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.

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.
