The Tactical Training Center is a trusted resource for firearms gear, supplies, and range training for gun enthusiasts of all ages. To promote proper firearm use and gun safety, we have our Youth Firearms Academies. These week long tactical training and safety class seek to teach your child practices for safe firearms handling, operation, and marksmanship.

These courses are available to teens aged 13-17. With a wide array of available firearms, your teen will learn the best practices for handguns, rifles, shotguns, and even muzzle loaded firearms. All firearms and range supplies will be made available by the TTC.
