Q. What is the STEP program?  

A. The STEP program grew out of our desire to provide the best possible safety and firearms training through world-class instructors. Our instructors reported that their students always asked "what class can I take next?" So we worked together to create the syllabus of classes found on this web site so that YOU can maximize skill, knowledge and comfort with firearms, hand-to-hand encounters and situational awareness in any and all situations!

Q. How do I decide what class to take?

A. Find an upcoming class on the calendar and read through the description. If you're still not sure, go to the Instructor Bio page and get the instructor's email -- send a question to the instructor and he/she will get back to you.

Q. Is there a class for someone who has never even held a gun before?

A. Yep! The "First Time Holding A Gun" class will familiarize you with handguns, how they work, how to handle them, the basics of marksmanship and more. 

Q. Do I have to have my own gun?

A. Not for the more basic classes. Some of the beginner classes actually help you understand how to pick the right gun for you. For more advanced classes you WILL need your own gun, as well as the appropriate accessories such as a holster, a good belt, extra magazines and mag pouches. Make sure you read class descriptions carefully so you know what to bring to your class. If you're not sure, email your instructor.

Q. Do you have 'ladies only' training?

A. Yes, on Saturday mornings from 8:30 to 10:30 and on Wednesday afternoons from 3:00-6:00 ladies can shoot on the range for $9 and try out different guns. Skilled Range Officers and Trainers will be on hand to help you overcome any issues you are dealing with. 

Q. Can you buy ammunition on the range? 

A. Yes, you can also rent ear protection and eye protection and purchase a variety of targets.
