As Northern California’s most recognized provider of professional firearms training, ONE on ONE Firearms provides top-rated firearms and self-defense instruction. We provide real-world firearms training & self-defense classes to students in a SAFE, FUN, and INFORMATIVE learning environment. At ONE on ONE Firearms our driving passion is to educate you before, during, and after your firearms purchase.

Your small investment in your training with ONE on ONE Firearms will give you the skills and competence to use your firearm with confidence. We provide group and private instruction and always keep our group class size small. Many people, with little experience with firearms, end up at a gun counter making a purchase based on price alone or someone’s recommendation. Often they end up at a public shooting range with no training, and then ingrain bad habits from the start.  Even worse, some will just purchase a handgun, buy a box of ammo, and place it all in a drawer until they hear that ‘bump’ in the night! Don’t let that be you… Contact us today!
