We have four dedicated trainers all with significant weapons backgrounds. One thing we can promise – you will NEVER get a BAD instructor.

Small arms, medium range, and extreme long range are our specialties and everything in between. We want to be your first and last choice for training in the region. We care because it’s the right approach. Above all, we will treat you fairly, you will get exactly what you pay for and so much more, are ethical and the safest trainers around.
