Anta’s Fitness and Self Defense goal is to educate and train law abiding citizens on the responsible and practical use of firearms. If you have decided to own and carry a firearm, you owe it to yourself to get properly trained. We have courses in basic gun and rifle and tactical gun and rifle training.

Why do we need firearms training? Just about everyday that you turn on the news you’ll hear of a random act of violence in our country and around the world. Each and every day the world in which we live in has become more dangerous. at Anta’s we believe that we have the greatest police departments in the world yet according to American Police Beat, the average response time for an emergency call is 10 minutes. By the time they arrive it might be too late. As law abiding citizens the second amendment gives us the right to protect ourselves. That’s where firearms training comes in. Whether you are a skilled marksman or never shot a gun or rifle before, we have a course for you.
