Shooting for the beginner can be very intimidating and there is quite a bit to learn when picking up a firearm for the first time. Prior to that, you need to know all the rules of safety and then the basic fundamentals of marksmanship.
The training curriculum we develop is designed specifically for those who are just beginning. We do our best recognize your individual skill level and adapt to it to ensure you do not miss anything and are able to get the maximum out of our courses. Even if it takes a bit of remediation, we're there with you to make you the best you can be.
We will not let you feel out of place or you that don’t belong. We will do our best to ensure you learn what you came for and that you'll also have fun doing so. We want you to find yourself having fun while learning skills that may one day just save your life or the life of a loved one.
We listen to our students and customize the training to meet their needs. If you are a beginner, we already have the curriculum in place to give you a head start and shooting safely by the end of your first class. If you would like for us to customize your class to include a specific firearm or if you want more advanced training, we can accommodate you.
We do our best to accommodate everyone, as long as it can be done safely. TSDS provides structured training that builds upon each level, starting at beginner class where prior training is not required beyond knowing the basic firearms safety.
