Whether you are a first time firearm user, recreational shooter, competitive shooter or seasoned professional, we want to help you achieve your desired level of confidence and ability with an excellent experience.
Conveniently located on the VA/WV border just 90 minutes from the DC metropolitan area.
Shadow Hawk Defense offers basic, intermediate, and advanced educational courses in pistol, rifle, and shotgun. We also offer various courses to satisfy CCW requirements. Beyond firearms training, other courses offered are Defensive Tactics, CQB (room clearing), bounding and extracts of disciplines taught to the security contractors we host and train. Competitive shooting matches are held weekly. These include 2 gun, sanctioned USPSA, Outlaw matches, sanctioned Steel Challenge, and Airsoft matches. Spectators are welcome at matches, free of charge.
As a responsible firearms owner we understand your obligation and commitment to keeping your skills sharp in order to maintain proficiency and safety. Indoor ranges are fine for developing basic skills, but nothing matches the effectiveness of comprehensive defensive and dynamic training on our outdoor ranges, in our shoot house and in our defensive tactics room.
The Shadow Hawk Defense training facility was initially created to host and train professional security contractors. Due to the high demand for civilian training, we’ve branched out to offer courses to the public.
Our staff is comprised of a deep bench of highly experienced instructors from a variety of military and civilian backgrounds and training expertise. They understand your commitment to developing and maintaining skills and are pledging their commitment of a quality education to you. Firearms training is important and serious, but we understand it also needs to be safe and enjoyable to be most effective.
We look forward to you joining us at an orientation or at one of our exciting upcoming training classes or shooting events.
