All of our Concealed Weapons Permit and Basic Pistol classes are complete. They meet or exceed the requirements of SLED, the State of South Carolina, the State of Florida, and many other states.

Home Defense is the training you need so you can protect and defend against home invasion. Our Home Defense classes are based on the NRA Personal Protection In The Home class.

(The optional NRA Personal Protection In The Home Certification is for anyone who wants to become an NRA Personal Protection In The Home Instructor.)  Learn more about our Home Defense class . . .

Defensive Shotgun Classes

Our Defensive Shotgun training classes teach you how to use a shotgun as the ultimate in personal protection and self defense. You learn how to reduce the perceived recoil of a shotgun using simple techniques, focus on the goal of stopping an attack fast without harming innocent people, and avoid the many traps in using the most powerful defensive firearm available to an individual. Defensive Shotgun shooting is not a matter of "spray and pray" and has little in common with hunting, trap, skeet, or sporting clays. Although Defensive Shotgun shooting is enjoyable it's not a game.  Learn more about our Defensive Shotgun class . . .

We work with you to help you learn what you need to learn, the way you need to learn it. Our kind of individual instruction is often the fastest, most economical way you can learn because we focus on you exclusively. Each personal training session is two hours during one of the following time slots reserved in advance just for you on a mutually convenient day.
