Mission Statement

Home  /  Current Page

The owner and instructors at the Lethal Weapons Training Academy believe in the honest citizen’s right to firearms. We also believe it is the duty of all honest citizens to protect themselves and their loved ones from the predatory criminals that walk the streets of America.

An increased number of states are allowing honest citizens to carry a weapon concealed for protection. The courses we offer are designed to prepare the responsible, adult gun owner to handle their weapons in a safe and effective manner under all circumstances.

We believe that for training to be of any benefit it must be interesting, stimulating, and realistic. We believe that in times of peril and stress, you will do what you were trained to do, and what you practiced for. We are firm believers in the training attitude of “train the way you live, live the way you train.”

To this end, we will tell you that we are not the biggest nor the fanciest, but offer you some of the most thorough training in firearms techniques that you can find. We do not offer fancy steps, or unique guns and techniques. We don’t offer knife, rope, driving, or EMT tactics.

What we do offer is time-proven gun tactics, gun techniques and a training staff of the most dedicated trainers you will meet. We won’t tell you that we were spec ops, law enforcement, or anything else just to impress you. We will let our training impress you.

If you desire to learn how to use your firearm in a safe and efficient manner, without all the hype and macho attitude, without being made to feel insignificant because you are not some kind of a warrior, try us out. We think you’ll be pleased.
