Advanced Firearms
Run in conjunction with the Personal Protection Class, this
Advanced Firearms training focuses intensely on decision
shooting and shooting under stressful conditions. The class also
discusses weapon selection, and law and regulations. The
student will be involved in many practical exercises.

The Advanced Firearms training is a class we only run twice per
year. Register now before you miss out!

then you have to take entry level training again. Classes
