Private Ranges

image12

We have built two private ranges so we never have to share space with anyone else.  This allows us the opportunity to do any training we would like and take all the time we need.











Check out our other company at

www.houston-tactical.com

for other training options including military, SWAT and other amazing instructors.

All of our classes are taught by women in a professional, relaxed and non-intimidating atmosphere.

We have worked hard from the beginning to ensure that Red Dawn Training is a comfortable place to get all the training you need.  One student said, "My wife and I went to the Basic Pistol Class and the CHL class on--.  We had a great time.  Cathi and Michelle were very good in the class room as well as the gun range.  We learned a lot in a very relaxed and easy going atmosphere.  I really liked the emphasis that they put on safety.  They not only taught it but you could see it in everything they did.  Thanks again, ladies."

This is a basic/refresher handgun class that will cover firearm safety, parts of semi-automatics & revolvers, types of ammo, as well as how to shoot properly:  stance, grip, trigger control, sight alignment/sight picture, etc.  If you are not 100% confident with your pistol, this class is for you!

The $75 registration fee covers the class, range time and targets.

You will need to provide 50 rounds of ammunition for your handgun (we have pistols to rent) and protection for your eyes and ears.

While at the range the following clothing recommendations are designed to protect you from hot brass expended during firing:

Basic Self Defense

Our approach to self defense is based on Real-World tactics that work.  With years of Martial Arts Training and Fighting, it becomes apparent that some techniques work and many others do not.

We will teach you the simple techniques that work.  These are the techniques that our Special Warfare Units are taught to protect themselves in real world combat situations.

Basic Self Defense is a 3 hour course which includes basic methods of self defense and or escape in the event of an attack.  The cost is $50 per student or $85 for two attending together.

Individual Private classes

One on one private classes are available with Michelle and can be in Manvel or Brazoria.  Cost for these classes are $99 per 2 hours.  These classes can cover basic handgun instruction or intermediate instruction covering drawing from a holster.  Precision and defensive instruction is also available.  Private youth classes are $50 an hour.  These classes are available by appointment only.

Group Private classes

We will do private classes for groups of at least 6 or more.  Just remember that our weekends get booked up a month or two in advance, so let us know a ballpark date as soon as you can and we will pencil it into the calendar.

Yesterday 9 of us ladies took "Girls with Guns 101" with Michelle and Cathi.  we LOVED the class and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn more about handguns!  So, don't put it off any longer, put your fears aside and sign up for the next class.  You will be so glad you did!  A special thanks to Michelle and Cathi for being the BEST and most patient instructors.  You will be seeing more of me in the future!
