What's New?

May 2016: Celebrating 25 years in the firearms training business! The very first KR Training class was offered in May 1991.

Back from the 2016 national A Girl and A Gun conference in Marble Falls, where Tracy Thronburg and Karl Rehn taught multiple sessions every day.

April 2016: Back from the 2016 Rangemaster Tactical Conference, where KR Training graduate Kirk Clark won the live fire event, Dave Reichek placed 5th and Karl was 7th, less than 0.2 second behind Dave's time.

Classes through October now listed on our website.

March 2016: Affiliate instructor Ivan Nikolov now offering Friday and Saturday Beginner Pistol classes several times a month. These classes focus on learning shooting fundamentals with a .22 pistol.

February 2016: Another busy month with full classes coming up in March! Visits from Craig Douglas (ECQC) and Ben Stoeger (competition training) in February went well, and we are getting ready for the Rangemaster Tactical Conference in Memphis (March) and the A Girl and a Gun conference in April.

January 2016: Our busiest January in a long time. Almost every class sold out, and so far, above-average weather for winter classes. February classes mostly full, March classes filling up. We are going to add more April classes to the schedule to meet demand.
