Handling a gun is a huge responsibility. Are you up for learning how to be safe and mature with your firearms?

This course takes shooters from the basics all the way through the defensive use of the handgun in a safe and controlled environment. If you have never touched a gun before or haven't shot in a long time, this is the course for you. Class size is kept small, and there is a very high instructor-to-student ratio, so this course feels like a semi-private lesson. In addition to combat handgun skills, you will also train in our police/military shoot-houses

Your training will include safe gun handling, marksmanship, holster presentations, controlled pairs, tactical and emergency reloading, after-engagement actions, engaging multiple opponents, shooting while moving, and basic house-clearing techniques.

We train out of the Burro Canyon Shooting park in Azusa (which is approximately 40 minutes east of downtown Los Angeles). The Burro Canyon Shooting Park is an outdoor range in the Angeles National Forest—so you can expect stunning views and lots of fresh air. No lead-filled environment or cramped shooting bays! Most of the Burro Canyon Courses include LIVE-FIRE houseclearing ops using the police and military shoothouse (the same twelve-room shoothouse that LAPD trains at).

Come to ADE to start your training today.
