Frequently Asked Questions

What is different about Xtreme Tactical Defense from a normal shooting range?

Paper targets don’t move or fight back! Our training courses were designed by self defense experts, law enforcement and military special operations units.  Our instructor team is comprised of highly experienced veterans of military and law enforcement and self defense experts.  The techniques and methods have been proven effective under combat conditions.  Unlike a standard shooting range we train in an open dynamic environment that realistically simulates a real world threatening encounter from pre-fight indicators thru the fight, and post fight legalities.   A CCW permit makes you legal to carry a firearm and gives you the right – but NOT the ability; Xtreme Tactical Defense courses can help make you capable of using it to adequately protect yourself and others.

What is the minimum age for participants?

Participants in the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced courses must be at least 18 years of age, or 15 years of age with a parent or guardian attending the same class.  Participation in Combat PistolCarbine courses must be at least 18 years of age.
