Firearms Training

The Old West saying conveys a universal truth: “God created men, Sam Colt made them equal!” Whether you are male or female, young or old, nothing evens the odds in a self-defense situation like a firearm in the hands of a well-trained citizen.

Texas Defensive Training uses proven methods and high quality instruction to help you develop firearms skills quickly and safely. If you are totally new to firearms, we recommend starting with either a 1-on-1 Private Lesson, or our Intro to Handgun course. The next step for the competent shooter is obtaining their Texas License to Carry. For those who have already completed LTC, we highly encourage you to take our Defensive Handgun 1 course.

At a cost of $60 per hour, 1-on-1 training is ideal for:

  • Brand-new Shooters
  • Getting familiar with a new firearm you’ve purchased
  • Experienced Shooters seeking to improve their marksmanship

Don’t own a firearm? No problem! Access to FREE rental firearms is included with our Private Lessons. Be sure to read our Terms and Conditions, then click below to get started:
