Level 1 Firearms Instructors are shaped
and strengthened by our many communities.

National Training Experience

Our national training experience brings the best of all worlds together when teaching new students new skills. We apply training by leveraging Modern Gun Training Techniques during the training process.

The United States is very diverse and filled with many opinions on how firearms training should be taught. The thought process about guns, how to handle them, and what to do with them is as unique as the state and community you live.

Training across the United States allows us to bring the best in training to local communities, training most local instructors simply don’t have to bring to the table. This is why training with a national firearms company, with national exposure, makes sense. Our instructors are not only local to your community, but they also have access to national resources local instructors don’t have available to them.

Modern Gun Training Techniques

Level 1 Firearms Training LLC staff and instructors are oftentimes interviewed for comments about Breaking NEWS in communities and states. Our breakthrough training methods, opinions on gun violence, and our second amendment right to carry are the most sought-after topics in current events.

We Support Our Military

The folks who serve our country make many sacrifices for us, their families, and their loved ones. Long deployments to sometimes very dangerous portions of the world need to be recognized and appreciated.

Next time to meet someone who serves, who is giving up their personal freedoms to protect yours, tell them:

“Thank you for your service”
