Owner and Texas-native Mike Davis and the NRA-certified instructors at Extreme Defensive watch over range members and educate patrons in the principles of effective marksmanship and responsible possession during small group courses. Amid 24 forest-green range stalls, shots ring out from the hands of shooters as they pierce target papers and warn standby target papers of the workday they're about to have. Firearms training courses imbue marksmen with proper handling and safety skills, and the 10-hour Texas Concealed Handgun License certification course taught by Mike—himself a concealed-handgun-license holder—helps students satisfy application requirements.
