. About FAST DFW .


 FAST DFW is Firearms Academy & Shooter Training of Dallas Fort Worth.

We offer qualification classes for Texas LTC (License To Carry A HFAST DFW For LTC (formerly CHL) Classes, Personal Safety & Firearms Trainingandgun, formerly CHL), NRA courses, and basic tactical training, so whether you want to qualify for your LTC or improve your firearms skills; or if you or your family members (12yrs+) simply need to learn how to safely handle a handgun, rifle, or shotgun ~ FAST DFW can help. We also offer crime prevention/personal safety seminars designed for unarmed adults, and metallic ammunition reloading classes.

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 results. (For example, 100% of our CHL students qualified ‘first time’.)

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.
Women Are Welcome At FAST DFW
Women Shooters:

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 Classes and also the LTC Classes pages.

FAST DFW’s Cancellation Policies:
Note ~ Fees are nonrefundable*

Keeping our classes small means they fill quickly and we often have a waiting list. When you register for a class you will receive an invoice which can easily be paid online. Prompt payment is appreciated and also guarantees your place in class. Please note - If we have not received payment at least seven days in advance of your chosen class date (or within 24 hours of receipt of the invoice, if booking late) we will be forced to cancel your registration. (It may also cause the cancellation or postponement of the class.)*

We understand life can get in the way, but if you have to cancel please give us as much advance notice as possible by emailing us at or phone us at (972) 523-2865. Given enough notice we may be able to provide a credit towards a suitable FAST DFW class held within the next six months:
Canceling more than seven days in advance of class date: 100% credit of  prepayment.
Between seven & three days (72+ hours) notice in advance of class start time: 50% credit.
Less than three days (72 hours) notice, or ‘no show': No credit.

*FAST DFW reserves the right to cancel/postpone any class at any time for any reason, though of course we do our utmost to avoid doing so.  Occasionally the weather is too bad or we don’t hit our minimum public class size (4 students). We will notify any affected students asap and transfer them to other classes if possible. If transfering/postponing isn't possible we will provide the affected students with their choice of a 100% credit or refund of their pre-paid fee for that class.  Please allow seven days to process a refund.
