There are discounts for groups/organizations and individuals that would like to host courses.

Live fire exercises and the shooting portion for most of our NRA courses are held at Blue Ridge Arsenal in Chantilly or SEG, Silver Eagle Group in Sterling, VA.

For our Defensive Handgun courses including the 1-2 day Dynamic Focus Shooting, Fundamentals of Defensive Carry and our Fundamentals of Home Defense Handguns courses, we utilize private property in Manassas, Purcellville, and or King George as well as shooting and hunt clubs in VA, MD, WV, and PA.

Our Mission

IDS focuses on teaching intuitive defensive handgun skills that lend themselves to efficiently handling a firearm in ways that are congruent with the body’s natural reactions under stress. This methodology allows us to better prepare our students for situations where drawing a firearm is a possibility.
