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!

Specialty Courses

Offered upon request. 

  • 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.
