ANTARES DEFENSE LLC, located in the lush Greenbrier Valley of West Virginia (WV), specializes in firearms and tactics, as well as extensive security training. Our services range from individual one-on-one training to training of specialized groups. We can conduct tailored training at your location or at our private training facility. Our facility is located near Lewisburg, West Virginia (WV), approximately four hours from the Washington DC area.
What we teach: In each one of our classes, we stress techniques necessary for the safe and sustained operation of your pistol, to include concealed carry, pistol presentation, reloading, and malfunction drills. Our instructors coach the student on target acquisition, sight picture and trigger manipulation. Students will engage targets, fire from varying distances and angles, as well as learn to use cover and concealment. Our training doctrine focuses equally on developing the Gun Handling, Marksmanship, Mindset, and Tactical skills required to survive and win in defensive firearm encounters.
We could not have asked for a more positive introduction to handguns and self defense.

We thought we knew how to handle and fire our handguns for self-defense, home intrusion purposes. Boy, were we wrong…. From thoughtful insights to practical, realistic firing drills, we learned a lot, and more.
If you own handguns for self-defense purposes, and for your own safety, I strongly recommend that you consider taking one of the reality based courses at the Antares Defense facility in Alderson, WV.
Thank you, Mike! We learned a lot, and are much more confident when handling our firearms!

...that was some of the best training I have had in years, we should have had this same training before we deployed to Iraq

The training in the 'shoot house' was pretty intense; my heart was pounding the entire time.
Now I feel comfortable enough that if something should happen, I won't have a reason to panic, I'll just respond like we were taught.
It was an absolute Blast! ...Thanks again..
