“Two-day Conceal Carry class was attended by myself, my daughter, and friend. All of us at different comfort levels and experience with handguns. The staff was very professional, direct, and nice… I would highly recommend this organization for any training they offer.”

“I was pleased with the schooling I received at the private training facilities. Steve and his partner Slow Poke did a great job one-upping my skill level. They commended a safe environment and were clearly experienced and professional… I would train there again.”

“I recently took the Level 1 Pistol class with my girlfriend, who was terrified of firearms, and it was an amazing experience. I can honestly say this class really reassured, corrected, and improved our fundamentals. I trained with Steve and Danny, amazing instructors…”

“Great class and an awesome experience. The instructors took time to work one-on-one with students and help fine-tune even them most minor details to get the most of every shot. I’m looking forward to an excuse to come to Anchorage again soon.”

Our Gun Safety & Firearms Training Philosophy

When you sign-up for a gun safety course or tactical training with us, you can expect a relaxed but serious atmosphere. We run defensive courses, not bullseye-style marksmanship courses, so we believe that quality is more important than quantity when it comes to expending ammunition. We also recognize that each individual is different, and we’ll work with you to achieve consistent marksmanship without compromising safety.

We Look Forward to Seeing
You at the Range
