With a highly experienced and qualified instructor staff, Diamondback Shooting Sports offers a full spectrum of training courses, so we’re confident we’ll have a course for any skill level. 

From Arizona Concealed Carry Permit courses to self defense, firearm, and knife courses, Diamondback’s instructors strive to continually offer a full spectrum of training for all skill levels, interests, and needs. Instructing on practical, contemporary weapons systems, Diamondback courses are cost-effective, informative, hands-on courses that are offered locally at our store location in two classroom training environments, or on our private outdoor range located 15 minutes from the store location. 

Our training goals are simple: we strive to make ourselves, our families, and our communities safer through professional, affordable, and attainable training and education. To quote Edmund Burke, “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Profound words, quite possibly more meaningful today than they were when penned over 200 years ago. Now is the time to do something…make the effort to get trained and educated while having fun in the process. Let Diamondback Shooting Sports help you to achieve your self defense goals.
