This class, Tactical Pistol and our Trauma Medical Class are the three classes of the 14 we offer that I can say are a must have.  Sometime in your life you are probably going to have to know the skills taught in these three classes.  No pre-req. is required for this class.  We cover how to disarm knives and guns,  how to choke our a much bigger adversary and how to get the fight over with fast.  This is one of the most popular courses for High School and College age girls and for those that work in areas where guns are not allowed.  Get trained!


In case you missed them, here’s the videos that Anthony put out last week!

Do not confuse earned confidence with being cocky.  Do not kid yourself, confidence is different from macho ego fantasy. A cocky attitude can get you killed or hurt.  It can cost you a job or a career.  An attitude of EARNED confidence means you have put in the work.  You know what is at risk.  You know what reward awaits your hard work and decisive action.  When you know you can hurt or kill someone, a reasonable person will avoid the fight till he can avoid it no longer.  He is a humble warrior.  Earn your confidence with us.  Put in the effort.  Put in the time. Visit to sign up for a class where you will learn it right the first time.



Backpacking, hiking, biking, fishing- Sometimes in the outdoors you may come across large animals that could take your life just as easily as you could take theirs. When traveling in the backcountry, humans are not at the top of the food chain. 99% of the time, you will never have a life-threatening problem with an animal, but that one percent of the time, are you prepared to protect yourself? This is a very real type of situation that I have heard first-hand about; my cousin was dragged by a mountain lion when he was younger. Obviously in a situation like this you should first use every single precaution you can to avoid conflict with the animal, but sometimes they simply can’t be avoided. If bear spray isn’t going to do the trick, your 9mm/.45 caliber carry gun just isn’t going to cut it either. In fact, it is not recommended to shoot any sort of large animal with those calibers because you are more likely to just piss it off. Make sure to bring along a MINIMUM of .357 magnum to do the job should the need arise.



You may be asking “Is it really worth pointing my weapon at my junk every time I holster it?” When I sat down in Anthony’s tactical concealed carry class for the first time I was thinking the same thing. For some, the appendix carry setup is a little scary at first, but when you take a minute to think about the dynamics it is not as bad as people think. The main concern is that fact that your gun is going to be pointing at your femoral artery, where one shot in the right place could have you dead in minutes. The thing is, when you holster correctly, the gun only covers your body when completely holstered (which keeps the trigger covered and in my opinion can be safer than the actual switch safety). Pair proper form with a firing pin safety and you are set to go with your manhood/womanhood intact. Appendix carry is also a lot easier of a position to defend from. If you find yourself in a life or death situation, you can defend yourself much easier with your pistol in the sweet spot between both your hands where it can be easily accessed.

Greeley Tribune Article Featuring Us Here at Colorado Shooting Sports

Not long ago we were contacted by a reporter at the Greeley Tribune that wanted to do an article on the positive side of firearms and their everyday use. The article was published in this weekends paper and here is the link.



October Newsletter


Close shave but we narrowly missed losing our 55,000 square foot building during the recent flooding so we have a bit of understanding with those who have had some hardship.  With that in mind we are about to start a new section of the shop that will focus on disaster preparedness (water filtration, food storage, etc) so keep an eye out for awesome new things at the shop.

2014 Training Schedule should be up before the end of the month.  Some changes to expect:

No Sunday courses unless they are by request and scheduled in advance. 

Only One Tactical Rifle and Tactical Shotgun class for the entire year.  We can always add one but any additions will be by request and must be scheduled in advance.

Only 1 Trauma Medical class will be available for the entire year.  Again, we have HUGE Trauma med classes already scheduled for next year but they are closed private classes so if you want to host us in state OR out of state for Trauma Medical classes… give us a call and we will be happy to put one on for you. 

Only two Advanced Tactical Pistol courses in 2014

Our new Performance Pistol Course is coming on line and it will blow your socks off!  Video and details on the course coming soon!!!

Low Light Night Fighting, Close Range Combat, and Vehicle Gun-fighting Courses have been removed from the schedule and will ONLY be available by request, must have minimum numbers, and be scheduled in advance on a day of your choosing.  We are filling all of our Tactical Pistol and Basic Pistol Courses but cannot seem to get people to these very inexpensive and vitally important classes so we have to put our efforts in to what is going to draw people.

Basic Pistol Course will be offered on the same day as every Tactical Pistol Course and they will also have their own dedicated days as well.  Basic Pistol is already becoming one of our most popular classes…. But we have also seen 70% of Basic Pistol students upgrade to our Tactical Pistol class within one hour of being in classJ.

Classes coming up in October:

Basic Pistol 5th and 19th

Tactical Pistol 5th

Tactical Shotgun 12th


Classes in November:

Basic Pistol 2nd, 16th, 23rd

Tactical Pistol 2nd, 23rd

Advanced Tactical Pistol 9th



Several 5 week private pistol and rifle training slots have opened up.  Check it out on the website and let us know if we can help you achieve your shooting and competition goals.

We have had several inquiries into our Trauma Medical Class and other classes being available out of state and the answer is YES we can offer our classes remotely to your location.  Give us a call and let us see how we can help your family, church or company with your training and emergency preparedness goals.
