Our overarching objective is to mentor each student to reach their potential, whether coming to us to learn safe concealed carry techniques in our NRA Defensive Pistol classes, attending one of our classes to become certified as an NRA Instructor, or taking any of our custom developed training.

If you're wanting to learn how to kick down doors in a foreign country, we aren't for you. If you want professional training from Instructors with nothing to prove, who's philosophy is that a firearm is a tool of last resort and the mental aspects of critical incidents are every bit as important as firearm skills, please check out our class offerings.

For those coming to us to take an NRA Instructor class, the end of the class is not the end of our relationship. We mentor our Instructors so that they can provide the best possible training to their students while they run a successful business in order to continue to provide that level of training.

Our training philosophy is that firearms are a tool of last resort when other measures to avoid or diffuse a dangerous situation have failed. Having a strategic plan minimizes the likelihood of having to employ a firearm.

Criminals tend to be very opportunistic, selecting victims that they believe to be unaware and unprepared. Our training courses are designed to teach you how to avoid the appearance of being an easy target for criminals and how to react if one does target you.

Firearms are a critical tool for self-protection. If you are unprepared to use one, you are increasing the chance for a very bad outcome by having one. Our courses teach safe firearm handling and proficiency, designed to lead to a comfort and confidence level needed to include a firearm as part of your personal, family, and business protection strategic plan.

"Outfitters" in our name captures the aura of the old-world outfitters that expertly equipped people going on trips into the unknown with everything from knowledge to firearms. They made certain that all items were appropriate for both the journey and the person. Strategic Outfitters takes this same holistic approach to equipping you for self-protection by encompassing everything from training to sale of firearms.
