Why VALIDUS is Different.

Regardless of who we train in firearms safety and usage, we believe what makes us different – beyond our elite background, real-world experience or unique training program – is how we connect with each student, client or group on a personal level to provide the very best experience.  We identify your needs early, to help you reach your firearms training goals efficiently.  We teach in a way that recognizes each student’s unique learning style – so that no one is left behind and each student maximizes their full potential.

We strive to make each firearms training session a rewarding and enjoyable experience for you. Our professional instructors are friendly, approachable, and never intimidating. We are here to serve you.

Safety First.

You will not find a safer shooting environment than a VALIDUS run course or range. And, even though we are hyper-focused on safety and results during every training session, we still manage to have a ton of fun in the process.
