Mission Statement

  

When I founded Adkins Training Institute, my vision was to provide excellent, personalized training to assist anyone interested in pistol shooting-to advance their skills, improve their competence and make their training experience more enjoyable. I strive to assist and coach anyone with their firearm training and move them forward with their goals (and help set goals if not established). 

I continue to train and push my level of performance and I plan to always train and improve. 

Training Description

  

I offer small classes (from private lesson to small groups of 12 or less for CCW classes). Having been involved with many classes of more than 12 (up to 24 in a class) I know you cannot receive personalized attention if needed and that can easily lead to frustration- not only for the person needing additional assistance but for the rest of the class if they are more advanced. For CCW classes of more than 4 participants, there will be a second range safety officer on duty while on the range and no more than 4 people will be shooting at 1 time so we can provide assistance as needed, and oversee the safety of all.

Programs

Ladies' Only Classes

I also offer ladies only pistol training by a female instructor. Ladies sometimes experience challenges that men do not when participating in shooting sports. I can offer first-hand experience and make suggestions about how to overcome those obstacles that might arise.

SAFETY is always the main focus with all of my training. Sometimes experience leads to complacency and complacency leads to accidents (negligent discharges). I point out any breaks in the 4 basic gun safety rules to bring awareness to the participant and make it a teaching opportunity.

I also teach the mindset required to carry a firearm and situational awareness when out in public areas.

Please contact Mary and set up a class- whether you have been shooting for a long time or you are just starting- having someone as a coach is never a bad thing. 

Classes are reasonably priced so give us a try and see what you think! I hope to establish long time students when they come for training!

The Classroom is heated and air-conditioned for your comfort.  If you tend to be chilly, I would recommend a light jacket or a sweater to wear in the classroom.

We do shoot outdoors but we have a pop-up shelter if the weather is inclement.
