Firearm training: Zero Points Down Academy

Zero Points Down Academy Firearm Training

Man has been using weapons for hunting and self defense for about 500 000 years. The modern firearm is simply a technological improvement on the tools used so long ago. And the notion of defense is what underlies our training.

Law abiding citizens will acquire weapons for three basic reasons; hunting, sport shooting and self defense. Every program commences with safety and basic defensive shooting techniques. Shooters that want to develop new skills can choose from a range of advanced courses in our defensive firearm and advanced sport shooting series.
