In discussing the impetus behind The Bullet Ranch, Sales Manager Jerry Carver points out that the founders?including outdoor sportsmen, former military members, and law-enforcement officers?"saw something missing in the industry ... the absence of a welcome mat." Rather than create just another shooting range that left customers on their own, they aspired to create a friendly, unintimidating environment where the staff greets them by name. In addition to providing advice when purchasing a firearm at the shop, these specialists fix mounts and scopes via gunsmithing services and instruct students in a range of classes. These include courses geared toward shooting an automatic rifle, pistol shooting for women, and qualifying to apply for a concealed-carry license.

Urban Tactical Defense Center’s diverse team of trainers includes lifelong martial artists, former military personnel, and current police officers. Within the 8,000-square-foot facility—with two sparring rooms and a gym—these trainers pass on the self-defense and fitness techniques they acquired during their demanding careers to students of all ages, covering everything from defense tactics to proper firearms training. They rely on myriad approaches to boost health and self-confidence levels, imparting combat techniques during martial-arts and unarmed-combat classes; fending off calories in Combat Fitness Bootcamp courses; and bulking up entire bodies in circuit-training sessions. They even sprinkle meditation techniques from Chinese qi gong in some of their programs.

Alternatively, the staff leads youngsters through its own original MANTIS curriculum (Manage Any Nasty Trouble in School), acquainting them with tactics for dealing with bullies, teaching them self-defense moves, and hopefully giving them the strength to lift 12 action figures at once.
