TRAINING


Sierra 3 Group offers a full spectrum of firearms and tactical training.  Our standard courses are 2 day courses covering multiple proficiency levels of handgun, shotgun and rifle.  In addition to our standard course offerings, we offer ladies only classes and the option of tailoring our training to fit the needs of your department, organization or group.

NEW COURSE FORMAT

Sierra 3 Group is pleased to announce the addition of 1 day format courses to accommodate students who cannot dedicate a full weekend to training.  Instead of our standard format of two 9 to 10 hour days and ammunition requirements nearing 1000 rounds, the 1 day course teaches the same concepts and skills in a condensed, relaxed format with a lower round count.
