Test Drive

One of the worst things we see is someone in class that hates their gun. They did not get to test it before purchasing. Did you know you cannot return a firearm? Why not come try out different guns before you purchase?

Private Lessons

Let's build a custom plan and lessons based off of the skills you want to improve. You get to set up a one on one, two hour session with our instructors to work on what you need to improve.


NSD offers the best and most practical equipment. Cobratec Knives offer unsurpassed quality, while not slicing a giant hole in your wallet.  



No one brings you the latest tech like NSD. We utilize the Mantis X and Laser Academy training systems in all of our classes. We advance our own training with Mantis X. We are a proud mantis dealer.

"Josh did a great job as our concealed carry instructor. He kept the class interesting and shared a wealth of information and examples. His insights has improved my awareness. I definitely benefited greatly from being in his class and hope I can take other classes he offers. Jenni was also a huge help in making for a great experience. She had many things to contribute to the class. The amount of the behind the scenes work she does to make our end easier is immeasurable and is very much appreciated!! Thank You Josh & Jenni !!!"
