Firearms Training Central went live in March of 2017. In our first 9 months online, we have built the largest directory of Firearms Instructors on the internet which includes over 700 active firearms instructors in all 50 states and 8 countries. We have created a place where instructors can advertise their business on a 2nd Amendment friendly platform that believes in the vital importance of firearms training for safety, protection, and the defense of our rights. We have also developed an exciting new set of tools on our site that allows instructors to post upcoming classes and allows students to conveniently search for and find instructors and classes in their area. But we are not done!
Below you will find an outiline of our 2018 Roadmap that defines our goals for the coming year. We encourage you to provide your feedback to us, both on our goals and on our performance so far.
