Ready to Defend

EVERYONE has the right to protect themselves and their loved ones. And should you find yourself in that unfortunate situation, you want to be ready to defend, while understanding your rights as a citizen.

We strive to create an informative, comfortable class environment for ALL. Whether you're an individual or group, our classes are designed to help you:
  • become more knowledgeable about firearms,
  • become more confident with firearms,
  • and increase your situational awareness (i.e., perceiving danger and knowing how best to respond)
