We Are Here To Serve You

At Guns and Leather our objective is to improve your defensive skills, no matter what your skill level is.  We serve armed professionals, military, and responsible citizens with a full suite of course offerings from foundational skills through advanced tactics.  The instructors at Guns and Leather Shooting Academy have diverse backgrounds from law enforcement, military, competition and private industry and are passionate in teaching students to become more effective shooters.

Private classes are available.  Additionally, all course levels can be taught personally or as a group session.  Please call 615-504-1373 to set up an appointment with an instructor.

 

Why Train With Us?

 Our goal is to deliver skill-building courses for students ranging from novice to advanced, while developing the defensive skill sets for effective performance and survival in consideration of present armed conflict reality.
Our Philosophy
Our philosophy is simple and clearly defined: to preserve our right as a free people to own and use firearms for legitimate purposes for self defense.

In accordance with that right, we emphasize and promote responsible and safe ownership of all firearms.

Our Facility
Comprehensive instruction trains both your body and your mind. That’s why we offer a unique combination of classroom and hands-on training. So you’ll learn gun safety or self defense laws, as well as how to fire a handgun. Plus, our advanced class sizes are kept to a minimum, insuring plenty of one-on-one training between instructor and student.

The G&L Shooting Academy has two dedicated classrooms suitable for learning in a relaxed environment. Equipped with AV stations, the classrooms are able to support our full spectrum of classes including armorer, instructor development, skill development, lecture, and defensive tactics. Our range facility is modern, clean, and climate controlled by HEPA  filtration.

Our Instructors
Each of our instructors have real-world based experience in either law enforcement and / or military backgrounds, providing our students a practical approach that is built upon reality based, successfully proven fundamentals.  Our instructors are not just simply “qualified” through state certifications to teach, but rather competent in their ability to effectively instruct given their wide training backgrounds and extensive career experience.  Our training program is delivered by those who want to teach; not just certify, check a box, and meet minimum legal standards.
