APT Firearms Academy testimonials

Wolves - Transparent.png

APT is a Worldclass establishment with the best trainers out there. I have taken 2 classes so far and will continue doing so for life. They care about their trainees and do everything they can for each and every one of them.



Professionalism and informative best describes all of the instructors at the APT Firearms Academy. Knowing their backgrounds in the many years of their knowledge and experience in law enforcement, and the combined years of CCW and Tactical Classes the instructors have given, has given me complete confidence in knowing that this was the right place for me. This being the second time I've been through the CCW Course, just gave me the feeling this Academy is heading in the right direction for "We the People". Their facilities are top of the line and easily to get comfortable in. I highly recommend that this be the only Academy you need to visit. Many thanks to everyone involved at the APT FIREARMS ACADEMY!

You might think you know what you are doing, until you get real training. APT is one of the best places to get training, (bar none on the planet). Bj and Kat are some of the best people you could ever meet "In your life". We flew from Washington State to Missouri for they're training and I will continue to do it. If you want training, it's one of the best. Thank you for everything you do.

APT is an absolute gem of a place - you’ll gain phenomenal skills and knowledge, and the place feels like family. Hands down our favorite place to be.

My experiences with APT, all of their instructors along with Wolfpack Security has always been top notch. The training is top tier and affordable. You WILL get your moneys worth. Their Executive Protection/ "Body Guard" classes are top notch, even if an individual doesn't choose to go into that line of work. It will help you and your family and puts everything under a microscope. See ya on the mountain!

APT goes above and beyond to make sure you receive the best training possible, no matter your skill level. Every instructor I’ve encountered makes sure you that you leave with a quality experience. I have taken two classes with them so far and will be back for more.

The two-day Red Dot Sight class was excellent. Didactic portion was concise, professional and informative. Range time taught and reinforced current techniques in using new technology.



BJ, Kat, and his instructor Cadre are beyond outstanding.  They all actually care about you as a person and want to get to know you.  They really help you grow as a human and fulfill your full potential.

The firearms training is far above industry standard.  Their diagnostics are the key.  They take the time to fix the little stuff that collects from a lifetime of doing things wrong.  The classroom mindset portions are worth the price of admission alone!

If you want a place where everyone is accepted and respected, you found it.  If you want to be around a peer group that cares about each other and doesn't try to show off or act better than you, you found it.

Please come and train with BJ, You will not regret it.  In fact, like most of us, you will probably be saying, "I wish I had done this 20 years ago!" 



The instructors take time to care about you personally.  APT makes you feel comfortable no matter your skill range.  There was so much information that could save your family that was not about shooting.  Great education for everyone.  Everyone should feel empowered to keep themselves safe and APT will help you!



what an awesome place to be!!!  Very empowering to be there, cannot wait to go back.  Wished all my Women family, friends could and would go there to experience the Mountain!!!

The Counter Ambush Driving class was a total blast!  As always they have the best of the best instructors and the knowledge is above all else.  Learning how to do maneuvers to get you away or out of situations is something that you can’t put a price on.  I would highly recommend this class to anyone who isn’t comfortable with their driving skills and even the ones who think they have it under control.  Doing it and thinking you can are two different things.  I left that class with a comfort level I didn’t have going in and will definitely take this class again.  Thank you APT for sharing your knowledge and experience with us. I would give it 10 stars if I could!

My wife and I took the First Time Gun Owners Course and highly recommend it.  The class was very personable and educational.  My wife was very nervous and overwhelmed about shooting for the first time in her life.  The instructor, Mark, pulled her aside, talked her through it, and did everything needed to make her first experience a win.  We both came away ready to take the CCW class next and look forward to taking additional training they offer.  We also had the pleasure of meeting the Owners, BJ and Kathy.  They are one of the most genuine people I've met.  Their facility is great!  They are committed to providing an atmosphere of learning and developing the skills necessary to defend yourself or your loved ones when needed. It was a pleasure doing business with fellow freedom loving Americans!!!

I love APT Academy.  Always provides extensive, realistic, practical knowledge from experts. This was not my first experience, I used to go growing up as well.  Everyone is always treated with respect, no matter the age or gender.  If you are wondering if this is the right academy for you, I can tell you that this is the only academy that I will ever go to.  Thank you for yet another wonderful experience APT!!

Truly competent trainers with real world experience, training in a diverse and well setup environment.  I have yet to find a better training environment or more competent instructors.  BJ in particular will make sure you know the reality of the world instead of a movie fantasy.



I highly recommend their 3 part series of Executive Protection Courses. It unleashed a skill set that will benefit my everyday life and help protect those I love while fueling a career path. The instructors are extremely well trained, but more importantly have the experience that validated their methods.

Just completed the Executive Protection 3 course at APT and Wolfpack Security Services with a team. The training was extremely professional and very on point for today's volatile climate around the world and here at home in the US. I would recommend the Training at APT, and Wolfpack Security Solutions to anyone who needs top Tier Security & Protection
