Since 1991, KR Training has been offering high quality, affordable firearms and self-defense courses in Central Texas. Our team of male and female instructors teach courses for all levels: beginners, average gun owners, CHL students, serious shooters, instructors and uniformed professionals.

Our instructors are a diverse team with experience in firearms training, defensive skills, competition shooting, law enforcement, military service, martial arts, and risk assessment. We've been featured in media from the Outdoor Channel and BBC network to SWAT, Gun World and Concealed Carry magazines, as well as blogs like TheTruthAboutGuns and local radio & TV. Our shooting team members are Grand Master and Master level IPSC/IDPA competitors. Many area instructors are graduates of our instructor development and advanced level courses.

What's New?

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.

December 2015: Done with classes for 2015. Thanks to everyone for another great year! Classes for January 2016 are already filling up and some February classes are already sold out.

November 2015: Our schedule for Jan-May 2016 is now online. We have partnered with Sheepdog Solutions to offer a 5 hour intermediate carbine class on Sunday, January 31.

October 2015: KR Training instructors visit CSAT for a rifle class, and heavy rains cancel Oct 24th classes.

September 2015: New mobile friendly registration and new archive section of the website now online! More 2016 classes added to the schedule.

August 2015: Hunter Safety Instructor class has sold out!

July 2015: Classes every Saturday, plus 3 day Tom Givens instructor class, plus two Tuesday night IPSC matches. Sun's out. Guns out. Come see us! Morning and weekday evening events happening in August too. The July e-news is now online.

June 2015: A busy month of classes, with the 2-day "Unthinkable" course, sold out sessions of Basic Pistol 2 and Defensive Pistol Skills 1, and two Tuesday night IPSC matches.

May 2015: May 30 classes cancelled. May 31 classes taught by Chuck Rives rescheduled for Oct 4, 2015.

Another busy and rainy month! Summer class dates and summer IPSC match dates for June, July and August added to our schedule.

April 2015: Even busier than March. Classes every weekend including a trip to the national A Girl and a Gun Conference where Penny and I (assisted by Tracy) will be guest instructors again this year.
