A quality range is more than just a backstop for your bullets. A QUALITY range helps you to be a better defensive shooter by allowing you to train REALISTICALLY.


Defensive Gun Training:

How to find a range where you can practice REALISTIC skills.

One of the common questions that students ask at the completion of a Safety Solutions Academy firearms course is, “Where can I practice the defensive gun skills I just learned in class?”

It is a great question, but it isn’t as easy to answer as the students or I would like.  Most shooting ranges DON’T allow shooters to practice in a realistic manner and finding a range that understands and is willing to allow you to train can be a real problem.

You see, there are all kinds of reasons that shooting ranges restrict the behaviors of shooters.

  • Ignorance
  • Insurance
  • Past negative experiences
  • Overzealous attorneys
  • Monetization

The list is probably much longer than that, but I hope you get the point.  It really comes down to the fact that there are few ranges that allow folks to train in a realistic manner.  I’m very lucky that the training facility I’m associated with allows me to do what I need to do as a defensive firearms instructor.  The freedom I have at the range is one of the reasons students travel from all over the state of Ohio to take Ohio CCW Courses with Safety Solutions Academy and a strong motivator for folks to travel from around the nation to take more advanced courses like our Critical Defensive Handgun course with Safety Solutions Academy.

You probably don’t need a range as robust as the facility that Safety Solutions Academy partners with, but you do need a quality range.  Keep in mind that you can always travel to train with Safety Solutions Academy in NE Ohio.
