Active Shooter Training!

Law Enforcement constantly trains to respond to Active Shooter events, but very few opportunities exist for civilians to receive similar training. With the serious increase in active shooter situations shown on TV nearly every day civilians should know how to respond. We have a program that will provide exposure to active shooter events and what you can do to respond if you find yourself in that situation.

Glock grip mod-improvement!

We now offer a complete grip stipling to greatly improve the grip area all around the grip.


The finger grooves can be removed, and the trigger guard double-undercut to alleviate your grip middle finger rubbing, and a stippled recess is formed just forward for the index finger of your support hand. 


The mod-improvement is all hand-done and is available for all Glocks and most Polymer-framed pistols. 


The complete cost for the full mod package is $250, which can be discounted for multiple frames submitted together. 

FUNDAMENTALS   OF   SHOOTING   VIDEOS

My name is Rose, and I have designed these "Animated Lessons" on the Fundamentals of Shooting, Aiming, Breath Control, Trigger Control, Grip, and Follow Through, with full audio narration that you will find nowhere else on the web.


"I really had a lot of fun working on each one of these lessons. Being an instructor out at the range, and then having the chance to create something like this has been awesome! For you, it will be more like a one-on-one lesson that you can review as many times as you like.  These lessons were created using computer-generated text-to-speech. It was done this way to keep the file size smaller, thereby reducing data usage. There is a menu bar at the bottom that will allow you to pause, rewind, fast forward, skip or turn the sound off.  I feel these may help you get acquainted with handling a firearm before you need to use it".
