Why Train With Us

The sole mission of Sacramento Firearms Training is to provide the best, real-world training and education available for those who wish to learn to shoot or improve their shooting skills.

Without proper firearms training you might end up reinforcing bad habits and never making any significant improvement.

Even worse, after purchasing a handgun you might place it in a drawer by the bedside, thinking you are adequately prepared to defend yourself... until you hear that fateful ‘bump’ in the night.

Our courses of instruction will give you confidence in the use of your firearms and prepare you to make 'real world' choices if you need to defend yourself or your loved ones.
