Comment on our CCW class:

Just a short note to say thanks for a great class and training you gave my wife at the FAST-AZ CCW course.  After your course, she feels more confident both physically and mentally when carrying her weapon.  As you know, just learning how to point and shoot a weapon at a paper target is only a small part of having a CCW.   The law and shoot/don't shoot section of your course is, my opinion,  more important and where a lot of people fall short when teaching CCW.
As a retired Phoenix Police Supervisor I observed the class from start to finish, I would also like to say it was one of the most professional private CCW class I have seen. The instructors were very well trained and the way they presented the subject matter was excellent, making the classroom part not only very informative but also interesting.
Thank you

FAST was founded in 2010 with the intent of providing the very best in firearms instruction in Arizona.  We pride ourselves in our professionalism, customer service, and commitment to safety.  FAST is fully licensed and insured.

Our professional and qualified staff are customer oriented and have the skills, experience, ability, and desire to get the job done.  Our limited class size will ensure our staff will be able to provide more one-on-one instructions and quality training to our students.  Premium firearms instruction and customer satisfaction are our #1 priority and we promise to deliver!

Do you want to learn to shoot your handgun quickly and effectively?  Do you want to learn how to handle your firearm efficiently and safely, using fast and proper techniques?  If your answer is yes to both questions, then come spend some time with us at FAST.  

When selecting a firearms training school, quality should never be compromised.  Anyone can get an instructors certificate by just taking a class, but what knowledge and experience come with it?  Do they have actual experience in the topics they are teaching or have they simply acquired a bunch of “certificates”?  Anyone can teach you how to shoot but it’s WHEN to shoot that really counts.  Our qualified and professional staff are current law enforcement officers with over 24 years experience on the job.

FAST offers an assortment of firearms training classes, for all levels of mastery, ranging from Basic Pistol, CCW (Carry of Concealed Weapon), tactical defensive handgun, Shooter’s Challenge, basic and tactical Rifle, and basic and tactical shotgun.

On April 21, 2010, FAST completed the purchase of a Firearms Simulation System for use in training both Law Enforcement and Civilians and Fast is currently the only firearms training company in Arizona to offer portable judgmental, shoot no shoot training utilizing LE Laser Shot LE branching scenarios.   We also provide civilian branching scenarios in our CCW, Pistol I and other selected courses.  Laser Shot training solutions are employed by thousands of military and law enforcement agencies around the world everyday. Unique solutions enable progressive training from realistic laser-based engagements to ultra-realistic live-fire exercises.

 I recently took the CCW course 03-12-16 and can say without a doubt that I believe anyone that has even considered carrying a weapon should take this course. No matter what your experience level is the instructors were not intimidating and made you feel comfortable. A great learning environment, extremely informative and professionally instructed. I've been around firearms most of life and realized there was plenty I never considered. The simulator was intense to say the least. I really enjoyed and learned from it in this class. I will take more classes with this first class operation of professional people.
