We have acquired 3 extra days at the range that I have not scheduled any classes for yet; June 30, July 1, and July 7th. I would like to teach an introductory Pistol course and maybe a carbine course too. If there is interest in these or any other class please respond. Last minute I realize, however the range had extra days so I grabbed them. We also have a 2 day Concealed Carry course on July 1st (5-9pm) & July 2nd (9-5)

Great weekend of advanced pistol classes with Russell Tanji! Strong work students! If you haven't taken a class with Russell you'll have a chance again next year. That 3rd picture is me not paying attention...


Russell is coming! Our head instructor Russell Tanji will be here this month. Still room for the pistol classes. The Urban Survival Skills and Tactics class might have 2 spots left. Call/message/text with questions!


Greg and Travis doing a little Instructor day fun. Thanks to Jason Wood and targets USA for providing enough steel targets to build a battleship!


Brought my boy to watch class!


Sunny weather and (relatively) high temps! Let's start training!

I've added a few classes to the schedule:

April 1 women's only Basic Pistol
April 26 women's only Basic Pistol

Please let me know if you are interested!



Training pays off!
Sparing the details, I never could have taken this Texas Hog without training and practice, practice, practice...


In these cold winter months remember your Dry-Fire practice! Follow these rules:
-Make sure ALL ammunition is in a different room than the one you're drilling in.
-Perform your drills in reps of 20 (that magic number that develops neural pathways!)
-Stick to simple drills. Use your everyday carry pistol and holster. Reloads/trigger reset/ malfunctions (use snap caps).


I have a holster class for those that have completed a basic pistol course coming up October 9th from 10-5. Message me with any questions if you're interested.
