Shooting Simulator

NEW for 2017!!!

Our newest training tool is our “Smokeless Range”. This indoor simulator allows you to focus on the basics of shooting, while interacting with simulated threats in a realistic “Shoot-No Shoot” environment.

We are currently working to integrate this awesome training tool into our concealed carry training classes.
