What makes RF’s Firearms / Training unique is that while we hold titles such as Instructor, Trainer, and Training Counselor, we take more pride in the fact that we know what it takes to train our students in the SAFE and EFFECTIVE use of firearms in shooting sports and self defense.  We have real world experience, and…

Concealed Carry Deadly Weapon Class

Interactive Scenario Based Simulation Training!

If you own a gun for personal and/or home defense, the need to practice is critical. Going to the range to shoot at paper targets is necessary to acquire certain shooting skills but that’s not enough to prepare yourself for a potential life or death shooting incident.

Our Interactive Scenario Based Simulation Trainer presents a variety of interactive video simulations depicting such life threatening possibilities as home invasions, muggings, carjackings, and more. It also includes interactive videos to practice shoot / don’t shoot (threat assessment) scenarios – FBI’s Hogan’s Alley type scenarios, moving steel and gun range targets for sight picture, stance, and grip practice, and even the Tueller Drill.

Simulation training applications improve performance, save lives and can compress the time required to develop skills. In some cases, simulators can even provide more effective training than live fire can.

Our simulation trainer will work with a SIRT pistol, your own pistol (most common calibers), or even your AR-15 ! It is available as standalone training, or optionally as an addition to our Home Firearms Safety, Defensive Pistol, Personal Protection, and Women’s Handgun and Self Defense Fundamentals courses. (Details in links, or the drop down menu at the top of this page.)


Interested in Pistol Marksmanship Simulator Training?  This training is useful for beginners, as well as experienced shooters.  You can use either a simulator pistol, or your OWN pistol with the simulator.  The simulator is capable of presenting basic shooting, as well as advanced timed drills, including reloading, automatic scoring, and calling multiple targets.

For more information, go to the Marksmanship Instruction menu near the top of this page, and click the Pistol Marksmanship Simulator Training tab…

Thoughts for the day…

And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth in him.

Daniel 2: 21 – 22 KJV

Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.

Isaiah 51:6 KJV

He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Matthew 11:15 KJV
