FEAR offers a wide variety of training to our clients. Our ability to work with customers to setup classes at any location, at any time, makes us a valuable asset to your firearms education.

Training for victims of a violent crime is done at no charge.


Below are the requirements for attending any FEAR training:

Firearms Education and Readiness Training Session
