What To Expect


Call us 'old fashioned.' We do not have on-line registration and we do not accept credit cards, Apple Pay, PayPal, etc. Personal or business checks are fine. We do not sell or share our contact list. All business is conducted on a confidential basis. There are public figures or other high profile persons who seek training but may prefer that the general public not know that they even own firearms. When appropriate we are committed to honoring this trust.


You train with Randy Cain. He NEVER sends a surrogate instructor to take his place in a "bait and switch"


Our schedule is updated on a continual basis. Should you have an interest in hosting a class and/or coordinating a class in your local area, please do not hesitate to contact us. Private or semi-private courses may be custom tailored to the individual needs of the client.


We believe that fundamentals are the cornerstone of survival and everything is built on basics.

There are no advanced techniques. The so-called 'advanced' shooter merely executes the basics a bit better or quicker and if any shooter wants to improve his shooting, he does so only by understanding the basics at a deeper level.

"The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental."
- John Steinbeck
