Built from a solid foundation, the company was started In September 1995, when a local businessman and two Dallas police officers incorporated the present business known as the DFW Gun Club.
The original owners believed that a market was developing for the training of private citizens in the carrying of concealed handguns under a new Texas law.
Then in May of 1998, a larger building was purchased and a large training academy was added. This new building was nearly 20,000 square feet of renovated offices, classrooms, retail sales, gym and range area. This newly acquired building was used to expand training to law enforcement, security companies and private citizens as well as job placement for security personnel. In support of this new direction, highly credentialed trainers with varying backgrounds in law enforcement and military were recruited. The company would be known as DFW Gun Club and Training Center, LLC.
In June of 2000, the Personal Safety Institute was created due to the strong demand for personal protection of domestic dignitaries, business executives, celebrities, sports figures and at-risk individuals. The Personal Safety Institute specialized in armed and non-lethal defense as well as training and staffing for personal protection details. Known for effective quality training, our dedicated trainers and programs are used by many law enforcement agencies, businesses, and security services to train and re-qualify their officers annually.
Through this solid foundation and years of growth, our staff constantly seeks out the latest in equipment evolution and training techniques, to bring you the most updated and enjoyable training, shooting and retail products experience available in the MetroPlex.
