TACTICAL HANDGUN, RIFLE & FORCE ON FORCE TRAINING IN DENVER, NC & CHARLOTTE, NC

OUR APPROACH

We believe that everyone has a right to defend themselves. Our goal is to train as close as possible to reality and prepare armed civilians and first responders to win the fight when it matters most.  Our Firearms and Tactics instructors Adir Rafael and Jason Davis are here to make sure that every course  is being handled with excellence while providing the best training experience. What sets our instructors apart are their ability to communicate with everyone. They will tailor their style whether it is the first time you are holding a firearm, or you are a professional shooter.  

We also believe that shooting is a skill that needs maintenance or it will suffer. For that reason, we opened our "ARMED & READY CLUB" for individuals who value training, needs consistency and a looking for a range to practice in. More details below.

 LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS

As gun owners, we must have a full and clear knowledge of legal self-defense in all aspects. Life threatening encounters happen fast and often times by surprise. We will be influenced by external stress that can easily impair our judgment. That is the reason we must not only know the legal elements of self-defense, but also learn how to execute them successfully by utilizing simulator training as well as scenario-based training which our academy offers.

"Just because we can doesn't mean we should".  We train people to preserve life, and the best decision often times in life-threatening situations is to try to avoid escalating force unnecessarily. That is why it is crucially important for for every gun owner to spend time learning hand-to-hand skills on top of their armed skills. Our Combatives Program is highly recommended to diversify your skills so the lethal option is not your only option.
 

 MORAL CONSIDERATIONS

OUR THREE TRAINING PILLARS

We build thinkers, not just shooters. The context presented in our courses is designed to consider your environment, the people you are with, and the best option that will help you survive the encounter. The use of the right gear, the speed in which you can deploy, and your ability to think before you act is what is likely to save your life.   

Our holistic approach to firearms training involve courses that are designed for any level. Whether you are new to firearms, or highly trained, we have a course that will enhance your ability to perfect your platform.
