Phoenix!
  • We suggest you bring paper and a writing implement to take notes, as you see fit.
  • You are welcome to sign our waiver too and bring it to the class.
