Real-world training taught by police officers who have personally had deadly-force encounters.



Here at Texas Republic Firearms Academy, each of our lead instructors is a former law enforcement officer who has personally had multiple deadly force encounters. Since each has experienced many “shoot, don’t shoot” situations, our training is intensely real-world and practical.

DSC02012Outcomes Oriented.  We are here to help you develop practical firearm self-defense abilities; weapon proficiency, skills in self-defense tactics, confidence building, a plan for ongoing training, and guidance to help you establish your personal ‘rules of engagement.’

We focus on you, and what you need.

We want you to be able to do more than survive a violent attack. We want you to live without fear, and yet be situationally aware and ready. We want you to enjoy a life of calm readiness, matched with sound judgment.  The outcome we help you achieve is self-reliance, so even if you are alone, you are prepared and ready to roll into any situation. 

DSC02021bTraining Objective.  We want more for you than the ability to punch holes in a paper target or pass a test.  Our mission is to equip you to “win” decisively, even against multiple attackers.

Personalized Training.  All of our classes are small in size to facilitate hands-on training and personalized attention. One-on-one private instruction is also available.

DSC02029Classes Offered. We have four levels of classes. These range from classes designed for beginners with no experience to advanced tactical training for law enforcement officers.

We offer both general-skill courses, as well as classes that focus on specific types of firearms or scenarios. This includes self-defense handgun (beginner to advanced), tactical shotgun (aka/ home defense shotgun), tactical rifle (SBR, carbine, and battle rifle classes), rural defense (long-range rifle shooting), 1-gun and 2-gun close quarter battle (CQB), ranger (travel) skills, vehicle assault and defense, as well as scenario-driven training for active shooter situations, church safety teams, and defense tactics for disaster responders.

We support the law enforcement officers, firefighters, and other first responders who sacrifice so much to keep us safe.  We are happy to provide tuition discounts for them and their spouses.
