Bay Area Firearms Training Group was founded in 2002  by NRA and multi-agency certified instructors with over 20 years of experience in order to provide quality firearms education,  to promote responsible civilian and law enforcement firearms ownership, management and marksmanship, and to give an opportunity for people to empower themselves and take charge of their lives.

If you need to become proficient in marksmanship, learn rapidly to protect yourself with a firearm, or just a quick intro then can get you there.   We offer family courses 7 days a week. Nothing substitutes for good practice, and repetition is what you will have in all our courses. You will experience an increase in marksmanship ability by the end of your class.
