During the firearm-training and gun-safety class, a retired law-enforcement officer and combat naval veteran trains firearm users in proper and current safety techniques, ensuring each student becomes familiar with rifles, handguns, and shotguns. The class also teaches personal-, home-, and family-defense techniques for protecting oneself during a home invasion.
The concealed-weapons class covers information required to obtain the concealed permit that is valid in more than 30 states. The training certificate is then used to attain the license from local law-enforcement agencies.<p>
Students of the gun safety class must bring 100 rounds of ammunition and their own firearm, while students of the concealed weapon permit class must bring their own holster, 300 rounds of ammunition and spare magazines. Students of the concealed weapon class can also bring their own weapon, though it is not required.<p>
A private, outdoor range sets the stage for about 90 percent of the material taught during Umbrella Tactics' classes. The facility allows for training in pistol, rifle, breaching-shotgun, and close-quarters-battle techniques, among others. The range also accommodates nighttime training.
For groups of 4–25, and for an additional fee, instructors can supply rental firearms such as AR-15 rifles and Beretta 9-mm handguns.

Owner Jesse Johnson understands public service better than most people. He enlisted in the Navy at 17 and has served as a police officer in three states, becoming one of the youngest chiefs of police in Montana. As a result, he's spent more than two decades serving his country, including time as a contracted agent for protection services and combat overseas, in addition to serving as an Emergency Response Team Element Commander and Quick Response Team Leader for two departments. He eventually used the encyclopedic knowledge of firearm tactics and safety he gained during his decades of service to open Umbrella Tactics. Whether it’s security training or basic firearm safety, he and his team of law enforcement and NRA-certified instructors prepare students for real-world situations.
