Welcome!

Since 1991, KR Training has been offering high quality, affordable firearms and self-defense courses. We're the oldest and largest firearms training school in Central Texas, staffed by male and female instructors with decades of combined experience and national level credentials in firearms training, defensive shooting and tactics, competition shooting, threat and risk assessment, law enforcement and military service. In addition to teaching our own courses, we host multiple national level trainers every year.

Our 88 acre private training facility, the A-Zone Range, has multiple shooting bays, including a shoot house, and a comfortable classroom building with A/C and bathroom. Facility is on flat, level ground easily accessible to those with mobility limitations. We have a large inventory of loaner gear students can use during classes: guns, holsters, eye and ear protection.

We've trained thousands of students: total novices, recreational shooters, carry permit holders, those seeking serious post-LTC training, competitive shooters, and local law enforcement officers. Advanced courses require a carry permit and may have additional pre-reqs.

Call us at 512-633-8232 anytime between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Central Standard Time. The fastest way to get information is to email us. Unless a class is marked as 'SOLD OUT' on this page, there is space available.

TAKE OUR ONLINE TEXAS LTC COURSE! After you do the online course, schedule a private session or attend any of the in-house half day pistol courses to complete your required training for the Texas License to Carry.
