Welcome to the Texas  Defense & Firearm Training, LLC. website.


We Are All About the Training

Welcome to the Texas Defense & Firearm Training, LLC. website. We are a veteran owned company that focuses on various home defense and firearm safety training courses. We believe training is a path. We want to  cultivate your own training program, at your own speed. 

Our training is not all about firearms, it is about taking steps in our lives so we do not have to use force to defend ourselves. Instructing situational awareness, first aid fundamentals, countering a mass shooter threat, and developing a personal and home defense plan, we want our students to learn how to detect threats before they act. These courses do not require firearms or any weapons of any kind. 

Those who do want to learn how to use firearms to protect themselves, it is more than just getting a LTC (License to Carry) and you are ready to deal with any threat. LTC is just a license to carry, not a license you know how to use your firearm. There is so many things to learn and you need to know what you can do and how you will react if force is needed to defend yourself. We want to be your partner in your defense program, we want to show you how to train and practice so you will be effective in your own defense.
