About Us

PRP Firearms Institute was created to provide next-level training for responsible citizens just like you! Our emphasis is on Personal and Home Defense, as we recognize that family members of all ages should possess both the skills and confidence necessary should the need ever arise. 

Many adults possess a license to carry a concealed firearm, however, most who do have little to no training related to a real-life defensive encounter, in or out of the home. Our goal at PRP is to train and equip each member of your family in an appropriate discipline so that, if ever necessary, they could defend themselves, a live to tell about it.

Here in Texas, we own guns for a variety of reasons. Whether for sport, concealed carry, target shooting, hunting, tactical training, or personal safety, we all have one thing in common. Each of us have a legal and moral responsibility for the safe use and storage of our guns. We are responsible for maintaining a safe and secure environment around us. Our decision to include a gun as ONE of the tools available for securing our homes and our safety is an important decision. Be sure you make the effort to learn how to safely use your firearm.

In addition to our LTC carry licensing classes, defensive handgun, and other classes, we can structure Private lessons with individuals, couples, families, friends and neighbors, church groups. We can conduct the training in your home or office, and then meet at a shooting range to complete the live-fire portion of our lesson or class. What a great way to make learning accessible and pleasant for you!
