Must pay in full in advance to get the discounts.


Start your new year off right by attending one or both days of preparedness training with Paul Martin, the KR Training staff, and some special guests!

Saturday January 5 is the “everything except guns” day (Preparedness Seminar 1)- medical from Dr. Ben Weger, kubaton w/ Tracy Thronburg, fitness with John Daub, chainsaws with John Kochan, and multiple sessions from Paul on a variety of preparedness topics. $160

Sunday January 6 is the “nothing but guns” day  (Preparedness Seminar 2) – a mix of lecture, live fire and scenario training covering topics specific to preparedness, focusing on how the prepper can better assist the untrained/undertrained in their lives with gun selection, firearms skills and team tactics in an emergency.  Immersive Training Solutions will be bringing their full screen video simulator and everyone will get to run at least one scenario on that.  Paul and Karl will also run a “Get Home Bag” live fire/medical scenario that incorporates multiple skills and gear. $160

Sign up for both days, pay in full in advance and get the discounted price of $250.


We are hosting internationally known Texas-based trainer Hock Hockheim January 19-20.  The class will be a mix of training across multiple disciplines: unarmed, knife, stick, gun.  No prior martial arts training experience is necessary to attend.  The Hand, Hock, knife gun course is a bargain for 2 days at $199.


Jan 12th is beginner day, with Basic Pistol 1 and Gun Cleaning and Maintenance. Take both for the discount price of $120.

Jan 13th is “my new year’s resolution was to get my carry permit” day, with Handgun Coaching in the morning and Texas License To Carry in the afternoon.  Take both for the discount price of $100.  We do not plan to offer the LTC course very often in 2019 so those wanting to take the course from Karl should take advantage of this opportunity.

Another option for completing the carry permit training is to take the classroom portion online. We recommend the Point Blank CHL online course. Those completing the online portion can attend the Handgun Coaching course on Jan 13, which ends with the LTC qualification course of fire. That course meets state requirements for the 2 hours of in-person range time training required for the “blended” LTC course.  We are also working to develop our own online LTC course.


Another session of the state-certified Active Shooter/School Safety class is scheduled for Jan 26-27. This course is suitable for anyone interested in armed active shooter response. For this session we intend to bring Immersive Training Solutions out on day 2 so students can run the active shooter program on their full screen (indoor) video simulator.  $400 for the 2 day course. Teachers attend for half price ($200).  School administrators attend for free.


All events at the A-Zone Range unless noted otherwise
