Rental Guns

We currently have three pistols available to rent for our classes. If you don’t own a suitable handgun, don’t wish to drop $100 on extra speedloaders or magazines, or you don’t own a pistol at all, then we have you covered. The guns are available on a first-come first-serve basis. If you need a rental gun, then let us know as soon as you plan to sign up.

The Three rental pistols we have are a Glock 19 (9mm), and Two TP9SF Elite (9mm). Each gun comes with a holster, double magazine pouch, and three magazines.  As always, bringing the ammo is your responsibility. You can shoot any factory-loaded (not reloaded or remanufactured) ammo through our rental guns.

The cost for one rental gun & gear is $30+sales tax added onto the cost of your class, due at the time you pay the deposit. 


Private and Mobile Training

We are also available to conduct training at your location. We can do private training for an individual or group. We can host private classes on our own range or at your location. We can use private property for the training as long as it is safe (there must be a backstop). Use the registration form above if you’re interested in hosting an open enrollment class at your location or doing private training for yourself or your group. Rates for private lessons start at $50/hour per student. For private group classes of at least (4) students, we charge closer to our normal rates ($150 plus possible additional expenses for a one day class).
