Programs
First Time Shooter – Introduction to Shooting “I’ve Never Shot a Gun Before!”

We cater to the beginner shooter, as they haven’t had time yet to develop bad habits. We have specific programs to make shooting fun, not a chore. Our live-fire interactive range allows you to learn in a no-pressure, stress-free learning environment. Our range program allows the beginning shooter to learn the fundamental skills and how to shoot properly, including proper stance, trigger control, and firearm maintenance, and will give you the confidence to protect yourself and your family if the need arises. We encourage all our new shooters to engage in multiple sessions so that they have the confidence to perform properly with their firearm.

Experienced Shooter Training

We can train you for speed and accuracy above and beyond any other training platform. For the experienced shooter, our high tech range has skill building programs that enable shooters to increase both their accuracy and skill level. The intermediate shooter can learn how to quickly acquire targets with speedy results. Our range has both computerized image training as well as a target retrieval system that accommodates any paper target. The MILO software contains specialized computer-enhanced drills that will enable even the most advanced shooter to improve his/her shooting. Our computerized timing and accuracy calculating system will fine tune and enhance your skills above and beyond your competition.

Law Enforcement Officer Training

Do you need to practice for your annual qualification? Our state of the art facility was engineered and built with experienced law enforcement officers in mind. Our MILO range catalog contains over 800 interactive scenarios and skill building exercises. Active and retired police officers, police agencies, etc. can utilize our facility to maintain and enhance their skills and knowledge base. Some of our scenarios include: active shooter, domestic disturbance response, car stops, deescalation training (laser, taser, and OC spray), non-lethal to lethal use-of-force, practice for annual PD agency qualifications, and all levels of specialized training.
