Survival Skills are learned Through Hands-on Training
For more than 21 years, GPS, LLC, offers the most intensive and comprehensive firearm and sniper school training in the country. We combine our experience teaching military, law enforcement, and the most high-end private schools to provide the best courses and tactical shooting skills available anywhere.
We believe that every person has the right to defend themselves and their loved ones from attack with whatever force is necessary within the limits of the law.
We also believe that the average (untrained) person is incapable of mounting an effective defense without appropriate training and dedicated practice.
Many forms of self-defense training take years to achieve a level of proficiency. Although beneficial on many levels, that kind of training will not be of much use in the short term.
Our instructors are drawn from many professions, not just military. All share the common goal to bring quality training to the novice and advanced gun owner in Phoenix, Arizona.
What We Teach
We, at GPS, can teach you combat proven and simple techniques using logically progressing skills. You can experience the confidence that comes with learning the proper tactical skills and psychological mindset necessary to handle yourself in a crisis or attack.
Our proven approach to Tactical Weapons Training builds on a strong foundation in safety and basic skills. People quickly advance under our staffs’ expert guidance.
GPS Sniper School utilizes Cowtown Range in Peoria, Arizona for all courses. This facility offers a true 360-degree range in an inclusive training environment that allows seclusion and safety while maintaining a practical distance from urban amenities. This facility also is set up to enable unique training scenarios as some classes may require.
Cowtown Ranges is a carefully planned and laid out property that allows us to train from multiple locations, including established and covered firing lines, within steps of our air-conditioned classroom.
Cowtown Range is separated into two major sections: The “back side” of the property allows for a 100 and 200-yard range, “Iraqi” village, moving targets, multiple unknown steel target ranges, high angle shooting, many stalk lanes, and urban training in any one of many houses. The “front side” allows for a 100, 200, and 300-yard range, a multiple room shoot house, a 25-yard pistol/carbine bay, high angle shooting, moving targets, and more!
Many of the functions of both sides of the property are similar; this is based on our need to train multiple military and government units at the same time due to our popular training program.
