Personal accountability and responsibility are the foundation from which we build all of our classes.

Our motto, "Our right, our responsibility," has numerous meanings if you read it carefully, and we mean each of them.

It is up to us to protect our firearm freedoms as bestowed upon us by our Founding Fathers and the United States Constitution, our instructors are committed to these freedoms and will protect them through safe and responsible firearm use and by setting the example for all other instructors to follow.
