Welcome to Armed Citizen Solutions. We believe that nothing is more important than our Second Amendment Rights.

This begins with well organized and professional training from qualified, competent and experienced instructors.
We provide handgun training to prepare our law abiding citizens for the world we live in today. Whether you are considering purchasing a handgun, are a new handgun owner, experienced military member/ law enforcement officer or somewhere in between, we have a training program for you.
We have training programs that include basic handgun familiarization and safety, practical pistol training (combining speed with accuracy) North Carolina concealed carry certification, personal handgun defense training/planning and advanced civilian/military tactical handgun training. Once you determine your training goals, let us know. We will put you in the class that meets your needs or we will customize training to specifically meet your goals.
We are staffed by professional, experienced, instructors, who are dedicated to helping you exceed your handgun training goals. Our training instructors come from a wide range of backgrounds and instructor experience. Our instructors are a talented blend of military, law enforcement (Federal and local), NRA instructors, range safety officers and USPSA, IDPA, NRA competition match competitors.

Ladies, if you are interested in shooting or are new to armed personal defense, I would highly encourage you to visit www.glocksandheels.com You won't find a better site for our new lady shooters. This sight is designed by women, for women who have started training and are taking responsibility for their own security. You will see how they got started from the ground up. Sally, Heather and their friends discuss issues from purchasing a handgun that's right for them, training, equipment selection and training goals. They have some great pics and videos as well. Watch them shoot and you will be impressed. They have very sound, fundamental shooting technique and offer some great advice for other ladies. They are wives, moms and are motivated to train. Their skills have progressed at an amazing pace. It can be intimidating for ladies to break into shooting for sport or personal defense. See how they did it. Check out this site and/or contact them and see how they jumped into training with both feet. What could be more cool than chicks with guns!!Here is a video of Sally, Heather and Kim training.

Practical Pistol Training Course
This is an 8 hour training course. The goal of this class is to develop speed and accuracy with your own personal defensive handgun. We will take marksmanship from the ground up starting with the basics. (safety, stance, grip, sight alignment, sight picture, breath control, trigger squeeze, recoil management and follow through.) We will also cover gun handling procedures. (the draw, magazine changes, immediate action drills, and one handed operation of you weapon.) We will develop those basic skills and apply them to multiple shots, and multiple targets. We will progress to shooting while moving and shooting while under stress. We will then shoot several very challenging scenarios for score. It is my intent to lay the groundwork to produce an excellent and confident defensive shooter. The course fee is $80.00
Next training class is Saturday, August date TBD (see schedule for specific times)
North Carolina Concealed Carry
This is a state certified North Carolina Concealed Carry Class
This is a 9 hour training class and when successfully completed, will qualify the student to apply for their NC concealed carry permit.

Students are required by the state of NC to complete a written test and must shoot 30 rounds for state qualification. The course fee is $110.00.
This is a professional training course. If you want to recieve training from an amateur shooter/ instructor in the back room of a gunshop, a rented hotel conference room or basement, this is not the class for you.

Next training class is Saturday, July 19th, 2014.( See schedule for times)
Armed Personal Defense Training Course
This is an 8 hour training course that is designed to teach the students to use their brains as well as their handguns to defend themselves and survive in our most common environments, (in your home, in your car and in public places). We will spend about 3 hours in the classroom defining the threat and introduce the students on ways to defeat that threat. We will discuss the combat mindset and ways to tilt the fight in your favor. When it comes to a fight for your life, never fight fair. We will look at ways to stack the deck in your favor when the opponent is, armed, bigger, stronger and faster. You need to change the dynamics of a fight and regain the initiative to win, no matter who is in the fight. Many other training courses discuss ways to survive the best case scenario, we are going to train to win the worst case scenario under the worst circumstances. We will then move to the live fire range and shoot several scenarios to re-enforce the classroom training. Students will train in the “house” that contains 3 rooms, 2 hallways and 3D reactive targets. We will also live fire from inside and around a car and a public shooter live fire scenario. The course fee is $150.00. We only run this course 4 times a year and are limited to 20 students per class, so reserve a seat today.
The next class is May 17th, 2014. Contact us for seat reservations/dates (see schedule for specific times)
