Gun Cleaning Workshop

It is important as a responsible gun owner that you clean your firearm regularly. Cleaning your gun regularly is as essential as routine oil changes for your vehicle. Handguns need to be cleaned routinely to ensure accuracy, function correctly, and to maintain a long lasting finish that can span several lifetimes.

The gun cleaning workshop will guide you through the inner workings of your firearm, as well as, help you identify the signs of wear and tear. In disassembling and reassembling your fire arm repeatedly yourself, you will develop confidence in your gun handling skills. This confidence will carry over to firing your gun on the range and in real life situations.

Please remember… The maintenance and routine care are neccessary to keep a handgun in good reliable and safe working condition!


Shooting Concepts/ Advanced Fundamentals

Obtaining your carry permit is an important first step in protecting yourself; however, by simply obtaining your permit doesn’t neccessarily make you an accurate shot. Shooting Concepts and Advanced Fundamentals allows you to get comfortable with shooting many rounds and is designed to equip you with the skills to protect yourself in a life threatening situation.

Most robberies occur up close and personal. Keep these statistics in mind:

  • The average distance of a firefight is 21 feet (7 yards)
  • It takes the average person 3 seconds to close that distance
  • It takes an individual four tenths of a second to acknowledge and react to a threat
  • The average number of fired rounds is 2 to 5
  • The average firefight lasts 3 to 6 seconds

Remember there is a difference between target shooting and shooting to live!
