About Ranger Focus

On a Mission To Provide Safe & Comprehensive Firearms Training

Ranger Focus is a defense firearms training organization. Shooting at a range and fighting with a handgun in a critical defense situation are two entirely different aspects of the use of a handgun. Our mission is to provide the full range of self-defense education, beginning with basic firearms training, safety, and maintenance. We will develop strong shooting skills at the range, foster strength and confidence in use, and teach the function of various aspects of firearms self-defense. Our instruction includes the all-important application of conflict avoidance and situational awareness to stay out of the use of force whenever possible. We will also teach the psychology of attack response and how to counter that response in a fighting situation.

What sets us apart is our use of laser pistol systems to provide a safe environment to practice what happens if using your firearm is the only proper response to a situation. In any self-defense training system, we'll help you practice hundreds of repetitions to make the movements natural and subconscious. This process is more complex with pistols or rifles because of the dangerous nature of a projectile leaving the barrel. We eliminate the projectile to create a training environment with the repetitions to develop a quick, accurate attack response. Most attacks are very close – within 15 feet – and are over in about three seconds with about three shots fired. We can give you a proper training environment, prepare your muscles, and let your mind stay in command during the fight.

Concealed carry is a community. It is our goal to establish a vibrant, healthy community of responsible gun owners, ready and prepared to take responsibility for their life and liberty. Ranger Focus is here to help you become the responsible citizen the founders envisioned during the debates for including the Second Amendment to our Constitution.

Our Core Values
