- About Us
Have you ever been interested in firearms training but were unsure how or where to start? Are you looking to increase your skills and put them to the test in various scenarios? Do you have a family plan in the event an active shooter attack happens in public or even a Home Invasion Plan?
Well look no further! Family Firearms Academy offers a complete curriculum of Premier Firearms Instruction from the very basic fundamentals of shooting geared for the novice all the way through advanced specialized classes such as shooting in and around vehicles. We even have Team Tactics for Spouses and Families who want to institute a formal plan against active shooters and home invasions.
We realize that searching for the right firearms training can be exhausting and down right intimidating...BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE. In fact, you can come sample a little bit of what we offer by attending our OPEN HOUSE!
WHAT IS AN OPEN HOUSE?
Glad you asked. Our Open House is where we put on live demonstrations of the highlights for each of the firearms classes that we offer. You can see, live, just some of the skills you would learn in these classes as well as experience exactly the style in which we teach them. We understand that there are a ton of other instructors out there that are famous as well as infamous, so we are putting on this exhibit to show you what separates us from the rest. Sometimes reading online reviews are just not enough and actually seeing the instructors in action is more comprehensive.
During our Open House, we will have our lead instructors exhibit actual class instruction to a handful of student presenters, who were actually students. These students are not only regular people that have families and live busy lives everyday, but they are also current retired firefighters and law enforcement; not to mention moms and dads and spouses of all age brackets and experience.
WHERE/WHEN IS THE OPEN HOUSE?Family Firearms Academy Outdoor Training Facility (NOT PUBLIC RANGE)10155 County Road 39
The Open House is located at our newly constructed (and ongoing) Outdoor Training Facility in Duette, Florida, just 30 minutes from Lithia, Florida off of C.R. 39. Our classes are held within a 270 degree outdoor range, allowing all calibers up to and including 458 SOCOM. We also have strategically placed vehicles and barriers to allow for unconventional active shooter type scenarios. We are n the process of constructing a shoot-house and other urban styled structures to incorporate our Home Invasion Planning classes as well as additional scenario based shoot/no shoot training.
WILL I BE ABLE TO SHOOT THAT DAY?
After our demonstration is over, there will be FREE FOOD AND BEVERAGES for everyone that registered and attends (SO PLEASE REGISTER WITH THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE GOING - SO WE CAN HAVE A PROPER FOOD COUNT). During the time the food is being distributed, there will be various stations on the range where attendees can participate. We will have a plinking section for kids to shoot 22lr rifles and pistols at some fun engaging targets as well as other sections where the adults can test out some of the steel targets for the first time. We will also have a station where attendees can attempt to pass the CURRENT FBI SHOOTING STANDARDS TEST...and you just might win a prize!
*****PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN AMMO TO SHOOT AT OUR STATIONS. WE WILL NOT BE PROVIDING AMMUNITION. We will have some firearms available to try, if you do not have one.*****
