Our Training Philosophy

Ministry of Defense believes that everyone who intends to possess or use a firearm needs to participate in regular training and frequent practice.  Our goal, then, is to make that training as accessible, enjoyable, trustworthy, and constructive as possible for you.

We have been there, staring down life and its many, often-overwhelming complexities: work, money, the kids' piano lessons, that funny sound the car makes when you turn the key, the dog's itchy ears...there are about a million reasons not to train, right?

That's why we are so proud of you and excited for the change this training is going to make in your life, your confidence, and your attitude.

After all, if you can cut through the excuses and seek us out, the least we can do is provide excellent training.  For us, it begins with respect for your time, goals, and inquisitiveness and ends when we deliver training that is friendly, methodical, thorough, and reliable.  And that is exactly what we do.  Along the way, we'll have some fun, share some laughs, and maybe even happen into a little bit of bonding—which is very easy to do with firearms folks.


By the end of your training session, we hope you'll think of both your firearm and your instructor as familiar old friends that you can count on.

Training Done Right

Our philosophy in action: teach you everything you need to know about handling your firearm beforehand so that when it's time to shoot, the only new element is the "bang!"
