what we do
"Owning a handgun doesn't make you armed any more than owning a guitar makes you a musician."
Col. Jeff Cooper
You own or are considering owning a firearm for personal protection. Whether you are thinking Home Defense and/or Concealed Carry you NEED education on how to effectively use this tool. Our Mission is to provide comprehensive firearms and personal protection instruction using highly trained, experienced instructors. Gladio Ferit is about teaching the fundamentals needed to effectively utilize a handgun or other firearms as tools of self defense while teaching the mindset necessary to survive a potentially lethal encounter.
