Our Live Fire Simulator is now located in beautiful Mariposa! Come up, beat the heat, and train in our air conditioned state of the art mobile live fire simulator! We are available daily and evenings for private personal or family trainings to improve your CCW skill sets or just marksmanship in general. This is by far the best type of training you can perform and is widely held to be “as real as it gets”. Cost is $50 for 30 mins of intense personal instruction, and the intensity is why its nominally 30 mins (a point of diminishing training return is reached after approx 40 mins). We will do up to an hour if skills are up to it. Our goal is to train and coach you to survive a violent force encounter. You training session DOES NOT include the cost of ammunition as we have to shoot Law Enforcement Defensive ammunition. Ammunition cost per session is averaging $30 depending on your skill. Our approach is quality, not quantity. If necessary we will back up and train with .22’s or even go out to the square range. We want you to get the most out of your training!
Refund policies: Once a class is booked and a deposit is made, you may cancel the reservation up to two weeks prior to the event for a full refund. Refunds will be made after the event is completed however. Cancelling within two weeks of the event will incur a booking fee as we had to turn away others who could have made the training class, $50 will be withheld for this booking fee. Running Late / No Show – If you are late for your training no more than an hour we can still accommodate you, if its more than an hour or you do not show up, you will not be refunded. As a company we will have incurred the expenses and will have sadly turned other attendees away who wanted the spot we reserved for you. Please call if you are running late!

Ladies – We now offer all of our training, as well as the simulations in the FOTS trainer, with the use of “Airsoft” guns. The use of Airsoft replica firearms allows realistic weight, feel and operation training without the noise, powder or other contaminates. This works extremely well with expectant mothers to be. Why take a long time out from keeping your skills current, pregnant women can now train in a realistic environment during their pregnancy and keep skill sets current, or develop new ones for after the arrival of your child. We offer a variety of high quality “Airsoft” replica guns for training to include AR, 1911, M&P platforms.
