You’re looking to choose a firearm for defense in your home or business, and you’re not ready to be carrying a gun in public. What gives you the best combination of ease of use, light weight, compact, light recoil, modularity, accuracy, lethality, ammunition capacity, and affordability? The carbine! A small, light, reduced power rifle made specifically for defense!ย 

Let us help you understand the role of the carbine in modern self defense, why good people all over the country, and the world rely upon such a weapon, and why it is the ideal firearm for beginners, families, ladies, and those either not “into” guns, or just getting started!ย 

Gun laws are complex, equipment selection is confusing, but don’t worry, we got you covered with a whole fleet of weapons that are free to borrow! You just need to make a note during checkout that you would like to use a set of gear provided by the school. Equipment is limited, so speak up early!

Training is in a beginner friendly and low pressure environment. Class sizes are small so you have a lot of close attention from your instructors. You get to ask questions, test out gear, learn how to move and shoot fast, and have a ton of fun while you’re at it!


Our facility is in the mountains 1 hour east of San Jose, 1 hour south from Livermore. Detail directions will be emailed to those who sign up. If you are inexperienced in driving mountain roads, give yourself 2 hours to make the trip.
