Steven Garavuso wanted The Bullet Ranch to be different from other ranges. After a 17-year career in law enforcement, the NRA-certified pistol instructor sought to create a welcoming and inviting facility where visitors could feel comfortable and?most importantly?safe as they learned, practiced, and purchased new equipment. This dedication to a condescension-free environment permeates the center's classes, which include safety courses for various firearms as well as concealed-carry weapon training. Firearms, apparel, accessories are all available for sale, and the onsite gunsmiths lend their services by performing maintenance inspections and detailed cleanings. The Bullet Ranch also features an outdoor archery range with 10 90-foot lanes and movable targets.
1st Advance Security's instructors teach concealed-carry classes with a combination of classroom and range time. To keep things convenient, they host both day and evening classes, and they provide loaner firearms free of charge.
