Training 

Predators are experts at detecting weakness and choosing prey; when you walk with confidence you’re far less likely to be selected as a victim. At Target Masters we take training very seriously. Whether reinforcing the basics of safe gun handling, reducing accidents, teaching the moral ethical and legal use of force, or providing advanced tactical training, our focus is on saving lives. Come develop real skills and build self-confidence with Target Masters! 


Conceal and Carry Class
CCW class fee: $100.00 (cash or check only)

The Target Masters CCW course teaches all state-required information, plus the three elements needed to justify deadly force, the five things you must tell the police if you use your gun for self-defense, and additional vital information brought directly from Massad Ayoob, Dr. William April, John Farnam and more of the nations top experts on deterrence, de-selection, and legal use of deadly force. 

Required Items

  • Photo identification
  • A pistol or a revolver
  • 50 rounds of brass case ammunition

Students must be able to safely handle, load, unload, fieldstrip, and operate their weapons without supervision.

(We don't learn from or teach information from YouTube or Internet forums.) 


Basic Pistol Instruction

Details     $50.00 per person plus applicable range fees and firearm rental fees (if needed).
We will teach you how to properly handle, load, and shoot your pistol or revolver in the context of defense. The defensive use of a handgun is substantially different from target use. If you own a gun for self-defense, then this class is vitally important for you. This class costs $50.00 per person plus range fees. 

Training is offered from Monday to Friday in the afternoon. (Must call to schedule in advance.)


Advanced Training Classes

Most of our advanced classes are broken down into two-hour blocks and conducted on Saturday mornings from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM. Two-hour classes require 100 rounds of ammunition. The tuition fee for all advanced two-hour courses is $75.00.

  • Aftermath of a Shooting/Confidential Training for Certified, Responsible Citizens: This detailed course covers what you need to know, say, and do to minimize the likelihood of being killed by a perpetrator’s unknown partner, shot by the police, or prosecuted and convicted of a crime. Due to the sensitive nature of the material covered in the aftermath of a shooting course, all students must have concealed carry permits, active or retired law enforcement credentials, or a letter of clean criminal history from the sheriff’s department. There are no exceptions.

Specialty Courses

These courses are offered as requested. Please call us for more information or to schedule a course.

  • Church Security Team Skill Evaluation: This course is designed to evaluate the skill level and weapon choices of your security team. Certified does not mean qualified. How large is your sanctuary? Have you defined minimum weapon requirements for your team? How about minimum performance standards? Expecting team members to successfully confront an active shooter with a snub-nosed revolver or subcompact pistol is unrealistic. You are 100% accountable for every round fired. This is the first step in developing an effective and competent security team.
  • Responses to Active Shooter/ Home invasion: Learn what actions need to be taken to protect yourself and those in your charge during an emergency response situation. Also, learn how to get medical attention as quickly as possible to those who are wounded during an active shooter event. Medical personnel will not enter until a scene is secure. This course will teach you how to best assist law enforcement and get medical attention where it’s needed as quickly as possible
