COMING February 1st! We are adding TASER training and certification to our class offerings to provide you with a less-lethal* option for self defense! Watch this site for details!

* The TASER device is a less-lethal, not non-lethal weapon, since the possibility of serious injury or death can exist whenever the weapon is deployed. Sharp barbed metal projectiles delivering an electric current are used, so misuse or abuse of the weapon increases the likelihood that serious injury or death may occur.

What makes RF’s Firearms / Training unique is that while we hold titles such as Instructor, Trainer, and Training Counselor, we take more pride in the fact that we know what it takes to train our students in the SAFE and EFFECTIVE use of firearms in shooting sports and self defense.  We have real world experience, and…

We offer the NRA Classes listed below. Click the class for details:

Need a class, but short on time? Not all classes have students scheduled in them. Call me… I can do a class to fit YOUR schedule! Classes (Concealed Carry included) do not have to be completed in one sitting!

Interactive Scenario Based Simulation Training!

If you own a gun for personal and/or home defense, the need to practice is critical. Going to the range to shoot at paper targets is necessary to acquire certain shooting skills but that’s not enough to prepare yourself for a potential life or death shooting incident. Our simulator training helps you with this preparation.

Our Interactive Scenario Based Simulation Trainer presents a variety of interactive video simulations depicting such life threatening possibilities as home invasions, muggings, carjackings, and more. It also includes interactive videos to practice shoot / don’t shoot (threat assessment) scenarios – FBI’s Hogan’s Alley type scenarios, moving steel and gun range targets for sight picture, stance, and grip practice, and even the Tueller Drill.

Simulation training applications improve performance, save lives and can compress the time required to develop skills. In some cases, simulators can even provide more effective training than live fire can.

Our simulation trainer will work with a SIRT pistol, your own pistol (most common calibers), or even your AR-15 ! It is available as standalone training, or optionally as an addition to our Home Firearms Safety, Defensive Pistol, Personal Protection Series, and Women’s Handgun and Self Defense Fundamentals courses.

Thoughts for the day…

And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth in him.

Daniel 2: 21 – 22 KJV

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Isaiah 51:6 KJV

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 11:15 KJV
