Black Wing Training Courses & Philosophy

Our instructors continuously strive to improve their own knowledge and skills. They share that knowledge with the students to enhance the quality of the instruction. Your safety and your family’s safety are extremely important to us and we refuse to cut corners when we are talking about safety.

We know you want to be TRAINED to defend yourself and your loved ones, not just meet the “MINIMUM REQUIREMENT” of training. No matter what your experience level is, we believe that you deserve the most in-depth training, personal attention and patience we can provide, to help you achieve your goal.

Tens of thousands of guests have been trained here, our instructors understand the “whys” of shooting sports and defensive shooting, and are not just people with a piece of paper they acquired or regurgitating information they memorized. They live the shooting sports, continuing their education so they can pass on the best practices available in the industry.

Receive your firearm training from the right people, at the right place.
