We are a well-rounded group of instructors with extensive Law Enforcement, Military, and Medical backgrounds, that offer a commitment to the student and their training needs.
Our experience driven curriculum provides unique skill sets that are useful well past the range, because you get the same instruction as LE/Military, nothing watered down. With a student to instructor ratio of 5/1, instructors are consistently engaged with the students throughout the training experience to build for future success.
We not only offer date selected classes, but if you have a group that likes to train together we will tailor make a class that fits your groups needs at no extra charge…we are student driven.
Steve Shields – Owner/Operator
With 27 years of Law Enforcement, 25 years of LE Firearms Instruction for various agencies, teaching at the Washington State LE Academy, instructing and certifying other LE instructors, and armorer certified with many manufacturers, I have been blessed to be trained by some of the best in the industry.
We don’t have any fancy names for what we do here. We instruct with urgency and conviction based on our actual experience. We have learned what works and in some unfortunate cases what has failed from the knowledge gained in actual street, rural and military confrontations.
