How this works for you

At the Academy of Personal Defense, we believe in everyone’s right to own and possess a firearm. We have now made that process a lot easier. We still offer in-person classes but with the times the way they are, more and more people are preferring to socially distance themselves from the classroom setting and are more in favor of online training. That’s why we are proud to offer our classroom portion online in the comfort of your home! Once you complete the online training, you will make an appointment to meet with our NRA Certified Firearms Instructor. Any questions or concerns you may have will be addressed, you will show proficiency with a firearm, and then receive your certificate of completion. For those who would prefer to take a class in person, feel free to contact us for our next classroom training session.

Three main reasons to own a firearm


The exercise of a constitutional right. Nowadays, so many people confuse the difference between a right and a privilege. A privilege can be taken away from you! Your right to own a firearm is something every American is born with!


For the safety of yourself and your family! A gun in the hand of a trained individual is better than a 911 dispatcher on the phone sending a police officer any day! Precious seconds can save the life of you or someone you love. The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.


There has never been a better time! Now is the time to learn a new skill that could potentially save you or a loved one's life. When a situation rapidly evolves, it's better to have a Concealed Carry Permit and not need it, than need a CCP and not have it! Get started on the process today!
