Major Defense was started to promote personal safety and firearms training.  The goal for our personal safety courses is to help you develop the knowledge necessary to enact effective safety strategies for your home, auto, place of business, shopping or around your neighborhood and city. The goal of our firearm courses is to provide you with the knowledge, skills, and attitude to safely handle your firearms and improve your shooting skills.

We are instructor certified by the National Rifle Association (NRA)and the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) as well as being members of the Association of Defensive Shooting Instructors (ADSI).

We have trained hundreds of students from the Tampa Bay area.  We aren't the cheapest, and we don't just sign your certificates and send you on your way.  We provide quality instruction, give you a great value for your money, and at the end of the day provide you with the tools to be responsible armed citizen.

Learning to safely handle and shoot a handgun is your responsibility if you own one.  Taking a Major Defense Basic Pistol class will accomplish this and using your certificate you can apply to receive your Concealed Carry License (CCL) if eligible.  Having a CCL brings a whole new set of responsibilities and the consequences of your actions, if not proper, could result in your financial loss and  loss of you freedom (read broke and in jail).  To prepare yourself, you need additional training like the NRA's Personal Protection Inside and Outside the Home or the USCCA's Concealed Carry Course and Home Defense Fundamentals.  Learn about Self Defense Insurance and how important it can be, click on the Directory link More and then USCCA.

If your faced with a critical incident you become your own and your families First Responder.  Get it right, get trained now.
