Pistol/Rifle 1


When we set out to build our entry level curriculum, we wanted to do so in a way that got people ready, fast.  All of us from Instructors, Military professionals, Law Enforcement and everyday carry citizens and protectors started somewhere.  We have built CORE to benefit shooters of all levels, especially newer firearm owners and shooters.  Everyone of our instructors had their own upbringing and process to get them where they are today and we have pooled those experiences to bring you a level 1 course like no other.

You'll start with an introduction to marksmanship fundamentals and move on to skillset mechanics such as reloads, malfunction clearing, and multiple target transitions.  We'll then introduce shooting on the move and even end with a little run and gun.  

Pistol CORE - $150

Rifle CORE - $150

Pistol/Rifle 2


Critical Applications is a wealth of collective experience and training, combined to bring to you a level 2 training course like no other.   We take everything you learned during Core and apply those skillsets to challenging drills and scenarios. 

We start the day by taking inventory of  fundamentals and skillsets and quickly get into fighting.  This course will push you like never before.  We put a lot of rounds down range, making every single hit count.  You'll also dive into physiological and the mentality behind why we train the way we do and why it is important to apply and test the fundamentals under stress.

You must complete a Core class for the Critical Applications course you wish to register for.

Critical Pistol Applications  - $170

Critical Rifle Applications  - $175
