Firearms, amunition, bullets and shooting targets

Our mission is to create an environment around firearms, that reduces the fear of operating guns, and minimizes negligence. Safety is our priority, as we strive to increase our student's confidence, knowledge and abilities through interactive firearms training.

The Basic Pistol Course is ideal for novice shooters and those who haven't used firearms in a while. It emphasizes safety, confidence-building, and teaches necessary techniques for safe firearm ownership and usage. The course includes classroom instruction, practical application, evaluation, and a range qualification shoot.


* These courses meet the requirements for Virginia's Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) and Maryland's Handgun Qualification License (HQL).

The Refresher Pistol Course is a 4-hour program designed for students who have completed formal training but haven't fired a firearm in the past year. This course rebuilds your firearm safety mindset, hones your skills and knowledge, and boosts your confidence for better range time. It includes classroom instruction, practical application, and range shooting.



The Concealed Carry Course is an advanced pistol training program. This 10-hour course focuses on teaching participants the proper techniques for drawing from a concealed carry holster and engaging targets. The curriculum covers topics such as Safety and Accountability, Concealed Carry Rules/Reminders, Defensive Marksmanship/Mindset, and more.


Prior completion of Freedom 1 Security’s Basic Pistol Course is a prerequisite. Participants are required to bring their own compact or full-size semi-automatic pistols and should have a reliable "kydex" appendix and/or Outside the Waist-Band hip holster designed for their specific firearm.

Hourly Marksmanship Instruction is an opportunity to enhance and maintain your shooting abilities. Clients must know firearm safety rules and be somewhat comfortable with basic firearm operations. We'll have a quick phone call prior to meeting to discuss a training plan that meets your objectives, with adjustments made on the range if needed.
