Your first time at the range may be filled with different emotions, but fear will not be one of them at Rampant Defense Group.  We eliminate fear and instill confidence in each student by covering safety, mechanics and core fundamentals before live-fire on the range. 

You’ll learn the basic safety rules, proper terminology and etiquette for future gun shop or range visits, how to obtain a Master Grip and more.

Student will shoot .22 caliber handguns at our private setting on the range, separated from the general public.  This allows us to focus on your confidence, free from judgement or intimidation.

Anyone under the age of 18 must be registerd and accompanied by parent or legal guardian.  No exceptions.

Students are not allowed to have/handle live ammunition in the classroom - there are no exceptions.  It doesn't matter if it's in a locked box, a magazine or your pocket.

If you have a handgun you'd like to shoot at the range, please bring it into the classroom.  One of the instructors will clear it and stage it with the others we'll have on display - the more variety the better the learning experience.

You're welcomed to bring your own drink, snacks and lunch if you prefer.
