We believe that gun safety should be taught starting at the earliest age and applies to everyone, whether you have firearms in your house or not. All of our classes start with a review of gun safety and are practiced throughout the class. Our goal is to not only offer shooting lessons, but all the responsibilities that accompany it.
There are no shortcuts around true fundamentals of marksmanship. It is the root of all shooting disciplines. Although the fundamentals slightly differ between handgun and rifle shooting, they both share a form of aiming, breathing, correct stance and positioning, trigger control, and follow-through. Whether your goal is hunting, recreational, competition, self-defense, military or law enforcement, or ninja warrior, your journey starts, grows and is sustained with marksmanship fundamentals.
Highly trained persons are highly responsible persons. We believe a person defaults to their level of training when firearm skills are needed or demanded in a situation. We believe perfect practice aids in skill development, not just practice. We learn good habits (or bad) through repetition and muscle memory. Do you have a training plan on how you will improve your shooting skills? Do you regularly practice dry firing techniques? Are you progressing from shooting a paper target to shooting while moving, behind cover, and with accelerated shots? Do you use a timer to train? Do you have good concentration and mental preparedness? Whether you have never fired a firearm before or you are looking to build your skills, we have something for you.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH
Marksmanship development is an art and science. A person’s mental state and attitude is a prime factor in shooting. Proper training develops neural pathways and creates a function or task that can be repeated with great skill and consistency. Confidence is created with proper mindset and repeated successes. Marksmanship in shooting is also a perishable skill if not exercised regularly.
Culture is defined as the behaviors and beliefs characteristic of a particular social, ethnic, or age group. Culture is learned and shared within social groups and is transmitted by social interaction. America has a strong history with firearms use. From our nation’s independence to our roots as an agrarian society, the firearm has always been part of our culture. We were taught by our fathers and mothers who were taught by theirs.
Perhaps for the first time in our history we have a generation of Americans who cannot teach their children how to shoot because no one has taught them. The good news is that some in this generation realize the importance of this skill and seek help. INTEGRITY FTC is here to stand in this gap. We have taught entire families including the parents with their children, and we have fun while doing it.
When people hear the term ‘personal defense’ or ‘personal protection’ some may think of martial arts or immediately of armed defense (Chuck Norris is still boss). However, personal protection actually goes much further. It involves the techniques, strategies, and mindset to avoid a confrontation first and foremost. When confrontation is unavoidable, then it is the techniques, strategies, and mindset to stop the threat and survive the encounter. INTEGRITY FTC offers numerous armed defense classes including Defensive Pistol I and II, Defensive Carbine I and II, NRA Defensive Pistol, NRA Personal Protection in the Home, and Personal Protection Outside the Home.
