This class will expose you to the issues surrounding the use of force in defense of self or another, up to and including the use of possibly lethal force.  Through the use of simulation training, you will acquire real world situational awareness and experience in the split-second decision-making required to effectively use your observation,  orientation and your weapon to defend yourself and others.  You will also receive an overview of the possible legal ramifications of the use of force, including civil and criminal issues, the so-called “castle doctrine”, and use of force in defense of property.  You will have the opportunity to participate in question and answer sessions with sworn peace officers and prosecutors/defense counsel regarding the training you receive and the legal issues arising from the use of force. 

Discounts for Law Enforcement and military on tactical training. Discounts also are available for educators. Call for more information - 602-920-1153

FAST was founded in 2010 with the intent of providing the very best in firearms instruction in Arizona.  We pride ourselves in our professionalism, customer service, and commitment to safety.  FAST is fully licensed and insured.

Our professional and qualified staff are customer oriented and have the skills, experience, ability, and desire to get the job done.  Our limited class size will ensure our staff will be able to provide more one-on-one instructions and quality training to our students.  Premium firearms instruction and customer satisfaction are our #1 priority and we promise to deliver!

Do you want to learn to shoot your handgun quickly and effectively?  Do you want to learn how to handle your firearm efficiently and safely, using fast and proper techniques?  If your answer is yes to both questions, then come spend some time with us at FAST.  

When selecting a firearms training school, quality should never be compromised.  Anyone can get an instructors certificate by just taking a class, but what knowledge and experience come with it?  Do they have actual experience in the topics they are teaching or have they simply acquired a bunch of “certificates”?  Anyone can teach you how to shoot but it’s WHEN to shoot that really counts.  Our qualified and professional staff are current law enforcement officers with over 24 years experience on the job.

FAST offers an assortment of firearms training classes, for all levels of mastery, ranging from Basic Pistol, CCW (Carry of Concealed Weapon), tactical defensive handgun, Shooter’s Challenge, basic and tactical Rifle, and basic and tactical shotgun.

On April 21, 2010, FAST completed the purchase of a Firearms Simulation System for use in training both Law Enforcement and Civilians and Fast is currently the only firearms training company in Arizona to offer portable judgmental, shoot no shoot training utilizing LE Laser Shot LE branching scenarios.   We also provide civilian branching scenarios in our CCW, Pistol I and other selected courses.  Laser Shot training solutions are employed by thousands of military and law enforcement agencies around the world everyday. Unique solutions enable progressive training from realistic laser-based engagements to ultra-realistic live-fire exercises.
