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.

S3G utilizes various training facilities and ranges covering over 700 acres in the Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Ft. Smith areas. These facilities allow us to train in a wide variety of environments, including but not limited to CQB, medium to long range shooting with 1,000 yard capabilities, high angle shooting positions and woodland training.

S3G can also come to you.  Any of the courses we offer can take place at your facility, provided your facility meets all S3G safety and equipment requirements.  *Additional course fees are associated with S3G travel to your facility.

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.
