CWP and Basic Pistol Classes

We offer our South Carolina CWP, Florida CWP, and Basic Pistol classes throughout the year. Train with us in person, face to face with both men and women instructors who know what they're doing and what you should do. Ours are not online courses, correspondence courses, or "short classes" that do not meet basic standards or that even violate laws. Our combined 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 Classes

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. But we've greatly enhanced the NRA class and tailored it to meet the real needs of real people in South Carolina and neighboring states. NRA certification for Personal Protection In The Home is available as an option. Optional NRA Personal Protection In The Home Certification is for anyone who wants to attend the NRA Personal Protection In The Home Instructor class.  Learn more about our Home Defense class . . .

Defensive Handgun Classes

Defensive Handgun is fast-paced scenario-based advanced training in the skills, strategies, and  tactics you need to protect and defend yourself in the potentially chaotic world outside your home. We pull out all the stops. Our Defensive Handgun classes have two levels (Level 1 and Level 2) based on the two levels of the NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home classes. But we've geatly enhanced those two NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home classes so we can focus sharply on the realities of personal protection and self-defense in South Carolina and neighboring states. NRA certification for Personal Protection Outside The Home is available as an option for students who have completed our Home Defense class and successfully complete both levels of our Defensive Handgun classes with the optional NRA certification. That optional NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home Certification (both Level 1 and Level 2) are the prerequisite for anyone who wants to attend the NRA Personal Protection Outside The Home Instructor class.   Learn more about our two Defensive Handgun classes . . .

Defensive Shotgun Classes

Our Defensive Shotgun training classes are designed for both men and women. We teach you how to use a shotgun as the ultimate in personal protection and self defense. Learn how to reduce the perceived recoil of a shotgun. Focus on stopping an attack fast without harming innocent people in your home or outside. Avoid the many traps others encounter in using the most powerful defensive firearm available. Real 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 as we teach it. it's not a game or a sport. It's the decisive way to stop a deadly force confrontation.

Personal Training

Not a class because there are no other students who need attention, Personal Training is individual tutoring pure and simple. It's one on one—just you and a first class instructor who focuses on your needs. 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 on a mutually convenient day. Learn more about  Personal Training . . .

Training Classes

You don't need to be an instructor or a champion shooter to becomse a certified NRA Range Safety Officer. Our NRA Range Safety Officer Training class is extraordinarily practical on its own. We teach you the knowledge, skills, and attitude essential to organizing, conducting, and supervising safe shooting activities and range operations. We're real all the way. We have real teachers and real students interacting in a real classroom at a real shooting facility with real guns of the kinds you will encounter. We actually help you learn to help real people shoot safely with firearms used here in real shooting environments. Our NRA Range Safety Officer Training is not an online course. It's a real class with real people and we give you real experience. See why our NRA Range Safety Officer Training class is  highly recommended for every firearms instructor too.
