The History of Academy Firearms Instruction!
Marc and Helen Sabin, both NRA certified instructors, started Academy Firearms Instruction in the fall of 2007. They wanted to share their love of the Constitution and the rights inherent in it. Strong Second Amendment supporters, they teach others to use firearms safely, confidently, and competently.
NOTE: Take a class as soon as possible - You never know when it will come in handy! According to our sources, ISIS has crossed the border and is targeting American and military families. The FBI and the DHS have both issued warnings about sleeper cells, lone wolf Islamic militants, and possible attacks.
Get into a class as soon as you can!
How does our concealed carry permit training save lives? One of our students was in a store that was robbed recently by an armed thug. Due to our training and learning about situational awareness, she knew what to do to protect herself and a clerk whose life she saved. She is working with law enforcement and will be an expert witness if the armed thug is ever caught. She protected herself and a third party with our training.

CONCEALED CARRY TIPS and HINTS When purchasing a gun for concealed carry (the purpose for the gun) you should consider the weight of the gun itself and the weight of the ammunition when the gun is fully loaded. Check to see if the outline of the gun or its imprint will show in your clothing. Determine how and where you will carry, and then practice drawing from that location using snap caps.
Ask yourself, can you hit what you aim at with accuracy when under stress? Take a class from AFI to learn the ins and outs of concealed carry! Ladies - contact Helen and she will show you what she does to protect herself and why it is effective personal protection.

Why are we the best training in the Springs?
1. Because we specialize in INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION! We take only 6 persons per class! We do NOT offer mega sized classes like others in the Springs. We have ONLY small, personal classes!
2. We teach gun safety and shooting skills with a "hands on" approach that is unique, innovative, and the best way to learn! From the first moment of class, you train in handling guns and developing muscle memory. This training will make you confident, competent, and capable with a firearm. We don't bore you with lectures or lots of talk. 3. All instructors are NRA certified and specialists in their fields. They are elite master instructors and all are patient and caring. We show and explain the science behind what you learn. In addition, we don't rush you. If you don't "get it" in the allotted time for class, we work with you at no extra cost after class by appointment until you are ready to go out on your own. AFI students rate the instructors as A+ due to the quality of instruction, the small classes offered, and the personalized attention they receive. 4. Our classes are affordable! We also offer a variety of classes that are proven, useful, practical, and real world. The techniques we teach are proven, tested and dependable. We are worth waiting for! Classes range from four to sixteen hours in length and are usually held on the weekends so you don't lose time from work. Yes we can do weekday classes. Call and let us know YOUR needs. 5. If you have a gun you want to use and don't know how...we teach you. We also check to make sure the gun is right for the purpose. If it isn't we help you place it for sale at a local gun shop. Then we find the "right gun" for you. We go gun shop with you if you want. 6. When weather permits, we do FUN DAY SHOOTS, at the Hamen Burn area at no extra cost to you. You will be invited to spend all day shooting, practicing, and developing your shooting skills while meeting other "gunners" and having a good time in the beautiful mountains we are blessed with in Colorado.
