DFW can help. We also offer crime prevention/personal safety seminars

Our trainers are former military & police officers who are also
training experts in the corporate world. These Texas DPS, NRA (National
Rifle Association) and TCLEOSE certified instructors are skillful and
enthusiastic shooters who take great pride in making their classes as
interesting and enjoyable as possible for everyone. Our public classes
are kept very small - minimum of 4, maximum of 12 - so every student
has the attention they deserve and can achieve the best possible

August 2016 Update:
We've finally found our new home - a great property in
Waxahachie, a few miles south west of Dallas. We have an air
conditioned classroom and will soon have our outdoor range built so we
still won’t waste your valuable time traveling long distances between a
classroom and public/club shooting range and still no extra range fees.
We hope to resume live fire classes by October, but in the meantime some
classes/seminars can be held off site or at your own location by
arrangement, including the personal safety classes and ammunition
reloading classes. Private pistol coaching sessions may also be held at
a convenient public range by arrangement.
You may have read or heard some horror stories from female shooters
about a firearms instructor's poor attitude. Rest assured FAST DFW
instructors enjoy training any responsible adult who is keen &
willing to learn, whether a student is male or female is irrelevant to
us. In fact we’ve found women often achieve the best scores in the
classroom and on the range.
Private Coaching & Groups:
We offer private coaching sessions and classes for individuals and
groups. For more information please see Our
