Randy Cain will be your trainer, period. We don’t use surrogates or substitutes.
You will get the one-on-one instruction you need to improve significantly in your course.
We respect our students’ privacy and conduct all business on a confidential basis. We do not sell or share our contact list. Some of our students, including public figures, high profile people, those working in gun-hostile environments, and others simply don’t want the general public to know they even own firearms. They trust us to keep their confidences, and we are committed to honoring that trust.
We update our course schedule on a continual basis. Please check it often for upcoming courses. If you’re interested in hosting and/or coordinating a class in your local area, please contact us. We also provide Private Tutorials for individuals and groups, tailored to the clients’ specific needs and desires.
We accept personal or business checks for deposits, and the same or cash for the balance of tuition paid on site. We do not accept credit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal, Venmo, etc. Call us old fashioned in this regard – we’re good with that.
We believe that fundamentals are the cornerstone of survival, and that progressively better defensive shooting must be built on solid fundamentals.
There are no advanced techniques. The so-called 'advanced' shooter merely executes the basics a bit better and/or quicker. Shooters wanting to improve their performance to this level do so only with a more thorough understanding and execution of the basics.
"The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental."

Randy Cain has been teaching and elevating the performance of his students for nearly four decades. He has trained with many of the country's most recognized and acclaimed instructors and taught with and for the elite pioneers of tactical training instructors. He is honored to be one of only three people in the world to hold instructor certification from Louis Awerbuck and Yavapai Firearms Academy having coordinated and/or hosted YFA classes for 20 years. It was Louis Awerbuck who persuaded Randy to start his own mobile training business.
Randy was a Rangemaster and Staff Instructor at Gunsite for eight years, including duty as an instructor in the highly esteemed Masters Series classes with Gunsite founder Jeff Cooper. Randy's service as a police patrol officer, SWAT team member, and training officer shaped his approach to range training with lessons learned from the harsh realities of the streets.
Randy encourages open minds and critical thinking, but he's not much for the fads that come along in the training world. He focuses on solid, time-tested fundamentals and embraces tactics evolved over time through actual armed confrontations. His experience and discerning eye combine to provide each student with relevant and highly effective training, resulting in improved student performance.
