Civilian Courses

  • We at the Schenck Shooting School believe that all persons who legally own a firearm should be properly trained in real world encounters. Our philosophy is that advanced tactics are the basics mastered. It doesn't matter how "high speed" your tactics are, if the basics aren't mastered, you are not going to hit your target. We focus on mastering the basics, building that foundation, and then applying that foundation to tactics that maximize winning lethal force encounters.
  • Based on our philosophy, The Schenck Shooting School is able to provide cost effective, real-world, up to date training for citizens. If you are a citizen concerned with home/personal protection, we have classes geared to your needs and environment at a reasonable cost.
  • We are not a military or police academy. We will challenge you, but you will not be pressured to participate in drills in which you are uncomfortable. You can learn at your own pace.
