NRA Basic Instructor and Pistol Instructor Training

This 2-day course includes NRA Basic Instructor (BIT) and Pistol Instructor training. This is the training certification required to teach concealed carry in Texas (TXLTC) and New Mexico (NMCCW). Attendance requires an application process and pre-course firearms qualification.

NRA Range Safety Officer and Chief Range Safety Officer certification are the "Gold Standard" for the firearms community. The Range Safety Officer Course is a ONE DAY of training. The TWO DAY Chief Range Safety Officer Course includes Basic Instructor Training.

NRA Basics of Pistol Shooting (NMCCW)

Each 2-day course includes NRA Basic Pistol and New Mexico Concealed Handgun instruction, and both NRA and NMCCW range qualification. NMCCW qualification requires a handgun of caliber .32 or larger. Students need 200 rounds of ammo for this course.

NRA Defensive Pistol (INTERMEDIATE)

Each 1-day course develops the skills, knowledge, and confidence for ethical and responsible use of a handgun for home defense and personal protection; to include drawing the concealed handgun from a holster, situational awareness, and the fighting mindset.

Gunfighter Defensive Pistol (ADVANCED)

Each 1-day course develops skills to fight and win with the handgun, using dynamic training scenarios that require decision-making and physical movement. Four courses to choose from. Compromised Positions, Vehicle Defense, Close Fighting, and Disruptive Environments.

USCCA Concealed Carry / Home Defense

Each 1-day course addresses conflict avoidance, situational awareness; the physiology of violent encounters, and the legal aspects of deadly force. This introductory shooting course DOES NOT meet the training or qualification requirement for NMCCW.

USCCA Countering the Mass Shooter

 Each 1-day course presents data on how magazine capacity, “gun-free” zones, victim response, and “universal background checks” impact the ability to eliminate mass shootings. This is an awareness course only, and does not involve active shooter drills.

ALiCE Active Shooter Civilan Response

 Each 1-day course provides students the opportunity to participate in active shooter response drills in their home or in their workplace.  This course includes instruction on gunshot trauma first aid, tourniquet application, and developing a fighting mindset.

Basic Carbine (AR-15)

Each 1-day course introduces shooters to the AR-15 platform, increases safety awareness and technical competence, and develops marksmanship skills. Students disassemble and maintain the MSR; and validate zero using downrange feedback.

Tactical Carbine (AR-15) (INTERMEDIATE)

Each 1-day course develops shooting proficiency by applying tactical military marksmanship techniques using optical sights. Students learn to assess holdover at ranges <25-meters and transition to handgun based upon priority of active threats.

Gunfighter Carbine (AR-15) (ADVANCED)

Each 1-day course develop skills to fight and win with the rifle, applying movement and tactical decision-making with existing rifle and pistol skills. Four courses: Compromised Positions, Vehicle Defense, Close Fighting, and Disruptive Environments.
